Description

Another South Florida legend joins the show to discuss his football journey. Andre Johnson was a part of one of the best (if not THE BEST) college football teams of all time and shares stories from the 2001 Miami Hurricanes. He then focuses on his time in the pros and long-winding path with the Houston Texans. Andre details what it was like to lose so much in the NFL after coming from such a winning college program. He remembers the 2006 NFL Draft where the Texans could have selected Reggie Bush or Vince Young but ended up going defense with Mario Williams at #1 overall. What was the feeling of finally making the playoffs in his 9th season? Johnson thinks Houston could have won it all that year if Matt Schaub had remained healthy. A notorious moment from our guest's career involved him fighting Cortland Finnegan of the Tennessee Titans. Dre lets us know what pushed him to that point. He also goes down memory lane to talk about the best game of his career and what the current Texans have to do in order to rebuild. Is there a way they can keep Deshaun Watson? Finally, we hear Johnson's Mount Rushmore of Texans, a list he is absolutely a part of.
