he's even a fake vegetarian.
What are you even talking about ? Who cares he produces on the field that's all you as an NFL fan should worry about.

There's an article on the interwebs that talks about a steep decline in performance when a back gets over 300 or so carries in a single season. It's been discussed on TT before.

The playoffs count.
EDIT:Pushes that 2012 total up to 405 carries for Foster. He had 378 carries in 2011.
Kubiak Terrell Davis'd him.

Then they need to revise their statement because Foster is now an exception to the rule since is ypc went up from 2012 to 2013 by .4 ypc.

* the playoffs do not count for the 370 figure.

Is he an exception? He only played in 8 games in 2013.
Agreed on the 370 but I feel 378 is close enough to 390 to be worried about it.

91 - 406 carries, 4.3 ypc
92 - 441 carries, 4.6 ypc
93 - 348 carries, 5.3 ypc (holdout)
94 - 395 carries, 4.0 ypc
95 - 450 carries, 4.7 ypc

I wont be worried about it until i see his play actually drop off, cause when he was out there last season he was still just as effective as ever, besides in the TD department but that was a whole team issue.

Quote:
To summarize, eight of these 14 players were injured or lost effectiveness the following season. A ninth, Thomas, was still effective and healthy, but lost stamina. Three players, Davis, Campbell, and Smith (1994) had problems two seasons later, after another year of overuse. Only two of these players, Martin and Smith (1991) seemed to have no ill effects for multiple seasons afterwards.
What part am I misunderstanding?

Foster is a major reason for the Texans successful seasons, when they had them. I can't believe some people are dumping on him now.

Because some people realize that keeping expensive players past their prime (not saying Foster is) is bad business and that trading a player approaching that point, but still productive is good business.

I'm not for dumping Foster this year, but if he's injured again or not as productive as his salary says he should be, I'd be OK with it. With a BB disciple as HC, I expect to see some odd personnel moves at every position but QB, once he knows he has his "Tom Brady". That QB will probably be the last jersey I buy.

Thank you, this is exactly how i feel. Foster in the back field, AJ on the outside and you have 2 of the 3 biggest parts it takes to make an offense succesful. Well and a good oline but you get my point.
