    I just think Andre has been putting in a quiet effort and if not for him, Matt doesn't have as many yards receiving last week cuz it seemed like he was the only one catching anything and I just miss #80 scoring a TD.

    I think AJ has been making marked improvement over the past few weeks. He's starting to look more and more of his old self.

    Yup. Even more encouraging, he's been quoted many times the past few weeks claiming the same thing.

    He has said the work in the training room has really helped him and he feels like he's getting better by the week.

    But even "his old self" was never much of a TD machine. In fact, I dont think he's ever had double digit TD's for a season. Not his fault, just the way the offense runs.

    Dr. CND foreshadowed Andre's potential decline.

    I still think we'll see some old school Andre when we really need him.

    Consider it marked down. I'd love to see him have a break out beastly game as well and what better team to do it against.

    GO AJ!

    GO TEXANS!

    It's going to be his lead-in game to the Lions Thanksgiving Day game where the whole country will be watching AJ and Megatron. There will be a lot of talk about AJ being over the hill but he's going to want to show people that he's still one of the best on a big stage with Calvin Johnson. AJ is getting better every week and I think he's going to start taking over games when the situation lets him beginning now. Also Matt had 95 yards passing last week, he's gonna want to throw it around tomorrow.

    Foster needs a rest, I'm smelling an aerial gameplan.

    AJ is doing what I expected, recovering. I just wished he was not getting clobbered on these short passes. He has had some passes bounce off him that I question but as long as he is near 100% come playoffs I am cool.

    So should I play OD over Decker? I know OD practiced this week, but, still don't know if Kubes will go easy on him due to his hip injury. I was planning to play Decker, but, my "gut" tells me to go with OD. BUT, if we get a sizable lead over the Kittie's, Kubes might sit some of his starters, including AJ and OD.

    The Denver/SD game should be a good one, IMHO. PM always seems to pull off some kind of "magic" when he goes to the air. Decker has become a fav target. WHAT TO DO!!!???:overreact:

    CRAP, I hate trying to second guess this stuff! :wild:

    I've never understood why we don't throw more fades to him in the endzone.

    I think one of the reasons is that we like to pound the rock. If we want to keep the PA intact, the fade is out of place since it requires a quick throw. Just my thinking.

    Decker has 7 TD's in the last 6 games. I would be extremely hesitant to put him on my bench.

    Legit reasoning. Foster taking it in sure has been successful.

    Everytime we're in the RZ, I want em to just lob it to AJ on a Fade Route and let him make the play. Out of the 2 times they did, they wouldve been TDs if Champ Baileys foot didnt hit the ball, and then the deep throw in the EZ where I believe the defender was holding AJs jerseys to prevent the catch. I forgot what team it was, I wanna say the Bills.
