Wide receiver Andre Johnson is heading home to Miami for his fourth trip to the Pro Bowl. He spoke to the media Tuesday night after hearing that he was named a starter on the AFC squad.

**WR Andre Johnson


(on if he's getting used to going to the Pro Bowl) "The Pro Bowl is just a reward for what you do during the season and if you go out and do what you're supposed to do and just take care of your business, when you're selected to the Pro Bowl you're one of the best at your position."
{QUOTE}(on how much Matt Schaub staying healthy contributed to his success) "It helps out a whole lot. Me and Matt, when we're out there playing, we're pretty much on the same page. We both see the same things when we're out there playing. I think that's why we've been able to accomplish what we've been able to accomplish. Hopefully it's something that's going to get better and better. I really think Matt deserves to be in the Pro Bowl this year. If not, hopefully we can both come out and both stay healthy and both make it next year."

(on if he would be okay missing the Pro Bowl if it meant playing in the Super Bowl) "Of course. I would trade my Pro Bowls to play in a Super Bowl any time. That's why I play the game. That's my number one goal: just trying to get the organization to its first Super Bowl. That's something I'm going to keep trying to do until I can't play football anymore."

(on if it's nice making the Pro Bowl and having a shot to play in the playoffs) "It does. Before, when the Pro Bowls were mentioned you never had anything to look forward to as far as playoffs or anything like that. For us to be playing for something this late in the year, it's a great feeling. It feels totally different. It feels a lot better than in past years."
