Personally, I just want Arian Foster to forget the shenanigans and think only of the little things that matter...his vision for seams, cutback lanes, balance, agility, speed, ball protection, pass protection for the QB when needed, his hands when he's catching the ball, etc. Him mentioning what TD dance he might do on Saturday? Showing his immaturity (again), IMO.
I know we've had our differences of opinion about Arian this season, but on this one I agree with you 100%. TD celebrations should be the last thing on his mind.
Some of the greatest RB's in NFL history did not celebrate. Earl, Sweetness, Emmitt Smith, Barry Sanders, the list goes on of HoF running backs that acted like they've been there before....
Sorry, Arian, I've got your back most of the time, but on this one, just score and score often. Celebrate the win, not the score.
