At the time of this post, L.T. is leading with 52%:

Now, not that Tomlinson's performance wasn't solid (when isn't it?), but he only had 103 yards compared to Willie's 223 -- and I've heard LaDainian himself say he'd rather have big yards over TDs.

(Apologies if this has already been posted and I missed it.)

Kermit,

As much as I love the steelers, and I did vote for parker.... but LT is going to win it this week because he broke the NFL TD rushing record. While Willie broke the Steelers all time yards record, not quite as big a record as all time NFL record.....

The NFL TD record is definitely much bigger than a Steelers team record, no question.

However, the way I see it is this: these are the FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Week.

L.T.'s accomplishment is accumulative of the season, while Willie's was just in this game.

You're likely correct that Tomlinson will win, but I'm still pulling heavily for Parker (for the stated reasons).

Agreed. Voted for Parker. We've changed the outcome of these things before, and we WILL do it again!

Wow not LT vs Willie Parker, again! Last time, Parker completely got robbed of the honors. I am a homer and everything, but LT deserves it this time...NFL touchdown record broken with 3 games left to play, and that's enough said. I'm still voting for Fast Willay Parkah though

1 for Parker...

and one for Favre...

A tough and good player...on a terribly undermanned team.


And yeah...they need to give Willie some credit...


LT will get player of the Year, etc. etc.

Willie Parker had two 200-yard games against Saints & Browns, and didn't win FedEx Ground twice. :mad: I already knew that Steelers fans and faithfuls are pissed off!!! :frown: Let's look at :upyours: LaDainian Tomlinson of Chargers, :upyours: he had two 100-yard games twice against Bengals & Broncos, and won FedEx Ground twice over Willie Parker. W T F!!! :wtf: This is a joke and an unfairness!!! Parker is an undrafted free agent picked up in 2004 and he has a SB ring, but LaDainian Tomlinson has none, otherwise maybe he got more votes from media darlings. :bs: This is totally BS!!! :blah:
