The Daily Shoutout: Andre Johnson's hammy

Posted on: October 3, 2011 7:06 am
OPENING HIT: In Houston, there is both excitement and dread. Excitement because the Texans are 3-1 and finally showing some toughness. Dread, because Andre Johnson injured his hamstring. The fear is that Johnson may miss a few weeks, at least. "If we have to go without him for a period, we're going to have to ask some guys to really step up to the plate," coach Gary Kubiak said.

Some in the organization were privately saying they felt Johnson's chances of playing this week were extremely slim. The interesting thing about the Texans is that after Johnson went out the team did exactly what Kubiak wanted. Everyone played better particularly the defense. If that Texans defense continues to play the way it did against Pittsburgh the Johnson injury won't be as crushing.

Ben Roethlisberger: He left the locker room in walking boot and there's fear, as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported, that he might have a broken foot. When myself and a group of reporters spoke to Roethlisberger after their loss to Houston, he was, well, typical Roethlisberger. He said, if needed, he'd wear a cast on the foot and play. Crazy thing is: he did it last year with this other foot when he a broken bone in it. His off-the-field stupidity aside, he's one tough dude.

REVENGE OF THE TURDS: The Lions are 4-0. Let that sink into your gonads for a moment.


Also, the 49ers, Bills, and Redskins are 3-1. This remains the biggest reason why the NFL is the most popular sport. A team can go from scrubs to hopeful overnight. Now, this doesn't mean these teams will stay successful. Rex Grossman is sure to doom the Redskins eventually. It will happen because he's Rex Grossman. He will always let you down but for now the ex-uglies rule the league.

Tim Tebow: I'm told Broncos coaches, in light of the team's horrid start, are privately softening their stance about starting Tebow at quarterback.

AND LASTLY...NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth may not be invited to the sexy home of sexy quarterback Mark Sanchez anytime soon. On one play during the Jets' atrocious offensive performance, Sanchez, who had been hit hard all night, looked to be ducking a hit. Collinsworth basically said Sanchez was quitting the play and avoiding a hit. He was calling Sanchez gutless. Not cool.

The Daily Shoutout: Andre Johnson's hammy

I'm absolutely amazed at a few articles here on CBS today that flatter Grossman.  He WAS my fantasy starter after I lost Peyton Manning.  This week, I was wondering who I'd drop to make bench space for Ed Reed (it's an IDP league). It's Grossman!  I'll either get by mostly with Matt Hasselbeck or trade some of my excellent WRs for someone better.

It would be nice if Freeman had some facts to back up his statement about Rex Grossman

Have you been watching Grossman play? He threw 2 INT's in the 2nd half yesterday that kept the Rams in the game. What more evidence do you need? They are winning DESPITE Grossman's play! Just look at the tape. The Redskins will continue to win if they get the running game going and minimize Grossman's chances to screw things up. That defense is playing pretty well and the ST has made some plays. Kicking game, which has been a bug-a-boo in DC is much better this year.

Have to agree that the content of the story, if you could call it that, was spotty at best. The Tim Tebow sentence is ill contructed and punctuated...he does use a comma here and there, but most are obviously absent.

It would be nice if Freeman had some facts to back up his statement about Rex Grossman and the Redskins good start. Other than saying the Texans, 49ers, Bills and Redskins are 3-1, there aren't many facts here.
