Texans back Arian Foster changes Twitter avatar with critical article
Foxborough, MA, United States (4E Sports) – Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has made a declaration that he’s ready to play in the upcoming AFC second-round playoff showdown against New England Patriots on Sunday after changing his Twitter avatar with the first three lines of a column from a Boston Globe writer, who called the Texans ‘fraudulent.’
Foster changed his Twitter profile picture Tuesday in response to a critical column by Boston Globe writer Dan Shaughnessy.
Foster is apparently motivated of the first three lines of Shaughnessy’s article that he purposely put it as his avatar on his Twitter page.
“The 2012-13 New England Patriots just became the first team in NFL history to get back-to-back byes before advancing to the conference championship game.
“Could this get any easier?
“I mean, seriously? The planets are aligned and the tomato cans are in place. The fraudulent Houston Texans are the only team standing between the New England Patriots and a trip to the AFC Championship game. All the Patriots have to do is beat the terrible Texans. One week from Sunday. At Gillette Stadium.”
Foster, who just ran for 46 yards with one TD in New England’s 42-14 thumping over the Texans on week 14, hopes to silence his critics on Sunday and lead Houston to its first ever stint in the AFC Championship game.
The Texans running back is coming off a 140-yard, one-TD performance against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Texans’ 19-13 AFC wild card win last weekend.
