    I think the xfactor for Haynes is his experience at FB, so that may give him a leg up on Russel but either way I think Russel needs some touches to get experience as much as possible.

    I agree , Top, If we are not going to use Russel, why have him active? I thought Haynes gave us some quality work. He can catch and block. And what about the Davis experiment?
    Hell, Let Harrison line up at FB!!

    i don't buy the experience thing at all. I am a huge haynes fan, and have been banging on that give him the chance he is the most "complete" back we've had for ages, ie run. block, catch, yada yada yada... but if he lost his place to someone else then why the hell aren't they playing that someone else?
    Do you just think it's a financial reason they cut Haynes?

    I was always for Parker / Haynes / Davenport / Kreider for our backfield and nothig has changed my mind.

    Davenport able to play

    The Steelers decided to pass on signing Verron Haynes after they determined that halfback Najeh Davenport was healthy enough to play against New England.

    Davenport's right foot swelled after he had acupuncture treatment on it away from the Steelers' facility and not supervised by their medical staff. He had injured his foot while working out on an elliptical machine late last week.

    He did not dress Sunday because of the swelling, then he traveled Monday to Miami for the funeral of his former college teammate, Sean Taylor.

    The Steelers worked out Haynes, their former back who they released before the season. They wanted to have someone ready in case the swelling in Davenport's right foot jeopardized his availability for their game against New England.

    Once they examined Davenport late Monday, they decided not to sign Haynes.
    This is good news, I was worried only having Willie as a RB with experience on the squad.

    Veron Haynes was a good 3rd down back but if we re-signed him then why do we have Naje Davenport. Even though in the past couple games Naje has has trouble getting the first down on third down.
