That said, Arian Foster is a cut above, he's special. I have been saying it for some time. His vision and balance are so out of this world it's unbelievable. Great pass blocker, great hands, and enough top end speed to take it to the house.

That play where he jump cut to the right and may Polamalu miss in the backfield and then scampered for 20 yards was a thing of beauty. He made one of the universally recognized top defensive players look silly more than once yesterday. He's special.
That swing pass he had on the first drive was a thing of beauty, similar to the one he had in preseason vs the 49ers.

When he caught it, a Steeler LB was closing in and was there to make a play, but Arian evaded him and just dusted him, left him grasping for molecules. What's impressive is the way he evades people while at the same time getting upfield quickly; no dancing, no juking in place, just turns on the afterburners and he's gone.

I especially liked seeing Troy Polamalu getting burned by the juke moves. Dude was out of position more times than I've ever seen in a game. You could tell it was getting to him, too, especially toward the end of the game when they knew the Texans were probably going to win. There are not many playes that can do that to Troy P.
I didn't realize exactly how bad Arian juked Polamalu on this play, until I saw this highlight.

The luxury of watching the game at home is DVR. We must have watched that play from various angles at least 20 times. It was awesome!

Shhhhhhhh, be very quiet. Just now, you're seeing an elusive Foster in the wild! Now watch as he evades a striking Polamalu with his cat-like agility and confuses the other predators by hiding in the trench. After that quick move, you can see him dash to the open plain to make a fast getaway before the predators can react and make him their dinner! What a brilliant specimen to examine in the wild, we are very lucky to get a glimpse!

It's even funnier if you hear it in the honey badger voice.
