Robert Foster: The BEST WR you've never heard of (Video)

Recommended Posts

 

This video really made me appreciate what a special talent we already have on the roster at WR. A 5 star recruit that wasn't living up to potential, but had a fire lit under his a** and turned it up the 2nd half of the season. 

The guy has a really high ceiling, and may turn out to be the best offensive weapon we have if he continues to make a great of strides as he did this year. Really excited to see what the future holds for him on the Bills.

Can't watch the video on my phone. Blocked by NFL. But I agree Foster has the tools and apparently now has the will and focus.

Foster is the next Antonio Brown minus the shenanigans. Even better story tho cause instead of 6th rounder he went undrafted.

...this kid heeding Shady's tongue lashing and McDermott's release and eventual re-sign served as major wake up calls for this youngster seem to be working...THESE messages hopefully are permanently ingrained in this lad's gray matter because camp competition looks pretty fierce.....wish I could remember the last time we were faced with "fierce camp competition"  predicament.....there's " (eventual) gold in them hills son"......you choose...

My hope is Foster continues to develop like he did after the PS mid season send down. If Foster continues to approach his career with the determination of working hard and getting better he can be a great one. He is young and needs guys to push him right now. I didn’t hear about the McCoy tongue lashing another poster mentioned. That’s why you need Vets around. Vets who work hard and are talented and good get the ear of the youngsters. The Vets can hand a guy like Foster a name and number and say ‘call this guy and ask him what he would of done different given a second chance’. The NFL is a privilege to play in. If Foster respects himself and the game he will be one of the pieces we look back at that turned this franchise around to where it belongs.

...think about the potential MILLIONS of financial rewards if you exploit the hell out of the opportunity.....these kids can earn more in their rookie contract alone than us working slobs will EVER see in a career working for what seems to be forever.....guess I missed the memo.....

I don’t see any comparison.. Foster is also 3-4 inches taller than Brown.

Nice. Thanks for posting!

 

His optimism is based on Foster's performance last year, plus the assumptions that 1) another speedster will take the pressure off of him, and 2) an improved o-line will give more time for the long plays to develop. Given the dismal state of our o-line and WR corps last year, combined with the off-season changes to those groups, it's safe to say that his assumptions are pretty reasonable.

 

Scientifically, it's a good hypothesis. I'm looking forward to seeing the experiment performed.

There are different ways to compare two things besides physical measurables. In this case the comparison is quite clear. Both players not highly regarded at all coming out of college who end up being big time deep threat playmakers and top rated receivers in the league. Foster was the most productive receiver in the whole league during that final stretch. That's a huge accomplishment with a rookie "inaccurate"  QB at the helm.

 

Is this a bold prediction? Sure. But I have very solid data to back this up. I'm not a homer type of guy either. Foster has potential to be every bit as dangerous as Antonio Brown.

Foster at the end of the year did not look like Foster early in the year. I’m not sure how much was him, how much was coaching or how he was used, but he didn’t look like the same guy. He actually looked like a legit NFL WR later in the year at times.

Never heard a more captivating voice.

Better than a 10 minute video of the same catches over and over from different angles covered by some ***** rap song by Lil young cheezy or whatever they call themselves now.

"They"...cute.

 

The fact that you know that rappers' names often start off ''Lil" or "Young" suggests that you probably follow rap music a lot closer than you're letting on.

 

In any case, I mute the music in many cases; this guy's voice is definitely mute-worthy.

My concern is that we may be faced with a "fierce camp competition" for a stable of solid #2 WRs. It would be nice if one of these guys could develop into a solid #1. 

 

Foster may, indeed, be the guy to get there, as he has likely not yet found his ceiling. After Foster, we have a bunch of solid guys who, while they may not have yet reached their ceiling, have been playing professional football long enough that we could assume they are probably pretty close.

...good assessment...hard to remember the last time we were faced with talent conundrums......during the "drought", we were either shoppin' at K-Mart for "blue light specials" or signing the homeless guys at Interstate exits...SMH.........

Absolutely.

 

Remember how he looked in the preseason? :wacko:

 

Then came that first game against the Jets. :o:w00t:

...surreal versus real......us poor working slobs trying to equate THE ideal job opportunity to (HOPEFULLY) come along in our careers, vaunting us to another level versus these kids getting millions+ opportunities as 20 somethings right out of the gate...AND....choosing to blow it...guess I missed the memo.....

‘Never heard of’?  Thanks, but I read last year’s thread...😁

You, @BringBackFergy & I were about the only ones who saw promise in Foster going into last season. So many here were ready to cut bait in the preseason.
