Default Dwight Jones -UFA- Already a Texans Legend !!!!

I felt this story was so Awesome - it was worthy of 2 Threads !!!!!!

The 610 interview was abolutely Epic, Entertaining and Enticing !!!


(Listen via Link Below)
http://houston.cbslocal.com/2012/04/...andre-johnson/

Whatever the guy does after this is gravy after that call/interview . . .

I know the lowdown - all the physical gifts in the world without the Brains, and attitude to deliver - But hey, the confidence and swagger is exactly where it needs to be !!

Don't forget H-Town - I am 6-3, 230 and I run a Fo Fo Six - Let's Go - "I am the next Andre Johnson." and I will be starting as a rookie free agent on the other side, Baby !!!!

I love this guy - Go Dwight !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, first off, Andre doesn't do any talking, he lets his on the field play do that for him. Take notes, kid.

Great for the team if he can back it up.

If not, he's just another windbag..

Good to see he has an edge; but too many times they don't turn out. I hope this guy can turn into something and contribute.

Hard to believe just a year ago some of us were creaming our pants at the thought of drafting this guy.

If he admires Andre as much as he says he does - then hopefully he will emulate Andre's demeanor and Get to Work !!!

Either way - I find this dude EXTREMELY Entertaining - I am Totally on board with Dwight "The Interview" Jones - Unless of course
he becomes a distraction -

I'm ok w what he said and what he's trying to do. He should come in w a chip on his shoulder. Looking forward to seeing him on the field. Hopefully he's better than our current Jones WR.

Default Re: Dwight Jones -UFA- Already a Texans Legend !!!!

I get heartburn just reading about this guy.

He's definitely made a name for himself. I mean, other than Case Keenum...this Dwight Jones guy is all we're talking about. Sounds like he understands basic self-promotion and marketing techniques.

If he puts it all together, then so be it. I just think he's puffing himself up because he went undrafted and that's gotta' sting for a guy like him. Like he's talking himself up more for him than for anybody else.

Have the Texans ever had a player on the team who could be considered a distraction? I'm struggling to remember, maybe they've just been lucky, maybe its a mix of their character policy coupled with never having had much talent for people to start yapping about themselves about until recently. Might be interesting to get one!

Here's video highlights of a game with TJ Yates throwing to Dwight Jones at UNC (I think it was two years ago).

7 catches for 198 yards and two TDs in this game.

Arian wasn't too happy about being UDFA and had issues adjusting. He turned out ok. Let's give this dude a chance. After all, he IS a Texan.

There is a difference between having inner anger/frustration and being a loudmouth cocky player who self-promotes.

With one guy, it was fueling him to get busy and stay under the radar.

With the other guy, he's crowning himself from day 1.

BIG difference. Yeah, it might just be a difference in how each guy expresses his angst....but you'd rather have someone quietly chipping away rather than drawing attention to himself by talking trash and bragging. If he doesn't produce at camp, quickly, he'll be back to promoting New Years' Eve parties.

I just hope between TJ, Andre, and Arian that we can get this kid on the right path. He's got all the physical tools and abilities to be the guy on the other side of Andre.

If he doesn't screw it up.

They're two different type of guys. Not everyone is into inner self and all the stuff Arian is into. Whatever it takes to get you prepared to do your job.

Guess I don't care what anyone does so long as come camp time/ everyone is healthy and ready get their Texan on.

This year, I'm going to wrestle a hippopotamus, beat up chuck norris with chuck norris' own beard, scale a mountain with just my pinky, and be the next Andre Johnson. Me and Dwight Jones, we're going to do all these things

The more I hear/read about Jones in the media this week the less and less I like him. Glad we got him for peanuts, I don't think he'll be on the field for more than a preseason series at most. He'll be a party promoter by mid 2013.

Agree with pretty much everything here. I really could care less about having some TO/Chad JOhnson/Deangello Hall type of player on the Texans. Players like that have shown time and time again that they are a lot more trouble and than they are worth in the end.

You're undrafted. Let your play do the talking and "show us", don't tell us.
