Should, but won't. There seems to be an unwritten team rule now that the Steelers shall use one running back and stick with him the whole game, regardless of whether he's doing any good or not. Mark my words: Unless he gets hurt, it'll be Parker all game whether he does well or sucks a fat one.

But it certainly wasn't an upgrade over what we've been doing.

What really pissed me off was that sure enough, for the most part, we were right back to our idiotic Parker-or-nothing playcalling. Sure, we used Moore more often than we've used any other second running back for about three years, but that wasn't all that much. We do not need to dial him down to that extent.

Remember when we had both Bettis and Parker on the same team? THAT'S how you use two good running backs. You don't just insist on sticking with one and give the other 4 predictable carries a game.
Um... Moore got his yards against a HORRIBLE D in Cincy. .

Willie got his yards against a VERY GOOD D.

No comparison.


I don't mind giving Parker all the carries tonight. He needs to get back up to speed real fast (no pun intended). But down the stretch, yes, the runs need to be spread out. MeMo should get some more touches.

Hey, Moore did just as well against the Giants -- slightly better, actually -- and their even stronger defense. Willie certainly didn't outclass him with last night's performance; if anything, he fought to a draw, and that's being generous. 70 yards and 3.3 YPC is just barely passable if you're getting all the carries, and I don't care whose defense you're going up against. Even the '85 Bears gave up more yards than that half the time, and our own Steel Curtain teams actually allowed more than that in the vast majority of their games.

So I don't buy the good defense/bad defense argument, except that it sometimes explains why a guy didn't have a 150-yard night. I saw Parker out there, and he wasn't exactly the strength of the offense last night either. He wasn't instrumental in any of our TD drives, which were the result of a turnover and some smart, opportunistic passing plays by Leftwich.

Sorry, but all Parker did was play just well enough to avoid it being labeled a bad game.

Its really getting old man.

If you ask me, the block Parker did for Leftwich on the pass to Nate and the TD run a few plays later look "instrumental" to me on that TD drive. If anything, the O-line tends to play better in the 2nd half and that is when Parker was a little more productive.
