Does it sound like he's 100% healthy and ready to go? It always seemed to me like he did start fast, and this post prooved it!

he always starts out fast because he is completely healthy come the first game... we'll see for how long he can stay that way.... :coffee:

If Mewelde Moore was starting, he'd have 330 yards and 7 TD's rushing, and another 370 yards and 6 TD's receiving.

Willie would stay healthier if they would quit pounding him up the middle constantly on first and second down. He is not built to bull his way through the middle especially with our Oline. Maybe if they run out of the I with a FB it would help. Oh well, I can dream can't I?

Parker ALWAYS comes out of the gates real fast because we've happened to play shitty teams in Week 1.

Fixed for accuracy. There's your real reason.

39 yards on 20 carries this time, unless this is the year the Titans self-destruct.

Or unless the OL actually opens some holes for a change and he doesn't get hit 2 yards behind the LOS immediately upon taking the handoff half the time.

... OK, it's only 8:30 and I've already reached my quota for bitching about Parker for the day, so I'm gonna just resist the urge to argue here. We've probably been over this anyway. So instead, here's a picture of the most awesome thing ever.

You can't mess with Fighter Pilot T-Rex.

Agreed. We've been over this ground before anyway. Besides, I got a chuckle from the pic. :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

Our line needs to step up and block for the man. We need to get off to a fast start.
