Default Steve Slaton Interview: Raising the Bar

Good video on HT.com:

http://www.houstontexans.com/tv/inde...68&play_clip=Y

Is it just mean or does he sound like he matured a lot last season, and seems very confident. And dude looks huge.......he's been hitting the gym hard.

I loved his answer on advice for the rookies "Make sure you protect the quarterback........a skill you need to get on the field". How many times have we heard Kubiak talk about this? It's permeated through the players. Something the rooks will have to grab on to.

This interview got me excited to see him play again. What a tremendous 3rd round pick!

Bonus item: He picks the Rockets to make it to the NBA finals.

I've liked him from day one. He's well spoken and level headed. I just watched a replay of the Cowboys "Hard Knocks" from last year... God I love being a Texans fan. So many honest, level headed team guys. You're absolutely right though, he looks bigger and very confident!

If he gets hurt we may be dead in the water. Here's hoping for a similar year from him.

I gotta admit this team is so much more fun to watch now that we have a play maker in the backfield in Slaton. Here's hoping we find somebody who can step up and give us a solid back up to spell him this year.

I'd be lying if I told someone that I wouldn't be holding my breath when his random drug test comes up. He's massive compared to 6 months ago.

I love me some Steve Slaton. I saw all the games last year but that was the first Steve Slaton highlight reel that I've seen since he's been a Texan. He's absolutely a playmaker. Watching him breaking tackles is a thing of beauty. I didn't realize just how many tackles he breaks off.

Wow!

Jeez, he looked 5'9" across as well in that interview. He didn't look much like little Stevie Slaton doing rookie interviews twelve months ago!..

Default Re: Steve Slaton Interview: Raising the Bar

Seems pretty clear where he has spent his off season. I hope his build doesn't wind up slowing him down or making him less sudden. IIRC, one of the downsides to pumping a lot of iron is some sort of lack of flexibility in the muscles and tendons that seems to lead to more injuries from physical contact. Crosses fingers and toes.

Great interview. He seems ready to roll, and looks like hes been keeping in shape. It was also nice to see him support the home team in the NBA Finals prediction!

In one year Steve Slaton became my favorite player in Texans' history. I am not saying he is the best we have ever had, but he is the first player in a Texans uniform that makes me take notice every time he touches the ball. Largely because something special could happen at any moment.

Yup, doesn't look roided at all, but he sure has been pushing a lot of iron around from the look of things. I wonder what he weighs now? Last I had hear it was 210. 210 or so in a guy 5'9" or so isn't actually a small guy, just short. Even last year he seemed to run with more power than you might have normally expected for a guy his size and now..... could be interesting.
