Parker will go in as the starter and Duce may get the chance to compete for the starting job but most likely he'll end up taking jerome's spot next year..although I would imagine he'll get more carries than the Bus did this year becuz he younger.

Haynes is a FA so hopefully he'll come back for us, he's a good play maker and outstanding on ST.

We'll draft a RB or get one in FA, there is little doubt of that.

I think wilie is still a work in progress. this is his first year as a starter, and he got 1200 yards. Thats not bad. I think he wore out at the end, but you have to expect that. Next year expect a stronger willie that can break tackles and get those 5 hard yards.

Have faith in Willie!!!

Willie was alot like Ben was last year.. st33lers makes a good point.. willie hasnt played this many games in 1 season till this year... he worn out towards the end similar to what Ben did. Parker was a free agent rookie signing remember so he's been thru alot and has learned alot.. his time in the league w/ the Bus will be invaluable in the future.

He'll be penciled in as the starter, I'd bank on it at this point.

we diffenitly need to draft a running back in the draft......willie can still be the starter but he can NOT carry the load, sure he had 1200 yards but he never carried the load it was a bunch of big ass breaks like the 75 yard dash in the superbowl that makes it look like he's doing badass all the time. hopefully staley will be back to help while we groom a first day running back draft pick.

*tony parker tone* i don't know..................everytime we played a good team willie was nowhere to be seen. i know i'm talkin shit about willie but i like him a lot and don't mind if he's starting but he needs someone to help him out cause even at the beginning of the season he couldn't carry it the whole game.

I think the RB position is open for who ever wants it. I also agree that Parker really was not a factor during the playoffs. I say we draft a RB, keep Willie and Duce, and let it be up for grabs in training camp or get someone in FA market.
