The gentle giant is finally beginning to be recognized nationally. Good for him.
Fantastic read, thanks for posting.
If I'm being truly honest with myself, I actually wonder if I'm more of a Texans fan or an AJ fan. And I don't want to know the answer.
Man, I usually don't read the whole article...but I read that one...
Man love for Dre!
I know what you mean. I like AJ so much that a part of me wants him to go to another team so he can win a Super Bowl. Dude deserves it that much.
There have been very few like AJ. Not a phony bone in the man's body. I'm trying to think of who could be mentioned in the same breath. Earl was dynamic and reserved like Andre. Closest I can think of. There are others I'm sure, but I can't think of who.
If not just football then you can add Olajuwan to the list. Houston has been blessed with some hign class guys. Hopefully AJ can retire here with a couple championships like Hakeem.
AJ is the Texans version of Earl.
I've often said that I don't want my boy idolizing entertainers. But since AJ is one of his heroes, I have absolutely no problem with it. My childhood hero was Earl, so it's full circle. I plan to get my son an AJ jersey this season (he also wants a Brady jersey, lol!).
Reading "annual playoff funk" makes me sad. This guy deserves the playoffs as much or more than this entire city deserves it.
With that in mind, I hope ALL Texans fans attending games read this article. And when it's time to open your lungs for our defense, HOLD NOTHING BACK!! I'm not sure how many games I can attend this year, but the ones I do attend, I plan on leaving the stadium without a voice. It is the least we can do for our home team, and it is what we HAVE to do for our part in helping AJ reach the Promise Land.
Reading this kind of story gets me FIRED UP! I haven't felt this way in a long time, maybe going back to the Capers years when the team was young and the fanbase was energized with having football back in H-town.
This is the year, Texans fans!! BRING IT!!! FOR AJ!!!
How is Andre Johnson overlooked, when he's been considered one of the top 2 WR's for the last like 3 years or so?
Maybe it's about fan perception?
If AJ had Schaub from the beginning , he'd be a no doubt HOF player .
Yep ... but he may be a top five all time great after it's all said and done .
No. 2 GOAT after Rice, IMO.
I think the answer to this is pretty easy. Ask yourself what you would do if he was traded or lost in free agency. Would you stop following the Texans and pick up his new team or would you keep following the Texans? For me it's a no brainer. I'd follow the Texans as closely as I do now and look for Andre's highlights on Sports Center.
Personally I think AJ is already in the HOF on 1st ballot as of now.
Enjoyed the read as I do everythng about AJ. What a credit to sports and to human race.
Alright I'm coming in taking a break from mowing ... whats goat ?
Greatest of All Time.
The Texans NEED to make the postseason. AJ is 30 now. The GOAT needs a ring!
Sure, good point. I was thinking football but you're absolulely correct about the Dream. I'd think Nolan would be in the mix to represent so Astos action.
