Andre Johnson Looking like Earl Campbell

Just a quick hit here. I’m sure most of you have seen the highlight of Andre Johnson this weekend running through 3 Cardinals defenders to score a touchdown. You can see the video on NFL.com here.  I was really impressed by his physicality there. In fact, the run reminded me a lot of that classic Earl Campbell run where Earl ran through several players on his way to endzone, ramming his helmet into one guy’s chest and then having his jersey almost ripped off before scoring. Anyway, I can’t think of many wide receivers that I’ve seen over the years that have been that physical on a play. Maybe Hines Ward.
