    Arian was so good at finishing off drives. Whether it was from small little dumpoffs in the redzone or making defenders miss at the line of scrimmage in the redzone. Arian owns the redzone and everyone in Houston and fantasy land knows it. It will be a struggle in the redzone until Arian returns.

    We really could tell the impact of not having Foster today.

    But if he was out there today Schaub would have under thrown the dump pass.

    Amen. It seemed like every time we got into the red zone, Tate was spent and had to come out. Insert Slaton and that eliminates us trying to run the ball. How many times did we just go pass, pass, pass, field goal? Seemed like everytime. How many times did we do that last year with Foster? We just need actual running backs right now, not just Tate and some guy who looks like he's getting fatter every year

    Here's hoping Foster is ready to go next week. I'd expect a win anyway but Foster makes us even more explosive. Steelers D vs. our offense will be a fun matchup.

    Not just In the redzone.

    Tate's vision is better than slaton's, but nowhere near what foster's is.
