Running Backs
 
Who would be your starter if all three Staley, Bettis and Parker were healthy. I don't know but it seems that willie is the fan favorite now. I think I would start willie. Keep duce as a third down back and Jerome as a short yardage/ goal line specialist.

Funny I was just talking about this with my workmates. I said that I would love to see the Steelers run the WISHBONE for just one play!!!

Just to freak out the opponents D! Jerome at the full and Willie and Duce the halfs.

i'd keep willie in as starter. he's the kind of back that i like, i love small fast running backs with a little power. and he's a good story to follow, a kid that didn't even start for his college team went on drafted signed with the steelers and was fourth string at one point then third to starting for the steelers in less then two seasons. plus duce and bettis gave their vote of confedince in him so he must be doing something right if a future hall of famer and the guy that was supposed to be the starter are saying keep him in.

I'd keep Willie as well. He did a great job week 1. I think you have to keep him in for right now. If he hits a wall and doesn't seem to be getting it done then you bring Duce or Jerome in.

Willie has my vote also. He's young so that makes him our future.

Lets use Staley as trade bait.

Willie was amazing week 1...as long as he keeps it up I think he should start!

Willie is the starter for as long as he's productive. Bettis comes in on goal line situations and Duce spells Willie.

Works for me.

Let Willie play and let the others get healthy. Having Jerome and Duce come Dec will pay off better than if we need Parker in Dec with still only 2 starts under his belt. Also, cause no one has an answer for him yet.
