by far (with respect to Demeco), AJ is the best player on our football squad... what worries me, is that he has YET to sign a contract extension. AJ has been a model franchise player for the texans (no holdouts, no trouble, no media blow ups) and if we lose him, we are going to take 10-15 steps back in the quest for respectability. I believe he has 1 more year (maybe 2) on his current contract, and it appears he wants out. I think players like AJ want their money, but they truly want to win. The NFL seems to be one of the most prideful leagues around, and some players will not simply swallow their pride and lose. Besides, any team would throw AJ any amount of money he demands because he is young, and he produces, and he will not generate any amount of trouble. So, what do we do??? Have mcnair show up at his house on his hands and knees and an open check book and beg AJ to stay?? AJ's silence seems to be out of frustration,.. he knows he has the ability to be a great, and he wants to lament himself in that stature by winning and going to the playoffs and possibly winning the superbowl. The guy grew up idolizing jerry rice, and he models his behavior, work ethic, and game after him. Would jerry rice hang around??? Geez... if AJ goes.. we are knee deep in some **** and i will be seriously bummed out... but he will still be one of my favorites!!
