Default Re: King: Tiki to Pgh

I think he could be a third down back, you figure with the time off, he has had time to let his body recover and recoup, but I don't expect him to be a force like he used to be. 36 is not old, but for a football player it is, because by the time you are that age, your body has sure taken a beating.

Tiki would follow in those footsteps.

That's not even close to being true. Duce helped set the momentum for the 2004 season. Through the first half of that season he was on the short list of league MVP candidates. In my opinion momentum is easiar to sustain than establish, and he without a doubt Duce was the player who set the tempo offensively for one of the more successfull seasons in recent Steelers history. Also when called upon in 2005 he helped the Steelers win two important mid seasons games when Parker and Bettis were unable to answer the bell due to injuries.

Yeah I understand more was expected of Duce when he signed, we can only wonder what sort of season he would have had in 04 if he had remained healthy. But all in all I would say the Steelers had no regrets about his signing.

So you want A. Smith gone because he is too old and down and out, but want a 36 y/o RB who is down and out? Tiki is an injury waiting to happen, no way we sign him for any amount of money.
