    Foster wants more 'self-governance'

    If anything, I'm just happy that he knows we're doing something wrong, and has a plan to fix it.

    Nice read. But I have to ask........by a player that has been "active" for essentially only ONE year? It speaks fairly poorly for the truly veteran "stars" on our team. "Lead by EXAMPLE" should be a given..........."Lead by COMMAND" is a characteristic shown within all successful teams.

    In 10 years, I can only think of two or three players that qualified as "leaders". Payne, Walker and Glenn. Walker was more of a bad boy, big mouth type and I didn't care for him much towards the end. I think MW should carry that role today but he doesn't seem to interested in it. Maybe he would be a more vocal leader if the media hadn't beat on him so hard following the '06 draft.
    AJ and Schaub seem to be content to lead by example, though AJ seems to be getting more vocal and showing more emotion as he's gotten older and wanting to see this team win some playoff games.

    What he really wanted to say:

    "Our defense sucked"

    There's a party atmosphere in the Texans lockerroom.

    There are no true leaders in the lockerroom.

    Fosters statements are just another sign of a disfunctional organization. It starts at the top with Billioaire BoBBY and his cash cow that are the Texans.

    Actually what he wanted to say was:

    "This locker room would make such a great choir. We got guys that do what they are told by coaches but they don't address it when another guy isn't doing his job because this organization is so interested in keeping that clean cut image. What we need is a Ray Lewis kind of guy that comes in every day to be great and not just to make the team. A guy that works hard, shows his hardwork on the field and when the guy next to him isn't getting it done does everything in his power to make sure that issue gets addressed right there! All the good teams have that on their team. New England - Brady (Bruschi when he was playing too), Indy - Manning (ever see him when someone doesn't block or a receiver misses a catch. Better yet go on youtube and see how he handled Saturday complaining.) New Orleans - Brees, J. Vilma, Chargers - Rivers, Jets - the whole team.

    Answer to that is to start opening the checkbook and get more vets in here.
    Basing your entire team on draft picks is going to get you yes men more times than it is going to get you leaders.
