    Thank you AJ, for...

    -making me a proud adoptor

    -catching every pass that came your way.

    -holding on to the ball while being lead directly into a safety or linebacker

    -getting back up, when a blow knocked you down

    -sticking with us in the midst of everyone doubting your loyalty

    But most importantly... Giving my 4 year-old nephew your td ball. It meant the world to him. You are a class act.

    That was your nephew? Awesome dude, Dre talk about giving him the ball in the post-game presser. He seemed really bummed about today though, I wouldn't fault him if he chose to request a trade. I really think it'll be best for both party, we get picks to build on talent and he gets to go to a team that can actually contend for a playoff.

    That's really awesome! Congratulations man. I was a couple rows to your left near the 15 yard line.

    I can't even imagine where this team would be without AJ. He truly is a class act. Which is amazing in itself because he come from the U :headhurts:.

    I would add Slaton to that. I love the way the guy runs, he does not go down easy and fights for every yard. We need fighters like that right now.

    Thanks for that. He's a special player.

    His mama will be crying after she reads that.

    AJ is a true class act and a helluva football player. We have a handful of those on our team...(we used to not have any). I hope he stays in Houston and sees this through. He's one of my favorites

    He had a huge pop-knot above his eye after the play his helmet was ripped off. He was back on the field shortly after though. I can't help but to feel sorry for the guy. Sure, he's getting paid to do a job, but I have a feeling he's dying inside due to the losing.

    Andre was nothing short of incredible yesterday. Nice catches yards after the catch going up in traffic to haul in passes. He couldnt have done anything more without us finding out there was a "S" on his chest.

    I agree. This franchise needs to change directions before our good players start deciding to change addresses.

    I am going to seem a little desperate at the next game with a sign that says "Andre, please don't go..."

    Any other ideas?

    Houston, again.
    The thing I liked about the TD catch was that he came back and took it away from the CB. Too often he waits for the ball to get to him, but this time he went and got it. Good job AJ.

    The only way I would trade someone of his talent at the prime of his career would be for 3 first round picks. Nothing less.

    AJ did his best to take "personal control" of the game Sunday. He just played ANGRY! :kingkong:

    ..if we can find a way to make this whole team angry every week, they might be unstoppable.

    AJ may be the classiest player out of "The U" that I can ever remember. He's truly been the exception to the rule.
