Default Why all the Willie Parker hate?

Is it me or has the majority of Steelers Nation turned their back on Fast Willie? Can someone explain this to me? I mean come on the guy has been hurt. He's doing what he can. Has he done,or said something that i missed? The guy is a Steeler,has helped win a championship,but he gets no love. What gives?

He's not an "ultra back" who can do everything. That's pretty much the gist of it. So in their minds, he must be benched or replaced with a career backup like Moore. No disrespect to Moore, who has done a great job when he's been called upon, but he is what he is.

As you said he is hurt and is doing what he can, but he is not the most productive RB currently on the roster.

Thats not hate, its an objective analysis. Nothing more.

That was in 2005.

In 2005 Shaun Alexander was the league MVP. He is no longer good enough to make an NFL roster. And therein lies the point.

He (Willie) also wasn't hurt during that run. He will restore himself eventually.

Willie is just getting healthy - I predict a 200 yd day against the flying thumbtacks




let the haters go die in a fire

Thats great and probably true. But that probably doesnt help the Steelers between now and the Super Bowl.
