Is Andre Johnson the face of the Texans?

During the 2013 season, when Andre Johnson, furious with Matt Schaub for yelling at him, walked off the field before the Texans' loss to the Oakland Raiders had ended, I sensed quite a bit of sympathy for the longest-tenured Texan.

He was asked if he still wanted to be in Houston and replied, "I'm under contract." It was heartbreaking to fans that things had gotten so bad that this man, perhaps the best player in franchise history, was this fed up with what was happening with his team.

Today I checked the pulse of Twitter to get an idea of what fans think of Johnson now, given all that's happened with that situation.

Arian Foster said Andre Johnson "is Houston." I asked if fans agreed. Is he Houston? Is he still the face of the franchise? A sampling of replies.
