    Great read, I hadn't heard that story and I didn't get to watch that game either. Makes me like the guy all the more

    Another thing I like about Slaton is that he's not shy about blocking.
    He may miss here and there, but he certainly threw his body around.

    In the last Titans game for example, I thought he was the most effective blocker that can take Haynesworth one on one! :aggressive: [​IMG]

    (I think he took Haynie by surprise, LOL!)

    Yeah he's willing but not always able. I think everybody knows Schaub has to stay on his feet this year...

    Great find Wolf! SS is the man. I remember watching a West Virginia game the year before he entered the draft, and I was thinking this is one bad little dude. I was thinking he would definitely be a top 15 pick and there was no chance the Texans would get him. Then in the third round of last years draft when they announced that we had drafted him I was psyched! I called my brother to tell him, and before I could say anything he took the words out of my mouth. I cant wait to see what he does this year, hes gonna be special for a long time! :texflag:
