Let's be honest here, how many years came Foster play at this level? 4, 5, 6?

Most running backs average career shelf life is something like 2.7 years.

Why do people like you feel entitled? Is it because youve been here longer, do you think your post count is the definition of a dedicated poster and fan? If so, you're wrong

I feel entitled simply because I'm better than you. again.
As far as AF getting franchised, I think he'd be OK with it considering the Texans cap woes at the moment. AF is a different cat altogether and I just don't see ego taking over. Having said that, I really hope the Texans do this young man right, because he's everything the Texans value in a player. He's humble, VERY productive and doesn't have any off-field issues. His biggest controversy is calling out players who got upset with his hamstring ijnury because of FF. Even that was blown out of proportion by todays 24 hr. news coverage paparrazzi.

Love watching Foster run. But seriously. Olandis Gary gained 4 yds per carry for Gary Kubiak. Keep building the O line. Never ever take the O line for granted.

I wish we could pull off a Portis for Bailey type trade with some clueless GM that doesn't understand that.
If it were that easy, you & I would be running real NFL franchises.

It takes the right eyes to identify the right back, the right center, the right OL men, the right receivers, TE, etc...

Then it takes the right teachers to instruct, guide, nurture the talent.

Then It takes hundreds of hours to hone the physical skills, the mental calls.

At least with Arian, at least you know you've got the right back. & If you know Kubiak, you know you have a serious pro.

Trent Richardson..... just like all the other draft picks... is a roll of the dice.

If the Texans lose Arian, that would be a huge blow to the running game and team.

No sir, you would be wrong in this case. This is exactly one of the reasons that I don't spend near as much time as I used to.

Because this board wasn't cluttered with newcomers NOT READING OTHER THREADS BEFORE THEY START THEIR OWN??



We like a tidy board. Tidy = (equals) less expensive for those that run the board and those (small percentage) that donate to it...

Maybe the mods should step up and merge threads then, its not that hard.....if they dont have enough mods than ask some to help


And again, don't lump all noobs into this category because its a stereotype and unnecessary

Not to mention all of you were new at one time, it took a lot of error and trial before you all realized how to run a successful board so don't sit on your high horse and pretend to be better than the new comers

Because it's the same damn thread as the other one. If you're new, shut up, sit back, and learn how things are done. Maybe everyone should just start their own thread on the same subject. Hey guys, I was at the gas station and some random guy said we might tag Foster...lemme go make a thread. Oh what, we're gonna tag Mario now? I'm gonna make a thread because I'm smarter, more handsome, and more important than everyone else.

Why are you so butthurt about this? Did I say anything to you? Mind yours. I said nothing about post counts so you sir/ma'am can go kick rocks.

It really isn't a difficult request that people look for similar threads before creating new ones. Generally we do merge them but why make us do it if a quick scroll will reveal the existing thread? We tend not to merge them if they get too developed before we see them and it would confuse the conversations. Just help out with keeping the house clean.
