Johnsons Recieving Yards Last Year- 1142
22nd overall WR last year. That makes him a #2 or #3 WR on most teams. Not even close to studly, which means his offense and his performance needs to improve dramaticly for his ADP to be justified as many teams had him as their 3rd round pick and top WR.
"Carr doesnt have any other reliable WR to throw to. He's going to be blitzed a ton, Johnson will be double coverage, and with no other good WR Carr and Johnson will be absoultely horribe in 05-06!"
Well Carr threw for 2300+ yards to different recievers outside of Johnson, so shut it. And AJ and Carr got the coverage/pressure last year too.
Andre Johnson had 79 rec, 1142 yards
Dominick Davis had 68 rec, 588 yards
Corey Bradford had 27 rec, 399 yards
Jabar Gaffney had 41 rec, 632 yards
Billy Miller had 17 rec, 178 yards
Lets puts some of these numbers in perspective:
Gaffney ranks with: David Terrell, Todd Pinkston, Az-zahir Hakim.
Bradford ranks with: Derrius Thompson, Bobby Wade, Clarence Moore
Miller ranks with: Teyo Johnson, Shad Meier, Tim Euhus
To put it simply, the #2, #3 WRs, and the starting TE didn't even come close to putting up respectable numbers. AJ and Carr don't have help. DD is the second most reliable WR, and that is a huge problem for that offense. Any team that doesn't put the focus on AJ on every passing scheme is simply retarded, because Bradford and Gaffney won't beat you.
The O-Line is still young and continues to improve.
I don't know where to begin with what is wrong with that statement.
In 02: 76 sacks
In 03: 36 sacks
In 04: 49 sacks
They looked like they were improving, but they took a major step back. Sure, 49 sacks, is not as bad as 76, but its far from acceptable. Carr got sacked more than any other QB last year. Out of 3 years in the NFL, he's been the most sacked QB in two of them. That isn't improvement, that is a major disaster for the team. Its a problem that will devastate an offense and needs serious attention, but have the Texans even attempted to address the issue:
05: 5th round C
04: No offensive linemen drafted
03: 3rd round T, 7th round C
So in 3 years they've spent a 3rd, 5th, and 7th round pick on addressing the issue. That's not much at all, in fact it shows just how little concern for David Carr's longevity this coaching staff has.
As for that O-line being young, the starters are was follows:
Riley - 30
Pitts - 26
McKinney - 29
Weigert - 33
Wade - 28
With an average age of 29 years how in the world do you justify calling that offensive line "young?"
That fact is, since their creation, the Texans have had the worst pass protection in the entire NFL over these past three years, and that hasn't changed. With 5 sacks in the opener, they're already on track for 80 sacks, so another 49 sack year is not out of the question, and that spells trouble for Carr and that entire offense.
