    He seems to have more faith in the Texans than I do at this moment however it's great to see him supporting them and standing with the fans in Houston.

    I wonder if Arian Foster saw that interview. He should listen to the man's advice and take pride that the greatest running back in history admires him.

    Dude, that was Awesome!!!

    Earl is the greatest, and he is looking really good. Glad to see him happy & comfortable.

    And I sincerely hope that Arian has seen that!

    Arian may not even know who Earl is without being told. I doubt Arian was even alive when Earl retired.

    You don't think Arian is a student of the game? Thats a pretty damn ignorant statement in my opinion.


    Wow. Have you ever heard of Jim Brown? Or Gale Sayers? Dick Butkus?

    Great players are great players.

    And the current players are not totally ignorant of the league history.

    It's fantastic to see Earl in good spirits. Still the greatest football player this city has ever seen, and perhaps will remain that way for a long, long time. Heckuva' nice guy, too. I'm glad our franchise is bringing him into the fold, even if just to honor him.

    When Ricky Williams was being recruited by UT they set it up for Earl to meet him during his visit and he had no idea who Earl was.

    And it is pretty well known that Ricky Williams has never been a student of the game.
