    "as long as we win, i'm OK with it" ... in response to potentially lower stats with a strong run game.

    is there a major receiver in the past 20 years that you wouldnt outright laugh at if they made that statement?

    andre johnson is the best receiver in the NFL because of what he does in the passing game. he's in a league of his own because he's entirely committed to that statement, as we saw today. if andre needs 1500 yards to help the texans win, that's what he'll do. if he needs 400 yards and lowering the boom on linebackers, that's what he'll do. it's about dang time that the nation woke up to AJ's talent, but i dont think they'll ever know how great he really is.

    let's get that man into the playoffs so the world can see the humble, team first, and completely unstoppable monster that we call Andre Johnson. the goal for the Texans is the playoffs, not because anyone's selling themselves short, but because anyone with a lick of sense will get out of AJ's way when he cranks it to that playoff level.

    edit: scoot's had a couple (is 20 a couple?) bourbons. :D

    I don't like his attitude. Put him on the bench and see if he'll start acting like a primadonna. :-P

    I honestly believe he re-ignited the entire team with his post-injury
    performance. Hopped to the locker room, drank some Battle Red
    Kool-Aid, and came out to rescue his team. Good game. Way
    for the players to bail out their coach.

    The only problem with that comparison is that AJ actually had a tangible hand in the comeback. Without that jumpball TD, we were toast.

    Willis Reed showed up, hit a few shots then went to the bench.

    ... deserves a thread of his own. He put this team on his back and willed us to victory. I want the Texans to make the playoffs and win the Super Bowl not so I can enjoy it, but rather so AJ (and the other guys!) can finally receive the recognition and accolades he so unquestionably deserves.

    Thank you for being your humble, hard-working, dominant, and inspiring self. You are a leader in every sense of the word. Thank you #80.

    Andre was completely dominant today. Beautiful to watch. His sidekick KW was also pretty damn good.

    I gotta put this out there....

    Every time I watch the Texans, AJ makes an unbelievable catch. I can't help myself, saying clearly and out loud, "Andre Mother F...ing Johnson. Best WR EVER!!!!".

    Either I gotta problem or my blood runs BATTLE RED! Regardless, Andre Mother F....ing Johnson! Epic mancrush.

    "They came and told me he was done. He had a pretty good ankle (injury). I think we were down by seven and they were fixing to kick a field goal at that time, so it didn't look good. We block the field goal. He had them re-tape him. He walked over to me and said 'I'm playing,"' Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "He tells me he's playing, he's playing."


    I hope he is really enjoying this success right now, no one deserves it more than him. I'll echo the earlier thoughts, its great to be able to literally be happier for that guy and the others on this team than you are for yourself. Are you kidding me with that catch? That's two 4th downs that wind up getting us a win (Miami).

    #80 is now a legend in my book.

    He is beyond being the best in the league.

    In regards to his ankle injury, he's going to have an MRI done tomorrow. Andre said that, he doesn't think its too bad. But we'll have to wait and see what "too bad" is. Hopefully, nothing that few days rest and some treatment can't fix. That guy is just a beast and would hate to loose him for the Cowboys game.
