Default Re: Should Willie remain the starter?

Yes, for 3 reasons:

A) This wasn't a flash in the pan. He ripped the VERY good Buffalo Bills defense for 102 yards last year, and that was behind a largely second string offense in a game the Bills desperately needed to win.
B) He proved he can run between the tackles. That was the knock going in against him, and, whether or not the Titans defense is going to be good or not this year, they still have several good players who looked stupid trying to tackle Parker.
C) If he's durable and for real, every game he plays, every tackle he takes, makes the 1-2 punch of Bettis and Duce that much more dangerous later in the year. Imagine trying to game plan in January for a team that has 3 healthy RB's who each have the ability to take a game over, all in different ways?
