Default Arian Foster

19 carries 97 yards and a TD vs a decent run D. Fools gold or does he have a chance to make an impact next season? If he performs similarly next week will these two games be enough to convince anyone that RB shouldn't be quite the priority we all figured it would be going into the off-season?

Default Re: Arian Foster

I like him. Im not sure if he's a full time starter but him and a healthy and slimmer Slaton could be quite a punch.

Ron Dayne had a couple of good games for us too. I like him, but I don't think we should stop focusing on a high round running back in the draft

Agree'd .... I think the worst thing that can happen is him having another game like this against the Pats ..... then this team thinks they can get by without drafting one on the first day.

We need a legit starting running back. I like foster as a change of pace and Slaton is more like a Bryan Westbrook type running back.

We need a guy who can get one yard and hang on to the ball and there is not one guy on this squad that is that guy.

Agreed. Can we PLEASE draft an impact/franchise running back for once?

I think the biggest trouble for the Texans in the running game , especially short yardage is their OL - they just cant get a push up front.

I don't think it would be the worst thing if it helped us get a W but I understand what you mean. I think he could be a solid 2nd or 3rd back and could easily replace Chris Brown as our "big back" but beyond that I'm not sure.

Well this is the way I see it:
Slaton - safe
Moats - Will make it to camp
Foster - Will make it to camp
Brown - DONE! - replaced by a bruiser type rookie in the 2nd round.

It kind of reminds me of the Chris Taylor bandwagon. He put up one good game against the Browns 3 or 4 years back and then the next season everyone wanted him to play, then goes on IR and doesnt take another snap.

Foster looked good today, but the jury is out on him till he can be consistent...which is pretty much the state of the franchise.

We already have our franchise running back. What we need is better interior line play.

Huh? No, he doesn't. Miami played like crap. He is more of the same. It's like when Moats had the great game and people said 'he's the one.'

NONE of them are the ONE, maybe part of the whole, but no the ONE.
