Default Steelers' Barlow Vs. Davenport: A RB Comparison

Title: Steelers' Barlow Vs. Davenport: A RB Comparison
Source: Steelers Fever
Date: 7/18/07
Author: Paul Eide

Summary: It may not be Luke Skywalker versus Darth Vader, but a battle is being waged for the Steelers number two running back position behind starter Willie Parker. Seven year veteran Kevan Barlow and sixth year pro Najeh Davenport are competing for the role of Parker's primary back up and the loser may find himself in the NFL unemployment come September.

Hope Dookie gets it, no offense to Barlow but I think he's lost a step and won't get in the team.

May the best man win.

I don't mind Dookie getting it, but I am worried about his ability to stay healthy.

Dookie wins hands down. Barlow came in slow and out of shape.

I was listening to Doug Buffone on Chicago sports and he suspected that there may be a chance for Kuhn to get a shot at Fullback this year...havn't heard it anywhere else..but Uncle Dougie does have Pittsburgh connections with being raised in Yatesboro and attending High School at Shannock Valley

I hope Kuhn gets a job at fullback, but he's talking about a backup fullback job right? Kuhn is great but the backfield is really crowded and his best chances actually seem to be at fullback.

I wouldnt mind Kuhn being our backup fullback. We have really lacked depth there the last few years and if Kreider were to get injured we could be in trouble.

I've seen some of what Pooper can do behind center with the Steelers, but won't be able to see what Barlow's got until TC and pre-season, so it is kind of unfair for me to voice a legitimate opinion at this point.
