What's the rule about talking to a pitcher while he's throwing a no-no??? You DON"T talk about it or you don't talk to him about it...

To the question posed in the title, "yes."

We haven't faced any real defenses yet (other than Dallas.) We still have
on tap: Jets, Chiefs, Chargers, Ravens, Jags (twice), Titans (twice), Eagles

That's a hell of a slate, and that's because I'm selling the Giants short. Indy
and Tennessee smashed them by running the ball on them. I think the Texans
plan to do the same. The Texans played a good four games, but it
gets A LOT tougher from here.

P.S.
Yes, I say the Chiefs are a team to be reckoned with, because they have
Romeo Crennell AND Charlie Weis as coordinators with a ton of young
talent. It's no fluke the Chiefs look poised to win the AFC West.

When I mentioned the Jags, Titans, Eagles, I'm speaking about the matchup
problems they pose for the Texans. Can't look at stats to tell the whole
story. Otherwise, I'd simply ask how many games can the Texans win
with the worst defense (statistically) in the NFL? But, I didn't go there.

I really wish I lived in a world where fan desires actually influenced what happens on the field. Because in this alternate world, Earl would be sporting multiple rings...

While it would be nice if #23 hit that mark, it has to be in context to direct correlation of wins that get us into the playoffs and beyond. Otherwise, it's just another personal record that will be left in the dustbin of history when 18 game seasons become the norm.

10-04-2010, 04:49 PM
I think we plan to share the load more so than would give Foster a chance at 2,000. His carries have been steadily declining over the first 4 games. Ward has emerged as a viable option and Slaton is north of 5 ypc.

On the other hand he has looked unstoppable at times. If we let him carry 20 times a game I could see it because he only needs to average 100 yards per game from here on out to achieve it.

Sorry still think noone can touch the prime days of Barry Sanders, and Erik Dickerson.. and if Bo Jackson had ever played football seriously...

18 game seasons will only make it harder IMHO, teams will be carrying 2 running backs and split time, 18 games is a lot of beatings.. I really hope they don't do an 18 game season.

deion chose matthews which is a decent choice
irvin chose LT (wtf! to be fair deion just said 'thats it.. im leaving! after he chose LT). one of the rare occassions i actually found deion funny

even against Dallas who is ranked 3rd in rush defense, Foster had 106 yards rushing. KC will be the true test...

If Foster would have been on time to those two meetings last wekk, he'd probably have around 600 yards already!

It is very early, but it's not absurd to say 2,000 is possible.

He had 106 yards rushing and he was under utilized. I mean, the guy was getting 6.2 ypc. We should have leaned on him more during that game.

We need to use this guy more on PA screen. This team needs to wake up and watch the film, he's a menace in space. Vonta kicking out LB's and this guy can run through the hole like a train.

Interestingly, the only team that has held Foster in semi-check was the Redskins. And even then he got 69 more yards on only 3 catches. No one has held Foster under 100 yds from scrimmage this year. .
Colts ---- 231 yds / 33 carries / 7.0 ypc / 3 TD / 7 yds on 1 catch
Redskins -- 69 yds / 19 carries / 3.6 ypc / 0 TD / 69 yds on 3 catches
Cowboys -- 106 yds / 17 carries / 6.2 ypc / 0 TD / 20 yds on 4 catches
Raiders -- 131 yds / 16 carries / 8.2 ypc / 1 TD / 53 yds on 3 catches and 1 TD


Foster's averaging seven-plus yds per touch people.

Then again, Slaton and Ward are averaging 5.5 and 6.0 ypc, respectively, on their limited touches. So is it Foster being a stud or the scheme (and run blocking) that's working so well?

His yards per carry would have been higher against the Redskins, but his last two carries were for no gain and were only to get the ball to the right hashmark. And considering Foster is getting the same amount of carries as Slaton and Ward combined, I'd say Foster is a stud.

I don't think he'll get 2000 yards simply because we can't run him that many times. Slaton isn't doing poorly with his ypc, and Ward looks like he has the potential to be good. With a 3 headed monster you can get a team total of 2000, but it'll be hard for Foster.

There have been three RBs to break 2000 yards since Sanders did it in 1997.

Getting Foster as an UDFA is the biggest heist since the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre.

I thought he was a great signing and had potential to be an excellent back-up but I never thought the guy was this good.

Take a look at the long 74 yd TD run, and the long pass and catch to see just some of his amazing skills. This guy is legit. Yes the line is doing it's job, and the FB is a freaking animal, but this guy is absouletely made for the system we are running, and he takes no false steps and has amazing vision to find the cutback lanes. But I never thought he could juke guys the way he does, and his speed is underrated...not too mention his breakaway ability and overall toughness.

You've got a good point, the Texans ain't proved nothing yet.

Neither has the Chiefs.

it would be sweet, to go into the bye 5-1. But no doubt it's going to be a rough one coming out.

Indy @ Indy on Monday night.
Short Week to San Diego (at home)
Then on the road again to Jacksonville.
Stay on the Road to NYJets
Tacks at home....
Short Week to Philly (Thursday Night)
Finally get some time off...... then it's Baltimore, MNF @ Reliant.

2 things.
1) these guys were crying about being in Nawlin's for a week in the Preseason..
2) Indy, San Diego, Jacksonville, Jets, Tennessee.... all in the month of November. We haven't play very well in the month of November.

His cuts are unreal. To be able to plant his foot & change direction, or shift his forward motion.... it's unreal for a guy his size.

Then that stutter step he put on after he caught that screen... I think we've got ourselves another beast on offense.

Back when I was arguing against that picking that 3rd Down RB with the first overall, people were saying the system is RB friendly. But if you get someone with real talent back there, someone special, the system is deadly.
