hell na, to fumble in the first pre season game is a NFL sacred sin. We should cut all ties with this joke of a RB. Who will never amount to anything in the NFL now because he fumbled the ball against carolina in the 2012 pre season opener.

I mean its not like the guy ran for 285 yards and 3 TDs in the play-offs last season. Our gashed the ravens for 132 yards and 1 TD. Rushing for the most yards against the ravens at home in a single game since 2003.

Wow what a scrub, who would trade for this crappy rb anyways.

I'm not too concerned. I have faith he'll get it worked out.

Didn't he have fumbling problems in college at some point?

Remember that time Foster straight abused two of the best defenders on the Steelers D, ran it another 60 yards for a game deciding TD?

As good as Foster has been for us these last couple of years, i've ALWAYS worried about him fumbling alot b/ c he's always swung the ball around away from his body like that...even when he was at Tennessee. & b/c he's done it for so long, Sadly i just think thats going to be something we're just going to have to live with with him.

im honestly surprised he hasn't fumbled more....

In this instance he didnt have the ball away from his body but he did have it "down low" , he has to keep it high and tight where its harder for a defender to poke it out.

Hell, I'm concerned. Preseason or not I don't like that, predictably IMO, Foster fumbled and Schaub threw a pick.

Those two plus the Texans performance deep in the red zone has me concerned....again.

Its risk and reward, without holding the ball away from his body the way he does he wouldnt be able to do all the cuts and jukes that he does to make people miss.

Go back and look at every big cut he has ever made to where the defender is juked out of his shoes and you will see the ball is always way out there. Its a way to maintain balance without doing it, he wouldnt make people miss like he does.

He's also fumbled 6 times (and lost 3) in his last 7 games (regular and post-season). That's 6 times in his last 188 touches - not counting last night.

When Slaton was having his fumbling issues, there were folks that compared his numbers to Adrian Peterson trying to justify continuing to use him. Any comparison between A.D. and Slaton is and was ridiculous. On the other hand, there is validity in comparing A.D. and Foster.

A.D. fumbled 16 times (lost 10) out of the 741 touches he had in the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Not good at all, but given everything he brought to the table, you lived with it. Since then he's fumbled 2 times (lost one) in 545 touches. He/The Vikings weren't content to live with it - however they did it, they appear to have fixed it.

Like A.D., Foster brings enough playmaking ability that you'll live with it it you have to. The Texans shouldn't have to.

Foster, Kubes, Chick Harris - Get it fixed!

I think other teams are starting to see that. Once a guy fumbles a couple of times I think the other teams starts to take notice. Hopefully it will not be an issue.

Hell yeah, I'm concerned. At the rate he's going he will be fumbling every time he touches the ball. That's over 270 fumbles this year.



In all seriousness, though: I think it's a major overreaction to one carry. In which he was eleven yards down-field.

Default Re: Foster fumbling

Adrian Peterson had a fumbling problem. If I remember correctly, he fumbled 9 times in one season. Yes, Foster needs to work on his fumbling problems, but he's not going to get traded because he's going to make explosive plays for us. He's our offense right now. Remember how our offense relied solely on him to make plays during the playoffs?

Plus, one preseason game does not have me worried at all.

Last I checked this guy - Walter Payton - was considered one of the greatest of all time. His NFL career started with 9, 10 and 11 fumbles in his first three 14 game seasons. Let's not overreact.

Maybe we should define the word "worry" for this thread.

Speaking for myself I worry, meaning I hope he's works on it this preseason, not I worry as in he will make us sorry we signed him, worry.

No biggie in the big pic, IMO.

I take it to mean you're (generally speaking) worried Foster will have fumbling problems this season. He's fumbled the ball seven times in 659 carries in his NFL career. There's no reason for me to think he will start struggling now.
