Remember when we had the Blier/ Harris tandem, in the backfield. Man I would love to see Haynes and Parker, in the same role, and run the heck out of some good old fashion, traps and counter plays.
Haynes is also a back-up FB, so he can lead block, like Rocky did, and we all know what he can do, with the ball his hands(Recieving also).
This double rushing threat, I believe, would work. Even though Bettis has'nt announced retireing yet, the Steelers will need to make up for the loss of a power back, that this team has had and been acustom to, for the past 10 years.
The defenses will be confused on who will be getting the ball, in the pro set formation. It worked back in the day, why can't it work, today?:thmbup:

Any opinions on this? (Like our opinions mean anything):jammin:

There's not much call for such a thing now, since the game has moved on and even the DL are incredible athletes now. I'm wondering when the last time 2 featured backs shared the same backfield...it's been a long, long time...
