    I knew who wrote it before clicking the link, the only thing Chris Chase writes is awful hack job articles.

    They might be a-holes, but we have to first prove to these a-holes we can make the playoffs.

    Until the Texans make it to the playoffs (and this year looks like the best bet ever for that happening but that's beside the point) this a-hole has a point.

    At least that's how I see it. best way to shut people up is to succeed. The Texans are long overdue.

    An A-hole is an A-hole because he is an A-hole. Just like a tiger is a tiger because he's a tiger.

    Maybe he had to write a 1000 word essa...... I mean article. Admittedly I didn't read it, but don't think I need to.

    Insults in any media outlets no matter the source shows the quality of journalism.

    Same problem with the "news" of today, it is no longer reporting, it is the taking of a fact (event) and going on about personal opinion stated as fact to convince others to agree..... waste of time.

    That's what hit me. It was a gratuitous off topic comment. I could understand his expressing that opinion if he was making AFC predictions.

    I read the thread title and thought it was going to be Skip Bayless. This guy seems just as bad though.

    I wrote this...

    BTW, I think Arian needs to realize what world he is living in right now. I like the guy personally, but at the end of the day he is an NFL running back. The fantasy fans and roster cuts, injury settlements, franchising, etc. all come with the territory. JMO

    I thought Arian using "sick" was a little much. Not in the sense that is was too insulting or anything, but that fantasy-honks wanting him to recover from a little hamstring injury only because he's on their fantasy team doesn't warrant a "sick" label IMO...

    But for someone who considers themselves a professional to actually pen a piece this large for what I think is a "non-story" is stupid...

    I don't know if this is his weekly column/blog/whatever, but if so it shows laziness to ramble on and on about such a meaningless topic...

    A nobody trying to become a somebody on the backs of others -- sorry son, not gonna happen.

    AF would beat that tool at his own game - writing - then lock him in his school locker.

    Best thing to do is not click on the link. More hits = more money.

    I doubt they read the comment section anyways

    Chris Chase is pretty much universally despised as a hack writer on Yahoo, I think his actual specialty is tennis. If you put something in the comments section there it will just be buried in a matter of minutes, and just add to the cess pool that is the comments section on Yahoo. In other words it will do no good except give the page more hits and traffic, thus giving Yahoo more reason to keep that douche nozzel employed for writing simpleton material. In a week this will be forgotten as the focus will be on some other Twitter comment from some other athilete/celebrity.

    Something had to have set Arian off to post that. Someone somewhere said or posted something that got under his skin, then he turned to Twitter to vent, thus allowing a global ass-hat convention to commence over his one comment.

    Meh. I agree with the gist of the article.

    The last sentence was unnecessary, but it was otherwise spot-on.

    The guy rips Foster, saying NO ONE cares about him as a person, then tweets this to Arian...

    First of all, what Arian tweeted is a NON story. Then he toots his own horn by adding in the part of "front page of Yahoo" to make it seem like he is an important member of the media.
