Is Arian Foster What Deangelo Williams Would Be If He Had More Carries?

I watch both of these guys plays and I see a lot of similarities, DWill is faster and Foster is more physical, but I see a very close resemblance in running style and vision. Could DWill have that kind of production with as many carries as Foster has?

I don't think you understand a simple truth. DWill is the 2nd best player in the
entire NFL and our team. Foster is no where close.

YES! but only with a comprable running scheme. Our running scheme wasn't our major focus last year, the passing game was. With Fox, our running scheme was the major focus and it showed... and NO I'm not saying that I prefer Fox. What I am saying is that our O-line was not set up to be dominant in the run game. We used the run to set up the pass. The Texans use a very nice run blocking scheme that opens up holes for Foster, our running scheme was pretty basic. I look for us to become more balanced this year.

You should probably check your feelings at the door.

I think Foster has better hands. If you add Williams' and Stewart's numbers and then multiply by like 0.8 (because either one of them alone wouldn't be as good as they are together due to fatigue) I think their stats would be better or at least comparable to Foster's.

True that, a RB that doesn't fumble easily moves up the charts.
