    After next week I believe he becomes the second player ever to lead the league in receiving yards in consecutive seasons.

    Yep. Since the merger, only Jerry Rice has done it.

    Where do you think AJ ranks with Jerry Rice, Tim Brown, and Chad Johnson/Ochocinco? Those guys all led their conferences in receiving yards 3 years in a row, with J/O leading his conference four years in a row.

    I say he has to finish his career to know for sure, but he's a distant second behind Rice, but at least equal to Brown and J/O.

    I think you're underestimating Mr. Mittens!

    Is it possible to retire his jersey while he's still playing?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the article only says Harrison and AJ...I don't think Rice has done it.

    Rice is the only other player to lead the league in receiving yards two years in a row.

    Harrison is the only other player to go for 1500+ two years in a row. Rice missed that mark by 1 whole yard.

    Oh, ok, so Rice is only mentioned because he's the only WR to lead the league two years in a row in receiving not because he surprassed 1,500 yds two years in a row. Thanks.

    Jerry Rice is the best WR the NFL has ever had, IMHO, and he's AJs mentor. Can't get any better than that. We are blessed to have AJ on our team!! Hope he remains a TEXAN!!!

    Let's make it 3 years with 1,500+ yards so he can be the 1st player ever

    Rick - Please sign AJ to a lifetime contract!

    I wonder how much better AJ's numbers would be if Mr. Mittens could thow something other then a 1 yard stop route.

    Andre is the man, pure and simple. On a side note, you guys notice his uncle wearing a Dolphins jersey? WTF? Blood is thicker than water, if my nephew was playing in the NFL you can damn sure bet I'd be sporting his jersey. Even if, by some twisted way of fate, it was a cowboy jersey.
