There was about a five or six year period, from about 2004 to 2010/2011, where Andre Johnson was the best wide receiver in the NFL. It was either him or Larry Fitzgerald. And while Fitzgerald had the opportunity to play with a Hall Of Famer like Kurt Warner, Johnson was usually stuck with a player like David Carr or Matt Schaub. However, despite this, Johnson was consistently one of the most dominant players in the league.
Johnson was also always a standup guy. While most dominant receivers are known for their diva attitudes and off-the-field headlines, Johnson was the complete opposite: quiet and professional.
Except for the one time. We all remember this brawl. This was one of the most legit fights the NFL had ever seen, and everyone loved it. Finnegan was known as a dirty, pain in the ass player, while Johnson was one of the most well-respected players in the league. Needless to say, everyone loved seeing AJ lay the whoopin’ on Finnegan.
