    How many does this guy drop every week? Dropped the quick slant, then drops the deeper pass in the CLUTCH situation.

    Wonder if Kubiak will openly comment on his butterfingers?

    Then again, Im sure its Carrs fault for putting the pass right in his numbers and hands.

    Where are the "Trade Johnson" threads? This guy must be wearing tefllon gloves...criticism doesn't stick but neither does the ball :)

    He's not used to a pass that far down the field . In fact it caught him by surprise he thought it was already dumped off . I know it took 3 points of the board cause theres no way in hell Carr was throwing a TD .

    So true...

    You know what else I'm tired of. Carr throwing INTs and short throws on 3rd and long.

    Andre and the rest of the receiving corp cant do junk in garbage time. Tired of dropped passes, we could have taken a shot at the end zone or at least had a 50/50 chance of a field goal (you never know with our guys)

    I loved when AJ dropped that ball that hit him "right in the breadbasket" (to quote the announcers). I loved the part where they were shocked that he dropped a pass. They said "you won't see that very often" which was my first clue that they don't see many Texans games. Johnson constantly gets a pass on his "Corey Bradford hands".

    LOL, my friend and I found that funny as well, but when you are the worse team in the league you get the worse announcers, and BOY were they bad.

    AJ gets a pass, he needs the HEAT brought down on him like CARR gets from the coaching staff.

    Yeah, Carr's passes that hit Andre in the chest or hands, is not AJs fault for dropping them. Osama Bin Carr lubes the ball up before he throws it to AJ.

    Rice and TO were booed in SF for having drops. AJ is a good WR.

    Never said I hated the guy, thats just your perception of wanting to be negative, its ok, it was a horrible loss.

    But as Herv stated, he gets away with having "COREY BRADFORD HANDS"

    Not really, cause Bradford couldn't catch anything. Easy or difficult catchs,
    Bradford managed consistantly - he dropped most of them.
    AJ makes a high percentage of tough catchs, really spectacular catchs.
    You see that one hander today ?
    Its obviously a concentration thing. He anticipates a difficult pass, the effort
    gets his undivided attention. Anticipating an easy reception, his mind wanders
    to running after the catch and he loses concentration on the incoming ball.

    He's not part of the solution so obviously he must be part of the problem. You ever notice how alot of other receivers after they make a spectacular catch it usually starts out with look at the move he uses right here on the LOS or look at the crisp route running. Whatever they usually say. However with Johnson it's never like that. The guy needs to get better. He relies to much on his physical talents. He has all the tools he just isn't elite all the time.

    How can you have over 3,000 posts and actually believe that Corey Bradford couldn't catch anything. You have to know that's bull right? Bradford was the master of the acrobatic catch. He made catches that AJ wishes he could make. The difficult catches were never a problem for Corey Bradford. They were his stock and trade.

    Corey couldn't catch the simple passes. He'd catch a 30 yard pass one handed while leaping in the air upside down and come down in stride on one play and then drop one placed right in his hands while he stood still with nobody around him on the next play. He was money if it looked like it might make a highlight reel but useless if you needed a first down to keep a drive alive on 3rd and 8.

    That's why I say AJ has Corey Bradford Hands. Not nearly as bad a case of them as Corey had but he still drops the gimmies way too often.
