Default Re: Duce to have carries in week 1.

Isn't this a moot point anyway? DaBoot seems right that regardless of what's being said now, the chances of Duce touching the ball on game day have to be low if he's not 99.9% by then. I'm sorry for criticizing Duce, and I hate to say it, but I'm just not convinced. I know he was leading the team in rushing at some point last year, but isn't he supposed to be? He's the number one guy in his position. Doesn't that demand a little more durability? This is like K. Bell all over again, but in a more vital position... Oh well, I really hope my suspicions are wrong and he's healthy for the playoffs this year. I guess that's all we really need.

Just so Cowher does the right thing. If Willie Parker plays well, then let him have the ball. He competed day in and day out . All training camp.

this is how i am hoping things shake out - fast willie - tears up out of the gate -cowher long has a history of benching starteres when the return from injuries ie maddox and chad scott last year. willies is our number one back - staley if he ever is healthy the third down back - bettis short yardage - veron - sorry buddy - special teamer

That sounds good to me. Although, I'd give Veron a little more love.

Yes you are right, we brought him here to be the main guy, and when he's healthy he can defiantely do it, he's proven that. Problem w/ him is we know he had a history of some injuries when we brought him here, but the contract he has is very cap friendly, and we always have a good stable of RB's to help pick up the slack if / when he goes down.

So we'll see, I just wanna him back out there and kickin ass for us. He and Willie would make a great duo!

Those are damn good points - we can't say we didn't know what we were getting into. I'm feeling much better about this situation. Hopefully much much better in a couple days!

Jersey- Just wondering if you saw Cowhers post practice comments on team pass? Duce was downgraded from questionable to doubtful

Him being questionable to begin with was a smoke screen. Reporters for the Steelers said as much. You should replay your team pass press confrence im positive Cowher didnt say Duce definitly is going to get carries. He said "Ideally, we?d like to get him some repetition."
