Sirius Business: Texans, Giants, Dolphins Notes

Good afternoon everyone. I’m going to continue my recent series of posts wrapping up our weekend interviews on Sirius XM Fantasy Football, and we have a lot of good stuff to blog about today. Matt Camp and I talked shop with three of the best beat writers in the business:

John McClain covers the Texans for the Houston Chronicle (@McClain_on_NFL on Twitter):

The Texans want to be more committed to the run game in 2010, considering their high-powered offense in 2009 finished just 30th in running the football. McClain mentioned that it’s hard for the Texans to gain consistency in that respect because their offensive coordinators are often scooped up for other jobs, but new coordinator Rick Dennison is a believer in Gary Kubiak’s system. This should help the RBs stay on the same page (or hopefully turn to the next one) from last season.

McClain believes Steve Slaton, if healthy (he had neck surgery this off-season), will be the starting RB and main ballcarrier in

Steve Slaton had a disappointing 2009, but he looks good this off-season

It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]

  • Week 14 storylines December 6, 2014
    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups. Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games? Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]
