    I'd make old jokes, but when a guy does what AJ does... no sir, I tip my hat to you.

    The dude looks a different player than he was, is intelligent enough to adjust.

    He's always had speed about him, but I don't think he's ever relied on speed, which bodes well for his legs slowing a bit, you look at the TD catch he didn't look anywhere near as fast as he used to but took great angles and watched his up front blocking.

    You would have had to be in the game day thread to understand. Tongue in cheek!

    He continues to amaze. Sucks that the D had to suffer for him to show he's still got it, but whatever I'm sure they'll figure it out.

    Old is a state of mind. Don't think it's on his mind.

    I think this goes to show that Andre's decline in production is a byproduct of play calling & game situations more so than just his age.

    Sometimes the old lion shows everyone he still has some fight left in it. That was a great game and I didn't think they'd win it. Great effort by the offense.

    I never bought into this idea that AJ had "lost it" when many in here were saying that all season. I remember AJ beating over guys in pre season looking like the same guy. He just needed more reps for the offense to get him the ball and they have in the last few games. This is a running team either way.

    This was AJ's best game of his career though. I loved it! He broke his own records and won the game on a huge play that he took to the house. AJ will always be the man.

    With a SB ring he would probably get in for sure. Without one it might be sort of tough. AJ's numbers are great in yards and but he'll lack TD numbers. I think he has a good chance, but it might take him a while on a the voting ballots.
