"(Leaving the Texans) hasn't even really set in yet," Johnson told the Houston Chronicle. "I was just talking about that with someone. Everybody thinks that I went to the Colts to try and get back at the Texans and stuff like that. That had nothing to do with it. I just went to the ... place where I felt was the best fit for me and where I can have a chance to win a championship.
Even if revenge wasn't the motive, Johnson's defection still stings in Houston. Instead of lauding their longtime hero, Texans fans must now watch their defense try to contain him twice a year. Johnson might not be circling the calendar -- but we are.
