Default Another Game...another Willie Parker Fumble

And at the goal line! This guy has fumbled away games in the past and he's doing it again albeit in preseason. I'm stating now that the Steelers will loose games this season...important games, as a result of badly timed Willie Parker fumbles. I don't like the guy as the starting back. Too small and fumbles WAY too much. I have a BAD feeling again about the RB situation this season.

Yeah I know...

That was possibly the greatest statment I have ever read on these boards... Especially it being your first post... I am also guessing you wanted him to go instead of Kevan Barlow tonight right? Being elected to the pro bowl in a superior division doesn't mean anything does it?

You don't find a back with his speed very often. He will be fine when the season starts. I think we should worry about our kick return game more then the RB situation. Parker will be our franchise back for years to come.

Pro bowl doesnt mean a thing if your sitting on the couch at home during the playoffs.

Parker consistently fumbles and the number of yards he picks up doesnt mean much if he fumbles the game away at the 1 yard line.

I had a lot of discussion last year about this matter and I believe there were 3 or 4 games where Parker fumbles LITERALLY cost us a scoring chance and a chance at winning. If only ONE of those games were won, Parker could have played in both the Pro Bowl, along with the rest of the team, and the Playoffs.

This love of Parker has to be tempered by common sense. If you cant hold onto the ball...why should you be handed the responsibility of carrying it in the first place?

then who should we pick up in order to fill the so called "void" at running back? come on, the guy has been in the league for three years he is getting better. we finally have that explosion on offense that will put our offense with the tops in the league. arnt you being a little hard on the guy for makeing a pro bowl in his second season even with a bland offensive line from last year.

did willie win a ring and set a SB record for longest run in sb history from his couch? maybe the coaches shouldve called a play fake to willie and utilized 2 of the picks they have used on a tight end instead of running willie into a 3 man pile as faneca stood by and watched.

This is the type of guy who comes and finds a board to make a rediculous post like this so he doesn't have to take any responsibility or heat for his opinion because he knows he is wrong in the first place.

Guess what, if Ben would'nt have thrown 20+ interceptions the same thing could be said about making the playoffs. If the secondary had less missed interceptions the same could b said. Nice arguement, to bad it's completley over.

Well, at least it didn't happen in a game that mattered, so maybe he's just getting his 'willies' out so he won't let us down next time.

That said, I think he's an excellent back with exceptional speed. That 18 yard TD run was seriously smooth. If Barlow can pull that off, I'll become a Cowgirls fan. (JK)
