Default Arian at #25 top 100?

I know the Top 100 on NFLN is more or less a joke but to make Arian #25 is just ludacris! Even Cushing thinks so:

I hope Arian plays angry this year because he is Top 10/15 players in this league easily.

Seems like Arian still has something to prove. I like it, extra motivation.

I thought he should have been in the top 15 easily, but I like the fact that this will give him some extra motivation.

I also have to say that despite Jacoby being known to say and do some silly things in his time here in Houston, he really did a great job of representing Arian during that piece. I wonder if he's telling Ray Rice right now though if Arian's still the best running back in the game.

Default Re: Arian at #25 topp 100?

The only running back i could see being ahead of him is Peterson and that's obviously pre-injury. The players are morons. Ray Rice is really good, but i don't think he's better than Foster in anything, and it was laughable how easily we shut him down in the playoff game. MJD is good in everything but not great at anything. And i honestly don't know much about McCoy but I don't see him replicating last year's numbers again.

He's young, and hasn't made a lot of friends in the league yet. In a couple years, he will be way up there, it just takes time to make all the connections and be on Sportcenter 24/7. This list is somewhat of a popularity contest anyways, so don't sweat it, the real contest starts in September.

He's never going to get his due until he's 4 or 5 seasons in. The way that Arian ran during the 2010 season, I honestly believe that Arain could've ran for 2000+ yards if we were dedicated enough to it.. I've even said it then. During that season there were a LOT of times where we went away from him and the running game. There were times where we completely ignored him.

Here's the deal though.. This zone scheme, even though it's ran by every team in the league.. (which I've told many Titan fans, because they run the same system we run) has been so successful, this coaching staff now has a stigma where other players/fans think it's just a "system". They completely ignore the talent that Arian has where he is obviously a player who would excel in ANY SYSTEM that he happened to play in. Hell.. just on his vision and receiving ability alone he would be a top RB. However that is the reason why MJD will be listed much higher on the list than Arian Foster was listed when he led the league in rushing, led the league in receiving, ran for more yards than MJD did, and scored more a helluva lot more TDs than MJD did. People and players think it's just because of the system that he plays in.

Is Payton a system QB(?), because he was allowed to operate strictly out of a shotgun almost his entire career? (and now Denver is talking and trying to build that same offensive system around him) Is Brady a system QB(?), because he was able to operate within a NFL spread?.. (the same system that allowed his backup to lead a team to a 11-5 record?) Great players are born.. not made, but put in the right system they can become exceptional...Arain Foster is and has been a great player and because of his system which fits his skills to a tee.. he now has the ability to be exceptional.

Default Re: Arian at #25 topp 100?

Hey I hope they keep rating him below several other RB's. Emmitt Smith always ran with a chip on his shoulder in part because of the comments made before the draft but also because of the comments made about Barry Sanders and about Smith's OL. Not arguing the merits here but I think those things all combined to make Smith run angry for lack of a better description.

Keep calling it the OL, keep calling it the system - run angry Arian or as he might put it run for poetic justice.

Default Re: Arian at #25 topp 100?

I would expect Arian Foster to have landed somewhere in the top 10, and the homer in me says he even deserves Top 5.

But to say he's #25? Yikes.

That smells like there;s a few NFL players who have the red ass due to Foster and are not giving him his due just so they can spite him. Haters.
