"safety net", "lets the star play with wreckless abandon", "solid player" etc.

this pick up just seems to get better and better each day. great job of team scouting by the steelers. i never even noticed clark when he played for the skins.

when troy and clark come out of the preseason games i think it will be fun to watch the tandem of carter and smith absolutely maul teams 2nd strings. especially with mcfadden and colclough plaing 2nd string corners. i cant wait to see how deep our secondary really is. i think alot of eyes will be openned.

Nice. As I've stated in the past, every time they interview the kid on Sports Beat I get more and more pumped to watch him play. I've heard nothing but great things about him coming out of the DC area media and the local media. In my opinion, Hope will be an overpaid memory after Steeler fans see the way Clark plays. I have complete faith.

If not a flat out improvement. Ryan - I think - will prove to be tougher and better against the run in short yardage situations and at the goal line. Add ARE to the overpaid memory list although his Super Bowl effort won't be forgotten.

Even though my faith in Duce is shaky on the flip side if he regains his form that we saw when he started in 2004 then he could easily be No. 1. He ran a strong downhill style and he was averaging just under 5 yds. per carry. Over 5 yds. against the Super Bowl Champion Patriots. But he's reached 1000 only 3 times in his career. I'd be looking at it like Parker and Duce are both No. 1s in a way and if we get 800 from Duce this season then we'll go deep if not all the way to XLI

Staley has always been pretty much in a running back by committee approach until he got his shot in which he had 700 plus yards inthe first 7 games of the season before he got hurt his 1st year here. I agree, we do have two potential #1's and is why i think we are in better shape than people think considering Stahley didnt play last year. Like i said, Parker will and rightfully so get the nod no matter what to start the season and unless he doesnt produce, Staley will come in if and when Parker cant go anywhere. I like our situation.

Of course I want to see the rookies. Then the various other young players mentioned through out this thread. But I really want to see Ryan Clark and he is picking up the defense. I thought it was a good signing when we signed him. As somebody mentioned in a few posts up in this thread. The Clark signing sounds better each passing day.

Oh yea one thing to add about this game. No injuries please. I hate nothing more then to see somebody injured in a pre-season game.

I think either one can start and we will do just fine...Its not who starts but what plays go to each back...Duce is going to pound it and parker is going to get the counters, outside runs, and screens...
