    This does concern me, but im refilling my koolaid as i type :D Maybe it was just my eyes failing, but it always seemed like Slater would only run straight ahead. A simple cut here, and there, and i think he couldve been long gone with his speed. Bad vision perhaps? Oh well, he was a rookie. We'll see what he can do this preseason ;)

    BB and O'Brien obviously thought they could get someone to replace Hobbs - my first choice is Maroney with Slater as his lead blocker. People who got down on Slater last season missed what he was doing as Hobbs' lead man and as a Gunner/Outside containment on the coverage units, the kid had a pretty good year. I think it's also worth noting that on his Kick Returns someone else got to be his lead blocker - it makes a difference.

    im not real worried at all with our special teams, we have too many versatile athletes who are passionate and hunger to fret bout
