    Lol, thanks. I've just been working, you know, the usual. :)

    Drop some wisdom? Hmmm....let's see. Sorry, fresh out of wisdom!

    I just rewatched a video I hadn't seen in a while though. I'll share it if y'all are interested.

    Don't wanna use your given name here, so will just say WELCOME BACK TMM!!

    Just love the "nerdie" look Arian has in that clip!! He is just awesome!! Personally, hope he sticks with his bowties! I love um!! :fostering:

    I'm so happy Arian will be a TEXAN for a long time. He's OUR'S and we are very PROUD Texans!! He's given us his heart, shown us passion, and topped it off with pure class! That spells WINNER, IMHO!!

    Hope to see ya here more often!!

    An athlete with a 'real' personality. Not a Chad Uno Pedejo or T.O., and him openly disliking fantasy football makes me like even more.

    What people saw as a "somewhat" strange attitude in college, I saw as maturity and having a mind of his own. He always has had his head screwed on right while some people think he's kinda out-of-this-world. Such is life, I guess.

    I wasn't surprised at all with the fruit basket; I'm sure you enjoyed it tremendously, and I'm happy for you.

    I also like this video:

    Your name is clearly spelled out there, so Gma didn't really have to hesitate using it :)

    Is it just me or does Arian remind you of Marshall Faulk the way he runs, footwork, cuts. If Foster stays healthy he's gonna regin supreme for several seasons.

    I think they are somewhat similar but Faulk has more fluidity in the hips while Foster changes gears and gets back up to speed very well.

    I hope Foster makes that list one of these days.

    Foster plants his foot harder on his cuts so they are more angular. Obviously Faulks style worked as well. Also when Foster hits top gear he becomes a long strider which is not Faulk.

    I'm sure many will disagree, but I think his style is kinda similar to Marcus Allen. Earlier in his career Allen might have looked for contact a bit more than Arian though. Allen had a very good cut and go too.

    I don't disagree at all. I've often thought their running styles were very similar and am reminded ever so often when the NFLN runs clips of Marcus during his prime. In my eyes, they're very, very similar.

    If Arian were a pitcher he'd have a nasty change up . If he were a PG he'd have a great cross over dribble . As a RB he's deceptive with a great change of direction .

    In the comments section:

    OK. Cris you started this site to trade chatting with the pros for inside information from the locals, since many hyper-studied the local team.I am not a hyper-home-team student, but I FINALLY can pay something back.When you talk to Connor ask him if he got his athlecism from the Irish Dance classes that his mom made all 4 Barwin boys take as kids. They were ALL real good at it. Make him dance for you.Finally, payback.

    Collinsworth's response is basically, "Now that's what I'm talkin' about. Look for it on SNF."

    I'm posting this in this thread because it is a matter of character, for which Tex Mex Mom deserves much of the credit.

    Link.

    If the Texans want to be regarded as a high character organization, then they have the perfect man at the runningback position.
