I think parker will be fine........We do need that big back to change it up and I hope that will be Davenport............But lets face it..........The Jags D was on top of their game last night......

I do agree that the Jags we shouting out the middle, but Parker was still trying to bang his way through. Quick backs need to bounce outside the tackles, Parker should not be a starting RB like many other quick backs Bennet a prime example.

O-line plays bad = Running game plays bad.

What else can be said? One bad game and people are ready to jump off the sunshine skyway bridge (do a google search on it - people in the tampa area use it to try to commit suicide).
As has been said - we got beat, it's one game, we move forward. Does everyone expect that every week Parker is going to get 100+ yards? Does everyone realize that not even Bettis got 100+ yards every week. Jags brought it to us and we didn't give it back except that our D didn't give up the TD.
We'll recover and do fine this week against the sissy's from cinci!

i have to agree with the majority here. The jaguars did something the raiders should have done last week. They defended there home field on a prime time game. I'm not giving up on willie and i still think are offense will be a top 10 offense this year

It's not just you -I was going to post this same comment- Parker is suspect with his decision making -- did you see the one carry he had for eight yards at the beginning of the 4th? -- That was the one time he bounced it outside and then he didn't even finish the run hard to get the first down -- he's trying to prove to everybody that he can pound it inside like the Bus used to ... you have 4.3 speed if there's nothing in the hole bounce it outside!!!! --you're not the BUS!! - every coach on the sideline should have been yelling this into his earhole -- and it wasn't sometimes - it was about every carry

Yep, it was all about the O line. It was not a very good performance by them. There are 16 games in a season people. Plenty of time to address and fix the issues. The Jags D played extremely well. We got beat by a good team, there's nothing more to say.

That person probably isn't Haynes, because he doesn't bring anything to the table that's all that different from Parker, except for having less speed.
I mean this in the most polite way but where exactly do you propose that we find that second option? It's not like shopping for a Ferrari. The only other option going into Week 3 is Kuhn if you call that an option. We took a receiver in the first round. So this is the bed we are sleeping in.

Teams aren't going to give out bonafide NFL No. 2s to just anyone let alone the defending SB Champs. So we are in an uncomfortable position of needing a passing game to open up the run.

People need to lay off Willie Parker. Jerome Bettis in his prime couldn't gain any yards last night with the way our offensive line played. A very bad performance overall. Especially the right side.
