Default I love Willie Parker!

We all know Willie`s a great RB but what I like most about him is the graceful way he moves on the field.Puts me in mind of a big cat,poetry in motion and very aesthetic.
Yeah I love Fast Willie.....but in a totally macho and manly way!

i love the way he plays also, he is a guy that makes you wish you were as good as him. sometimes it is cool to have a thread that just cherishes certain players. kudos to you.

Thanks for that 19ward86!
He`s just great to watch,the way he glides acoss the field,and he also makes big tackles when needed.
I just hope his broken leg doesn`t have a detrimental effect on his natural game for next season.
Hopefully the coaching staff wont rush him back before he`s back to full working order.I guess that`s one good thing about the long off-season!

No Mate,

I can't think of any "big tackles" that Willie has made?????? Perhaps you meant to say that he "breaks tackles"?

Most offensive players don't make many tackles ALTHOUGH, in the 2006 playoff game versus the Colts, Ben Roethlisberger made "The biggest tackle in Pittsburgh Steelers history". That particular play is commonly known as "The tackle".

I like Willie, but I wish we had a reliable pound it between the tackles back to complement him.

You`re right Steel Pit,I`m still trying to learn the correct terminology of football.
I meant when the RB sometimes acts as a halfback or fullback(?) and protects the QB....Does that make sense?

I wasn`t aware of "the tackle"...I`m very new to the Steelers("you don`t say!) but I will have to try and see a clip of it from somewhere.
Thanks for putting me right...It`s what I want!

I love how Willie plays also

He plays with a 'chip' on his shoulder because he sat the bench in college and wasnt drafted. Also, he plays like he truly appreciates his situation and has a true love for the game. Willie is a class act
