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.
The Broncos didn't have a luxury like Ben Tate backing up Terrell Davis.
Ben Tate should help to extend Arian's career.

"HA!"
Additionally, I believe we'd all like to thank the 31 teams who passed on him in the real NFL draft seven distinct times, allowing the Texans to sign the guy who may wind up being the undisputed best undrafted free agent in NFL history.

HA!

Yep. I'd thought of that. But, thankfully, not all 32 teams passed on him completely.

Phew!

I love how Kubes mixes in all the backs. You look at someone like Adrian Peterson who gets the ball every single down and you wonder how long he's going to last for. He's a rare breed so it's hard to tell. In terms of Foster, Tate and even Ward take a lot of the beatings on Foster's behalf. It's going to really help his longevity throughout his career.

This is a good read, check it out:

Quote:
But Foster, given his stunning breakout last season, would seem to be the least patient with the arrangement. His modest free-agent deal expires when the season ends, and he’s seeking a windfall.

One for all, all for one

So you’d think he would be demanding the ball every down.

“No. Hell no,” he said. “I don’t have an ego … at least not a big one. I’m just not that into myself. (Sharing the load with Tate and Ward) will keep me fresher. We’ve got a long way to go.”

Foster is on pace to gain 1,184 yards, compared to 1,616 in 2010.

But Tate’s 10-game numbers factor out to 1,066 over 16, up from zero a year ago. Together, that’s 2,250 yards, exactly what Carolina’s Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams combined for in 2009 to become the NFL’s most prolific thousand-yard duo.

“Matt (Leinart) will be fine,” Foster said. “We’ll keep the pressure off him if we just keep doing what we’ve been doing.”
