    I like how he gives credit to the offensive line. Class act. Humble.

    He's one of those guys that continue to impact the game and society well after retirement...

    he won't be going bankrupt like many others. you can count on that

    I can hear that podcast all day.

    I recall when the talkingheads in town, around 2009, were saying we had such a bland mix of players with no personalities. The entire roster is so talented and each one has their own awesomeness trait. Arian the philosophizer, Cody the comedian, crazy eight, the ninja, barwin. All of these kids are great.

    If Andre Johnson is the first to get his jersey retired, Arian should be the second. In terms of class, professionalism, talent...they're like the Texans' own Killer Bees.

    He seemed pretty genuine. I am glad he got paid. Too many players get screwed by the NFL like matt forte.

    I wonder if the Bears offered Forte something like Foster's contract, would he accept it? Or hold out for more? The whole "I need to get paid" attitude really hurts negotiations.

    RBs need to realize if they don't hold out for exorbitant amounts, teams are a lot more likely to work with them. Perhaps ask for $45m instead of $55m.

    That being said, Chicago is probably also being a dickhead to Forte.

    I love Foster, I am so glad he is a Texan. The new era has begun and he is a huge part of it. Ready for the season to start right now; how about you?

    Morey wouldn't lowball a superstar. Nobody is dumb enough to lowball a superstar. Maybe David Khan, but that's it.

    That press conference should be one of those Houston sports history moments. Foster is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite htown sports icons.
