...that not having Jerome will totally destruct our running game. I suppose the so-called experts on ESPN don't recall that Willie gained around 1,200 yards. Jerome was a great story and deserved to go out like he did but to this team he wasnt a guy who was making any game changing plays.

(I give him full credit for that sweet game against Chicago though. That was 100% Jerome)

Give up on ESPN my friend. They are worthless.

i'm not sold on willie cause he's still only a back that can break a few to make it look like he had a good game, but not having jerome won't hurt. and espn sucks, i only watch it to see highlights but don't listen to any of the analyst cause they don't know ****, long live fsn lol

I've started watching the Nightly Sports Call this summer (UPN at 10:35) and it's better than SportsCenter and NFL Live and they gave some great stats about Willie last year compared to the Bus in 2001 when he ran for over 1000 yrds

You can't really compare Willie with the Bus. Their styles are way too different. Both have their good and bad sides. I liked having both of them. But I do think Staley can more than fill Jeromes shoes this year.

Well he hasnt proven much while hes here in Pittsburgh but when he was Philly he was good and I think if healthy then hes a helpful player to this team.

He might have some weird stat lines like Jerome did...something like 3 touchdowns on 15 yards.

He carried us in the Green Bay game last year when we needed him. I have no doubt he could of played the end of last year if they needed him. He also dominated for us his first like 8 games before he got hurt. I'm liking Staley right now coming in fresh and healthy.

Yeah he's had a hell of a long time off to get into shape so hopefully he gets a good rhythm in the preseason.

Preseason games are going to be really important this year with Duce and Ben both needed to get a rhythm.
