    Cowboys and Chiefs put 200 yds on the ground against baltimore, we did 177. Any given Sunday but I'd still guess around 120 yards on 23 carries or so for Foster.

    but we mainly attacked thru the air on the balt game. I think if chris johnson can run like that i be very disapointed if run game doesnt pick up.

    Foster makes his yards like few back I've seen. Barry Sanders would simply make you wonder where he went while Foster tends to let you go where you thought he was going, and proceed once you were done.

    I remember Buffalo having nothing for Houston's running game last time and I don't think they are that much better.

    Advantage: Foster

    We'll have targets on our backs now for the rest of the season. There will probably be some teams that will get up a little easier to play us than a team with a losing record going nowhere. The first part of that is they're going to focus on stopping the run.

    Our most complete half of offensive football was the first half against Denver. We softened up the defense with some shots downfield and we were able to run the ball effectively as well. I still believe we'll see more of this as the season goes on. The one game that concerns me is the Chicago game because of their Tampa 2 defense. OD, Arian, Martin and Jean all may have to step up in that one because their weakness is in the middle of the field.

    think we should give more carrys to forsett, I liked his style in ravens game.Foster is more of a route runner but forsett has serious speed and strength and can be a really good starter once foster lays down his pads. sometimes routes just art there and you just got to make your own.

    Foster is 26 years old and has a lot of football left in him. How do you suggest keeping your job by phasing out our best running back in team history --at 26--- because he's washing up?

    didnt say he was close to retiring just nice to have a back up that scares defense if god forbid like last year foster went down..we didnt have the luxury of having 3 very good backs like we do this year.

    You said "give more carries" and mentioned "laying down his pads."

    Sorry. English is my first language.

    I think Kubiak himself could run for 100 yards against Buffalol.
