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.

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.

I agree... but remember Slaton lost a bunch on those times he got STUFFED on missed blocks by Studdard. His average would have been higher without those.

Green used to be one of the top backs in league.

Man I hope Chris Brown starts against the Steelers, only for the first play though, so I can have some entertainment. Slaton goes for 120 and we still get the hat eating.

Don't forget to let us know where to watch that.
