Rashard is doing a nice job and he is obviously the future running back. He recently proved to be valuable in the passing game as well

I like willie a lot, but rushard is the future he has almost 1000 yards with 3 games to play and didnt start the first 4 games.

I'm afraid that Willie has been going downhill slowly since 2005. His average yards per carry has gone down every single year...4.7, 4.4, 4.1, 3.8 and then this year only 3.3 on "fresh" legs. Rashard is averaging 4.8 so far this season. I think Willie will do well for another team at some point that can gear their blocking schemes around his strengths, but I don't think it's gonna happen here.

12-26-2009, 02:26 AM
I know I'm providing a troll thread with content but I just have to say I'm extremely excited with what Rashard has shown us this year, I really do believe he will be our future, I love how he runs, and I love how he can catch the ball. It's a dimension Willie never gave us, although I respect what Willie provided this team.

Ok, so the measure of success is consistently getting to 1200 yards per season?

Well Rashard is 22 yards away from 1000 and assuming he finishes the remaining two games as starter, he will have only been the starter and/or received significant play time in 11 total games.

Combine that with the fact that this season has seen an undeniably pass oriented offense (Ben already broke the single season record for a Steeler QB and will likely eclipse 4000+ yards) and you're definitely either a huge idiot or a huge troll. Rashard's average as a starter would have him on pace for ~1700 yards...

Also, considering this is his 2nd year and the fact that his first year he was on IR for the majority of it, he hasn't had sufficient time to establish any sort of trend.

Willie Parker's Mom everybody. :wave:

Parker had a nice run with the Steelers, but it's over. Parker was, even at his peak, every bit as flawed and probably more so than Rashard is. Parker's vision has been called a weakness since he was in college at North Carolina. Parker's also had problems with fumbling like Rashard, but Rashard is younger and signed longer. He's the future here, so deal with it. :flap:

It's simple. For as much as I have loved Willie P., he had his chance to prove himself this year, but he came up injured too many times, for the third year in a row.

That means he is going to be let go and Rashard is the future.

Hopefully Willie will resign cheap. But I doubt it.

What kind of thread is this it must be a Christmas hangover or something. If Mendenahll would have played all the games this year he would have been a 1200 yard back and not to mention the rec. yards he would have had. I think you need to go back to bed and sleep your hangover off.:doh:

Look kid - everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but did you eat some tainted Lucky Charms or something?

FWP is our PAST and is injury prone. Mendy is our FUTURE and he's earned that starter position. No two ways about it.

I think you must be joking around wasting time.

But, in case you are serious...

RB's hit a wall and are never the same. Parker has hit that wall.
There are very few RB's like Bettis, Franco and dozen and a half others who can put a 10-12 yr career together. Most just lose it after too many hits.

RM is our future now. He can run, catch and block.

As much as i liked FWP in the past at this point he isnt the best RB we have. The best one is the one starting and will rush for over 1000 yards for us in Mendenhall. Mendenhall is better right now no matter how good parker was.

geeze the guy that made this thread is an idiot.

yes willie back in the day was an awesome back for us, probably maybe one of the best undrafted rookies we ever brought in (short of knowledge cant think of other undrafted rookies we brought in that had such an impact as willie)

because tomlinson had the 2006 mvp season Is he STILL the best running back although Chris Johnson who now can definitley get 2000 yards, (note tomlinson is 3rd of that much yards this season) IS STILL the best back.

i hate to break it to you but all good things come to an end, whilst Willie might have an awesome game here and there he wont ever get a 1000 yard season again.

Willie Parker, 210 791 3.8 34 4 5 71.9 0 29


This is 2009 Rashard vs. 2008 Willie Parker. Much like last season, willie came out hot then fizzled out. Both Willie's got hurt during the season and pretty much dissapointed upon returning.

Willie Parker isn't the same he was, he still has vision but he doesn't have the speed nor the explosiveness - Running Backs fall off around 30 for a reason, they take a beating. That toll adds up on their bodies over the season. We all loved old WP also, but his time is over now and it's Rashards turn. Kid didn't play the first 4 games of the season and will probably finish this year around 1,100 -1,200 yards

Willie Parker was a good back. He could have been better if he would have actually hit the holes that were there instead of dancing in the backfield trying to always get to the edge. He could never learn how to take what was there.

Rashard Mendenhall I think could be a GREAT back. He has the strength to break tackles (Willie has always gone down easy) and he hits the holes instead of dancing around in the backfield. He is the future of the Steelers running game.

Mendenhall can also block and score touchdowns in short yardage. Two other things Parker couldn't do.

Willie Parker hasn't been the same since he broke his leg in December of 07 against the Rams. He's basically done. He may catch on with another team or even stay here if he can accept a backup role and a heavy pay cut. That is where he is at right now. I don't think he's starting material anywhere in this league at this point.
Running Backs just don't last in this league. Too much of a pounding.

I like Rashard and think he is definitely our future, and a much better running back than FWP. Willie has nothing but speed. No vision, and no shiftiness. He is a good change of pace back, but that's about it. The reason he looked so good in his early years is because we had a dominating run blocking oline. However, I do think Rashard still plays a little timid, especially against the Ravens. He may be a little scared of Ray Lewis. Can't really blame him there...

stlrtruck
12-28-2009, 09:30 AM
How can Rashard prove himself when he's only getting 15-20 touches a game when he should be getting about 30 or more?

Parker, since his injury, has shown that he doesn't have the determination to hit the hole and doesn't get to top speed until he's past the LBs. He needs to get over his mental block before he can be productive again. As for Rashard, I believe he has it in him to be a star back but he doesn't have the OC to call his number more.

Bingo, I agree with this post.

The fact that Mendenhall got to 1000 yards rushing with this Pass First offense speaks volumes to his potential and impact as a player.

12-28-2009, 10:08 AM
There is only one mention of the O-line in this conversation, and I think more needs to be said. Bettis was running awesome at the end of his career with a good O-line, that Parker inherited. Mendenhal is not that lucky. Our O-line needs to get healthy, experience and maybe one more high draft pick next year. Mendenhal needs to quit fumbling to be considered really good. Parker is far from washed up!! He picks a decent team and he will do a Cedric Benson on the league. You ever see Willie with his shirt off? ( shut up, not that there's anything wrong with that) He is solid steel!!!!

I'm no expert on what is or isn't a troll, but it seemed like the guy had a valid opinion, why so harsh some of you?
