Human beings should not be able to move like Texans running back D’Onta Foreman.
The 6-foot, 233-pounder moves like a much smaller man as he demonstrated Wednesday night by hurdling poor Panthers defensive back Cole Luke.
Foreman ran for 2,028 yards and 15 touchdowns last season at Texas and was a third-round pick of the Texans in April’s NFL Draft.
If Wednesday’s match-up with the Panthers is any indication, Foreman is looking to prove he should have been drafted much higher.
It’s not to say that I knew going in that I was going to love what we were doing (with a quarterbacks coach) or what we were trying. It was just a trial-and-error kind of thing. I ended up liking a lot of the stuff that I was learning and doing.
As far as training and th the rest of my body, it’s not so much different. Training the way my arm is now? Yeah, for sure it’s different and I think it’s helping me. I feel really good throwing the ball.
Do you throw as much in the offseason now as you did three or four years ago when you were younger?
Honestly, that’s kind of part of this. A little bit part of the program that is intensive is throwing in the offseason. That’s something I didn’t have as much of a set thought process or plan on maybe then as I do now. I used to throw maybe just a couple times a week, two or three. Now, it’s probably a little bit more than that. It’s a change-up but something that I think helped me kind of step right into (training) camp and feel no arm soreness, the general stuff that every quarterback feels. I feel like I’ve gotten ahead of the curve on that.
