Well, maybe he can glorify this number which has been worn by some bad players (Duce Staley, Hank Poteat). :dunno:

In other news I think He will deffanitly beat out Najeh for the No. 2 RB spot.

Yeah especially after what Duce did. I mean Hank wasn't really expected to be any good, but Duce just fell off the freakin table!!!! I mean yes, his laziness opened the door for Fast Willie. However rewind back to 04-05. Duce actually produced before his injury in the New England game in 04 (Wow that game really matter in a number different ways). I hope Barlow can realize what it takes to play RB for the Steelers. :helmet:

I don't know that 22 is unlucky but it sure wouldn't be my first choice if I was Barlow :lol: :lol:

ok duce was a bum after he got hurt, but he was a beast for us in his first year...the duce/bettis duo was crazy.

I think Najeh puts barlow to shame for the #2 spot btw

I am glad to hear this actually, i just recently got a 22 jersey with Staley's name on the back, i can now cover up the name band put Barlow on it and it will then be an accurate jersey.

Dude it wasn't even a full season. It was only 7-8 games and then Duce went down with his hamstring injury. Its a shame to since he would have had a **** load of rushing yards that season.

My only hope is that Barlow or Russell can show enough to fit into the RB rotation.

We had such high hopes for Duce. The guy was a powerful runner with the beagles when he was healthy. He would drag tacklers. He started out strong like you said and then just went to shiat :nonod:

They shoulda gave Barlow #00. :banana: He ain't ****, I don't care if he just got signed for depth or not, hes been in a tailspin for 3 years now. When he steps up and shows us something, then he can have a real number. :lol:
