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.

The opinion of people who say such things as "too small", without considering other traits, should be dismissed out of hand. DeMeco slipped to us in the second because he was considered "too small".

And then Leach pancaked Roy just as Roy was regaining his balance off the stiff arm...LOL.

Muy Muy Magnifico.

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.

Now that I think about it, you don't really have to start him. Marion Barber didn't start at all last year, and look what he did.

hmm maybe we should call kubiak and tell him not to start slaton for your benefit. you'll probably need the practice since it looks like you'll be doing it again within a yr or 2.

this is true... i think slaton deserves most of the touches though. that's for sure. he's easily the most explosive back we have... anyone else is expendable/replaceable.
