  1. 1. Why Was Foster taping the Chuckstrong Banner?

    • Out of Respect to Chuck.
    • Mocking the Colts TD Celebrations.


Recommended Posts

What do you think?  I heard one person I was watching the game with flip out because he thought Foster was mocking the Colts TD celebrations when they would run up and tap it and then another guy I watched it with thought it was cool that even Foster got how big Pagano being back was for the NFL in general.  I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt till proven otherwise and everything I have read about Foster says he's a class act so I think he was doing it out of respect but I thought I'd see what others thought.

I hate Foster when he plays us cause he's such a freaking great rb, but thats why I respect him. He was doing it out of respect. I was at the game and when Chuck was shown on the screen at the beginning, Everyone was clapping for him...even the whole Texans bench. But when its game time...the Colts pulled an awesome football killing of the Texans!!!

It was respect.      Nothing but pure respect.

It was definitely out of respect. Foster is a classy guy when it comes to the nitty gritty and there was nothing to show otherwise. If he would have faked a ripping it off or pretended to throw it to the ground that'd be different but it was a simple single/double tap and bow.

I didn't see it when it first happened during the game, but after seeing the replays of it, I also feel like he was paying his respect to Coach Pagano and his 1st game back !!!

I'm glad to see not a single person so far has thought it was mocking.

No...he's got an attitude but I thouhgt he wanted to make the statement.

He was sure he'd score sometime in the day and he planned it...

I give him all credit..He didnt have to do it

Everything I have ever heard about Foster is that he is a class guy and very thoughtful.  It never entered my mind that he was trying to mock Chuckstrong.

Was very classy of the team to show support both before and after the game. Foster showed the same. Hate him for running all over us, but respect the heck out of that. After the game is over, we are all human beings out here trying to make our way through life.

It may have been out of respect, but I was mad as hell when I saw the highlights! He scored against us and then does a celebration the Colts do to honor the Colts coach? Seems fishy to me...

Definitely out of respect.  Drew Stanton thought so too.  On his twitter he wrote "I've got a lot of respect for @ArianFoster after his TD today.  His celebration was the classiest I've ever seen!!! #CHUCKSTRONG"   Jerraud Powers then asked what he did and Drew replied "Tapped chuckstrong poster and bowed to it showing repect.  Unreal!!!"

 

 

That folks says all you need to know!  Classy move by a very very good player!

Yep, the "namaste" used by Asian Indians and a few others, including Arian Foster, denotes respect.

he came over to give Pagano a hug and words of encouragement after the game, that's all you need to know bout Foster and his respect for what Chuck went through. Tapping the sign (hash), pure class.

That was my first reaction also, I would like to hear something about it from Foster though?

It was out of respect but he shouldn't of tapped it like Luck would, that's what could've been perceived as a mock to some people. The bow alone would've been better.

The standing ovation from the Texans sideline after the one minute Pagano tribute, and the Foster tap to the banner to me were all legitimate, all real respect.  Division rivals are still within the broader NFL fraternity, and I saw respect yesterday.  It's such a small profession, and there are so many connected parts (Johnson and Pagano at Miami, for example), that I think the 'greater good' was not lost on the Texans yesterday.

Come on, Foster is a classy dude, he would never have the intentions of mocking an ill coach.

 

It was out of respect, and it's very obvious.

Just wanted to add that I couldn't catch the game on tv so I was listening to the radio app, so when I saw the highlights on the NFL network, my first reaction was what the....

 

But after reading everyone's response including this one, I seem to be wrong.

He bows after every touchdown no matter where he is.

 

I don't know if there are Chuckstrong banners in both endzones but if not then since he was running one in he just saw an opportunity.

 

He's a good guy.

This is such a silly topic. Does anyone really think he did it for any other reason than respect? Seriously?

Cassius Vaughn was on Sirius today and he said that although he didn't like that they scored, he thought it was great that Foster paid tribute to Chuck.

Really, we need a poll for this?

Anybody who thought he did that to mock Chuck in anyway should reexamine the way they look at people in general.

Why don't you read the post where I explained why I did the poll and you'll see that some people really did think that.  Clearly it's a minority and I disagreed with them as like I said Foster has been nothing but class but I was just curious to see if anyone else took it the way my friend did.  After all isn't that the point of a forum to get others opinions on subjects?

    • I get what you're driving at BLS. I just remember the nightmare known as Curtis Painter in 2011. Translation: Quality backups aren't that easy to find & there's no such thing as an elite 2nd stringer field general. They don't really exist meaning all backup QBs have flaws.    In layman's terms, when the face of your franchise goes down; you're basically screwed that calendar yr anyway because veterans off the street are injury prone with age & recovery issues & anybody worthy of your attention is locked down financially on other team rosters for the short term future. 
    • You can say that again WM. It's like some people think Jacoby will be great just because he was in the same room Brady was studying film a few times.    Look, I respect the hades out of Brady & his SB consistency. I also was amazed at how quickly Jacoby used wrist band numbers to execute our offense in short order. It just bothers me when players & coordinators under BB's coaching tree get all these job interview opportunities  & then when they leave Foxboro their clout fades too.    If anybody breaks this trend of leaving the Boston net & succeeding, Josh McDaniels will be the one to shatter this stigma IMO. [Yes, I think Josh will flourish in his 2nd HC gig too once that preferred vacancy becomes available. This happens a lot with your 2nd shot at the helm running a NFL program.]
    •   The owner of the company says 30 of 32 NFL teams use his service.       I'm sorry he didn't bring out the paper work to show it to you.     But typically,  unless there is reason to believe he's lying,  the man,  in this case,  Cris Collinsworth, gets the benefit of the doubt.   As opposed to you,   who doesn't like the service,  and just denies,  denies,  and denies.....   Oh,  and as for Chip Kelly......     Rich Dudes have lots of ways of making money.    They typically don't chose to make it by buying part of a company that, in the past,  they have openly said negative things about.      Goes to credibility.      They can invest their money elsewhere.   Kelly bought in because he likes what he sees.  
    •   None of those people talk in the 3rd person seriously.   If any of those three talk in the third perosn,   they are mocking themselves and others who do.   And having worked with on-air people who have huge talents,  I think I can say confidently that none of these three guys has an ego the way the current occupent of the White House does.     Not even close.     That man is in a league of his own.   Apologies for the political talk.    
    •     So far,  I confess I don't think of RG3 when I watch Brissett.      I think he's much more of a pocket passer than RG3 ever was.    I saw RG3 as an athlete who could play QB.      I see Brissett as a QB who has some athleticism.   Brissett is taller,  bigger,  heavier.     Not nearly the athlete but much more a physical presense.   6'4" 235 vs. 6'2" and 220.     I think Brissett is going through the normal young QB growth that most every young QB goes through.     I'd expect over time he makes fewer and fewer mistakes.       As for what we'd get for Brissett in a trade....    I don't know if you spend any time in the chat room during a game,  but this past Monday,  I spent some time there,  and when Brissett was good (1st half)  the Colts fans there had us gettng at least a 1st round draft pick for him,  and possibly even more!     I think a Day 2 pick is not far off,   he was taken in the 3rd round and demonstrated a good level of competence in a short amount of time.      I suppose it's possible he'd get only a 4,    but I don't see Brissett getting traded for a 5.     I think Ballard would much rather keep him than trade him for that.
