HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Perhaps we can all thank Houston Texans running back Arian Foster for the latest lesson in dealing with those so-called “haters” and “doubters” many of us come in contact with on a regular basis.
The latest jab against the Houston Texans’ pending match-up against the New England Patriots came in the form of an editorial posted by Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy.
In Shaughnessy’s column, he writes that the Houston Texans are “fraudulent” and even uses a”tomato cans” reference:”The 2012-13 Texans? Pure frauds. The worst 11-1 team in the history of the NFL. These Texans have absolutely zero chance of beating New England here next week. And everybody knows that this is true.”

Instead of becoming angry about the post, Foster took his Twitter avatar and made an excerpt from Shaughnessy’s post his new avatar, perhaps sending a message of pride for his team and himself. The following excerpt from Shaughnessy’s post is now Arian Foster’s avatar:
In their previous match-up, the Texans met the Patriots in Week 14 with the Patriots winning against Houston, 42-14.
Now with second meeting between the two teams being on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. EST, a trip to the AFC Championship Game is on the line. The Texans defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 19-13 on Saturday to set up the rematch with New England.
