Default Re: Parker could start on opening day

Good quote...... I like this guy.

"If they call my number (as a starter), that's fine with me," Parker said Friday night after he displayed two more flashes of preseason brilliance in the Steelers' 17-10 loss to the Washington Redskins . "I just have to be ready. I have to keep practicing the way I've been practicing. I'll do whatever it takes to help this team."

I think I can say "That we all like our offensive line, they are probably one of the best in the league" With that said. Bus, and Duce barrel through these holes put their head down and keep pumping thier feet. We if our line can blow those same hole open for a fast elusive back like Willie Parker then let him juke some db`s. I think that would be exciting to watch. With our line Willie Parker just may be a diamond in the rough. Portis the other night agiant us exploded threw the holes. We don`t get that from Bettis and Staley, with Parker we do. He is definitley a nice change of pace.

Well if Willie comes in and starts a few games, the future will be in his hands. Perform so well that the FO can't take you out as a starter I say.......... We will see what happens, but I like the look in Willie's eyes. ;)

I like Parker, but it does make me a little nervous with only having Parker, Haynes, and maybe Herron. I do think Willie should be used more, but I would have prefered to have Bettis and Staley healthy or atleast one of the two.

Please prove me wrong Duce.

Yeah not having much of a choice is what worries me. I dont doubt parkes desire, his attitude, his work ethic or anything.. all Im worried about is having a healthy big back who can move the pile forward for that tough extra first down when we really need it. Parker can always bounce it outside or take it on a sweep too, which will be awesome but we have ALOT of plays that run between the tackles and even Jerome has tough times now and then moving the pile.

Here's to willie kickin ass all year for us,and the rest of our backs getting healthy!!
