Best 2nd RB? I dont know how you compare that. Its how the backs compliment eachother and what does the 2nd do that the 1st dosent. Slaton the best 2nd RB? Slaton if he can do what he did his rookie year, he's the 2nd best RB in the AFC South behind Chris Johnson.
I dont care who our 2nd is, as long as our 1st gets it done.

If healthy, I wouldn't be surprised if Slaton is the Texans best number one back. He's proven himself once; if last year's failure was based on health he could bounce back strong.

Barring no injury I think Stevie will have a great season.

Woah woah woah!!! MJD might have something to say about that. In fact if I could have any RB in the NFL, it would probably be AD at 1 and MJD at 2. CJ would probably be 3.

Default Re: Is Steve Slaton The Best Second RB?

I hesitate to label our RBs and maybe will not even after season begins. The back with the most attempts may not be the "starter". I can see Slaton getting the start but Tate getting more carries. Slaton should see more passes and end arounds than ever before. If Foster does what I expect, I hope to lose track on who gets how many attempts during the game as I will be screaming my lungs out "Did you see that!" rather than moaning "Did I just see that?"

I love me some Steve Slaton but neck surgery has a way of invoking me spidey sense. It's tingling so much that it hurts.

This scenario actually gives me hope. I see a Saints style approach to running the ball in Houston this season

Unlike the RBBC's of past, this corps actually has some potential legitimacy.

As I said on another thread, I think Wade Smith at LG will be biggest offensive change. When the final group of RBs is known, the overall O should be great. If OD can stay healthy and he will be playing for multi year deal and then my prediction of Jacoby Jones having a very good year, wow!

2nd, 1st, 3rd, I don't care. As long as our running game is much more productive than last season I'll be good. I think between Foster, Tate and Slaton we should be alright at the RB position. I'm more concerned with how the Oline shapes up this season. Having your own linemen pushed back into you doesn't fair well for any RB, much less Slaton.

IMHO, I think having Jeremiah Johnson, Chris Henry, and Ryan Moats helps out from a depth perspective. If anything should happen to the first three, I think we'll still be good at the RB position.

But how many will we be able to bring to camp? Or make the roster? Having 2 kickers and 47 TE's will surely weaken a positions depth somewhere, no?

Anybody remember how many we carried last season? Too lazy to go look
