I don't know about 10 TDs, but he should get 1200 or more yards.

i dunno with the other WR we drafted in the forth and the kinda speed he has, i think it will take some of the pressure off johnson, plus if our running game stays consistent that will help.

If our line is better this year I could see him getting 1100-1200 yards and 8-12 tds.

Lets just hope DD isn't our 2nd leading receiver again. DD is good, but come on, there are other receivers we need to throw to. I think Johnson will have his breakout year this year. Usually the receivers 3rd year is where they really start to dominate.

Last year was his breakout year... This year he will just shame the opposing DB's!

what's wrong with DD having the second most receptions on our team? look at ladamien tomlinson, he always ends up at the top of the chargers receiving list. and he's a top 10, some could argue top 5 running back in the league.

referring to LT.

exactly, nothing wrong with DD getting alot of receptions. screen passes to a back can be very effective especially if you're getting alot of pressure on your QB. the screen can make a defense play alot more honest because they're gonna get burned if they don't.

There is a different between throwing a lot of designed screens to your RB because he is devastating when used in that way (the Chargers and Thomlinson) and throwing a lot of dump-offs to your RB because your primary target was covered and the pass-rush is about to reach you (us and Davis). It's no criticism of Davis to wish he had less passes thrown his way, as it would suggest Carr was actually getting some sort of protection.

Mathis will probably limited in p.t. early. He needs to learn the offense and adapt to competition far exceeding what he is used to.

Of course Andre will have a great season. I think his presence alone this year will change things for us offensively just like it has since he's come into the league.

Hopefully we found someone to take some of the pressure of AJ with Jerome Mathis and it will open up more plays for him downfield and on short paterns. I think with the addition of a legitimate deep threat to go with AJ he will blossom into one of the top 5 WR in the league this year.

Very good point. When you have a WR of AJ's stature and yard after catch potential, design moderate range passes and let him do his thing.

Did it seem to anybody else like they quit running that AJ linebacke drag route in the 2nd half of the season? That seems like a great AJ route IMO--get him the ball 10 yards downfield with just the DB's between him and the end-zone--I'll take that gamble a lot.
