    Absolutly, if he doesn't go to the pro-bowl there is something wrong.

    Andre had a man-sized game today. Prior to this season I would have called him a top-5 WR, but he's really put up numbers for us so far. If he can do it with consistency across the season I'd call him top-3, but just being honest, #1? I'm not sure he's shown that yet.

    I still remember a bunch of nincompoops calling me out when I called him "T.O without the attitude." Tell me I'm wrong. Plays the exact same big, physical, fast game.

    That is a horrible reason to say no. The way he came down with it made it almost impossible to hold that ball.

    Looking at the wide receivers in the league, it is hard to point out one that is definatly better than Andre.

    Moss isnt himself in Oakland, and T.O...for all his ability.. his attitude is a big minus for him.

    Chad Johnson maybe? I dunno.. id have to agree that Andre Johnson is the best WR in the league.. but hes probably tied with 2 or 3 others.

    He is by far the best player on the team and has to be mentioned as one of the best in the NFL now.

    I think a majority of the board has always been high on Dre.

    Steve Smith is another top candidate you have to consider IMO, as well as Marvin Harrison though his age is slowing him. Andre does many great things and should be one of our brightest stars for years to come (and will continue to get better), but he is still somewhat unpolished IMO.

    "A bunch" was probably only "a few," but I still remember the thread.

    AJ is a very good receiver, but Moulds is helping AJ a lot right now. You have two very good receivers who make each other look better. That is why I like our receiver core. Add in Walters and Daniels and you have very effective combinations which make each other look even better. Its a team game and AJ is benifiting from Team Play.............

    Well, every single player has supporters and detractors. It is easy for the vocal few to seem to be many. I just don't think you were fighting an uphill battle on this board talking about Dre being a great player.
