Foster named NFC Offensive Player of the Week
"We know he's strong, but he seems like he should be more of a shifty guy," Panthers QB Jake Delhomme said of Foster after their 24-6 win over the Falcons last week.
"He has so much power. He keeps on moving and grinding those legs. It was beautiful to watch. He just kept on going. When you can hand the ball off as a quarterback, you have so much of a better chance to win. If you can run the ball effectively, it gives you a greater chance to be successful in the passing game."
Despite only 6 career starts, Foster's 1,209 career rushing yards ranks sixth on the Panthers all-time rushing list, 1,321 yards behind leader Tshimanga Biakabutuka, who leads the list with 2,530 yards.
Foster's 71 yard run against Kansas City last season stands as the longest run in team history.
If he keeps up the same level of play that he displayed against Atlanta, Foster can expect more accolades of this ilk and a fat payday when he becomes an unrestricted Free Agent after the season.
