Default What about the old guy?

What about the old guy?
NFL from the sidelines

After hobnobbing around the NFL in the press boxes and sidelines, sports reporter Dale Lolley will let you know the insider scoop.


It hasn't taken the media long to fall in love with rookie running back Frank "The Tank" Summers and everybody knows the Steelers expectations for former No. 1 pick Rashard Mendenhall, but what about the starter, Willie Parker?

Parker's coming off an injury-plagued season that he called a personal disappointment and is heading into the final year of his current contract.

It's interesting that he's gone from everybody's favorite underdog to the guy everyone wants to forget about, despite the fact he's been the team's starting running back during two Super Bowl runs.

This will probably be Parker's final season with the Steelers - unless Mendenhall proves he can't handle the starting job.

But I expect a big season out of Parker in 2009.

As expected, Larry Foote was released today.

"Larry has been a big part of our success, but unfortunately the realities of the salary cap made this decision inevitable," said director of football operations Kevin Colbert. "We wish Larry and his family nothing but the best as he moves forward with his career."

If Willie can stay healthy he's our guy for this year and next. I can't recall the last time we've had a guy who was a threat for the endzone on every run. Dang he is fast...
