The Steelers should have just put Duce on IR weeks ago and brought up Noah Herron to the active roster before Green Bay grabbed him.

Something has to be done about the situation. He has barely played all year. I have to wonder if he will be around next year or if the Steelers will look for another RB via FA or draft.

Even if we cut him, he will kill our cap space. Nobody will pick him up!

I have heard they will be going after a back in the mold of Bettis or Bam Morris in the draft to complement Parker. Duce and Bettis will be gone next year. Haynes will remain the Third down back.

I'm not a big Staley fan myself, but if the coaches deactivate him, it isn't his fault. He is between a Bus and a Fastback. Not his fault at all. But he is too injury prone.

Duce isnt sitting of his own request.. he's being deactivated in favor of Jerome, Willie, and Verron. Duce wants to be out there as much as anybody else and the guy has not said one word about it. Dont let his silence on the topic fool you. This guy loves football and wants to play for the black n gold. If you ask me its a class move for him to not ruffle the feathers of the team but shooting his mouth of like say, oh, Cedric Wilson maybe ??

Duce will get his chance next year to win back the starting job or atleast take over Jerome's role complimenting Willie. Duce still has 3 years left on his contract I believe so dont look for the Steelers to just get rid of him. Sure they'll most likely look to the draft for a young stud back or FA to prepare for the future and to cover thier asses in case of injury.

Thank you, it is NOT Deuce holding himself out or being injured. It's the coaches decision to dress him or not. I can't argue with their reasoning right now, Parker and Bettis are clicking right now and things are going well, why change it. It's nice to have a solid backup ready to go if needed, I agree he's a little overpaid to be an insurance policy, but its a huge luxury to have a fresh, veteran running back that CAN play if needed.

Blitburgh, Deuce only has 2 years left on his deal, he signed a four year contract. I think one way we can gauge what the FO is thinking in terms of the running back situation is if they ask Deuce to redo his deal. If they do that, I feel they are definetly going to be looking for another RB to compete with Willy and Deuce for time. If they keep Deuce at his current contract I think that will give the vibe that he's the man with Willy.
