Running back Willie Parker has been named AFC Player of the Week.

Playing in his first regular-season game since breaking his lower right leg last December, Parker rushed for 138 yards and a career-high three touchdowns last Sunday.

The fifth-year veteran averaged 5.5 yards a carry in the Steelers' 38-17 win over the Texans.

haha, and he did it in three quarters of work, essentially. Better trade him while his value is high. :roll:

No kidding. That should shut everyone up for a bit. His last game last year he was leading the league in rushing (I know...its deceiving, rushing yards aren't the only measure) and his next game he is leading in TD's, near the top in yards and player of the week. I think he's pretty good.

Congrats to Willie and the O Line! :tt2 :tt1 :Clap
