Default Foster Fun Fact

Foster Turns Short Pass Into Another Long TD

From Elias: Arian Foster caught a short pass and turned it into his second 78-yard touchdown reception this season in the Texans' 37-9 victory at Tampa.
The last running back to score on two pass plays of 75 yards or longer in the same season was Gale Sayers as a rookie for the Bears in 1965.

Impressive name. After last week Foster is statistically linked to two more HOF players in addition to Sayers.
Quote:
RB Arian Foster joined elite company in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. With four catches and 102 yards, he became the first back to record three 100-yard receiving days since Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk did it with the Colts in 1998. Foster's 78-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter made him the first RB since Walter Payton (1983) to record two 70-yard touchdown catches in the same season.

Another footnote to add when his agent negotiates his new deal. And I hope he gets paid, the man deserves it.

What I love the most about Foster is not only how he's handled the contract thing, but also how he's shown to be a great teammate with Ben Tate. I'm sure there is competition but he's handled it with class. He deserves the big pay day. All I have to do is look at Peyton Hillis to see how lucky we were to get Foster.

They're both deadly in space.

Forte -- 42 receptions, 439 yards, 1 TD, long 56 yds
Foster -- 31 receptions, 445 yards, 2 TD, long 78 yds

I think Foster's going to see the ball a lot more with Leinart as QB so his production should go up (although his ypc will probably go down.)

I prefer Foster but I'm admittedly biased.

if Foster didn't miss 3 games, he would probably have 45+ receptions.

I just want to take a moment to thank the guys who passed on Foster in my fantasy draft. I think I'll take a moment to quote myself the moment I hit the draft button...

The dumbest guy in the league drafted right before me, I was praying that he would do something stupid (like he always does) but he took Foster and I ended up with Jamaal Charles.

Epic names mentioned in conjunction with Foster. That's awesome. Hopefully these are little footnotes in an eventual Hall of Fame career as a Houston Texan. I'd love to see no. 23 retired someday and up in the rafters next to no. 80.

More fun facts: Miami was the only game so far this year where Arian didn't have over 100 total yards.

6 out of the 8 games Foster has played in this year, he has had at least 100 yards rushing or receiving.

Arian had 100 yards rushing & 100 yards receiving in the same game for the first time in his career this season. It was against the Titans in a 41-7 win.

WOuld have done it twice, but Tampa was beaten into submission and we didn't need him any more.

I hope Kubes tales a lesson from Terrel davis and starts to limit Foster's touches. Keep him around 300 total and there's some longevity there. Over that and Foster has a high probabality of a short career.
