I know what you meant. I was pointing out that AJ had a 90 yd 1 TD game and was rusty as hell. Wait til you see him school Ed Reed and the rest of the Ravens D next Sunday.

AJ!
Would rep if I could.

I'm so glad the team could get this done for AJ. So, so glad.

it's not about him being the 'sentimental old vet mascot type guy'. he's going to be the texans first hall of famer in franchise history, he has busted his ass for this team and played at the highest level for a WR in this league for years. A great player like him deserves his shine and a chance to to play in the playoffs.

He deserves far more than that. He deserves for this team and organization to put this team in position to get him and this team a ring. I want to see A.J win a superbowl in a texans uniform. We have all the talent to do it, rather it is this season or next, we will get there.

sure, but everybody has this sentimental "win one for andre, he's worked so hard in this organization" mentality, which is usually always associated with the aging vet who's sticking it out for one last shot at the title, not your best player.

Its more about him sticking with the texans. He could of easily went somewhere else and made A LOT more money than we gave him and already won a few superbowls by now. But he choose to stay, so that makes it a little more about winning it for him.
