    I don't want to get into the playoffs (or a must-win game with the Titans) only to have him unavailable because they rushed him back too soon.

    I'm not counting on it.

    This injury looked just like his last one. I didn't think that one would be 2-3 weeks like the FO was saying either.

    I think WR is a 1st-round concern now.

    When we play our first playoff game, we need to do the right thing and make sure AJs jersey gets retired at halftime.

    Seriously though, I want him playing in the playoff games. He deserves it more than anyone.

    Not if we can find one in free agency or through a trade and get a quality guy. There were a lot of good options last off season. I'd like to use one more draft to keep building this defense into a powerhouse for years to come. We definitely need an upgrade at WR though.

    AJ's injury is a bad hamstring injury. It seems he has caught one of those that just lingers on and on. It's hard to expect him at 100% at any point in this season at this point.

    He injured his right leg yesterday. He had surgery earlier this season on his left leg hamstring.

    Sounds like he's buying what AJ's selling him to me, that it's not as bad as the previous injury. If that does turn out to be the case, I say sit him for the rest of the season and let him heal. I think we can secure the division pretty handily at this point with him out of the lineup.

    Make that 2 bad hamstring injuries. His last injury was his right hamstring. This is his left.

    I'd sit him until the playoffs then.

    And even then, only if it's a must-win. If it's not a must-win and the Texans have already clinched the division before then, then rest him until the playoffs.

    Some caller on 790 this morning (Matt & Adam's show) referenced
    Dre as "Black Yao." God I hope that guy is wrong.

    Yao in his respective sport never had the talent level that AJ has in his. I don't think anyone would consider Yao one of the top 5 greats at his position, but that can easily be said with AJ, even when hurt.


    But i do hope the trend stops with AJ getting hurt like Yao though.

    No comparison in my mind. Yao's problems were that he was just too freakishly big for his foot bones. Andre seems to just have some bad luck.

    There will be several FA Wr's available next yr.

    Colston and Meachem, only 1 will be re-signed.

    D. Jackson, V.Jackson, D.Bowe etc...

    This is the way I would get the WR2. Also it's a very good yr for WR's in the draft. You could probably draft a guy like Rishard Matthews (who I really like) from Nevada. Or Jarius Wright from Arkansas in the 4th rd. (Really good value.)

    One more defensive heavy draft would put this defense over the top. IMHO

    I don't think the offense can afford another defense heavy draft. This next draft will need more parity, which is fine because this is the most parity we've seen between both sides of the ball ever.

    If we can secure a first round bye in the playoffs that would of course be the best thing. It would give everyone on the team some rest, and God knows they need it. If we could do that it would mean we won most if not all of our last games and would be an auspicious start for TJ.
