Who said anything about retiring?

I told SheTexan, on the day she went ballistic after learning that Rick Smith had traded Ryans, that if she hated Rick Smith now, she'll REALLY hate him next year.

AJ is a shell of his former self, but the biggest problem, is that he's being paid the type of money given to players that are in their prime, not past it. Rick Smith is going to have to tackle that problem head on.

AJ's not going anywhere, and outside of the Jets game he's looked fine to me. It's more of an issue of not looking his way and him getting heavily rotated the first 4 weeks. A lot of overreaction to a few games here in this thread.

I kept an eye on AJ during the GB game and I thought he had a hell of a game. He was open on plenty of routes, and had Schaub not been pressured so hard the entire game, I feel like we could AJ explode on the Packers.

Schaub had a bad game. Credit Matthews and thier front 7, but Schaub did not get off his passes when he should have on quite a few occasions.

Our backfield had too many green jerseys in it that night.


Matt was pressured far too much, I think. How much of it was him holding on to the ball vs. the line collapsing (I did see Duane Brown having a rough time with Clay Matthews earlier on) I'm not sure... but there is an issue there.

i would love to know what wade smith was thinking on that play. myers had a player lined up on top of him and another to his right ... wade was the only player that could've (should've) gotten matthews but for some reason wade peeled off to his left.

As for these comments, I'm not sure how he can judge that from the games to date. The Texans haven't had to target AJ much because they've had so many leads, playing against bad offenses that they need to take few risks against. They are also not playing him as many snaps, working the new guys in.

So that combo of things means few needs to unleash AJ this season so far. There was a little bit in the Denver game, mostly because they were facing the Peyton, wanted to get some points on the board, maybe take a few more risks.
I haven't read the thread but I've been talking (way before this article) about not seeing the same player who explodes out of his breaks and can create space against just about any coverage. I am not seeing that old dominant player right now....not seeing the superstar. Just a good player. I see old 2011 Anquan Boldin out there. It may be the last leg injury but he's just not the same player in my eyes. Not yet at least...perhaps he's still recovering...donno. Everyone will decline and some guys decline faster than others (more suddenly). AJ could lose a step and still be good...but I don't see a superstar when I watch him in 2012 so far.

Wide receiver Andre Johnson is supposed to complete this trinity. He hasn't carried his share of the weight through five games.
I'm blaming it on the vegan lifestyle.

I'm throwing this out there, but did Mike Lombardi get fired from a dysfunctional organization (who seriously lended himself towards that dysfunctionality) offer an opinion that the Texans were "soft"??

Is this the same guy??




AWESOME!! I totally respect this asshat's opinions on anything???


Steph, feel free to copy and paste on his lame-ass time line!!
