Arrow I've Gained Alot Of Respect For Willie Parker

For Willie's size, he sure can take a pounding. There we're some hits last week and throughtout the year I thought for sure would have knocked him out, LOL. But he keeps going and going and going like the Energizer bunny. It doesn't seem like he's lost any speed either, still very quick. I hope he can keep it going this week.

GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6th most productive (regular season) RB in Steelers 72 year history...not too shabby.

I think Willie is starting to come around as a RB. He has a long way to go but I like the progress he has made and showed in the last few games. I hope he can break off a few good runs against Denver.

He adds an element we haven't had in a while...I'd maybe say since Barry Foster.

Willie will be fine. Hes gonna need a dependable back to share some time with though.
I would love to get white but i doubt he will fall to 32.....

Maybe veron will be back. and they could share time.
Veron looked pretty impressive at the end of the bengals game.

he had more carries this year than in his whole college career.

hes young, raw, unpolished, and FRESH.

just like ben did i think willie has tremendous upside in his 2nd year starting.

I think he could be just as good as Tomlinson if used the same way. The only difference is I think Parker is a little quicker. Throw him some screen passes and watch him fly!

imagine him with the colts. then imagine the money the colts could save having him rather than being forced to re-sign edgerrin. that will tell you how valuable willie parker is. keeping him pretty much gives t. polamalu a big contract to keep him.

Willie is only gonna get better in time.. I dont any of us here or any Steeler fan figured he was gonna go for 1200 yds this season . The man is proving alot of people wrong. Fast Willie is gettin it done, there is no doubt.
