    Default Mendenhall officially replaces Parker

    Mendenhall has officially displaced Willie Parker
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 20, 2009 1:47 PM ET
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has confirmed what Fox's Jay Glazer reported last week: Willie Parker has gone the way of Wally Pipp.

    After talking about a running back rotation last week, Tomlin said Tuesday for the first time that Mendenhall is higher on the depth chart. And it seems unlikely that will change anytime soon.

    "It's great to have Willie back," Tomlin said, "but Rashard has the hot hand if you will."

    The Steelers are as healthy as they have been all season.

    Troy Polamalu responded well to his first game action in a month, and the team expects to have the entire 53-man roster available for this week's game against the Vikings.
    "He had no teeth, and he was slobbering all over himself. I'm thinking, 'You can have your money back, just get me out of here. Let me go be an accountant." I can't tell you how badly I wanted out of there." Denver rookie QB John Elway, on Jack Lambert, after Lambert and the Steelers knocked Elway out of his first game as a pro (1983).

    I have my reservations about Tomlin but he has certainly stepped up to the plate on this one.

    This is great, it could light a fire under FWP's ***. I only hope he will respond and make the most of his touches...afterall, he IS still playing for a payday! Despite his performance thus far, (IMHO) he is still dangerous, and can be a nice change of pace!

    Why do I forsee some team grossly overpaying for Parker in Free Agency.

    Sounds like a Browns or Redskins move to me..

    I have a really hard time believing that...he's not been productive in years...and even when he led the league in rushing it was b/c of his amount of attempts...not b/c he was productive.

    Not only will Parker not be a Steeler next year he will probably be out of the league too. I can't see any interest in him at all from anyone. And lets say he does get picked up by someone I see him getting cut in training camp. The dude is just not a good running back, period!
