Against the Bills, we used a second string offesive line! Against the Bills strong first team defense. This was a Bills team that had to win to get into the playoffs. And Willie responded. He is the back of the future, i think anyway. Good points Shevdog.

Nice quote by Ben Roethlisberger

Said QB Ben Roethlisberger, "It's hard for me when I hand the ball off to Willie to carry out my fake because I want to turn around and see what kind of magic he's going to pull out."

If Ben has confidence in him , then so do I. I really like Willie Parker anyway.

Nice qoute from Ben, Prosdo.

Love the quote Prosdo...Willie does make things happen when he's on the field and is very exciting to watch!

" The Legend of Willie Parker" ??????

I`m liking it, but we will have to take a wait and see approach. If and when he plays well. Cowher better let him play. I cant stand the " A player cant lose his position due to an injury" unwritten rule.
Ben took over for Tommy after an injury and kept the job. Give me the best player for the job.

Has a nice ring to it. I agree Cleve. I really would like to see what Willie can do. I think it would also be interesting to see him be part of that #1 and #2 mix up. Having one of the bigger powerful backs then having elusive fast Willie in there. Might provide to be a nice 1 2 punch.

well bettis said he don't want to be the starting back and carry a the ball a lot, so if willie does good we won't have to worry about bettis takin over cause i'm sure he'll tell cowher or someone to roll with it, and since duce ain't ever healthy we won't have to worry about him takin the job anytime soon. so i hope willie runs all over the titans sunday and shows the world that he's for real.

I agree with Bettis , I dont want to see him as our no. 1 back either. Parker must come up huge.

i think willie is ready for the challenge and will live up to the little hype we are kind of putting on him here. with our o-line and his speed it'll be hard for him not to do good.
