Do you thin that Parker will have a 1,000 season?

if he stays healthy, absolutely

is only 75 yards per game .. i think He can do that

I'm not going to say absolutely because I don't think I'd like the taste of crow, so I'll just say pro'lly (if he stays healthy throughout the season). :cool:

If Willie can get several games where he breaks a few long runs that gets him 40-60yds and grinds out the rest of the yardage to get him some hundred yard games then I think it's very well possible.

Should he be held in check and forced to get tough yardage then the answer is an easy NO!

With Ben hurt, we might be relying on the running game for the first few games.

actually it is only 63 yards a game... If Parker cant or doesnt at least get that .. we wont be in the playoffs.

Absolutely. I am banking (hoping) and touting (praying) Willie Parker as doing great things this year.

I'll agree with that, I'm expecting a few big breaks throughout the season too.

parker, in my opinion, is hit or miss this season ... last year he was probably the most inconsistent running back in the NFL ... his 1200 yards and 4.7 per carry were probably the most misleading stats. i was on the steelers.com message board and in a little arguement with someone about this topic and to finally shut the people up, I went into the game logs and wrote down every run he had on every down ... and yes, it took forever ... but the general consensus of it was that although he did have good end of year numbers ... that was not a reflection at all on his actual performances ... i just think that everyone got on his bandwaggon after the tennessee and houston game and then just rode with it
