Default Barlow issued #22

12 May 2007

Quote:
Kevan Barlow, Pittsburghs recently signed Runningback, was issued jersey #22 today. This is of course the number recently made available by the release of Duce Staley.
Barlow was also given Staleys old locker and plans on spending the day removing grey sweatsuits and several old metal tins of dominos.

The fact that he does have Duce's old number and locker should inspire him to not end up like Duce Staley......selfish and having absolutely zero self control when it comes to staying in shape.

Eitherway, I'm sure the ones who completely disagree with the signing will have a field day with this little tidbit of information...lol.

I dont mind the pick up of Barlow I guess, getting the ole number of Duce wont effect his performance on the field I am sure of that. I like that number on a RB it reminds me of one of the greatest of all time in Dallas... anyone remember Emmit? I hope that Barlow does well and takes some of the pressure off Willie and suplants Najeh.

Barlow will be fine if the line can do the blocking and faneca don't just let the defense run in to the backfield.

Nope

Running back Kevan Barlow's right ankle was injured in the morning drills, and he missed the rest of the day's practices.

Hopefully Barlow also will get a set of Duce's gray sweats to model on the sidelines

Probably why he was signed cheap. Low risk, low reward.

I wasn't thrilled with the signing but I've always believed in the team and the FO for making the right personnel decisions. So now I'm hoping that he doesn't turn into the last 22 that was here.

And only time will tell if he came here for a roster spot or just to wear a uniform a few more seasons. I'm sure playing for the Panthers, he knows what the City of Pittsburgh is about and how near and dear they hold their sports teams.

So Mr. Barlow - I toast you this morning and I hope that your statements about coming to be a competitor for a roster spot are true!!

Good luck!
