I say if he can keep this up I'd be for it. He played very well and had a great game.

i say yes, he proved that the bills game wasn't a one game wonder. and since we play the texans next week it'll be the same outcome. so i say he stays the starter until he proves he can't carry the load.

To me this is a no brainer! Willie should start. Why?

Well for starter he is explosive. He hits the same holes that Bettis and Staley hit, but at least a full second faster. He is on top of the hole before it really develops. He is elusive, and super freaky fast. This kid is a player. I say let him play. He is so quick that it will be hard for someone to get a good lick on him, so this will help keep him healthy

I say let him start!! He has shown he can handle the job. I would certainly keep the BUS for goal line situations......

Come on Parker, KEEP IT UP!!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes things happen, and when injuries strike, you cant take the hot hand off the field when the original starters get healthy.

If Willie continues to play well, Im all for him keeping the job.. BUT..

We cant forget that Jerome and Duce are important too, so we'll need all of them thruout the year to step up for us.

I would like to see a mixture of them all during games. Let Willie be the main guy, but get some nice runs with Bettis and Staley as well.

Thats the optimal situation and one that cowher is looking forward to Im sure. When you are down at first and inside the 5, bring in Jerome and let him be the man. Willie can be the starter and be spelled by Duce during the game.

Of course anything can happen but one thing is for sure, the Front office will want to look at giving Willie a nice fat extension and raise after this year if he continues to progress and play well.

I say do Willie as starter, Staley as 3rd down back. and Bettis as Goal Line. I think that would be a very big threat, because you have the air, then 3 different kinds of backs to worry about.

Go Steelers!

*Sidenote: I flipped on the Ravens-Colts game, saw Kemoeatu on the line for the Ratbirds, and almost sh*t a bird. I was like NOOO THEY PICKED HIM OFF OUR SQUAD. Then I searched Yahoo News and saw it was another Kemoeatu... whew...
