Default Parker back on top

Don't look now, but Willie Parker is back to being the NFL's leading rusher with 507 yards. He is the only rusher averaging more than 100 yards per game. He also has more rushing yards than any receiver has receiving yards, except for Randy Moss. Nice job, Willie!

Stats are cool and all, but when all is said and done, as long as FWP continues to play hard and contribute to the success of the Steelers O, I don't pay attention to stats.

It may not be a very meaningful stat in the big scheme of things, but it's still cool to know, IMO. I hope Fast Willie can enjoy being on top of the heap, for however long it lasts.

We need to give Willie his kudos. Coming from a school that did not see his talent and being the guy who has to play after the Bus retires (which is like being the QB after Bradshaw retired). Hes doing well and being humble while doing it.

Yeah, stats are stats and the only one that matters is W/L, but congrats to him. It's an indication of the effort he puts out every Sunday.

I agree. I think these kinds of little accolades mean a lot to a guy who has been underappreciated most of his career. Willie is very humble but also plays with a chip on his shoulder and that's a good thing.

It's amazing to me that there are people out there, including some on this forum who shall remain nameless, who think he shouldn't be the starter. Some people...
