Default Kubiak: Slaton "worn down"

Quote:
Slaton worn down: Rookie running back Steve Slaton had just four carries for 7 yards. He did break away for a 58-yard touchdown reception that was called back for a holding penalty on tight end Owen Daniels. Regardless, Slaton didn’t see much time on the field, and that’s because carrying the load has started to take its toll on him.

“He was really worn down, to be honest with you,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “He struggled last week in practice - just sharpness, speed, those types of things. He didn’t miss any time or anything, but we just felt like we were going to do everything we could to split those reps up even more so - if anything, a little less for Steve than Ahman (Green) or the other young man in (Ryan) Moats.”
Ok, Slaton has averaged 13 carries a game with a little over 500 yards and he is worn down? I find that hard to believe.

Quote:
Kubiak hopes that resting Slaton against Baltimore will make him more productive going into Sunday’s game at Indy.
Brilliant move of the week....they rested him for the Colts?????????? wtf? Can't we just fire Kubiak now...please?

Slaton is a rookie and this is not uncommon.

For a running back with 13 carries a game? Did he room with Brown during camp or what?

This guy is supposed to be a vital cog in the Texans future. I do not understand what is going on with this team.

Crap like this and recent games makes me wonder how can anybody believe this team cares and is giving its all.

Built in excuse by Kubiak to draw attention away from the fact that he is becoming the new Mike Martz of the NFL.

Kubiak wishes he was Mike Martz. Martz went to the playoffs numerous occasions. Kubiak couldn't find the playoffs with a gps.

So what? Thirteen carries a game. I guess that is why I haven't seen his stats plastered all over the board recently.

The Texans had to get another fullback a couple of weeks ago because Leach was tired, right? I know I read a quote by some player stating how the Texans end the seasons strong because of Kubiak's light workouts and Riley's conditioning program. Maybe it is just because they rest during the season.

God gave men both a penis and a brain, but unfortunately not enough blood supply to run both at the same time.

OK. I've thought about it. I feel bad for Slaton if he has some medical condition causing this, i.e. Cutler/diabetes.

If not, I only have one repsonse. I'm just going to shake my head and laugh. This team just doesn't give a crap.

He was never meant to be a full-time back. Especially as a rookie. You wanna blame someone, blame Green.

Going from college to rookie to vet is a growing process.

Not disagreeing with you but I wonder if this rookie wall issue is valid in this situation.
