Steve Slaton and the Texans Offense


Steve Slaton was far from terrific during the Texans 2009 campaign. Much has been said about his fumbling issues and low YPC. These are valid arguments, especially the fumbles. Compared to the other running backs on the team, I must wonder whether or not defenses were keying on Slaton.

There is no denying that he is an explosive player who warrants some defensive thought on every down. Because he is a speed RB, it seems wise to spread out the DL and LBs and move safeties up to defend against him.

But was the Texans passing attack more effective when Slaton was on the field? This is a question I really wish I had an answer to.
