    104 yards and a touchdown in one half of play. The guy looks great.

    He's looked great against a very good defense .... Much better between the tackles than I expected on draft day and his blitz pick ups are getting better.

    C.Brown hasnt looked bad either.

    If Green gets another carry this season , it better be because of an injury .... :voodoo:

    Ahman is done.

    You go with the guy thats hot.

    Slaton knows what he's doing. When he lowered the shoulder on Griffin on the goalline......priceless!

    I felt he should've been slated as the starter the day we drafted him. Kinda like Walker too. Dont know why Kubes doesnt.

    no it was 2nd and goal at the 1 and they passed twice. And then they have it to him at the 2 yard line and 4th and goal.

    Trust me, I wanted them to run it too. I'm just saying... they did run it twice on those 4 plays.

    Slaton played really well today. I think he made a lot of plays happen that would otherwise never have materialized. With that said, he's gotta be utilized better. 2nd and goal on the 1 and you throw two passes? Punch it in with the rookie.

    I think this game shoulda been a lot closer. You have a good kicker in Brown who'll get you points on the board. We coulda been one score down for the last drives if we kicked field goals.

    Slaton was very impressive today. And how about that play where he took it
    up the middle for the TD and literally ran over the Titan defender. He seems to be a pretty dank hard-nosed little runner for a back I though was supposed to have durability issues.

    Slaton was awesome. I love how he kept those feet churning. That's what I used to love about Domanick Davis, he was great at keeping those feet going and picking up the extra yard or so.
