..........Will he cut into Arian Fosters Productivity?
good maybe now he can earn some of the money he's getting paid. But i'm not worried about him, we have arian foster and after last season RB is my last worry. I did like the way Ward ran the ball though.
Just heard MCLAME on 610 say that he expects Ward to go and Slaton to compete with Tate for 2nd and 3rd RB. With Ward's show last year, I find it hard to believe that Staton has the "inside track."
I don't know how it finished, but Ward actually had a higher AYPC than Foster for much of the year. Ward may be a starter somewhere else soon though.
I would try to bring Ward back if I could. Don't think it'll happen, since he would cost actual money, but a guy can wish.
Yeah, it would be par for the course if the Texans let Ward walk and kept Slaton.
We could finally have three capable RBs (Foster, Ward, and Tate) providing crazy depth at a position (RB) that you can't afford to be weak at in the NFL. It would be just like the Texans to get stoopid and somehow lose Ward by thinking they got Foster and Tate now. Oh, and the mighty Steve Slaton who everybody knows is going to emerge victorious in 2011. Barf.
At worst, you retain Ward and use him as trade bait throughout the camp and first part of reg season. Can the Texans do it? Can they actually use a very tradeable commodity, for once in their lives, and get something more than a 4th rounder? I doubt it.
I wouldn't give you a hot six pack of Buckhorn for Slaton . I'd put Bill back there , after tailgating , before I'd play Slaton .
Yeah, Slaton isn't worth a used roll of TP.
LOL. Slaton is going to make the team because Kubiak discovered him, played him, and is hell bent on proving that once Gary Kubiak places his faith in you then you're in the family all the way. It's a pride thing.
We even had a ridiculous FG kicker competition because Kubiak had to stage a showdown instead of cutting Kris Brown outright.
Turns his head away from important plays.
It's plausible McNair ordered him to fire Frank Bush and others.
The "leader" of this team is wormy and incapable of doing whatever it takes...until he's forced to, and even THEN he finds ways to only go to a certain limit such as the fake field goal competition and using Slaton on kickoff returns for a whole season. Wormy.
After cutting Wilison, Davis, and the others I thought they were finnally seeing the light but some one must have a man crush on Slaton.
In my Madden-10 I have no problem with Slaton being a Seahawk (seriously, how could they screw up rosters... anyone proofreading?)
One rookine year followed by TWO horrible years.. It's time to let this one slip back into the water, 'nothing to see here'...
Now why would you want to cut Ward? 2 out of the 6 games we won would've been losses if not for him - Oakland, and KC!
Wow, there is literally no topic that you won't turn into bashing Kubiak or the FO, is there?
Cut Ward and keep Slaton? Why? For his great KR potential? This makes me ill.
you guys are forgetting about slatons KR duties as a reason for keeping him
Ward won't be cut... he signed a 1 year deal. He's a FA.
I remember it, it's definitely NOT a reason to keep him IMO.
There will be 5 or 6 RBs on the 80 man roster. McClain isn't breaking any news: Foster, Tate, Slaton will be three of those... Ward won't be since he is a free agent. The Texans will add a couple other guys but won't re-sign Ward (who'll be looking for a significant payday)... Ward is on the other side of 30.
It's not our choice. Ward had a 1 year deal and he's a free agent. I'm sure the Texans FO would love to get him back but Ward's probably going to have a shot at competing for a starting job somewhere else. Here, he's got Foster ahead of him and Tate breathing down his neck.
Better money and more PT? Ward's gone.
