Just to throw this out there. Jerome Bettis in his first two years with the Steelers fumbled 13 times and lost 10 of them.
96 he fumbled 7 times and lost 4
97 he fumbled 6 times and lost all 6
After those first two years though Bettis did improve his ball carrying so I'm sure with experience Willie will do the same.

you know what i love about willie? i love the way he ALWAYS cuts back inside to get more yards instead of going out of bounds.....I notice he does that all the time and its great
w. parker > tiki barber. i'll take that for a cheap, undrafted player, if thats what "over rated" means.
as for haynes "fumbling problems" i dare anyone to name a critical mistake he had in a game w/o looking it up (there havent been that many).
everybody just really remembers his last game against cinci.
thats ok though. theres not a single steelers player out there that some steelerfan somewhere doesnt think sucks.
I blame coc face more, but hayne had an opportunity and failed
but still he wasnt impressive last year when his role was increased, he wasnt impressive in camp, he was a ST contibutor and thats it....he can go sign with the pats or browns with the rest of our outcasts
Willie is far from being considered a tiki barber early in his career with all the fumbles, but the sooner he gets that fumbleitis under control, the better
