Exclamation Ok, Im calling for it, a change at RB.

Figg mentioned this in a post in another thread and I was thinking the same thing earlier too so I thought it deserved its own thread....

I know our OL is nothing but a bunch of turnstyles these days, but when you have this you need a power back who can help make their own holes and power thru tackles.

Duce is the starter.
Jerome is the back up and comes in on goal line and short yardage like last year.
Willie is the 3rd down back. The guy can be amazing in spot duty for us especially on 3rd down.


I like willie alot, but he's just not getting it done and its not all his fault w/ our OL being sub par so far. When you need a boost, you need to get back to the Steeler power running game w/ Duce and Bettis and do what we do best. In that situation, a 3rd down back, Willie can be an excellent option.

I have to agree with you. Right now as much as I do like Willie it's just not working. Powerbacks are our bread and butter. I think we need to try Duce starting with Bettis backing him up. It was a good formula last year. Couldn't hurt to try it.

i totally agree with you BRC..........actually i wanted a change as soon as he was shut down by the pats......... i like willie a lot and i know willie won't be a ***** if he is moved down on the chart and hell he was gonna be the third down back anyway before the season started so i think we should go back to what this team was supposed to be like........ and in april draft lendale white damn it!!

yeah I saw your post and since u and I were definately thinking the same thing, I figured a new thread devoted to the topic was in order. I forgot to give you credit for it in my initial post, but I fixed it now.

Good stuff bro !!!

Yes, I second the motion. I mentioned earlier that I`m not sure about Willie Parker, besides a big play here and there. He is not yet a back that can carry a team from time to time

I agree 5,000,000,000,000,000%

I like Willie,but we need a power back,not a speed back (except for certain situations).

I also think defenses have possibly figured Willie out,and therefore,he is easily stopped.

At first I thought Willie was a speed AND power back (which would be perfect,like LT),but now I think he is just a pure speed back...and doesn't really fit into this offense.
