    Parker Maybe the goto guy inside the 20's

    FULL STORY

    Former starter Duce Staley or third-down back Verron Haynes appeared to be competing for the job, but coach Bill Cowher said Wednesday the Steelers probably won't have such a specialist this season. That means starter Willie Parker might get the ball frequently inside the 10-yard line, something that rarely happened last season.

    "It's hard for me to say when we get into short yardage that we're going to make any kind of change," Cowher said. "If somebody starts to surface and becomes that guy, I wouldn't rule it out, but I can't say right now there's been one person like there was with Jerome. And I don't think that's a bad thing. That's the way it was last year. This year's a different year."

    I would prefer to see someone else in that role, that kind of beating all year I think will wear on his small frame

    This has been mentioned the past few months, I'm not to sure about it either. Don't get me wrong I really like Parker but sometimes I feel he can't break away from that initial hit like a Bus or Staley. I'm sure Fantasy owners are thrilled of the idea!
