    Anyone who still thinks A Davis was just as good as AJ should read this:

    Am I allowed to post this?

    I think he should be higher than 7th. IMO, only Manning and Brady are more irreplaceable.

    If those really are your new plates, I am very disappointed. You should have used these plates:

    I don't think 7th is bad at all. I mean there are so many positions where there are great irreplaceable players on each team.

    Troy Polumolu and Ed Reed are irreplaceable no question as safeties.

    Mario and Jared Allen are irreplaceable as DE's.

    Brady, Brees, and Manning are irreplaceable as QB's.

    There are several irreplaceable O lineman.

    This is hard to rank.

    If you followed the board back then, there were quite a few. I can recall at least a few from the "All your eggs in one basket" thread as well

    For example

    I've followed the board since before Andre Davis was ever here. I don't recall anyone ever saying AD is as good as AJ. Saying that he did a fine job in AJ's stead is not the same as saying he is as good as AJ. That's not to say some troll didn't make a silly statement like that. We've seen that. But, to act like that was some sort of prevelent idea is inaccruate.

    No, not the text - the plate.

    i'm guessing he means the Texans logo thing, not the actual digits/letters.

    Not sure why you are taking this quite so literally. I dont think anyone would ever say that the two are exactly equal--thats crazy. I was implying that I remember, and still see, some posts doubting AJ's irreplaceability because of Andre Davis' performance in during the 2007 season. Thats what this thread is about

    I believe gtexan lives in Virginia or somewhere in that area. Might be hard to find one of those plates up there. :cowboy1:

    I do indeed! Maybe I should have included that in the photo...ok, changed it

    Something sad happened to me only a short while after I got the plates.... someone actually asked me what the "Toxins" were. :(

    We need more national media coverage...

    gtexan need to improve your reading skills. The quote of mine said he did a fine job and he did. Never said he was AJ equal. The entire point of my thread was which one player could not be replaced and the team be successful. My choice was QB Matt Schaub. If AJ goes out this year, Aj has a decent replacement. Productivity not the same but does not immediately regulate team to "uh oh" status. Schaub goes out for season and we have a 2nd stringer with little more than potential (though I like him) and Rex Grossman that no other team wanted. Again, I never said AD= AJ.

    Before flinging around insults to others reading skills, maybe you should check yours. I said just a few posts (5) above yours:

    I would never ever want something to happen to AJ.

    That being said, the Texans of 2007 are likely a little different than the Texans of today. Because of:

    Another year for Schaub and rest of offense
    Steve Slaton
    Alex Gibbs

    I hope to never have to find out how irreplaceable AJ is.

    I think that because of the offensive scheme we run we can get by with back up players in some spots more easily than other teams can.

    I think all this irreplaceable stuff is just for arguments sake. AJ is a beast. I'll wait to quantify how much of a beast he til he retires.
