Default Foster v. Blue

Sorry, if you can't see the difference.

And Fitzpatrick has the worst play fake ever.

I figured that he would have a good season this year due to the new regime and needing to show himself again while still on this contract. I got a little worried when he missed the whole pre season though. He shut up any worries from me though. Foster is a superb talent. I think the coaches need to learn how to figure out a proper workload for him though and not ride him to the ground. His longevity is going to be determined on how this team balances that going forward.

22.86 sounds so much more impressive.

I'm giving benefit of the doubt.

Nope. We should trade his ass as soon as we can while he still looks good.

Because salary cap management is so much sexier than winning.

IMO, Blue needs to develop some patience and he doesn't seem to have real good vision. That's what makes Foster so special. He has excellent field vision and can see holes developing.

Patience can be learned, but I'm not too sure about the vision.

It really is no contest, the patience and vision of Foster is pretty damn good...I still would like us to add a speed back but not at Foster's expense

Foster vs Blue? Blue doesn't get in the end zone on that 4th and goal. Not taking anything away from Blue, being a rookie and all, but Foster is special.

They seemed to use Blue mostly when they were killing the clock, and put Foster in only to pick up a 1st down when about to lose the ball. Maybe because Blue seems to be sure handed and reliable with the ball, even more than Foster. Taking no chances!

Fail.

Bob is not Gary and is learning to not run Foster into the ground with meaningless carries. Kudos to him. We need Foster healthy in order to make a run. That guy elevates to another level in the playoffs.

I hope that is the case. He surely wasn't doing this early in the season when Foster was getting alot of carries when the game was already put away.
