I've also seen Parker hit a pile and drive it 3 and 4 yards before going down this year. Parker dances when there is no hole. But remember, his big runs all came when there WAS a hole and Parker was able to get into the secondary untouched, which is EXACTLY what mendy did last game, except for 2 times.

Good point. I'm all good with opposite arguments if you can back it up. After all, we are all fans of the same team.

I've always been a big Willie fan, but I have to agree that I don't think he would have gotten 160 last night. He would have had a good game thanks the play of the O-Line, but the problem with FWP is that he is missing holes and has cut the wrong way on several occassions this season. I'm thinking that with all of the time he's missed the past few seasons he's rusty and not reading the defense as well as he was in the past.

Or at least thats my non-professional opinion of his play thus far.
