    I'm just wondering how will he be fantasy wise to MIA since he's going to be the same role as Bush.

    Can't you just picture it now . . . Slaton starting over Bush. Haha, now that would be hoot.

    It'll never happen though. They'll figure out soon enough why the Texans dumped him. Then, it's a one way ticket to Outoftheleagueville, USA.

    I've met Steve twice. He's a nice guy.

    Good luck to him. I hope he can stay healthy.

    If Slaton plays in MIA like he did his rookie year he'll be great. Sadly he's been M.I.A since that year. Best Wishes to him.

    Kubiak didn't try a single time this season to get Slaton the ball in space.
    Miami has switched to a spread offense, and Steve should be good
    there.

    That's not true.

    Just in this last game he got him the ball on a pitch and I think a quick screen.

    He didn't play him because he's black. That's why he left him to wither on the vine and gave the carries to his other RB's.

    Steve needs a change of pace, he's obviously in the dog house or lost his confidence. A change of scenery may be just what the doctor ordered, and Miami isn't realy that bad of a city :)

    Totally agree. Have you noticed the amount of white guys on the roster? Dex will agree with me. Kubiak is a racist sun-um *****!

    Tru dat. I've seen Kubiak leading a KKK rally by dressing up as an ice cream cone outside an Ice Cream Parlor. And what about all this B.S. about wearing 'liberty white' to Texans games? Whites are oppressive by nature and know nothing about liberty.

    He gave Casey a run play cause he's white. What a hater.

    i'd been hoping for a couple years now that he'd somehow end up in green bay, his running style and receiving just seem to me like a perfect fit for them. hopefully it works out in miami, atleast he's an upgrade over bush lol.
