I tell my kids at least a dozen times a day “It doesn’t have to be that hard.”
If someone in Houston could share that wisdom with Arian Foster, we’d appreciate it.
The Texans running back came back after missing two practices with an undisclosed injury, and “talked” to reporters.
“I’m just trying to be the best teammate I can be,” he said in response to every question, via Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle, who didn’t have much tape to transcribe.
Foster had declined all interview requests from the local media since the end of last season, and refused to talk during the opening days of training camp.
Maybe he’s just trying to adapt to new coach Bill O’Brien’s Belichickian ways, or maybe he saw Marshawn Lynch play peek-a-boo with his media responsibilities during the Super Bowl and thought it was cute.
Whatever it was, it was pointless.
