Frickin' Kubiak. I can't wait to hear the explanation on this one. I benched the AFC Player of the Month because...I'm smarter than everyone else.
lulz, exactly. Like what the hell, I'm so glad Arian at least ripped that 74 yard TD, was almost like an 'in your face coach'. But yeah he's worth playing even if once every 100 carries he fumbles, its just the risk you take with an explosive guy like him or any other guy in the league. Pretty sure he didn't bench Schaub for 1.67 quater(s) for throwing two picks last week. He just needs to learn not to screw with his players heads and realize that even at the professional level players are going to make mistakes.
I read last night that it was for missing one meeting and being late for another.
Yep, I just read this one cbssports.com this morning:
Arian Foster, RB HOU
News: Texans RB Arian Foster made up for lost time in Week 4 against the Raiders. Foster rushed for 131 yards on 16 carries and scored two touchdowns in the 31-24 victory, despite not playing until midway through the second quarter. Foster was held out of the starting lineup for what the Texans said was a "coach's decision." He immediately made his presence felt once he took the field and took the game over in the second half. On the second play from scrimmage, Foster burst through a big hole and raced 74 yards for a touchdown, breaking tackles on his way to the end zone. Then on the first play of the fourth quarter, he caught a short pass from Matt Schaub that he took in for a touchdown. Foster had three receptions for 56 yards and a score. "I didn't handle my business off the field, I got disciplined for it, and rightfully so," Foster said. "I take full responsibility and I apologized to my teammates for it, and it won't happen again. And we're all about moving on here. I slipped up, and I'm assuring it won't happen again." Neither Foster nor Coach Gary Kubiack would say why he was benched, but the Houston Chronicle is reporting that Foster missed a team meeting and was late for another during the week. Foster finished with 19 total touches for 187 yards and two touchdowns.
Hopefully his name does not appear next to the words DUI, sexual assault, or jail time the next few days in regards to his "business off the field."
i still hate the steelers...
