    I know that most of you are going to say publically, WILLIE PARKER IS the Steeler back, look at what hes done the last two years! Of course you would be referencing last seasons 1,494 yard, and the Super Bowl seasons 1,202 yards. On the outside, you are going to provide the world with Fast Willie Parker support. Youre going to make Willie Parker sound like the second coming of Walter Payton.

    "Fast" Willie Parker is a decent back. He's pretty quick but can't really take the feature back poundings most RB's have to take.

    Well reading that article and the subsquent posts after it homerism is alive and well, one post is already saying that Parker will go on as one of the best running backs in the NFL not just on the Steelers team...give me a break...

    Willie Parker is a good change of pace back, maybe even a feature back on teams that have a different mentality. The Steelers want to pound the ball, and he can't do that. He can't get those tough 3-5 yard gains consistantly. He lives on those runs where he makes it to the second level and beats them with his speed, he can't do crap against a tough run D that won't let him get there. Don't get me wrong, he's good in fantasy, but his stat lines look like this:

    1 yard, -2 yards, 2 yards, 0 yards, 78td
