    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.

    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?
