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. 


Thank You Peyton! I look forward to the day you come home and we get to do this good bye thing right!

Really? Everything I have ever read on about him states how he's a soft-spoken classy guy. I'm 99.99% positive it was out of respect.

especially considering that after he tapped it he bowed to it too.  Nothing but a class act imo

I voted respect -- Never crossed my mind that it was anything but a gesture of tribute.

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 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 !!!

Foster is a great guy. Classy move, made me smile after the BRUTAL lack of run defense up the middle.

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...

I thought it was a fine gesture from a player whose reputably got a great attitude, more sportsmanship like this is needed in modern sports.

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!

I truly believe it was out of respect. Only a coward would mock that particular celebration and Foster is a classy guy from what I hear.

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.

Ask the same sort of question - was the fan who stood up and wiped it clean being classy?

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? 


Thank You Peyton! I look forward to the day you come home and we get to do this good bye thing right!
