Honestly, where else do you want me to put a sure-fire Hall of Famer and the best wide receiver of his generation?  Let's look at it this way.  Over 'Dre's first four seasons, he collected 311 receptions, 3,953 yards, and 17 TDs.  His primary QB was the execrable David Carr.  Once he was finally granted an actual NFL-quality QB, 'Dre has truly shown his elite abilities.  To date, Andre Johnson has accumulated 673 receptions (37th all-time), 9,164 yards (42nd), and 50 receiving TDs (100th).  Two more Dre-like seasons will have him shooting far up the all-time WR boards.  With Matt Schaub at the helm, and a newly fixed ankle, 'Dre has a lot of milestones ahead of him.  Here's the somewhat traditional scouting report before the jump.

Numbers aside, if there's one thing I truly love about Andre Johnson, it's that he's involved in every single play.  The man does not take plays off, and he's a fantastic down-field blocker.  Dre brings a blue-collar attitude to an elite size and skill-set, and he's not afraid to stand up for himself when pushed.

Numbers and one-sided scuffles aside, y'all aren't here to read me talking about Andre Johnson, so let's bring on the highlights.

Dre vs. Miami Dolphins.

Dre pwns Cortland Finnegan.  As usual.

Dre with a game-winner against the Chiefs.

Dre pwns the BE-SFs.  As usual.

Dre and Teh Schaub open up against the Seasquawks in style.

Too damn easy against the BE-SFs.

Too damn damn easy for Dre against the Glitter Kitties.

New era, same badassery vs. the Redskins.

Dear Cardinals: You're gonna need more tacklers.
