Default Hey, Foreman - here comes the bus....

... could you get under it please?

Quote:
Jay Foreman has moved on, but he hasn't quite forgotten what unfolded this offseason at Reliant Park.

In the span of three months, Foreman went from three-year starter at inside linebacker for the Texans to unemployed. All the while he trying to recover from a sprained left ankle that caused him to miss the final month of the season.

Foreman has found a new home with the Oakland Raiders.

The ankle has since healed, but the same can't be said for his feelings after what he described Thursday as the "thrown under the bus" treatment that eventually led to his release as part of the Texans' defensive makeover in mid-March.

"I know this is a business and stuff like that happens, but there's a certain way to conduct business," Foreman said after a morning workout between the Raiders and Texans.....

...."I knew it was coming," said Foreman, who led the Texans in tackles during their inaugural season in 2002. "I knew what they were doing before they even did it. When I realized what was going on, I wanted to finish out the season good so I could go somewhere else and continue playing and get paid. Except I got hurt. The thing that bothered me was I got hurt for the first time and you get thrown under the bus."......

...."You can't count on both hands that many linebackers that are better than me," said Foreman, who signed with Oakland a month after being released and is listed second on the depth chart behind Danny Clark at inside linebacker. "I really don't care. It's their opinion what they wanted to do. It was already done before it even happened."
the rest of the chronic story...

Seems like he cares.... just a little bit.

Maybe it'd help if he used his feet along with both hands? Maybe Sapp and Moss could help with some digits as well?

Remember he was so bitter about the Bills trading him that he handed them a win in our first season?

Since Foreman is running 2nd unit, I guess the Raiders have the best set of LBs in the league.

Jay Foreman is not as dumb as he sounds in this piece. Another example of a person's IQ dropping 30 points with a microphone in their face.

He says he knew it was coming before he was injured, then he got injured, Texans release him, then he acts like he is devastated...what a joke...

Thanks for reminding me of that one. Maybe he can give us a couple of 15 yard penalties Saturday night.
