Ya gotta love the media…

For 3 years now Arian Foster and Ben Tate have been one of the more productive running back tandems in the NFL. But this week the media has decided to create a controversy.

San Diego played the run very well on Monday night and seemed to have Arian Foster somewhat contained. In steps Ben Tate who came into the game and picked up some tough yards. At one point Gary Kubiak spelled Foster and the cameras recorded Arian Foster venting in frustration about the pressure that the Chargers were bringing, making it difficult to find his cutback lanes that he normally exploits and so it begins. This is all it took to get the talking heads in the media in a frenzy with talk of a RB controversy. Today on every channel and from every angle the “reporters” have been brewing a thick stew of BS for the fans to digest while waiting for this weeks matchup against the Titans. Ben Tate has been Tweeting and posting on Facebook that he never waved Foster off the field as the reports have told us. The Texans do not have turmoil in the locker room as the media would have you believe. Try to remember that Arian Foster has not played at all in the preaseason and led the league in carries last year. Kubiak has been saying all offseason that he plans to reduce Foster’s touches going forward, what better time to take some carries away that games that don’t count. Unlike the Redskins who may have rushed Robert Griffin III back into action a little fast (only time will tell) Houston has the luxury of having a quality replacement to help lighten the load and ease Foster into playing shape, preserving his body for the real season The Playoffs. This is a team that is preparing to take the next step and bring a championship to the city of Houston. This team does not have a fire brewing at the RB position. However what the Texans do have is a long hated history with the Tennessee Titans. Afterall it is the Titans who once called Houston home and were ripped from the hearts of Houstonians leaving them lost with out  a team while Bud Adams and his Titans relocated to Music City. But this is Houston’s time now and the media needs a story and what better way to be the first to report that story than to invent it. So over the next couple days when you hear about bad blood in the Texans locker room just remember that there is plenty, but it is towards the opponent like it should be. Go Texans!!!
