    I agree he has value Top, especically in his blitz pickup. He is very good at picking up blitzes which is over looked all the time in a RBs skills. But he can't stay healthy.

    I think of Haynes a lot like I think of Cedric Wilson. They both make like a couple big plays a season, but are kinda "non-noteworthy" all the rest of the time. I don't feel secure with them on the field like I do with say Hines or Troy...

    Same here, I never really thought he worked out like I thought he would.

    This could very well be the last time we see Haynes. If and when he makes the roster, his injury record makes him more of a liability then an asset. We can't just keep players on who keep getting injured, no matter how much we hope they will finally turn it around. Barlow and Najeh need to step it up even if they are backups, they need to prove they belong in the NFL.

    Quality back-ups???

    Verron Haynes-Mostly injured and is known for putting the ball on the ground.

    Kevin Barlow-A head case/locker room problem who hasn't played a down for
    the Steelers and is a long shot to even make the team.

    Najeh Davenport-*See Verron Haynes.

    If we are to return to our winning ways we need a "closer" like the Bus was in 2005. I am not sure if any of these guys can do it, but if the game is well in hand we dont need Parker out there getting killed. I still think that Khun could be more of a grinder( dont think I spelled his name right) than any of the folks we got

    Problem with putting the ball in a fullbacks hands to play a ball control game and eat up the clock is that these guys can't consistently move the chains like Jerome could do.

    Ever see that stat that they used to put up about Cowhers record going into the fourth quarter with a lead. Most of that success can be attributed to the Jerome "factor". He could grind out those tough yards and consistently move the chains in the fourth quarters. That is the part of our teams game that has changed......we don't have a back who can take over in the fourth to eat up the clock IMO. Putting the ball into Davenport or Barlow's hands for a "3 and out" isn't exactly what I would call "closing a game out"! We will have to wait and see what the Steeler's do in those situations this year. A lot of that power running between the tackles also depends on how the O-line is run blocking.

    I guess what I was getting at is "smaller" backs dont seem to grind as well
