I cannot tell you how much I'm hoping to hear the words "limited action" or "Tomlin says he'll be used only if needed" during the pregame show on Sunday. A healthy Parker has enough trouble gaining any yards against good teams. A banged-up Parker seems to only be good for 30 yards a game plus another injury.

I really hope they keep him out until Moore and Russell both prove worthless cause that is pretty much what Parker has proved himself this season. It's time to give someone else a non-half-a$$ed shot at being the #1 RB.

I'm not sure where your willie-hatred has come from but it sure has blinded you to him. Willie was the top back last year IN THE NFL before he broke his leg. He has done EVERYTHING this team has asked of him. When he DID come in that first game, you could see a MARKED difference between him and MeMo (whom I seriously like and want to keep on this team).

Willie has had the same problem EVERY BACK has had who ran for as many yards as Willie did last year. They said they were going to run him till the wheels fell off, and that is exactly what they did.

So give it a rest, let Willie get rested, and you will find that come playoff time, it is Willie on first and second down that gives us the best shot to win the game. I like MeMo on third down and Russel on short yardage. No one gets all the pounding and they all stay fresh.

I don't think Willie should play if he is not close to 100%. He is just hurting the team. Moore has proven he is more than capable of filling in until Willie gets back to normal. We really need Willie for the playoffs (I know we have to get there first) but he has historically not done well against the Patsies and their pass defense is weak. Therefore Moore taking passes out of the backfield is very important this week. I don't hate Willie. I just don't think he is really ready to go.

Willie, do the team a favor and sit this one out. We all know what you can do but be smart and don't hurt the team by going in 70 percent.

I'm with you LV. We're going to need FWP in the last weeks of the season and on our playoff journey. It makes no sense whatsoever to rush him back before he is 100% healthy. Memo, Russell and now Pooper can carry the load until then.
