I knock Parker because he has shown all year he can't pick up the short yds when we need them. He is too small to do it all the time. Sorry, but I'm not a fan of Parker being the RB to carry this team like a lot of people. I like him as a change of pace back but not to carry the ball 250-300 times.
Davenport is averaging 5.1yds a carry and has the longest run on the Steelers. Not too mention he has done well returning the ball too. They need to get him in so he can get into the flow of the game. Maybe you should go back and look at some film too.
The Packers cut him because he was injured last year and they have Green.
Again your faulting Parker and finding no blame with Oline. But then you blame the Oline for Davenports short comings. The Steelers set themselves up for this by putting their faith in Duce Staley before training camp started. Then when Duce proved to be done. They were stuck with the likes of Davenport. You act like he is Jim Brown. Davenport isn't going to save the running game at all.
See what this season is doing to us, everybody is at each others throats.. Thanks alot Steelers
It all comes down to this whole offense being inept in every facet. Willie, Najeh, the OL, the WR's, Qb and TE are all to blame. You can't be successul without every part working in unison and being together.
Najeh could be great but we don't use him enough. The OL could be great if they learned how to block, Willie could be great if held onto the ball and didn't get countless no yard gains and then mix it up with a big long run to pad the stats...at this point everyone sucks and they are all to blame.
Anybody that rated us the best at anything except beating ourselves and underachieving is smoking something seriously good and better pass the bong to the rest of us....
Im not sold that Najeh can't be great until we feed him the ball on a regular basis with a good OL and then see how he does...but this year that's not going to happen as far as I can tell.
I was talking about one play with the o-line and Davenport while talking about short yardage plays with Parker in general. All Parker has shown is he can break a run from time to time and fumble the ball but you act like he is Barry Sanders.
