Default I knew miami was a fluke for parker ...

I am still sticking by my gut feeling that parker isnt the answer to our running game ... he can't carry the load against top defenses a la jaguars ... j-ville was dropping into coverage and picked ben twice because we had no running game ... they don't have a bruiser to grind out the tough yards ... davenpooper is also not the answer, just a temporary solution for this year ... here is too michael bush next year falling to the steelers late in the first round ...

side note; this is not a thread giving up on the whole season ... tonight was just a bad game ... but i think you'll see a trend just like last year in parkers production against teams with even a halfway decent defense

Was it just me or did Parker have room to the outside sometimes and chose to cut in and get tackled right away?

Maybe it is our O line ??? I didnt see any holes opened up and they were filled pretty damn fast... Sooo that mean our line is the one who didnt open up any thing for Parker? Tough to run the ball when nothing is there.

That's true too, I don't even think a "bruiser" would have been able to run between the tackles through those huge defensive lineman. I think the Pittsburgh fans need to get rid of BBS (big back syndrome)

OMG we didnt go undefeated ????

Fire the coaches, Whiz sucks, Cowher cant coach, Parker cant play, Holmes is already a bust.. Troy shouldnt play with 1 arm, our Line sucks, Ward is crappy cause he didnt make a catch he should have. Ben blows cause he threw two picks and had a crappy asss passer rating and was inconsistant, and got forbid he didnt run or scramble tonight to pick up a few first downs.

I hope that makes some of the people that needed to find excuses for us losing happy. Accept the fact is only second game of year. I am not ready to say Jax is the second coming of the 72 Dolphins, we just got outplayed by a team that defensively beat us up tonight..

I give alot of credit to our D as much as they were on the field tonight.. We couldnt sustain any drives to give them a break.. but that is why I dont think Jax is as good as we made them look. Our O line got humbled tonight.. they didnt do Parker any favors.

I agree with this 100%. Parker will bounce back this week

What is it with some of you people? Two games into the season with one not-too-stellar offensive performance against a tough, gritty, hard-hitting D and you're ready to give up on our running game? The Dolphs' D is a fairly good unit and Parker ran for 115 on them. The Jags were up for that game, they were hungry to beat us (as most teams will be this season) and they manhandled our entire O, including the line, not just Parker & Haynes. You win as a team and lose as a team. Though the Steelers D played admirably by only giving up 3 FGs instead of 3 TDs, they were on the field most of the night and had to have been exhausted. We lost our first game of the season with 14 to go. I'm not giving up on our team or our running game at this very early point in the season.
