    Parker seen the toll Arians offense was taking on him without Krieder. I think these today runningbacks are not going to last too long since most teams no longer use a blocking back.

    I wish Willie well.

    I'm quite content with our RB corps of Mendenhall, Moore, Redman, and Dwyer...thank you very much.
    Forced patriotism is an oxymoron.

    A government leader proclaiming that citizens have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or else they shouldn't be in the country sounds more like a mandated decree from a totalitarian dictator like Kim Jong Un rather than the leader of the Free World.

    Our ability to peacefully protest is a fundamental American right, and any attempt by our government to squash this freedom is what is truly dishonoring the liberty that our Star Spangled Banner symbolizes.

    I think that if Willie Parker would have signed as a rookie FA with any other team but the Steelers that he would have gotten cut in training camp and his NFL career would have ended up being nothing more than a blip on the radar screen. The Steelers basically turned a nothing college RB into something NFL RB and Willie should be eternally grateful for that.

    In other words, you think that, without the Steelers, about all Reed would be kicking right now is bathroom towel dispensers?

    The Pittsburgh Steelers: We specialize in bringing in former Tar Heel UDFA's, giving them NFL jobs, and paying them millions of dollars. Just ask Willie Parker and Jeff Reed!

    Did you play football at the University of North Carolina? Does no NFL team want you? Then call the Pittsburgh Steelers today! Operators are standing by...
