Default Welcome back Verron!

He is officially a Pittsburgh Steeler again.

http://news.steelers.com/article/86416/

Coach Tomlin said in his press conference today that Haynes will be getting 3rd down action as well as spelling Najeh Davenport a long with Carey Davis.

That's nice. Hopefully he can get some carries late in the 4th quarter after we've already established a lead and need to kill clock.

Hope he's in "game" shape in 2 weeks. I'd like to see Russell and Davis get lots of work this weekend against the Ravens and have 4 guys dressed at RB come playoff time.

Welcome back Verron Haynes!

Another advantage to having him back is he's a very good blocking FB.

Anyway, welcome back Verron. Looking forward to seeing that 3rd down back working his magic again.

he'll probably get some good action sunday with us likely to rest davenport. but i really hope they use russell as well. i remember the 2004 last game of the season vs the bills when willie parker got his first start because we clinched.. he went for over 100 yards with all the backups in on offense against a team fighting for the playoffs.

Simple math as far as I am concerned...Russell made the team and should be back next year....Haynes was cut. Therefore, give the carries to Russell!!

I don't think Russell has impressed the team since the end of camp... He has like five carries on the season and often doesn't even suit up.

I think Davenport will start but after the Steelers are up by a certain point, he'll sit.
