I simply cannot fathom why so many people cannot wait to replace the NFL's leading rusher. No, he is not Jerome Bettis. But who is? Stop wishing for something that doesn't exist, and pray that FWP makes a complete recovery.
There's a difference between wanting a guy to fail/be injured, and trying to find a positive spin on something when he goes down.
I hated seeing Parker get hurt, and frankly, if it was between the Steelers losing in the 2nd round of the playoffs without him, or losing in the 1st round but having him win the rushing title, I'd probably take the latter of the two for Willie's sake.
I simply think this could make us better suited against the PLAYOFF-defenses in the upcoming weeks.
Parker was a great regular season running back, and I'd frankly love to have both he and Najei running together in the playoffs.
But I think being forced to have Davenport- especially since his legs are fairly fresh from not being run much this year- could be a pleasant surprise.
