I never liked Haynes, he was a weak runner, injury prone, and a fumbling machine. Let him go, the Steelers can make better use of the money and roster spot.
Just to throw this out there. Jerome Bettis in his first two years with the Steelers fumbled 13 times and lost 10 of them.
96 he fumbled 7 times and lost 4
97 he fumbled 6 times and lost all 6
After those first two years though Bettis did improve his ball carrying so I'm sure with experience Willie will do the same.
you know what i love about willie? i love the way he ALWAYS cuts back inside to get more yards instead of going out of bounds.....I notice he does that all the time and its great
w. parker > tiki barber. i'll take that for a cheap, undrafted player, if thats what "over rated" means.
as for haynes "fumbling problems" i dare anyone to name a critical mistake he had in a game w/o looking it up (there havent been that many).
everybody just really remembers his last game against cinci.
thats ok though. theres not a single steelers player out there that some steelerfan somewhere doesnt think sucks.
I blame coc face more, but hayne had an opportunity and failed
lol missed that part
but still he wasnt impressive last year when his role was increased, he wasnt impressive in camp, he was a ST contibutor and thats it....he can go sign with the pats or browns with the rest of our outcasts
Willie is far from being considered a tiki barber early in his career with all the fumbles, but the sooner he gets that fumbleitis under control, the better :bigthumb:
