"I'm under contract" - Andre Johnson's repsonse to if he's happy playing in Houston.

Recommended Posts

Don't even think about saying it!

No, he's not coming here, and he wouldn't be a long term replacement to Wayne since he's almost as old as him

I thought he would say "we got outplayed .. etc."

Then you missed the end of the game where he was yelling at Schaub then left the field with time on the clock. Andre shows all the signs of wanting out.

Well, if I were him I'd be pretty * too.  I mean, he spent his entire career with one team, and every year, they were getting closer to winning a superbowl, and then this year...he's got what, another year or two left in the NFL?  He probably thinks his opportunity to ever win a SB just extinguished...and I would agree with that.

Can't blame the man. Texans were frauds anyway. They were just keeping our throne warm until we got ourselves together

Another decade of dominance is coming soon

All hail Indianapolis!!

Throw in the fact they rarely got him any help other than Owen Daniels for years I get why the guy is frustrated. They can have a good running game and defense, but until they get a real QB they are not going to be contenders. Heck, I am surprised Fitz has stayed so quiet in Arizona ever since Kurt Warner retired.

You know it's going to happen if the Texans entertain the idea of trading or releasing him. If Lawrence Taylor went on TV saying he was going to make a comeback at 54 yrs. old, there would people here on this forum saying we should try him out. It's just how this forum works. Doesn't matter how much of a scrub, loser, *, or God awful player it is, somebody will say we should sign him and then there will actually be other's that agree.

I'd love to see him leave the division... I don't want him in Indy at his age unless we got a deep discount and Hou. pays most of his salary... Even then, he'd only be a stop gap while we settle the position in Reggie's Twilight...

I feel sorry for Andre because he makes Houston's QB's look good. Time and time again QB's lob him the ball into traffic and he comes down with it. Yet we have seen plenty of evidence to suggest Houston has mediocre QB's at best, or they always find a way to beat themselves up to lose ball games. If Houston had Andrew Luck, oh lord imagine it.

 

I said this in an earlier topic, but imo Kubiak's to blame. My heartfelt sincerity for his medical condition, but football is a business and it's time to experiment with some fresh faces across the board, just like Indy did.

I dont think we would target him but why shouldnt we? Hes got another 2-3 years left, hes elite at one of our weakest positions, and we are in, or very close, to a superbowl window right now. We dont need andre johnson to win a superbowl but dont diminish the effect a player of his caliber would have on this team. how did losing losing Reggie Wayne ( comparable player) affect this offense?

    • But it's his only year. It would be one thing if he had a couple decent seasons and then last season. But it was his first season...and it was historically great. That's the only data we have so far. At this point, no proof exists that he isn't already a great QB. That's what has to be proven...not the other way around.   Luck had a great rookie season...but if he had done what Mahomes did in his first season...I think nearly every Colts fan would have put him in the top 5. Or any other top QB for that matter. I don't think there should be a double-standard for Mahomes. 
    • Has he been charged though? I realize the investigation is ongoing...but I don't think he's been charged with anything yet. And if that doesn't happen...the NFL won't really have any additional information because they (law enforcement) have already said they won't share that information with the NFL. So basically, they would be going off that audio and interviews they conduct with Hill after the investigation.   Trust me...I am not saying it's right...it's just how I think it might play out. Without charges...the audio will garner a multi-game suspension on its own...but then he will be back. 
    • Ballard has also expressed the importance of getting a pass rush up the middle.  His release couldn't have come at a better time and his contract shouldn't be prohibitive for Ballard.  If he really is serious about playing for a contender he and his agent should recognize the obvious match with the Colts as his best chance at a ring.  A no brainer from my point of view.  Of course I tend to have a bias on this sort of thing.  
    • Makes sense to look... he fits for the most part.     Our pro personnel department already has (most) every player (those to soon be FA, or a cap casualty, etc...) scouted, and placed a 'value' on them.  We'll talk to the agent and see if we are in the ballpark before any real talks begin.     We won't be in a bidding war, is what that means. Ballard has proven to fold up the tent once the $ get above range.  Doesn't matter who the player is.  But there first have to be steps taken, and that is if what we might pay is close to what they may accept.
    • Lucky,    It is not worth the effort, it's just not.
