    He should. It sounds like he is playing well. So much for the comparisons to Reggie Bush

    I like the way he protected the ball on his long burst, just as he was being hit.

    When the Texans drafted him I said it was a steal, and I hope it turns out that way. I'm hoping he'll be named the starter either by week 1 or shortly thereafter. I know I'd like to pick him up on a few of my ff teams...:)

    He's the only one so far this preseason showing any spunk.

    He's by far the best RB on the roster. He needs to start now

    Can we get a mod to sticky this thread? I wouldn't want to forget and miss the show if Slaton doesn't get the start against Pittsburgh. :howdy:

    There is a reason Slaton was ranked only behind McFadden going into last season.

    He got the Clinton Portis treatment in the draft

    the run to the right when Slaton stiff armed Roy "Horsecollar" Williams and put his helmet into Adam "make it rain" Jones was uber sweet.

    Chris Taylor and the O-line looking fairly impressive on this drive.

    I saw some first stringers in there still but Slaton has impressed the most by far.
