Andre Johnson's Career Yardage - A Pie Chart Perspective

32
Ljt3yal

This week in unnecessary pie charts, we take a look at Andre Johnson's career receiving numbers compared to those of the next nine WRs that have played for the Houston Texans.

Like a Thanksgiving plate dominated by an oversized turkey leg, the chart above is hilariously unbalanced. We're all painfully familiar with the precipitous drop in quality after Andre, but it's staggering to see him account for as many yards by himself as almost everyone else on the list.

Hopefully we'll see DeAndre Hopkins distinguish himself from the pack of near-anonymous receivers accompanying him here. Click here for the full picture.

Texans are now following Johnny Manziel on Twitter

I am not sure if it means anything but the Houston Texans are now following Johnny Manziel on Twitter. I don't think they are following any other players in this years draft, including Bridgewater or Clowney. Maybe I am reading too much into it but this has to be a good thing for people who want the Texans to take Manziel. Here is a link to the article: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000325366/article/houston-texans-follow-johnny-manziel-on-twitter

Found this via the Houston Texans Instagram page,

Jonathan Garcia is a speed skater representing the US of A in the Sochi Olympics. He's also a Houston product and an apparent Texans fan.

He's competing in the 1000m today. Good luck, buddy. Read more about Johnathan here.

Cole: 2011 First Rounders In For A Rude Awakening

The National Football Post ran an interesting article from Jason Cole the other day about why J.J. Watt and the other members of such a great draft class are going to get screwed when it comes to contract extensions. It's really worth a read. A storm is brewing.

Excerpt:
"In the case of Watt, who is due to make just over $1.9 million this season, if his fifth-year option is $6 million and the franchise tag is $12 million for him in 2016, the Texans essentially have him under contract for three more years at only $20 million. On the open market, Watt might be worth double that."

Watt Looks Mad After Pro Bowl Loss

Found this picture via Marc Vandermeer's Twitter.

With only pride at stake, Watt predictably gave his all, and you just know this loss stings as much as any other. For those keeping up at home, that's 15 losses in a row for Watt (and Duane Brown, too.)

Watt finished the game with a sack and a SWATT plus numerous QB hits and pressures.

Did A.J. Bouye Pick Up $11k Dinner Tab For Fellow DBs?

From A.J. Bouye's Twitter feed. This is how you celebrate the holidays! Notice the $4,600 worth of Louis XIII, which amounts to 28 one-ounce shots according to Johnathan Joseph's Instagram account. Outrageous.

I saw this originally on SoTT and thought it was worth sharing.

The "smh" caption from the link is as telling as it is brief. I'm surprised that fellow rookie D.J. Swearinger wasn't forced to split it with him.

I want to believe you're the answer, Case.
I want to believe that with the Titans and Colts losing, we still have a chance to turn this season around.
I want to believe you're the next Kurt Warner.
I want to believe!

Raise your hand if you're old enough to remember this gem. I'd pick the Beer Bottle over the Beer Can right now.
