Suitinam said, "You know, Barry Sanders ran the same way as Willie Parker...he'd run the ball 7 times for 12 yards, then bust off a 55 yarder for a TD. In the end, the results end up just about the same."

Exactly, everyone here is used to our past back (Bettis) getting 3-4 yards, every touch. Willie is a different style back, that we need to get used to if he is our feature back. I tell you Parker is more of a threat, on first and second down, to open up the playbook on middle and outside screens, that Bettis never really was.
Try and stack 8 in the box to stop Willie, get suckered in, on playaction, hit FWP on a screen, and watch him light up the opposing secondary, next season.

I want to see if Staley is able to stay healthy. And I want to know this before the draft. Some much of our immediate future could depend on Staleys health.
I don't hate Duce. Nothing would make me happier than to see Duce get even 800 yards on the ground and 100 receiving. When you wish upon a star...

Okay. Crystal ball. We'll get a linebacker and a receiver in the fourth and fifth round who will become starters by 2008

i see us playing the panters in the superbowl and i see us winning and i see that this time ppl don't have an excues for the reason we won
I hope your right about Staley playing so well. But I`m not sold on Willie sitting just yet.
