    I kinda wish he wasn't such a philosophy douche, honestly.

    Whatever, as long as it helps him and as long as he continues being awesome, I don't care.

    I like thoughtful guys, especially after they step on the throats of the Colts defense.

    Philosophy says that the people you run over on the way to the endzone don't really feel pain, they only feel their perception of pain. Make them perceive alot.

    Haha, screw that, I'm glad he's a "philosophy douche". Its a nice change of pace to see a NFL player who isn't going to strip clubs every weekend with more jewelry on than the strippers at the clubs. Hell, its nice to see an NFL player that has the ability to construct a paragraph.

    I like his nuggets of wisdom. It's a nice change from players that know little more than partying.

    True. I guess what I was trying to say is that I'm scared he'll go all "Ricky Williams" on us at some point, saying his heart isn't in it and he has to go soul searching or something.

    I think it is nice to know that some players can actually speak English. Can talk in complete sentences. And actually put words to his thoughts that other people who speak English can understand.

    And obviously studied something other than basket weaving or speech in college.

    Couldn't find the nickname thread (okay, I didn't look), so I decided to drop this in here.

    That was deep, I'm really starting to like this guy and I like philosophy so it nice to see it in one of our players. A person who thinks a little more than the average guy will never bother me.

    From what I've seen his say about the game, he loves it, and it provides for him, and he enjoys the game. Plus, remember that he isn't on a huuuuge salary as well. AF can't do a Coffee.

    Give me Plato over Plaxico anyday.

    The only reason Williams "retired" was because he couldn't pass the NFL's drug tests. As long as Foster is clean on his tests, he can be as "new age" as he wants.

    He told the Tennesse press that he would do an interview only if it's conducted in "pterodactyl"...I think that is very funny and suggest his nickname should be The Pterodactyl.

    This is a good thread. I'd like to see more players like him... in other sports, too (especially hockey, not too many college graduates there). I'm looking forward to next week already. BTW, I'd go with "philosophy major" :cool:

    I'll be finishing my degree in Philosophy this year so personally I think it's fantastic having a player on our team that is a philosopher, an awesome dude, and a good football player all at the same time.

    Seeing his love for philosophy, his eastern religion based touchdown celebration, his incredible field vision and his physical play how about:
