    Nice article! AJ epitomizes everything good about this team. His dedication to this franchise is admirable.

    Great article. Does anyone else feel like this team doesn't rely on AJ as much?

    As hard as it was to lose him for a big chunk of last year, it almost seems like Kubiak and Schaub are trying to limit the amount of contact he takes early in the season.

    Either that or the hamstring clip that we heard about last year really did affect his acceleration.

    What do you guys think? He looked like the AJ of old in game 1 and on that long bomb to start yesterday's game. But its not like him to be quiet for the majority of the game in the middle.

    I desperately want to see him in action in the playoffs with a legitimate QB getting him the ball. He deserves a shot at a superbowl.

    HOFamer, baby, and a guy you want on your side. Texans have a chance to do something special this season.

    Every player should pump it up a notch for Andre, man.

    Johnson is the only Houston player I have ever wanted the team to trade because I felt he deserved to win.

    I am glad he stayed and I hope he makes a big show in the playoffs.

    Love that quote...
    and I hope the defensive backfield players share this same sentiment.

    I think of AJ as an old West gunfighter who is on the down hill slope, but do you want to be the guy to find out if he is faster than you? Champ played him well. If all our O players can handle their guy someone will break free. Schaub seemed much more accurate on his passes at least until beaten up. I don't want to hear anyone saying Matt cannot throw deep. I am hoping Jean will be the eventual WR1 as he seems in same mould as Johnson in size and temperment. Just think what would have happened if our RT had more than 3 starts? The right side is coming together and that resolves one of my concerns. KJ seems to be resolving another.

    Champ did a great job on him yesterday. He had a chance on that TD that got broken up by Champ's foot, and he saved a near INT on that over the shoulder throw that would be tough for anyone to catch. He just didnt get a lot of looks. But he's still the man and with Revis out of the picture to shut him down for a week, He can definitely put up some huge numbers this year. When AJ makes a drop or makes a mistake, he always makes up for it with a huge and clutch catch.
