l. white would come in and probably expect to be the next jerome bettis
humes would come in and probably hope and work hard to try and be the next bettis.
psychological advantage: humes
i think the steelers would be alright either way they go and i personally want white. he has more potential to be a larry johnson type runner than humes. but with willie parker, we dont need a l. johnson type back. drafting white could harm willies development. draftin humes tells willie the steelers have all the confidence in the world of him.
This is the best submission to this post yet! (IMO)
We need POWER. We need the best attitude possible, to be able to meld well with our guys and not break up the gel that is so readily apparent with this corps of professionals. I like Hume....and I would love to have him in Black and Gold!
Ducket could do some good for us. But do we not already have enough "aspirin-chomping" going on worrying about Duce's health.
