both are young, unpolished, and with some of the greatest upside in the nfl. i throw i. taylor, w. ried and our new safety smith into that unpolished class. the steelers coaching staff are like jewelers.
I agree Tony, I really like Willie Parker. I think he builds off of last year and really has a better year this year. I'm thinking 1400 yards to along with 7-8 TD's for Willie this year. I think at times last year Willie followed the orginal hole instead of maybe cutting it back for a big gain. I see more of Willie's natural instincts taking over this year.

I think Willie will be stronger this year after having started for a season and seeing what it takes. If he's smart,.. he's worked a little harder to be prepared. Will he be an everydown back for the entire season ?,,...doubtful,... but i think he'll put up slightly better numbers and be little more durable. As far as Veron goes,...if it ever comes to the point where he's starting we are in trouble in a major way. Meaning Duce (his health) is THE x factor on the ground for us this year. The funniest part to me though is,...if the Ben, Hines, Heath and Santonio play up to their potential we could be almost "Colts Like" in regards to scoring.

I like what I`m reading and could not agree more! Lets hope that this is all pans out, if so we have the makings of a great offense for along time

IMO Willie has to show me a few things befor I can accept him as our starter. I would love to see the mentoring and coaching from last year make him a better player this year. Don't be suprised to see Duce in the same role as JB last year. A healthy Duce will be an awsome combo.
