Default What if Willie has a Big season?

This was a question asked to Bouchette during a chat. It made me think what if Willie does have a better season than Mendy?

Please don't roast me like you guys do every other time I ask a Wille P question.

I still think they have bigger fish to catch in Miller, Reed, extending Holmes, and others.

I like Willie too, but if he's looking to cash in...and I wouldn't blame him if he was, I have a hard time believing he will be around after this year.

Regardless...he'll always be a Steeler in our minds.

i think he's history either way...he has a big season, he want's a bigger payday...he has another crappy year... well they have other backs to try... they didn't draft mendenhal to sit behind parker for 4 or 5 more years ...even if he was taken because he was the BPA... BPA's are also expected to be starters eventually.

I can see Parker here in two cases.

1. Mendy gets injured again, or doesn't produce like they want him to. In that case, Parker comes back as insurance.

2. Willie goes into the FO and says, I want to stay here. . . now let's figure out how to do it, and takes a home town discount. Outside of those two scenarios, I don't see him staying, sadly.

I can see him tearing it up this year because knows if he plays well he either gets a big pay day from another team or the Steelers will try to work out a deal to keep him. Either way the Steelers win. I'm just a huge Parker fan.

Parker has made noise about wanting to stay, mainly because it is the Steelers that gave him his opportunity.

So we will see.

I dont take solid talent at RB for granted, even tho good runningbacks are supposedly easy to find. Why are so many people just counting down the days for Willie to leave the Steel City? Who are you so confident in behind the other RB's that would do such a better job? Im aware that he seldom performs well against good defenses, that he does nothing but crank out 1 yard losses between the tackles with occasional 20 yard gains to keep his average honest, but he's well above average. Even if you despise scatbacks. Im optimistic about nearly all of our RB's in the wings. But you can never be too cautious. Let's see what he can do one last time before the curtain of judgement falls?
