will willie be the next timmy smith?

"I heard about [Smith], and that motivates me,'' Parker told me last week at the Steelers' camp at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa. "Coach Cowher sat me down and told me about that guy in minicamp this year. He told me, 'You'd better not be partying too much.' I know all about Timmy Smith now. I'm trying not to follow him.''


cowher didnt tell him not to party, just not to party TOO MUCH. willie gets it.

I'm looking for Willie to put up some good numbers this year. I wouldn't mind seeing him more on 3rd down and goal line plays.

i was saying that in a post last month, i think if he gained about 25LBS he could be an every down back and that would save us money.

i hope he can build on last year. i still think he is the underdog and i will root for the underdog. even a lot of Steeler fans do not think he can do it.
