View Full Version : Parker rushes back to the top

10-09-2007, 12:16 AM

Parker leads the NFL with 507 yards rushing after his fourth 100-yard game this season. Parker ran for 102 yards on 28 carries Sunday in the Steelers' 21-0 victory against Seattle at Heinz Field.

It was Parker's 17th career game of more than 100 yards, 10 of them at Heinz Field. He had seven in 2006, five in 2005 and one in his rookie season of 2004, when he played briefly until the final game when he ran for 102 yards in Buffalo.

Parker is the only back in Steelers history to rush for more than 200 yards twice, both last season. His 223 yards against Cleveland Dec. 7 were the most for the Steelers.

Parker's reaction to his latest 100-yard game?

"I made some bad reads."

When is the last time a Steeler RB lead the league in rushing i week 5 ? You have to hand it to Willie; with all the offensive line issues this year so far he's still making it work and doing a helluva job for us.

leading the league in rushing means nothing unless you make the playoffs so.....

yup, it's just a pointless stat, when you have the most attempts in the league of course you are gonna be that high in the standings......... all that matters is the yards per carry, and he doesn't lead in that

Pointless or not, makes me proud for us to be so high in the stats (5 games in) on so many things :) By the way--doesn't Najeh lead in YPC? So we can lay claim to that I believe, and our team is ranked # 2 in PA...

Compared to last year when we weren't even ranked in the top 15 on most things, I'll take it :D
