    Just in case you know.... Here's to the greatest runningback this franchise has ever had.

    He was fun to watch, that's for sure.

    Some guys just aren't lucky when it comes to health

    Third best running back from scrimmage. Ever!

    Get well soon Arian, and thank you for all of the great memories.

    Always liked him. I know people wished he would just shut up and play football, but I only really ever cared about what he did on the field. And he was great. I will still rock my Foster jersey (once I start wearing Texans crap again).

    I found him pretty thoughtful and felt like he had more intellectual curiosity than the average football player. The baby-mama drama soured a little of Houston on him and being perhaps the only "out" atheist in the NFL was never gonna endear him to this bible belt fanbase.

    Still he would have been more popular here if he weren't injury prone. I don't really have much sense of anyone else on the roster except that Cushing is kind of a maniac and Watt still has enough Midwest farm boy to get off on a childhood TV crush paying attention to him on Twitter when he is maybe the biggest football star on the planet.

    The rest of the team just kind of morphs into a meh, and that is with the 4 episodes of Hard Knocks providing "insight"

    Remember when he was sick and tired of being asked the same ol football questions by reporters.

    Welcome to irrelevancy, Foster. You've played your last game for the Texans. You'll be long gone and forgotten about.

    That is the nature of the RB position. You gotta use em all up, make sure you squeeze every single ounce out of him before he's done.

    Oh well, at least we got five good years out of him, on to drafting our next workhorse.

    Probably the most important player in franchise history. The trajectory of the team changed when he came on at the end of 2009.

    Not bad for an Undrafted Player. Not bad at all.

    I think he has been the most valuable player in the history of this franchise. I think you can argue that he is the greatest Texan.

    My favorite moment is still the time against Pittsburgh when he juked the living s*** out of Troy Polamalu.

    This is the game where he truly went beast mode. Singlehandedly almost beat the Ravens. I wish Schaub was healthy or we would have.
