    Moore is just an all around better RB than Parker

    I've said it time and again, and time and again Moore is proving himself as a much better back than "1yd Willie" Parker.

    Moore blocks better

    Moore catches the ball better

    Moore runs between the tackles better

    Moore picks up the blitz better

    Moore sheds tackles better

    Moore utilizes his blocks better

    Moore has better vision

    Moore is a more intuitive runner (instinctive)

    Moore is shiftier .... fluid hip movement

    Quite simply, Moore is all around . . . more.


    With Parker now as injury prone as he is, I look for him to be the odd man out once Mendenhall gets healthy and show why he was selected #1. With Mendy, Moore, and Russell, I think we have as solid of a backfield as they come.

    He is of no value to this team. Facts are facts.

    He needs to go.

    he seams to be a better student of the opponent all around !!!



    fwp is good too, probably better open field runner

    although i think wp has some years left in his contract and mm has a one year contract

    How 's that? If it wasn't for Morre I don't know what we would of done this tear. No Parker or Mendenhall.

    Oh for Pete sake here we go again with this...

    So if Moore were injured this year and not producing then Parker would be the better back, right? Whatever, all it comes down to is that Moore is a solid back but he's NOT an everydown back. Look at his stats when he's been the starter week after week, they slowly but surely tail off. He's as solid as they come for a reserve guy, 3rd down player, return man, change of pace, guy that can fill in now and then when the starter goes down but he's not a 16 game plus playoff back that is going to get you 1400 yds rushing and 15 TD's.

    Moore has the hot hand and he should be the starter the rest of way with Parker backing him up for the stretch run. You can see by Willie's play that's not 100% and he's not able to do his thing with any confidence. That knee just isn't right fully yet. Moore is healthy and has the hot hand right now.

    Parker is not going to be the odd man out next year man, if you honestly think that then we'll just have to see about it come next camp. They gave Willie a lot of money because he's proven he can get the job done, and let's not forget he lead the league in rushing till he busted his leg 2 weeks before the season was over. Next year will be a battle at RB spot and the chances of them cutting Parker are slim to none unless he happens to get hurt in the offseason or in camp and even then it's slim. First you have to prove that Mendenhall is going to be healthy and productive for the long haul, or have you written him off as injury prone to already?

    I didn't say Parker is odd man out next year but I will say it's going to be a tuff choice between Russell and Morre.

    Moore's place on this team is cemented, I think that's a pretty safe bet. He's as valuable as they come. Russel is going to be the odd man out if anybody is. With Mendenhall back they'll have him to do the power stuff, along with Moore and Parker and that's as formidable a backfield as you could ask for. If anything, it would come down to salary cap issues or something of a financial matter that would seal Parkers fate and allow Russel to stay on.

    Besides, Tomlin isn't going to go into the regular season with a rookie who hasn't played and spent the last year on IR, along with Russel who hasn't carried the load on a regular basis at all and then all you have is Moore as the lone veteran? Wouldn't make any sense if you ask me.

    None of that matters right now though,we still have to get through this season and make a championship run.
