An athlete with a 'real' personality. Not a Chad Uno Pedejo or T.O., and him openly disliking fantasy football makes me like even more.

What people saw as a "somewhat" strange attitude in college, I saw as maturity and having a mind of his own. He always has had his head screwed on right while some people think he's kinda out-of-this-world. Such is life, I guess.

I wasn't surprised at all with the fruit basket; I'm sure you enjoyed it tremendously, and I'm happy for you.

I also like this video:

Your name is clearly spelled out there, so Gma didn't really have to hesitate using it :)

Is it just me or does Arian remind you of Marshall Faulk the way he runs, footwork, cuts. If Foster stays healthy he's gonna regin supreme for several seasons.

I think they are somewhat similar but Faulk has more fluidity in the hips while Foster changes gears and gets back up to speed very well.

I hope Foster makes that list one of these days.

Foster plants his foot harder on his cuts so they are more angular. Obviously Faulks style worked as well. Also when Foster hits top gear he becomes a long strider which is not Faulk.

I'm sure many will disagree, but I think his style is kinda similar to Marcus Allen. Earlier in his career Allen might have looked for contact a bit more than Arian though. Allen had a very good cut and go too.

I don't disagree at all. I've often thought their running styles were very similar and am reminded ever so often when the NFLN runs clips of Marcus during his prime. In my eyes, they're very, very similar.

Cris Collinsworth agrees with you.

If Arian were a pitcher he'd have a nasty change up . If he were a PG he'd have a great cross over dribble . As a RB he's deceptive with a great change of direction .

In the comments section:

OK. Cris you started this site to trade chatting with the pros for inside information from the locals, since many hyper-studied the local team.I am not a hyper-home-team student, but I FINALLY can pay something back.When you talk to Connor ask him if he got his athlecism from the Irish Dance classes that his mom made all 4 Barwin boys take as kids. They were ALL real good at it. Make him dance for you.Finally, payback.

Collinsworth's response is basically, "Now that's what I'm talkin' about. Look for it on SNF."

Arian Foster says big contract won't change him

The Houston Texans gave running back Arian Foster a five-year, $43.5 million deal with nearly $21 million guaranteed.

Foster says the big contract won't change him.

“Money reveals you,” Foster told Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com. “I think it’ll bring out the philanthropist in me, the person I want to be who gives back. I’ll make sure my family’s future is secured. I’m not one to buy a car or chains and jewelry, not anything against those guys who do, to each his own.

“But that’s just not my style. I’m more about building a future and foundation for myself and bettering my community.”

“Money doesn’t motivate him; he’s a guy that loves football,” linebacker Brian Cushing said. “He’s gotten over that hump with ‘Was he a one-year wonder’ doing what he did last year battling through injury. I mean, he gets a full year, he’s going to be dangerous. I see him every day; he’s getting better. It’s always me and him competing against each other in pass protection and running the ball, and he’s tremendous. In my opinion, the best back in the league.”

If the Texans want to be regarded as a high character organization, then they have the perfect man at the runningback position.
