damn! all this time we've been wasting time trying to find a Williams!(roydell, mike and paul)
we could have had Chad Johnson with that strategy...
wait... is that still a good thing? :hmm:
Technically he not a Johnson anymore so we would have hired a wolf in sheeps clothing.
*insert big johnson joke here*
Eh...Derrick Mason had better numbers his 5th year in. His 6th year (which is what johnson is in now) he had 1012. Johnson currently has 1146 and will get around 1300. Mason had 1300 his 7th season.
So to say that we haven't had one COMPARABLE would be pretty stupid, don't you think?
Johnson's great though. It's sad he has to suit up for that team knowing he'll lose almost every week no matter how many yards he gets.
Derrick Mason should have had better numbers in their respective 5th seasons. Mason played in 15 games, AJ - 9.
I still don't think you can say we haven't had anyone comparable.
I never did.... But, stats dont always tell the whole story. I think we all know that.
Stupid? I think you are kinda missing it.
Andre Johnson is just on another level as a WR.... not even looking at numbers here which will be huge before he is all said and done (remember he had David Carr as his QB for his first 4 seasons)
He is a COMPLETE WR. At 6-3 225...sub 4.40... He is bigger, stronger, lightning fast, has the work ethic of Jerry Rice, the smarts, and natural instincts for the game. He can light you up deep, dominate the middle, fight off double teams and attack the ball higher than most, but most importantly he plays ALL OVER THE FIELD. His non stop study of the game has made him so aware of the field that the coaches are able to play him everywhere.
It was talked about in a special on NFL network a few weeks back when AJ had that 4 game stretch of 41 catches for like 600 yards. He is never really in the same spot ever. He is just a physical specimen and is an ELITE WR on the level of Moss, T.O., etc in terms of ability and overall package. I just dont think Derrick Mason is comparable here... he is very good and will have an outstanding career. But I truly think AJ will have one of those "special" careers and will be talked about for a long time like Moss, TO,etc will be.
**Again....Andre Johnson had David Carr of all QBs throwing to him his first 4 seasons in the league not to mention having to endure a start up expansion franchise. He is just getting started.
Here are AJs last 3 seasons post Capers and the end of Carr:
(Projected in parenthesis for knee injury and rest of this season)
2006 - 16 games, 103 rec, 1147 yds, 5 tds.
2007 - 9 games, 60 rec, 851 yds, 8 tds. (16 games, 107 rec, 1512, 14 tds)
2008 - 13 games, 92 rec, 1201 yds, 5 rds. (16 games, 113 rec, 1478, 7 tds)
And yes, I am bored in my hotel down in the Valley for work.
