Edge is not an option.He is aging,had a big injury (ACL tear),and will cost way too much for us.

Running back is an area that concerns me next year. Duce seems to get injuried too much. I see us either drafting a guy or bringing in RB through FA. Here are the free agent RB's for the upcoming season.

No way we can afford Alexander. Lewis would be affordable and an interesting fit. Don't dismiss the possibility. He was recovering from the knee injury last year so he should be back to full strength this year.

Don't really think he is a criminal. If you look at the government case it was really weak but if the Feds want ya they are going to get ya. It's not like he is a Bam Morris.

10 carries for 93 yards. yea he had a 75 yards, but doesnt that still mean he got 93 yards with a 9.3 ypc?

that run was a game-breaker....

like i said, he hasn't proven he can carry the load, all he could get off was 10 runs and if it wasn't for one run he would've been pointless to have out there. look i like willie but he needs someone to help him cause he can't carry the load. and he's proven that all season long, and the post above the one you quoted touched on that

Bite your tongue! He looks good in black and white stripes and I don't mean being a ref either!

Sure Willie looked great during the first few games this year, we played the Texans and Titans.

I think Willie would benefit from trying some cut back runs. This year he always went between the tackles, once in a while outside the tackles, and they learned to use him on screens once or twice a game. Since we ran so much during the season it really caused playoff teams to come up and play to stop the run which opened opportunities in our passing game.

Next year I'm sure Duce will be a big part of our running game. Two seasons ago his yardage per carry was like 4yds per carry. He's like a young Bettis when he's completely healthy.

Whether Duce or Willie starts isn't really a big deal to me, I do think Duce will get the nod though. Cowher's going to want to see what he can do when he is given the keys.

Also I think we will draft a big back either in the 1st or 2nd, Cedric Hume or Michael Bush.
