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
