Your Daily Reminder Of How Good Andre Johnson Is

SportsIllustrated.com's Joe Posnanski, a writer I've long admired, came up with a list of 32 "great' receivers in the history of football. Guess who made that list? No,  you were wrong, it wasn't Corey Bradford.

29. Andre Johnson

Like with Fitzgerald, it's probably too soon to put him on this list... but over the last two seasons Johnson has AVERAGED 108 catches and 1,572 yards receiving. Playing for Houston does tend to get a player overlooked... I have no doubt in my mind that Johnson and Fitzgerald can both be Top 10 receivers and maybe higher before their careers are done.

Every time I see one of these historical-themed football pieces on how good Andre Johnson is, it makes me feel like we've been spoiled as fans. There are some certain modern contemporaries of Johnson on the list who have played great only when they've felt like it *cough*RandyMoss*cough*, and no matter how bad the team around him has been, Johnson has shut up and used every bit of talent and effort in his frame to make the Texans better.

I'd hope something like this, read by a Texans Front Office employee, would make them automatically redouble their focus on winning as soon as possible. For AJ's sake. Before he goes down as the best receiver to have never won anything.
