    Andre Johnson plays offense. How many players got voted for that play offense?

    Ward was voted for because he crack-back blocks defenders and they hate getting lit up by a WR.

    Andre Johnson is known for being soft. Finnegan usually bullies him, up until he finally snapped this time. He'll get bullied again next go-round. So of course no one is voting for him... he's not physical enough to be considered.


    That's always been my only knock on Andre- if he were more competitive and more aggressive, he'd be unstoppable.

    Fair enough! I don't know if I would call AJ soft, but he definitely isn't a vocal leader, and doesn't seem like he has that "killer instinct". He is certainly athletically talented, and with a better QB would probably have a LOT more TD's IMO.

    Finnegan though, I don't think he is a #1 corner. I don't think he is athletically talented enough to cover top WR's... BUT... he tried to make up for it by doing 'other' things that get under their skin. If he was more talented athletically, I don't think he would be known to be dirty like the other top corners who are able to shut down #1 WR's without those types of tactics.

    I like your take though, and agree that Andre could certainly be mentally tougher, but I don't think I would call him soft.

    It's not so much soft as it is him just shying away from the physicality typically, I think.

    Finnegan isn't a #1 corner on the RIGHT side... on the left, He's top 10 in the NFL, easy.

    He just cant cover on that side. Never has played there and the experiment looks to be failing miserably right now.
