You don't score, you don't win.
How the heck can TDs be over-rated?
Cause TDs usually rely on playcalling? How on earth is Andre suppose to rack up more TDs when we basically run every time we're in the red zone? Arian had 17 TDs and yet anybody who actually watched football knows he wasn't even close to being a top 5 RB. Did you guys even watch him? I think he broke 5 tackles...TOTAL for the season. Andre had 1600 receiving yards as the ONLY threat in the passing game and made clutch catches time and time again throughout the season. Arian Foster relies on his offensive line a lot more than other running backs do and that's pretty clear. Is he a scrub? No. Is he a top 5 RB? Nope.
And yes I know scoring points is the main objective but to bring it up as an argument against Andre for Foster is weak considering the way Kubiak calls the plays....Arian's YPC was 4.1 by the way...that's ridiculously weak for an "elite" running back.
