    Best vision in the NFL. He sees holes nobody else can see! Foster is the difference in the redzone friends!

    Who saw that shove he gave Ike Taylor when he got that TD?

    Dilfer just called him "Adrian" Foster on the BSPN highlights.

    Didn't "Adrian" Foster lead the league in rushing last year? You would think Dilfer would make the effort to get his name right.

    This guy also turns plays that should be dead into positive yards. I am excited for him, I think he can be a special player if he stays healthy and on the Texans. Pay him Rick!

    it's amazing how he adjusts his speed to the flow of the play until a hole develops. Unlike many others who just take the ball and run ahead as fast as they can.

    Foster is the difference maker. You can't, repeat can't as in cannot, just plug in any RB and think you will get the same results.

    Foster cuts and changes directions like one of those exotic super cars.

    I think Foster meditates under a tree before each game cus he sees the whole almost a full second before it develops. That or he is Mosses and parts the DLine.

    Taylor deserved it. If he didn't want it he shouldn't have run all that way to get it. He could've just as easily ran off to the side or slowed down, instead he ran up to get in Foster's way and Foster shrugged him off like the ***** move that he pulled!!

    Oh give him a break, more than likely he's been called "Dilhole" his whole life.

    And if Tate could've stayed in the game, that running game was only going to get scarier. When Tate ran for his huge run, Pitts DLine was gassed from having to tackle Foster. I know Troy P. got his shots on Foster but I can honestly say I've never seen a running back get Troy P. frustrated the way Foster did to him.

    Personally I think we need to stop singing the graces of our RB's and talk about what a great job our offensive line is doing this year. They are likely one of the top 3 offensive lines in the game this year.

    No more Chris Myers sucks threads.. and the sack #'s are looking pretty good this year outside of the Miami game.. We have only allowed 6 sacks through 4 games. This is pace for what rougly 25 sack this year, which is a really nice number.

    Nice job offensive line. I do have to give Gary credit sometimes, and the way our offensive line has come together is far better than we have ever had previously with the Texans.

    No doubt the O-Line deserves major props, they are doing some fantastic run blocking.

    That said, Arian Foster is a cut above, he's special. I have been saying it for some time. His vision and balance are so out of this world it's unbelievable. Great pass blocker, great hands, and enough top end speed to take it to the house.

    That play where he jump cut to the right and may Polamalu miss in the backfield and then scampered for 20 yards was a thing of beauty. He made one of the universally recognized top defensive players look silly more than once yesterday. He's special.

    Seeing Foster gobble up 155 yards against a Steeler defense was a thing of beauty. :photos:

    I especially liked seeing Troy Polamalu getting burned by the juke moves. Dude was out of position more times than I've ever seen in a game. You could tell it was getting to him, too, especially toward the end of the game when they knew the Texans were probably going to win. There are not many playes that can do that to Troy P.

    Actually, Chris Myers has always been an asset in the run game, but the last couple years he's become a damn good pass blocker. You don't see pressure up the middle very often. There were plenty of times when Myers first joined the team when the play wouldn't result in a sack, but the pocket would look like a W, and gave Schaub nowhere to step up. Myers is doing a great job these days (really, it's been a while).

    Also, Duane Brown is having a great season that no one's really noticing.

    That is THE best kind of season for an offensive lineman to have.

    Yeah, but watching him out in space in the run game is awesome.

    Just read a Nick Scurfield tweet that Foster's 155 yards are the most given up by the Steelers since 2003.

    Sweet! They mentioned during the game that Foster's 20+ yard TD run was the longest that a Steelers D has given up since 2006. :thumbup

    The only Samoans Arian Foster worries about are the kind the Girl Scouts sell...Arian does not like coconut.

    I would say that Arian made Troy Polamalu look like Vili Fualaau. Too bad he already does.
