Default Steve Slaton- RB Savior

Well I think we're all excited and thrilled about how well Slaton is doing. Add to that, the fact that he looks to be much more than a 3rd down change of pace type of back, and looks like a viable starter for us. Thought I'd post some of his stats after 4 games played.

Steve Slaton:
57 Rushes for 285 yards and 3 Touchdowns, 0 fumbles
-14.25 carries per game with a 5.0 ypc average (long of 50 yds)
16 Receptions for 100 yards and 1 Touchdown, 0 fumbles
-4.0 catches per game with a 6.2 ypc average (long of 30 yds)

That's 18.25 touches, averaging 96.25 yards , a 1 TD per game.

Keep it up Slaton!!!

You can compare his stats to the other rookie RB's here:

Gotta love Slaton. Only rookie with 2 40+ yard runs. Also no fumbles!

Keep it up!

Yeah Slaton continues to impress. He just might be the only bright spot about this season thus far. I still think we need another back to carry the load with him, but he's playing well right now.

He's fourth in rookie receiving right now and third in rushing. I say he finished in top 3 for rookie rushing yards and top 2 in TDs.

He's exceeded my expectations so far.

I'll eat crow. I thought he was Reggie Bush Jr with a lower salary.

He's easily a better running back than Bush.

Default Re: Steve Slaton- RB Savior

I was excited about drafting Slaton after seeing some of his highlights. He looks like the kind of RB that Kubiak wants in his system, and we did not have to break the bank to get him.

Every time he runs I do expect to see him get loose and bust out a long TD run. It has been awhile since we had that kind of explosive RB, so it is a breath of fresh air this season.

The last time we had that kind of runner in Houston the football team had a different name and a different owner........even DD was not that explosive.


Anyways this thread needs to be changed from Steve Slaton- RB Savior to Steve Slaton- Team Savior, because he's pretty much the only reason why I'm going to be tunning in every Sunday....he's one of the few bright spots.

I would like to have a power back as a change of pace, but Slaton has brought the goods so far. I kept saying in pre season he is going to be our no 1 when its all said and done. I thought it might be mid season before that happened, but talent always rises to the top.

Default Re: Steve Slaton- RB Savior

Pretty easy to extrapolate those numbers. Assuming he were to stay on exactly the same path -

1140 rushing yds
400 receiving
1540 total yds

Not bad for a guy getting less than 15 carries a game on avg.

He has exceeded my expectations thus far. He is far more physical than I thought he was. For his size, he gives no quarter and can dish it out as well as take it. He also hasn't fumbled, and has looked solid hanging onto the rock. I hope Green can stay healthy, as we might have a really good tandem IF that happens.

Pinkett is a decent comparison, but isn't he faster than Pinkett?
