Default Parker named Steelers' MVP

Parker named Steelers' MVP
Thursday, December 28, 2006

By Gerry Dulac

Willie Parker, who earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl this season, was named the Steelers' Most Valuable Player today, the first time a running back has won the award since Jerome Bettis in 2000.

The award is voted on by the players.

Parker is the third leading rusher in the AFC with 1,360 yards and has scored 14 touchdowns (11 rushing, three receiving), one shy of tying the franchise single-season record.

Well deserved too. Congrats to Parker.
I believe he is 73 yds. shy of the team single season rushing record also. And that's on a team that's had the likes of Franco Harris and Jerome Bettis.

Wow, MVP and to think....he isnt a "Jerome Bettis type back!"


He deserves this much more than he he deserves to be second guessed. Run crazy in Honolulu Willie!

Kudos to Willie! This wasn't a surprise, as he is one of the few on the team who played with any degree of consistency this season. Well deserved honor!
