Default Re: Steelers find it's hard to replace a Bus

I think Duce can do it but he's proven the last two years that he can't make it past the 8 game mark. Veron is unproven but has promise. Humes needs to get some stick 'em (from what I've seen in the pre-season) in order to hold on to the ball. Parker's just speed to burn and (imho) not much of the power back that we've been accustom to in the BnG offense!
So maybe we need to take a different approach. It's going to be difficult to find a BUS-like RB so why not "tweak" the offense to compliment the RBs we currently have on the roster.
Yeah, I have to agree with you on "tweaking the offense" a little more. As in maybe involving Heath Miller a little bit more. I think having a good TE like Heath will help in making up the difference for not having the Bus in the backfield for goal line situations.
