    Houston Texans RB Arian Foster and WR Andre Johnson have a chance to become the third pair of teammates in NFL history to lead the league in rushing and receiving yards in the same season, reports Nick Scurfield, of HoustonTexans.com. Foster currently leads the league with 1,330 rushing yards, 52 ahead of Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew. Johnson ranks fourth in the league with 1,158 receiving yards, 61 behind league-leader WR Roddy White, of the Atlanta Falcons.

    Amazing that AJ is just 61 off the league lead after sitting out so much and hobbling around the field like a cripple when he wasn't in the locker room getting checked out.

    Dude is BEAST!

    As opposed to the nellies around here who are wanting the Texans to lose out to see a coaching change or get a higher draft pick I wouldn't mind the Texans focusing on AJ the last three weeks to get him into the history books. He has a chance at two records. Only one other WR has ever lead the league in receiving two years in a row, none have three. Only one other WR has back to back 1500 yard seasons, none have three. Screw it. Force him the ball. We know he owns the Tacks. Drop a 207 on them again AJ.

    ...and against the Titans in Tennesee would be the perfect place for it to happen, especially while being followed around by a chump like Finnegan. I hope A.J. lights him up like an Aggie bonfire.

    I doubt he gets a pass second time which wipes out any chance for the dynamic duo :kubepalm:

    In the last 4 games against the leprechaun, AJ has 34 catches for 490 yards and 5 TDs.

    Didn't Schaub lead the league in passing and AJ in receiving last season? Now the Texans have a rushing leader.

    Only Kubiak can have all of that and still not win and make the playoffs every season.

    Forget about all of the worthless stats, I say concentrate on getting valuable game-day experience for the younger players who we want to keep on our roster, maximizing the value of draft position, and keeping our most valuable players on the sidelines in these utterly meaningless games to protect their health and longevity for future games that really count for something.

    I understand where you are going with this but, it ain't gonna happen.
    First the players want to play...regardless of what we think.
    Second Kubs will let them play-otherwise he will lose his good 'ole boy image of being a players coach.

    Does Kubiak not get any credit for MAKING them the number 1 rusher/receiver/passer? When those players succeed, it's all on them, but when the team fails, it's all on Kubiak?

    Sure he does which makes it even worse that he can't win with them. Give a good HC those elements and they are taking their teams to the playoffs almost every season.

    To the first part of your question players are not succeeding if they are not winning. I don't care what the stat sheet says. To the second part of your question, yes.

    Can't we have both?

    For the record, if it meant a head coaching change, this nellie would be all for losing out. I don't give a squat about draft position. There are enough squandered lottery picks on this team as it is.

    We have been getting both all season, AJ getting his stats and losing that is. I don't see that changing.

    The thing is, with a new HC, there's no guarantee that he CAN continue to maintain those elements. For all we know, with a new HC, the offense will flounder. So yes, in a perfect world, give the elements under Kubiak as they perform under Kubiak to another HC who can bump them up to winning, give me that HC. But for all we know, we can get a new HC who can't utilize Foster or Schaub in the way that they've been sucessful in the past.

    That being said, I'm all for seeing a new HC.

    On another note, how much of Foster's success do you guys think is because of scheme? It's not often that a UDFA comes in and becomes the leagues leading rusher in his second season. I really hope that, should we get a new HC, Foster continues to perform at an elite level.

    Little. This same line and scheme produced next to nil prior to Foster. Now, it's the scheme that created the league's leading rusher? I don't think so.

    It's garbage time. Since Foster's in a contract year... time to drag him down and throw it to Andre all day long!

    Lol.

    Just win, Texans.
