Texan Army, ladies and gentlemen around the great city of Houston, Texas, we have a dilemma on our hands. One of the most iconic Houston superstars in sports is finally fed up. And I don’t blame him one bit. Andre Johnson, one of the best wide receivers in the NFL has racked over 12,000 career yards. Think about it, all of his teams have been a quarterback away to being downright sorry. In 2012, he nearly averaged 1,600 yards but only had 4 touchdowns. He said this is his third head coach with Bill O’Brien coming in, and he doesn’t know if this is “the place for him.”

I know it’s tough to be part of a rebuild (AKA “We’re gonna suck this year, so get ready…”) and TOM SAVAGE getting drafted in the 4th round of the draft when you have AJ McCarron or Aaron Murray available… PLEASE. TOM SAVAGE. He must be sick looking at that depth chart. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates, and TOM SAVAGE.

When this news broke, I along with most of you were feeling these emotions: Sadness, anger, betrayal, disappointment. But all those years that Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson were pretty much playing pitch and catch with each other, Andre needed a number two receiver.

After begging for help they finally got one in DeAndre Hopkins, DeVier Posey, Keshawn Martin, and so on. But after all that losing that has been going on since last September, Johnson and the rest of the Texan Army are frustrated, and some are frustrated with Johnson.

Half of the fan base is bitter, saying “Forget him. We don’t need you anyway! He’s pulling a Lebron on us!” Now, now… that last part may be true. But, hell yeah, we need him. That’s a hall of fame wide receiver! We need all hands on deck. Losing Andre from the Texans is like losing Hakeem from the Rockets. Or Brian Ching from the Dynamo. Or Biggio and Bagwell from the Astros.

With this I ask, Andre Johnson:

Dear Andre,

Thank you for all the memories you brought us all in resurrecting football in H-Town. I might have been a “late bloomer” so to speak. I caught y’all on your rise to mediocrity, then suckdom, then our rise to our two division championships, then our current suckdom. If you do get traded, I hope it’s to a team that contends for a championship. Anybody but the damn Patriots. Denver will do. Thanks for the memories, Andre, even if they weren’t so great.

On the other hand, if you stay… You better not do any Tracy McGrady bull… We need you, all in this season. I understand, we have no quarterback, but hey, our defense is making big moves. Nobody said this was going to be a one year miracle, but who knows? They might surprise us. Staying optimistic here.

Regardless of what you may or may not do, Andre… Texan Army says thank you.
