Hope all is well in Texan-Land.
We're still super pissed about losing to you guys a couple weeks ago, but I thought i'd stop by to ask what you think of the Current Steve Slaton. I remember him as the talented rookie who posted some big numbers for Houston back in 2008. Since then he's been quiet, and ultimately was cut from your roster. In my research, I heard that he "had neck surgery in 2009 and hasn't been the same player since".
So my question to BRB is this: what have you seen of Slaton since his surgery? Is there truly a significant dropoff in explosiveness or has he just lacked the opportunity since Arian Foster came on the scene? I feel like the Dolphins may have picked up a gem because of Houston's sudden wealth of runningback talent. Ben Tate looks to be the real deal. All things considered, a few starting caliber runningbacks may have been cut from Houston under the same circumstances.
What are your thoughts, Houston?
