Houston Texans Quarterback Matt Schaub Says Andre Johnson has Not Lost a Step
Some people around the National Football League and the media feel that Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has lost step and has had reduced production at age 31, but Texans quarterback Matt Schaub says that is not true.
Johnson has had less snaps this season than previous seasons and has been targeted less than Houston tight end Owen Daniels through the first five weeks of the season.
Schaub feels that Johnson's reduced stats are due to defensive attention. He told profootballtalk.com that "We're trying to get him the ball every game. He's obviously one of the best wide in this league and teams obviously know that. They gear and game plan things to take him away. We understand that."
Schaub went on to talk about the ability for the other Texans offensive target to make plays and that they are trying to share the wealth. Johnson is on track to have 55 catches for 906 yards and seven touchdowns this season.
Houston is in action tomorrow night as they host Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers. Kickoff is at 7:20 P.M. on NBC.
