i think the most realistic steelerfans feel blessed to have moore and russell and eagerly await the return of a healthy return of parker and mendenhall.



the future is so bright....

He had 13 carries for 22 yards in the first half and he was just fine injury wise. He's horrible. He's a breakout runningback who only breaks out once a game for 10-20 yards if we're lucky. Usually managing 2 yards or less on the majority of his carries and sticking the team into a 3rd and long where the o-line gives the Berger a good .005 seconds to throw before the blitz ravages the o-line and the Bergers head. Anyone who still isn't on cloud nine from Willie's Superbowl run knows this guy doesn't fit into this teams run style, which is smash mouth up the gut, in your face. Not 30 carries so 1 of them can get broken for 30 yards while the other 29 carries go for 2 yards. Why do you think we don't run the ball anymore and our quarterback has to throw 40 times a game and suffer the consequences of a miserable offensive line who has to deal with defenses that no longer respect the Steelers run game.

Being injured all year is not an excuse, it's a problem. I can name 5 running backs better than Willie Parker who got cut cause they just couldn't stay healthy. This is Football, not baseball, we don't have time for people to "rest" or be hurt for 2-3 months.

It's exactly because he is Willie Parker that the Steelers will take their time. And that's 'Fast' Willie Parker to you!

I'm guessing you've just been awoken by some magical spell, and missed the last few seasons!

2005- 4.7
2006- 4.4
2007- 4.1

I won't even mention this year but there is an obvious trend. And as I said before, these numbers are inflated by that 1 or 2 carries Willie would break for 20-30 yards. But All his other carries for the game are 1-2 yards. Well I rather have a RB that averages 3.5 yards per carry but literally gets 3-4 yards every carry putting our offense in much needed 3rd and short situations as well as giving us a goal line weapon. The Steelers rush scheme has been the second best in football behind the Broncos over the last 10 years. Our rushing offense is not a product of Mr. Parker, Mr. Parker is a product of our rushing offense but unfortunetly that product has expired.

1. Anyone who has actually watch the Steelers over the last 4 years have seen an evolution into a balanced, 1 back system. Your days of I formation 3 yards and a cloud of mediocrity is over. A more wide open offense is what the Steelers play now, like it or not. And that wasn't because of Willie. That was because of Ben, Ward, Santo (Randle El before him), Heath, etc.

2. We don't run the ball anymore BECAUSE OUR O LINE CANT BLOCK. And by the way, we DO run the ball, quite a bit. Or has Willie going over 1000 yards the last couple years been overlooked?

3. Our QB throws 40 times a game BECAUSE THAT IS HOW WE GAME PLAN NOW. That is what happens when you have a FRANCHISE QB.

I'm guessing, but don't quote me on this , that may have been overlooked.

NYC would'ave probably been calling for The Bus to have been cut in '04!
