Default Re: Parker v. Staley

Don't get me wrong I like Parker a lot but I don't think he's a every down back. He makes a great 3rd down back and a possible change of pace back. He would be good filling in for a few games but not the entire season. The typical Steeler back is 5'9-6'2 225-250 lbs. The steelers do way to much running between the tackles for a 200-220 back. Now I'm not saying that they couldn't do it, I feel they'll just break down a lot faster becuz of there lack of weight. I mean if J. Bettis started wearing down and he 250lbs what would happen to a back 30-50 lbs less than him. But I would never place my offensive running game on the back of Parker, unless we had a power back to compliment him.
