As if Arian Foster wasn’t already one of the most likable guys int he NFL, he goes out and does something that will get him even more love from the people that already adore him. Usually when a player or team gets some nasty criticism, they use it as bulletin board material. This means it goes up in the locker room and is used as motivation heading into a game.
Foster has updated the bulletin board to the 21st Century and has made a blurb from a harsh article about the Houston Texans his profile picture on his Twitter account.
Here’s a look at the picture, which is a snapshot of a recently article written reflecting on how the Patriots blew out the Texans on Monday Night Football:
That’s so zen.
Foster’s new twitter picture comes courtesy of the thoughts of Boston Globe writer Dan Shaughnessy, who penned the piece after the Texans narrowly beat the Cincinnati Bengals at home in the AFC Wild Card.
While the Texans do have a tall order ahead of them when it comes to stopping the New England Patriots, all hope is not lost. Foster clearly isn’t letting the expectations ahead of him get to his head, and Houston is likely feeding off of that. This is a team that was once in line to be welcoming in the Patriots to Houston, but thanks to consecutive losses to end their season, the situation is reversed.
However, Foster isn’t letting that bum him out, as Houston is looking to flip the script from last year’s exit from the playoffs and survive to play in the franchise’s first ever AFC Championshp game.
