    Very cool pic!

    Has Arian always looked this thin?

    Barry looks like he could suit up right now.

    I think he looks smaller this year. I noticed it in preseason, but I didn't know if I just felt that way subconsciously because he turned into a vegan.

    @BarrySanders on the #Texans: "1 of those teams that are very balanced. Offensively, you almost have to pick your poison."

    @BarrySanders on @ArianFoster: “He’s a great, great player. He sees the field very well... (has) speed, great vision, quickness."

    He hasn't looked smaller to me. He is not wearing pads though, so it does make him look slighlt thinner.

    Not a surprise. He hated the Lions so bad, he retired early and said the hell with the rushing title.

    Yes, Arian looks thinner. Particularly in his legs. He doesn't push the pile like he used to either. To me that's the biggest difference.

    Here's a pic of Foster from July 2011, for comparison:

    He looks like he has more mass around his core.

    I'm not analyzing good or bad or the vegan diet. Just noticed that he looks thinner in the pic with Sanders.

    Man, nobody could jump sooo far sideways out of the grasp of defenders like Barry Sanders. Guys would drop their heads and grab for a tackle, coming up only with air and bewildered looks on their mugs.

    I like that polo. Gotta find me one.

    And Foster does look a bit leaner. You can see it in his face.

    incredible. where earl had inhuman thighs, barry's hips were similarly impossible. nobody can change speeds and direction like barry could. and thanks for the full speed link, it's even more impressive seeing how awful the lions' offensive line was.

    Imho, the greatest RB of all time. Give him an O line and he would have rushed for 2,000+ yds every season.

    What people also don't ever consider is that Barry Sanders ran out of the Run-n-Shoot offense which passed 95% of the time, and he still did what he did.

    And he sure did make the most of his attempts. May be the only back to have played 10+ seasons and average 5+ ypc.
