4 yards per carry. I would be happy with that.

I won't throw out stats cuz I really have no clue how many touches he might get.

1200+ combined yards, 7-8 TD's and I'm happy.

One thing that might not be in the stat sheet is picking up the blitz and blocking. That will be a lot to do with his success.

Just move dem chains baby! That's all I want to see out of him. A couple of stiff arms wrestling Bob Sanders to the ground would be nice too.

Thumbs up Re: Steve Slaton.. What are you expecting??

Depends on the amount of time he gets. Barring Injuries

Best Case: 1100 yards rushing, 4.2 avg, 8 TD
300 yards receiving, 3 TD

Worst Case: 500 yards rushing, 3.5 avg, 3 TD
190 receiving yards, 1 TD

That's between 8 and 16 carries per game.

I think that's doable.

We still don't know who will be the starter. My bet is that Slayton and Taylor will split time at the position. Green and Brown are cut.

Under that scenario, I look for Slayton to have 800+ yards on the ground (4.2+ YPC), and 400 yards receiving. I look for the Texans will have ~1900 yards rushing.

Default Re: Steve Slaton.. What are you expecting??

1000 yards and 6-8 TDs would be cool with me. A Domanick Davis/Williams type first season would be something I could deal with as well.

Slaton will share time with someone, who that is we don't know yet. But by the end of the season, I suspect he'll have close to or at 1000 combined yards and a handfull of TDs. I could list about a thousand "Ifs" for my remark, but I'm sure yall already know them. LOL

ten wins.
if Slaton gets 1500 yds 20 TDs and gets ORotY and we go 5-11, it would still suck.

if Slaton gets 600 yds, 6-7 TDs and we finish 10-6 because of it. he was a success.

Default Re: Steve Slaton.. What are you expecting??

I love the pick of Slaton but anything over 750 combined yards is a success to me. He aint going to get many carries in the red zone but seems a lovely option a swing passes and bubble screens.

Give him a couple of years before any expectations.

Default Re: Steve Slaton.. What are you expecting??

I got this funny feeling that following the 2008 season people are going to be talking about Slaton like they talked about Domanick Davis. People are going to be saying that we have our "triplets" in Schaub-Johnson-Slaton just like they did before when DD emerged.

Slaton, if he gets the lions share of the touches is going to be a 1300 yard back. I can't call it a prediction it's just a hunch (and at this point in the season things change weekly) but I think right now that Chris Brown won't make the team and that Ahman Green won't be playing by week 6. Slaton and Taylor are our real backs right now and the first one of them to "get it" and start producing every down is going to be "the next big thing" around here.

If that happens then watch them draft a LB or DE next year in the first round. If it doesn't then RB has as much of a chance as either of those (BPA kind of thing) and anyone planning on telling me that Kubiak/Smith won't take a RB early just save your time. Kubiak tried to trade back up in the first round in 2006 to get DeAngelo Williams but failed. Since then he's always had a bigger need someplace else but he'll do it if he thinks he needs to. If we end the season as pitiful in the backfield as we are now (meaning nobody stepped up) then he'll do it in 2009.

AFAIK, slaton was benched for fumbling at WV. so i'm going on that.

also, beyond domanick davis's season or two, the texans running game has never given me reason to be optimistic.

He was also injured and carried with his opposite arm because of it...

If Slaton does something like 1150 yards rushing with 8 TDs, and 350 yards receiving with 4 TDs, that would be the best.

At worst, I hope he gets around 800 rushing with 4 TDs, and 300 receiving with 2 TDs.
