Evaluating Arian: What to make of the Arian Foster in Bill O’Brien’s offense

2013 was a dismal season all around in Houston. For the team, for its fans, and for tailback Arian Foster. After a 2012 campaign in which he netted 391, Foster managed just eight starts, playing through injury for most of the year before being shut down. His per carry totals weren’t all that bad, but the cumulative numbers and the scoring production were below all expectations...

Houston Texans have a running back by committee approach

The Houston Texans want  to throw the ball a lot this year. With Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing it I am pretty sure they will be running the ball more than they think.
