    Why should Willie be the starter????

    I will personally be pissed if Willie comes back this week and sucks it up and stays in the game.

    3 years ago he was a stud, not so much lately!

    Mendy had a good game (1) yes, but he showed the ability to run defenders over, something 39 hasn't be able to do.

    Will we use them as a double headed "monster"?? Or will one get the bulk of the carries??

    Not sure about the "starter" tag, but at this point the carries should be evenly divided amongst Willie, Mendenhall, and Moore. That's were the league is headed and it seems as if the days of the feature back are numbered.

    Not here, when he's healthy it seems he's the work horse.

    I'm sure I'll get flamed, but I don't see it in Parker this year!

    Perhaps tradition will keep the Steelers from changing.

    Tomlin has a good thing going with our RB's. We finally got a chance to see Mendy in action and his potential, but don't forget it was against a banged up Chargers D. Time will tell, Tomlin will make the right decision based on his gut, not popularity or what anyone else says.

    I agree, he has no problems putting his players in their place, and I take my hat off to him for that.

    I know Willie will have more chances, but I hope he doesn't hesitate to pull him if he is struggling.

    The next two weeks could be big running games, lets test them out!

    It was nice to see Mendy look confortable catching the ball
    He could be helpful in non-obvious passing downs (3rd & Long)
    just like having Moore run on 2nd and short with 4 WR formations.
    I think Parker is done as the "workhorse" since the league looks like it's leaning to the 2 back system in lieu of 1 back " Workhorse " mentality.
    Willie might be back next year

    I'm OK with splitting the carries!

    Hit the hole Willie, his silly little moves drive me nuts!

    One game doesn't a make a season BUT Rushard did finally get a chance to show what he can do. Would FWP have had the same success? nobody knows... He did make a great showing and finally showed why he was a first rounder

    Reasons Why Rashard Should Start

    Better Blocker - Rashard
    Better Tackle Breaker - Rashard
    Better Running Between the Tackles - Rashard
    Better Catching Passes Out of the Backfield - Rashard
    Better Short Yardage - Rashard
    Faster getting around the end - Willie


    I have it at 5 to 1 for Rashard. If either back is going to get more carries than the other it should be Rashard.
