New England Patriots
The bigger the game the better, at least that’s how Arian Foster has treated his first two trips to the postseason.
Foster became the first player in NFL history to rush for more than 100 yards in each of his first three playoff games on Sunday, tearing up the Bengals for 140 rushing yards. He began the feat last postseason by running for 153 yards against Cincinnati, followed by another 132 against the Ravens. Now, the three-time Pro Bowler turns his attention to the Patriots, against whom he struggled earlier this season.
During the Texans’ 42-14 blowout loss in Foxboro last month Foster managed just 45 yards on the ground, but it’s difficult to expect such a futile performance from him again this time around. Bill Belichick knows how talented Foster is out of the backfield and he sure isn’t giving the back’s Week 14 struggles any credence when preparing this week.
“I don’t think anybody cares right now whether he gained 145 yards or 45 yards. It’s more about what we have to do as...

DON'T MESS WITH TEXANS
Thanks to the Texans running back and Boston columnist Dan Shaughnessy, Twitter avatar material is now the new bulletin board material.
Just in case the Houston Texans needed any more fuel for this weekend's upcoming AFC Divisional playoff game, Boston sports writer Dan Shaughnessy provided them with some.
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster recently changed his Twitter avatar to this quote taken from a Shaughnessy article written on Sunday bashing the Texans after their Wild Card win over the Bengals...
Yeah, the Houston Texans have noticed Dan Shaughnessy's column in the Boston Globe. Arian Foster is making sure everybody else notices it too.
The Texans running back is using a passage from Shaughnessy's column as his Twitter profile picture. The passage refers to the Texans as "fraudulent" and "terrible" and asks, of the New England Patriots' playoff...
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster used what Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe wrote as bulletin board material by posting it as a his Twitter profile picture as they get ready to play the Patriots this week. I’m sure this will fire the Texans up a little more. After getting dismantled by the Patriots earlier in the season, it will be interesting to see how they play...
Arian Foster is using the disparaging words of a sports writer to motivate him for Sunday’s playoff game at New England.
A day after the Houston Texans beat the Cincinnati Bengals 19-13 to advance to the divisional round of the playoffs, Dan Shaughnessy wrote a column for The Boston Globe that bashes the Texans.
Shaughnessy calls the Texans “frauds” and says Sunday’s game...
Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy obviously decided that his Monday column had to get people talking. And maybe even thrust himself in the conversation for Sunday’s Divisional round game between the Patriots and Texans.
Doing a well thought out, well reasoned column on why the Patriots would beat the Texans wouldn’t get the job done. So Shaughnessy goes with the most effective...
The above is what Texans running back Arian Foster is now using for his Twitter avatar. It is a cut and paste job from the article Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe wrote yesterday in advance of next weekend's AFC playoff game between the Patriots and Texans. Shaughnessy is known for two things: being a troll while offending pretty much everyone, and making grandiose and hyperbolic...
Many NFL pundits aren’t giving the Texans much of a chance in their return trip to New England this weekend, not after stumbling to a 42-14 loss less than a month ago. Texans running back Arian Foster is soaking in all the doubt, though, and using it as motivation for his rematch with the Patriots.
Foster, who is very active on social media, changed his Twitter avatar to a photo...
Arian Foster of the Texans has a new Twitter avatar.
From Shaughnessy’s column yesterday.
Shaughnessy’s Column Used As Bulletin Board Material by @ArianFoster is a post from: Boston Sports Media Watch
The L.A. Lakers continue to disappoint fans, as they have lost 4 in a row for the second time this season. Fan frustrations are showing in every form of social media these days, as shown by a picture tweeted today by Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, who tweeted a photo of teammate Arian Foster as [...]
New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has seen it all, and his ability to diagnose opponents' strengths and tendencies is evidenced by the on-field instinct he displays.With the Houston Texans coming to town Sunday for a Divisional Round bout, Wilfork is preparing to defend the cut block. "That’s something that they do very, very well," Wilfork told...
After beating the Bengals 19-13 to open wildcard weekend for the second straight year, the Houston Texans (13-4) head into the divisional round as pretty heavy underdogs to the New England Patriots (12-4).
Though head coach Bill Belichick is inevitably sending a message that the 42-14 win in Week 14 means nothing now, Dan Shaughnessy has a different outlook in his column in the...
Everyone has their outcast. The red headed stepchild of the group which ruins jokes, doesn’t cover their nose when they sneeze, and tries desperately to fit in while inventing new ways to fail at life. In the Boston sports media, that title has been fought for by Dan “Shank the Curly Haired Boyfriend” Shaughnessy and Ron Borges for years now with Shank usually coming out on...
After a bye week off, the Patriots now know who their divisional round opponent is — and they should seem pretty familiar.
It wasn’t all that lone ago (just under a month, in fact) that the Houston Texans traveled to Gillette Stadium for what was billed as a heavyweight matchup between two Super Bowl contenders. The end result didn’t nearly match the hype, as Tom Brady and...
