    Moore is better than Parker .... much better.

    Mewelde Moore is a much better back than Willie Parker.

    Better hands

    Better blocker

    Better interior runner

    Better shedding blocks

    Better vision

    Better at making people miss




    Thank you ...... that is all.

    Here we go again I knew a thread like this would come up sooner or later, it was way overdue..lol...Willie was doing just fine this year till he got hurt, can we please stop writing this guy off before he even has a chance to get back. We need Willie, this team needs him. We can't have just Moore back there all year long and having Russel in once and awhile. Moore is flat out awesome, he's the best FA pickup we've had in quite a long time and worth every penny we pay him and then some. Russel is coming along and getting better with each rep he gets on the field. FWP is no slouch and let's not start the whole Willie sux thing again. When Parker comes back both he and Moore are going to be a great combo threat in the running game. If anything Davenport is the expendable one and the odd man out here.

    Moore does everything you ask and then some and does it well but give Parker his credit for being a good running back too. Moore has always produced every chance he's got and fortunately for us that trend is continuing but FWP can be and is just as productive when he's healthy. Moore is a much better guy out in the flat and receiving the ball in general and he does see the field well. Parker's stregths are his speed, agility, ability to cut back and he's getting better at running between the tackles. Moore also solid in traffic and sure handed. Everything you mentioned in your post Moore does do a great job at there's no doubt but FWP is not just some slob off the street who can't produce too. Both backs compliment each other well and both are game changers when given the chance.

    the main thing about Willie is that it does tend to take him alittle while to get into a groove where as Moore is generally ready to right out of the gate. Im a big Parker fan and a Moore fan, we need them both. If Parker is playing right now and not hurt who's to say he doesn't have 6 or 7 TD's at this point easily and around 700 yds rushing.

    Ill say it.

    Fast Trippin Parker would be lucky to have 3TDs at this point.

    Moore is by far better than FWP!!! Explain how Moore has 1 less total carry than Parker but yet has 59 more total yards... I'll explain it, YARDS PER CARRY! Moore is averaging 5.0 per carry where Parker is only at 4.0 a carry. As for the receiving Parker has not caught a ball yet so it's hard to compare to Moore's 13 receptions for 70+ yards and a TD.

    I'm all for Moore being the starter and FWP backing him when he gets back, if he ever does! Moore just has more to offer as a complete back and trying to elude a would be tackler... FWP tries to use his speed and if that doesn't work he just falls to the ground...

    of course he's better, willie is a one trick pony and that is just running fast........ willie has never stepped up against teams that are worth a damn defensively, moore has..... it's been so nice seeing a legit running back in there...........

    I like Willie and this is not meant as a bash on him but FWP just has straght line speed, no moves(jukes, slashing)....nothing but straight speed, PERIOD.
    Moore on the other hand has above average speed,so he don't outrun his blocks, better "football quickness" to find openings and better moves to make the first guy miss......and I haven't even gotten to the the part where he actually becomes an option out of the backfield on passing downs.

    boyz, our steelers gotta have that 1-2 punch if they wanna win the big one. we all know steelerville has always been home to the running game. az said it right, and indeed fwp may be backing up moore on his return. but shouldn't we be applauding the possible depth at the rb position the black & gold may soon have back? anyone need reminding of willie's sb record running td?

    find it hard so many are easy to write off poor willy!! big ben gonna need all the help he can get,,,cause we all know the D is gonna get it done. moore for 5, moore for 5...willie for 55!!! gotta love that speed.

    I also remember Timmy Smith had a 200 plus yard game as a rookie in the Superbowl for the Redskins and that was not enough for him to stay a starter.
    No one is writing him off, only making comparisons and the way our o-line has been playing, Moore is the better option now with better moves and vision.
