    Ok, Slaton has averaged 13 carries a game with a little over 500 yards and he is worn down? I find that hard to believe.

    Brilliant move of the week....they rested him for the Colts?????????? wtf? Can't we just fire Kubiak now...please?

    Slaton is a rookie and this is not uncommon.

    For a running back with 13 carries a game? Did he room with Brown during camp or what?

    This guy is supposed to be a vital cog in the Texans future. I do not understand what is going on with this team.

    Crap like this and recent games makes me wonder how can anybody believe this team cares and is giving its all.

    Built in excuse by Kubiak to draw attention away from the fact that he is becoming the new Mike Martz of the NFL.

    Kubiak wishes he was Mike Martz. Martz went to the playoffs numerous occasions. Kubiak couldn't find the playoffs with a gps.

    He probably couldn't recover from the week before.....where he played every single snap.

    I wonder if we could rest Richard Smith because he is "worn down" also

    So what? Thirteen carries a game. I guess that is why I haven't seen his stats plastered all over the board recently.

    The Texans had to get another fullback a couple of weeks ago because Leach was tired, right? I know I read a quote by some player stating how the Texans end the seasons strong because of Kubiak's light workouts and Riley's conditioning program. Maybe it is just because they rest during the season.

    I was thinking of another part of the 'male' anatomy.

    Would not be appropriate to attach a pic though. Might be sensitive people reading here.

    You have a valid point there.

    I suppose they have demonstated an abundunce of one and a lack of the other.

    well as robin wiliams said

    God gave men both a penis and a brain, but unfortunately not enough blood supply to run both at the same time.

    so I don't know what the Texan's excuse is

    OK. I've thought about it. I feel bad for Slaton if he has some medical condition causing this, i.e. Cutler/diabetes.

    If not, I only have one repsonse. I'm just going to shake my head and laugh. This team just doesn't give a crap.

    He was never meant to be a full-time back. Especially as a rookie. You wanna blame someone, blame Green.

    Going from college to rookie to vet is a growing process.

    Not disagreeing with you but I wonder if this rookie wall issue is valid in this situation.
