    Holes that you could drive a truck through. Just look at that run against the Raiders. Every defender is blocked and Michael Huff takes an angle that makes Michael Griffin cringe.

    I hated him at UT. He had the worst case of fumbleitous I've ever seen. Cost us our bowl game against Penn State a few years ago. I'm as surprised as anyone at his success. I actually liked Montario Hardesty from UT much more than Foster and I'm surprised when you compare the two, granted that Hardesty is on a much worse team than Foster, that Foster is having better success.

    An amazing O-line which fits his skills perfectly. Ben Tate has been just as good if not better. There's probably 50 NFL running backs that would put up similiar stats if put into the same situation as him.

    There's more to it than just holes.

    He makes cuts that make defenders look like high schoolers, breaks tackles, and powers over defenders.

    Of course he can play. I said he's a beast in the NFL.

    But he's probably on steroids.

    Because every RB that gets plugged in there performs just as good if not better. Steve Slaton, Ben Tate, & Arian Foster. He's very talented of course but he's not an elite RB unless you want to call Ben Tate an elite RB as well.

    Exactly where did I call him elite? I just acknowledge that he is a good RB. Something certain people on here have a hard time saying.
