Cool story man.

I am having trouble understanding the first and third tweets. The first says he is the third fastest, but the last makes it sound like he will be the fastest by number of games to reach 5,000 scrimmage yards.

He is the 3rd fastest in NFL history to get to where he is
Only looking at the all time yards from scrimmage leaders, he's #1

It just means there were others who were faster who disappeared before they became an all time leader

Arian Foster: Foster on pace for 3rd fastest to 5000 yds
Arian Foster - RB - HOU - Sep. 22 - 12:47 pm et

Arian Foster is on pace to be the third-fastest RB in NFL history with 5000 yards from scrimmage.
Only Edgerrin James and Eric Dickerson have done it faster. Foster has 4633 yards in 37 games, which is more than all of the NFL's top-ten leaders in yards from scrimmage. Through 37 games, Emmitt Smith had 3368 yards from scrimmage, and Walter Payton had 3974. That's extremely impressive production from Rotoworld's No. 1 ranked RB for Week 3. Sep. 22 - 12:47 pm et

I remember going to training camp a few years ago right after we drafted Tate, and really focused on the running back position. I was asked about Tate from friends, and all I could tell them was "He looked ok, but man Foster looks good. He looks like he's head and shoulders above the others right now."

I had no way of knowing he'd be this good, but you could see in the way he worked that practice that he was comfortable with the system and was decisive hitting the holes. Kubiak is going to have to throttle down his touches some though if he wants to preserve him. History has shown guys with a ton of touches just don't hold up over time. I'd like to see him have a long and successful career as a Texan.

Congrats to Foster on his achievements and I hope too he has a long successful career as a RB in the NFL! But, I'm still concerned about his being a vegan and how this will affect him and his career. Just can't help but think it will shorten it. Sorry for the negativity but I just can't get it out of my mind!

I went plum loco from excitement when we picked up Foster as an UDFA. He was on my radar from Tennessee, and I just had a gut feeling that all the man needed was a second chance. I admit, I was disappointed when he did not miraculously ascend to the starting role after training camp that first year, but this is the NFL not a fairy tale. Besides, his fairly tale came not too long thereafter. Go Foster. Get on with your bad self.
