Or will his "dead legs" finally catch up to him? This week we have a road game against the 27th ranked GB run defense which has gone downhill since Nick Barnett was lost for the season. They might not be quite this bad however, it could be that teams have such a hard time passing against the 5th ranked pass D of GB that they elect to run it instead. Methinks Slaton does well, but you never know on the road with this team. Then we finish with the Tacks 12th ranked run D, Oakland 29th ranked, and Chicago's 6th ranked run D in the season finale. Will Slaton finish strong against this schedule? If he runs well we have a much better chance of winning. If he wins the rookie rushing title, that could mean the difference between 5-11 and 9-7.
