It's only two games and of course there will come a point when dams have tape on this guy and hell still have to find a way to beat double coverage, but...we may just have two #1 wr's here!!

With Posey looking good at the end of last season and Martin having all the tools to develop, we are looking set moving forward at receiver!!

There was a time when I was scared of AJ eventually declining, I'm beginning to believe that we will overcome that when it comes and maybe even be able to make use of him for a few years after he's #1 material if this cast of young guns continue to step up to the plate. Of course it's a very positive right now too.

The oline needs to give Schaub the time and comfidence to hit these guys and there is work to be done there, but today we've seen another clutch QB, performance, our rookie receiver step up to #1 when it mattered, our backup RB put in a great performance, just sort the oline because we have the playmakers.

That's what I'm thinking. I can't remember when we've had a receiver step up & take "Andre's place"

Hop did.

Like you, I'm not saying we have two #1s..... but we've definitely got a #2

Walter and Davis stepped in good when Dre went down but you are right ONE receiver has never stepped up like this.

I like that he and AJ have different skill sets. AJ has never been a jump ball receiver, but a great route runner with good hands. Hop looks like a guy who can catch it in traffic and grab the ball out of the air. They will complement each other well and will give Schaub a real #2.

Not true at all. AJ has always been able to go up in the air with the best of them and bring it down. His play today was further evidence of that. Kubiak has failed to design plays to get AJ the ball in the red zone over the years. AJ can go up in the air and muscle his way into a catch against anyone pretty much.

The previous youngest was Patrick Patterson (21-118), who scored on a punt return on 11/6/11.

At 21 years and 101 days old, DeAndre Hopkins became the youngest player in NFL history to score a touchdown in overtime. #Texans

According to the NFL, DeAndre Hopkins is the first rookie WR to catch a TD in OT since Santonio Holmes on Dec. 31, 2006. #Texans

Hop reminds me of fitz.

The less than ideal top end speed. The ability to high point the ball and make catches over defenders. The good route running.

And the dreads.

Fitzgerald is a beast with the ball in his hands. Roddy & Boldin, while they can get some YaC..... not in the same class as Fitz & Andre.

At least we haven't seen anything on that level yet.

Nuk...

Just doesn't sound as good as Nuke, right? I mean he's a football palyer, he's a badd a55. Nuke is more descriptive of what we want right?

I mean we could have
