On the field that would be a Hall of Fame type comparison.

CnD and I were talking about Foster while watching the game last weekend. Cloak noticed the high stepping, gate and frame of Foster (akin to Dickerson) while I noted his short area quickness and fluidity (akin to Emmitt). Duane Thomas on the field is a good comparison and if constrained to on the field the kind of RB teams build around. I think Arian runs with a lower pad level than Dickerson but I see the leg comparison. Dickerson tried to out run or overpower more people. Emmitt tried to slide more people. Arian seems like a good combination and Duane Thomas was a similar runner.

On the field, yeah. But it's the OFF the field that is a demon we don't want to tempt.

When he's running at full speed, Foster doesn't really look all that fast - at least on television. But what he does have is elite quickness and incredible patience. Those are the two traits that make him one of the best backs in the league. On most runs, he loves to take his time, follow his blocks and look for lanes, it's only really the last second or two of the run where he uses his burst.
