Default Poor Willie Parker.

Some Steeler fans will continue to badmouth him no matter what he does. Check out what this guy has to say...

http://mboard.steelers.com/fanzone/mboard/news/67079

8 carries for 19 yds in the pro bowl. Not pretty stats, but he ignores that the mighty Tiki Barber went 4 yds on 7 carries and then jumps on Willie for not catching an errant pass!

What does Willie have to do to prove he's a legitimate RB? In a sucky 2006, he's was our best player and carried the Steelers on his back on a few occasions(See Saints game).

Yinz take it from here.

Its the freaking Pro Bowl so I could care less how Willie does in that game. Sure I wouldn't mind Willie scoring a TD but the key is Willie didn't get hurt in that meaningless game.

Agree completely - Tom Brady had the right idea when he played at Pebble Beach this weekend instead.

That game is a joke - even if the game is supposed to be some modified version of flag football (although Sean Taylor apparently did not get that memo) players still get injured - the Pro Bowl needs to go the way of its former bookend, the College All-Star Game, that used to start the season.

I saw what happend. His line didn't block worth anything when he got the ball. That game is a joke anyway.

You said it yourself, Edman. He was the best player on the team this year. Think of the yardage he would have accrued if the Steelers had actually been a playoff team. My hunch is that for the vast majority of Steeler fans, Willie has nothing to prove -- he has more than proven himself many times over, and the best news is that next season will only be his fourth. Let the badmouthers blow their hot air. They'll be jumping right back on the bandwagon when the Steelers are in the hunt again, not that any of us will care about them, right?

You got that right!! Bengals fans are falling all over themselves with Carson being named MVP. He and Chad are nothing but attention w*h*o*r*e*s, as far as I'm concerned. They were all about getting the spotlight off Peyton Manning. I'm grateful all of our guys were smart enough to reliaze it was a meaningless game and put more effort on the beach with their families than in that stupid game.

It kinda figures they'd get excited over their QB being named MVP of a meaningless game - what else have they had to cheer about?

Maybe Chad and Carson can purchase Pro Bowl champs rings.

People People People.

It goes like this.

Unless a running back tips the scales at over 230... and can hit guys for four yards, he sucks.

What complete idiocy. The funniest thing is, one person actually posted that Bettis was too beat up to play in the playoffs... running against 8/9 in the box... DUH... Because BETTIS COULD ONLY RUN ONE WAY... BETWEEN THE TACKLES.

How stupid are people? THAT IS WHY BIG STEAMROLLER TEAMS DONT WIN SB's. I have said it a million times. BALANCE. I swear. People like that actually almost make me want to route for the bengals.... well... maybe not. BUt you get the point.

I agree 100%. By putting 8-9 in a box, they are able also to put pressure on the QB at the same time. I love Bettis, but he did bring about another set of problems for QB's.
