Re: Will the wheels fall off of Parker?
IMO Tomlin likes to throw comments out to get a rise out of the media (e.g. - the promise of numerous 2 a days during training camp that turned out not be true).
Tomlin is not going to run Parker until the wheels fall off - but saying that is an easy way for Tomlin to send a compliment to Parker regarding how valuable he thinks Willie is via the media
If Parker does carry the ball >370 times this year he will be burned out and not be starting by 2009
