    I think they really need to come up with more plays to TRY and get Andre the ball.....I understand most of the time he has double coverage but many times its like the Carr just stopped throwing to him...The man can jump because hes sooo big so there has to be a way to develop more plays around him...

    Even though Dre can be that Moss/Owens receiver, and we should turn him into just that, we have to open up the offense more first. He'll be much more dangerous once we have so many weapons and options that they can't focus on him too much. Look at Indy. Peyton can get everyone on offense that's eligible a touch on the ball. Now when you think of the Colts you think Manning, Harrison, but so many of their players get the ball. When I heard this Sunday that Edgerrin James is the leagues #1 rusher I was like what!? Mmhmm... yeah, yeah he is. The thing is you wouldn't know that because of the passing. Think about how we have won games with Andre, but then look at the games when Jabbar got a TD, J. Wells, Billy, D. Davis, and even Corey Brad, like last week. That's right, keep smiling at your screen because I know that's what you're doing right now. It's a beautiful thing isn't it? So if we can mix all that up, and hopefully like I said before, use more 3 wide or 4 wide sets, maybe a little more Shotgun, that's when Andre can get loose. I still think Moran Norris should be running on short downs and getting a few passes thrown to him. I might even want to see Davis and Wells in a dual HB type of set like a Pro form, but hey as long as we win... :thumbup

    Houston, again.
    Anyone notice how much more productive the Dolts are this year now that Stockely is in the mix? IMO, you need a set of quads these days not just trips to be a prolific offense. Two hot WR's a good RB and a good QB. Naturally an o-line that is worth something is required. Without the two WR's defenses are getting to good at shutting down the single good reciever.

    Right now AJ is playing on PURE Athletic abilty alone! Once he learns the fundamentals of being a Receiver LOOK OUT!!!! He should workout this off season with Jerry Rice and pick his brain! :hmmm:

    i think that i would put reggie wayne as the 4th member of the quad. last year he developed into what the colts drafted him for. maybe we could pair him with andre when he is a free agent either next year or after. but i think he will want 1st wr money because he thinks he is better than he actually is, much like price when he left buffalo. he is good but has been made better because of the play of harrison.
