When I first glanced at the thread title I read it as ‘Reuben Foster’ and was going to say WTF?   lol 

 

 

 

Congrats Robert!

What makes him potentially special is his ability to separate.

 

And although he has a very good time 40 speed, he actually seems to play even faster than his measured speed.   

 

He is GAME DAY FAST!

Just like Josh.  They should do a foot race.

I didn’t either until the “can foster be a #1 WR” thread happened and I looked it up.  If he works at it, he could be special.

Gotta be happy for the kid.  There were plenty of doubters.  I was one of them, I thought he belonged on the practice squad till he figured out his case of the dropsies.  He always seemed like a great route runner, but to me his real improvement has been actually catching the ball.  Great UDFA pickup

Foster has been a nice suprise

 

This is what the silver lining is in a rebiulding year.....finding these diamonds in the rough that can actually play and getting them under contract.

 

This is our deep threat guy......he should only get better..he has size and great speed.....we need 2 more just like him.

I believed in Foster from PS. 

Let me pat myself on the bak now.

 

 

On some real ***** tho.

I knew if Foster could clean up his techniques he could be an NFL WR. Its not like he wasnt getting open, he was just dropping it or mis-tracking it. Id rather teach the guy who can get open and separation from defenses how to track the football and catch it then the opposite.

Lets hope McKenzie continues to develop as well! If we can grab a top WR this off season and unscrew the OL things will look much different next year.

He was banned to just the Alabama thread. 

 

Cant remember that ever happening on here before.

At times it seems that much of the forum's like or dislike of a player is influenced by that player's strongest advocates or detractors.  I'm pleased to see Foster get this nomination, without 'Planejumper' here to tell us all we weren't smart enough to see Foster's talent the first day he set foot in the Alabama locker room.

Nomination. Not award. Yet. 😁

this is fantastic.  Bills player nominated 2 weeks in a row. 

 

Foster also looks much improved during the year.  His route running looked great last week.   Ran a lot of intermediate routes.

I was much more impressed with Foster this week. The big catches are great, but this week he just sort of got his yardage here and there, and built it up gradually. When they showed his yardage on the screen I was really surprised he had so much

He had everything coming out of Alabama except playing time and production.  Buffalo took a chance, presumably on Brian Dabolls recommendation.  It's a great story, and he could turn into a mainstay of the Bills' offense for years to come.

I also assume Daboll was involved because Foster said at one point that the Bills were the only team to show any interest in him.

Must of died of a broken heart when McCarron was exiled to Oakland and Foster was dropped to the practice squad.
