I've side it before and I'll say it again. Duce's career is over.

How about when he was leading the league in rushing in a Steeler uniform.

I thought pre-season didn't mean much...comin into camp out of shape is unacceptable, I agree but pre-season numbers don't mean a thing. Look at any top back and what he did in the pre-season and you'll see that.

Right....he came to camp out of shape and as a result of coming to shape out of shape, his play on the field hasn't looked good. He looks slow, no pop and out of shape. Which is why we went out and brought in another back.

You asked why fans are down on Duce. I simply threw a reason out there.

I can't imagine the Rooney's sitting back and stating "Well, look what he did two years ago.". My guess, it went something like this..........."He came into camp out of shape. He looks slow. Let's start looking.".

We can't trade him because I strongly doubt anybody wants him. We can't release him for a few reasons.

I guess I'll just have to agree to disagree because I feel his play was a result of rust and playing with the second and third string. I don't think as the pre-season went on, he was still out of shape.

It probably did happen the way you said it did, I'm not disputing that. I just don't get the fans that dislike Duce and say he's a POS when all he's done is be patient and be a good teammate.

I'm not doubting rust had something to do with it. That should have been more of a reason for him to make sure he was in top shape heading into camp.

If that's the case then why do YOU think Cowher and Co. went looking for somebody else? Do you believe that it was some kind of personal bias?
