Default Steve Slaton

I'm not Mr. Sunshine, but I definitely must say Mr. Slaton looked fresh and very very good. Thoughts?

I wonder if he'll get 10 carries next week?

He looked very good today.

If on only 14 attempts for 156 yards and a TD is "decent" I want to see what you think is spectacular.

The running game was so beautiful today, too bad the Colts controlled the time of possession or we could have wracked up some serious records.

Good game for Slaton. He's got 701 yards on 138 carries and 6 TDs. Remember that 71 yard TD run is the longest TD run in Texans history. He also has 32 receptions for 198 yards and a TD catch this season.

This guy has proven to be the steal of our draft, and perhaps the entire draft. He should get serious consideration for offensive rookie of the year if he keeps this level of play up.

He wont. He is not even the most impressive looking back. That goes to the Tacks Johnson.

I believe ROY will be Atlanta QB Matt Ryan or Balti QB Joe Flaco.

I dunno, I think Slaton is just as impressive as Johnson.

QBs always get the awards. I suppose Matt Ryan deserves some love.

Slaton won't win OROY missing large parts of games to stay fresh.

How does that work exactly? If the running game was "so beautiful" then how did the Colts manage to control the TOP?

It seems to me like something doesn't add up....

Oh yeah, we don't have a defense!

Numbers wise, Johnson's the only rookie running back ahead of Slaton. Slaton's a first round talent we got in the third.

I don't buy the "dead legs" bullship....Slaton had a huge run last week when he was so disabled that Kubiak had to "save" him for the Colts. It's just a copout for abandoning the running game the last couple of games as far as I'm concerned. Today the Texans did the same exact thing till drive 3 and then Kubiak finally snapped that you have to actually run the ball to be successful running the ball.

I'm starting to think that Kubiak is maybe not up to the mental side of being an NFL head coach (and not going to get there). I think that in football, at each level of the game where coaching staffs are concerned you have guys who can coach and guys who still need a little coaching themselves.

I'm afraid Gary Kubiak falls into the latter category. He's not head coach material no matter how much we want to believe he is.

Kubiak promoted to Head Coach is what the peter principle is all about.

He doesn't seem to be able to get a handle on this playcalling thing. He goes into panic mode, and hands the ball to interception prone QBs as if he was still dealing with Elway. He loses all ability to think rationally. I thought he would get better as the years went by - but he hasn't. Learning from mistakes isn't one of Kubiak's strong suits.

He has taken on the appearance of a man who looked great because he coached players who were going to be great regardless hasn't he? He runs crap out there like he's got a miracle maker under center who can make it work and I'm thinking that he doesn't understand why it isn't just clicking along like it always did before.

He may just resign on us if this year gets bad enough or McNair might pull the plug on him if he spends too many more weeks looking like he can't figure it out.
