When the Texans drafted him I said it was a steal, and I hope it turns out that way. I'm hoping he'll be named the starter either by week 1 or shortly thereafter. I know I'd like to pick him up on a few of my ff teams...:)

There is a reason Slaton was ranked only behind McFadden going into last season.

He got the Clinton Portis treatment in the draft

I like Slaton, but if he startss against Pittsburgh with Lebeau and the zone blitz, Schuab wil be knocked out the game.

Texanmike02
08-22-2008, 10:43 PM
I want Taylor to start. He's more of a banger to me and there were at least 4 plays that I went back and rewinded to see who it was picking up the blitz, it was Taylor. He will keep schaub upright I think. Slaton looked good, don't get me wrong. Taylor is just a little better prepared in the pass protection it looks like but Slaton may just be the answer to our question.

So here's my starting RB Line up:


Steve "1st Team" Slaton
Darius Walker
Chris Taylor (RB/FB)
Chris Brown (Just because he's younger than Green and knows the ZBS)

Bu Bye Ahman Green!!!!!!


Walker played like he was 15 lbs. heavier than last year. He ran hard for a little guy.

I thought Walker played well last yearbut I wasn't high on him last year, but I think he earned a spot compared to Brown and Green.

The thingaboutSlatton that impressed me was that he seems to understand the scheme. He was patient and quick once the holes opened up. If he isn't our week 1 starter than we're in trouble. Give Slatten the ball!

Wolf
08-23-2008, 01:00 AM
I will honestly say when I saw him run he looked better than someone that was trying to run the ball last week against us and with out all the "once in a generation" hype

but I won't mention the name

also on Slaton... anyone that has watched him, how does he look out of the backfield catching passes.. I know practice is different but wondering still because i don't recall the Texans using him yet like that

Yeah, it's hard not to notice that. He wraps it up pretty good. He put a nice little stiff arm on someone too. I'd be confident w/ Stalon, Taylor & Walker. Attorneys at Law.

If we can land Duckett after he gets cut he and Slaton could be a deadly combo.

Mr teX
08-23-2008, 11:04 AM
Slaton appears to be our guy for the future, but he doesn't necessarily have to start..... at least not yet anyway. Taylor serves his purpose as the banger to wear the defense down but he's no game breaker like SS. Our biggest run plays were by SS against 1st teamers. Walker deserves a spot on the roster as a kevin faulk type just b/c he's done nothing but what kubes & company have asked him to do & has looked good doing it too. Split the carries between those 3 with SS & Taylor getting the bulk.

At this point i'd be ok if Green & brown were cut & we rolled with the young guys. If you count shipp, I think those 4 young RB's are enough to get the job done.

I hadn't watched the whole game yet, but it looks like Chris Taylor had just as good a game. From what little bit I did watch, From the Play-by-Play, and if an earlier poster is correct, and Taylor did a fine job picking up the Blitz.... I don't see Slayton starting.

an interesting observation.....
looks like they threw Slaton the ball once, and only once.
looks like they threw it to Taylor once, and only once.
looks like they threw Walker the ball twice

Isn't our RBs supposed to be a part of our passing game?? WCO and all... I would have thought the coaches would have liked to see a little more of that.

Taylor longest run of the night.....7 yds against the 1st team.
Slaton longest run of the night....20 yds against the 1st team & i believe he had 2 of those. He's also the only RB of ours to break 6-10 yarders at a pretty good clip throughout the preseason.

Slaton's average for this game would also be higher if Studdard hadn't gotten him blown up twice. This week & last shows that Slaton should be at minimum splitting carries with Taylor. He's forcing his way into the lineup b/c no one else has shown anything else. i believe this excuse of him not being able to pick up on the pass protection is way overblown b/c he somewhat knows the system from WVU. Plus, Kubes is kidding himself if he thinks that Taylor isn't gonna slip up & get Schaub decleated. Aside from all that the kid can just flat out run........end of story.

Already there's not too much doubt that Slaton is the best pure runner of our
backs, but especially in the NFL there's other considerations for your starting
Tailback. But this is another very good value pick Rick Smith has made in the NFL
Draft.

I wouldn't mind that, since our first four games is against some of the best/nastiest defenses in the NFL. I rather let Taylor get pounded in those games, and keep our one and only bright spot at RB alive in those coming weeks.

08-23-2008, 11:56 AM
Eh, I'm learning more and more to appreciate a two back system.

I'm honestly ok with a Taylor/Slaton combo given the fact that Green will never be healthy for more than five snaps, and Brown is a hack - and our defense is obviously gonna stink so might as well try some unproven backs.

Gotta keep Leach as a lead blocker.

Though we didn't see him play, I think Schipp is a good goal line back should we need a goal line back, so that should be our four RB's -

Taylor/Slaton/Leach/Schipp.

With any luck Darius Walker can clear waivers and come back to the PS.

That alone should have earned him the job. It certainly put to rest that b.s. about Slaton being too small to be an effective RB.

You know what? You nailed it.

People are scared of Roy Williams, except a rookie named Steve Slaton.

When I saw him throw that stiff arm, with reckless abandon, as if he was saying "I don't care who you are," that's when I knew we had a starter.

It was instinctual by Slaton, he didn't care that it was Roy Williams. Most other guys would have just ran out of bounds.

I don't care who starts frankly and I'm happy with both backs. That being said, I'd rather have a back averaging 4.3 yds per carry with a long of 7 than a back averaging the same with a long of 20. Also, in regards to Taylor, he has converted multiple 3rd downs the past two weeks, including a third and 3 last night and a 3rd and 6 the week before. Those are important things. Besides, neither of these two are going to get 300 carries over the course of the season, so who cares which guy gets the first carry.

2-10-HOU 43 (12:44) 20-S.Slaton right guard to HOU 44 for 1 yard (56-L.Woodley, 91-Aa.Smith). PENALTY on PIT-51-J.Farrior, Defensive Offside, 5 yards, enforced at HOU 43 - No Play.
2-5-HOU 48 (12:19) 20-S.Slaton up the middle to HOU 50 for 2 yards (50-L.Foote; 92-J.Harrison).
3-3-HOU 50 (11:36) 8-M.Schaub pass short left to 89-D.Anderson to PIT 48 for 2 yards (26-D.Townsend).
4-1-PIT 48 (10:50) 8-M.Schaub up the middle to PIT 48 for no gain (99-B.Keisel, 98-C.Hampton). Houston challenged the first down ruling, and the play was Upheld. (Timeout #1 at 10:32.)

You guys are being nice. The depth chart clearly states that not only is Slaton not the first string, but the third string RB behind Taylor.

Below is the Texans' unofficial depth chart. Click here for the interactive depth chart. Last update: Sept. 4, 2008.

Offense
POS First String Second String Third String Fourth String Fifth String
WR Andre Johnson André Davis
LT Duane Brown Ephraim Salaam
LG Chester Pitts Kasey Studdard
C Chris Myers Chris White Mike Brisiel
RG Mike Brisiel Chris White
RT Eric Winston Rashad Butler
TE Owen Daniels Mark Bruener Joel Dreessen
WR Kevin Walter Jacoby Jones David Anderson
QB Matt Schaub Sage Rosenfels
RB Ahman Green Chris Taylor Steve Slaton
FB Vonta Leach Chris Taylor

And while yes Slaton may have gotten the first run of the game Green was still the back on the field for the first snap.

SWT you should be proud you are about to eat your hat, you can now proudly say that you crap Battle Red, Liberty White, and Steel Blue.

Besides, a bet is a bet. This is no different than losing a card game.

Below is the Texans' unofficial depth chart. Click here for the interactive depth chart. Last update: Sept. 4, 2008.

Offense
POS First String Second String Third String Fourth String Fifth String
WR Andre Johnson André Davis
LT Duane Brown Ephraim Salaam
LG Chester Pitts Kasey Studdard
C Chris Myers Chris White Mike Brisiel
RG Mike Brisiel Chris White
RT Eric Winston Rashad Butler
TE Owen Daniels Mark Bruener Joel Dreessen
WR Kevin Walter Jacoby Jones David Anderson
QB Matt Schaub Sage Rosenfels
RB Ahman Green Chris Taylor Steve Slaton
FB Vonta Leach Chris Taylor

And while yes Slaton may have gotten the first run of the game Green was still the back on the field for the first snap.

SWT you should be proud you are about to eat your hat, you can now proudly say that you crap Battle Red, Liberty White, and Steel Blue.

Besides, a bet is a bet. This is no different than losing a card game.

I would suggest that you would be excused from eating the bill but you have to eat the sweat ring.

can we make this a poll? im willing to let the message board be the jury

Well, Slaton technically got the first carry, but Ahman Green was targeted by a pass prior to that. So the RB was offensively involved before Slaton was. EAT THE HAT!!!!!















OK, serious about the play sequence, but eating a hat is probably going to be a bad thing. I'd advise against it :)

Honestly...what is the most vile, disgusting food (tripe) you would never eat...even if paid?

Worthy replacement IMO.

Can't get away with eating food, no matter how disgusting. Its got to be something weird, like roaches. Or the hat. May want to cook the hat first, to get it softened up

i was planning on cutting the hat up into strips, dipping in sauce. agreed, food wouldn't substitute.

the only thing that makes me hesitate is that frankly i really love my texans hat. my dad bought it for me game 1, season 1, and i've worn it every day since. i might buy another hat for eating.

I am not trying to be a butt, however, a bet is a bet.

Just like Steve McQueen's character in Alfred Hitchcock's "A man from the South" , if you don't want to lose your little finger, than you shouldn't bet your little finger.

If you don't want to eat your hat, you shouldn't bet your hat.

I think this is a life lesson that our young gambler needs to experience and to keep this event in mind the next time a bet is placed.

Never bet something that your not willing to lose.

Thats just my opinion.

Besides, he's eating cotton. He will be alright.

“I think Chris has one start in this league and if Ahman doesn’t play, Slaton is fixing to tie him,” Kubiak said. “They are both young players; they are both going to play. It’s not like one of them is going to take all of the load, so I’m counting on both of them.”

Too bad week 2 isn't what you said. So, when are you going to eat your hat again?

I want to let him off.

If he does do it though, let him eat a different hat, forcing someone to destroy something so important (like their first Texans hat) is against religious football.

Agreed. I still wear my ugly first hat. The bill doesn't even keep shape anymore (if I try to bend it it'll just readjust itself, lol), and it even has a few bite marks from when my puppy was teething. I love that hat.

If you buy another hat, make sure it's nice and smooth because the old hats were kind of rough. :X

Well first we half to define what "his" is.

If he bought a Texan hat it would become his. The specific "his" hat was not specified. Only that it be his and a Texan hat.

Now saying that, he should be required to run 5 miles in the humid heat wearing the hat that he will be eating to make sure he gets a hat with a little extra flavor.

SWT, you're overthinking this.

Just get one of those taco salad bowls (the kind you eat)...stencil the Texans' logo onto it with some hot sauce...and eat it.

But before you eat it, you could slap it onto your head for a second, and say "this is my Texans hat."

BAM! It's done. It was a hat; a Texans hat. Now you can eat it.

I'm a genius...

My ugly first hat (first pro-fit hat too) got misplaced in the move from our condo to our house and ended up all rotted in the back. I still don't have a replacement and the Houston Oilers helmet I got for Christmas doesn't fit.

Maybe you could eat an Ahman Green jersey instead. I'll send you one for $20. Thats probably cheaper than a hat anyway
