Default Re: Poor Willie Parker.

I still think the steelers need another running back to complement parkers running style. two back systems work. look at almost every team in the playoffs. they all have a legit #2 RB, OBVIOUSLY parker is not going anywhere. he just signed a four or five year deal last year sometime. Indy- addai/rhodes. chicago-benson/jones NE-maroney/dillon Saints-Bush/mcallister. Seahawks Morris/alexander giants-tiki/jacobs. unless we turn into a pass-happy team like philly or cincy, we definitly need another sound option at RB incase parker goes down. noone should question willies heart/talent ... but i think it is safe to say that noone feels comfortable with the rest of our RB's in the event that parker misses an extended period of time

... the only job for our staff is to figure out if that second back is on our roster already or not.

Getting Willie a complimentary backup is what I agree with wholeheartedly. It's just that some fans are saying he isn't a good back at all. That's what this Providence Steel guy is saying.

I think someone already make the most important point. He didn't get hurt.... that is the one and only thing that should be on every Steeler fans mind!

Here's the article from Steelers.com--- Hoak's take on how they got Willie http://news.steelers.com/article/73362/

As for any doubts that Willie is legit. Read the comments from Hoak and remember that his teammates voted him the 2006 MVP.

Enough said.

Yeah, I read that article the day they put it on the site and was like "Wow... he really does mean alot,"

Not like I doubted him, but after reading and hearing so much about him during the end of the season, it showed me that he really means alot to this team, more than I had realized. I also agree with the fact that he didn't get hurt, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try and get someone to compliment him.
