PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Steelers OL Ramon Foster joined “The Fan Morning Show” for his regular weekly spot Tuesday, and talked about the team as they prepare to face the Browns.
In a thrilling win against Oakland, Antonio Brown was absolutely stellar, putting up a team record 284 yards on 17 catches. It was a performance that Foster says was paired with a newfound electricity from Brown in between the whistles.
“He had a little fire about him, man,” Foster said. “He was talking to the group like, we’ve got to get this win, we’ve got it going…It was good to see him cheering on the whole offense in the way that he wanted to get a win, and it was refreshing to see that out of him. I didn’t know that he was having a day. I’m not sure he knew that he was having the day that he was having, but he showed a different side, and I enjoyed it, especially when Ben went out, and he stepped up in the huddle and was talking. That was great from Antonio.”
Leading up to last Sunday’s game, Foster had a talk with his fellow offensive lineman, saying that this offense is still capable of great things because it has guys like Brown, even if it’s missing Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell, and Maurkice Pouncey.
“We had a talk before the game – I did with the o-line, about [how] we still have a lot of guys that can go start on other teams, and we’re still a really good team,” Foster said. “We have some very talented guys on our team, and we’re good enough to win out, and still make it to San Francisco, in my honest opinion.”
Foster also had some nice things to say about Steelers rookie Jesse James, after the tight end got his first touchdown catch in his NFL debut against Oakland.
“I love the kid…I was very happy for him,” Foster said. “I always thought he was a young Heath Miller – until he got his touchdown and he spread his arms out. I was like, okay, you might have a little swag about him.”
