    Where is he? He's been productive any time he's touched the ball.

    I'm not very happy with Slaton right now. I know the blocking sucks, but he's still coughing up the ball.

    I can't believe I'm doing this much venting after a win.

    Ask the coach holding the Denny's menu.

    He probably cant tell you why Moats wasnt playing but im sure he could tell you every combination of Grand Slam you can have.

    I know it might come as an extreme shock to you, but pretty much every HC in the league carries a Denny's menu these days.

    :rolleyes:

    Moats is 3rd on the depth chart behind Slaton and Brown

    Brown was very effective running today and gives you better north-south running than Slaton

    Slaton had 2 TDs. Again. Fumbles or not, he's been our most explosive player these past few weeks. He has a nose for the end zone lately

    Im pretty sure Ryan Moats could've done the same as Slaton did. Slaton didn't do anything special, mabye some moves to aviod a tackle but they usually ended up in a loss or a fumble. After that last fumble I was sure Ryan was going to come in but he didnt. They should atleast bring him out to scare Slaton or something.

    Slayton has earned a new nickname: Steve "Two-Hands" Slayton.

    We'll call him that until he does it....when it is most needed. I sit in the endzone and have great view ofthe running game: On a pure kill the clock play, not-so-two-hands Slayton ran into a group of linebackers and had an almost fumble.

    Are you joking or serious? Because theres no way Moats is anywhere near as fast as Slaton, and most of Slatons big scoring plays this year have been purely due to good blocking + acceleration/speed.

    Riiight. Moats can fly 5 yards into the endzone after gaining the edge from
    one of the best LB groups in the league.

    You're out of your mind if you think that Moats is anywhere near the RB that Slaton is. Slaton is having a fumbling problem. A big one at that. We get it. It's a problem that certainly hasn't gotten fixed and is worth a few complaints. But as far as being a play maker it isn't even close. Slaton is the most dangerous player on this team when he's in the open field. It's not his fault that this team doesn't run block well either. He's making the plays that this team needs. He's just coughing up the ball a lot. That obviously has to stop. If anything though, Moats should be playing over Chris Brown.

    The running game has to pick up soon I was going to start a new thread but I'll post my thoughts here. Good teams in the NFL are one dimensional on both sides of the football but great teams are two having both a run and a passing game together. The Texans in the second half were held to only THREE points and against a better team probably would have ended up with a loss but I still think they are a running attack away from becoming a elite team once they run better more often then we'll see less of the Texans being shutdown in the second half because the D won't know wether to defend the run or the pass. Right now in the second half they do not get much going with the pass or the run because teams know how poor they run without being stopped so they focuss just a wee bit more on the passing game. A running game is very important in this league it opens up everything else as you all know so I don't care who they use in the backfield but if they are going to take that next step running the football is the key either through better OL blocking or different play calling but something has to give sooner or later. If not, it will catch up and these close game will tun into losses in of wins I'm telling you all.

    Ryan Moats had one good game. I don't think he's the answer, but I wouldn't mind him in there instead of Brown. I don't like Brown at all really.

    ryan moats is on the bench where he belongs. Steve Slaton is repeatedly finding the endzone, which is what he does. The people calling for him to be benched are remarkably stupid.
