He's gonna have a hell of a season this year, I can feel it. Mendy and Parker are primed to be one of the best 1-2 RB combos in the NFL.

I love his attitude and it's a great example for the new guys (and some of the old ones, too). Willie seems like a real humble and sweet guy. Or should that be sweeeed guy?

That's the way, Willie! If he and Mendy both stay healthy, I have a good feeling about our RB situation for this year.

He really can't make demands...yet. They have a replacement for him if he plays horrible or has another injury plagued year.

If you look at the NFL now all teams really need 2 quality RB's! Mendy is a plus for Parker! At the rate Parker was going his body would only have lasted another year or so before injuries did him in. Parker should understand that another good RB only prolongs his career and helps improve his ability to be a top running back for at least 3 to 4 more years.

In the sports industry no matter how great you are, age will eventually take is toll on you and demand that the team start looking for the next young wonder.

If we can just move away from the featured back and have them both run the ball...

and have our O line step up this year, I think there will be no stopping us.

Parker is a real professional and I love how he plays. I still think its a business and he probably isnt resigned........but would like to see him in B&G longer.

I don't know, I keep going back and forth on it. If he does have a very good year, I see them resigning him. However, He'll have to take a discount to stay around.

Then again, with Ward's contract up, there may be enough money, even with the other signings we need to pull off.
