Early this morning, the Post-Gazette’s Bob Simzik dedicated a sizable blog entry to the woeful state of the Steelers running game. He provided an excellent summary of analysis from around the league.
He then commented on Willie Parker’s problems. He didn’t limit himself to Parker’s tentative performance against the Titans, but detailed Parker’s troubles dating back to last season.
Is this the same journalist who devoted a lengthy blog post to taking Steelers management to task for not making Willie Parker a lucrative, long term contract offer? Steel Curtain Rising’s Watch Tower already disputed Simzik’s declaration that the Steelers were “dissing” Fast Willie Parker, so we will not rehash that here (you can click here if you missed it.)
But it is a little ironic that Simzik suddenly is going to great lengths to document recent examples of Parker’s diminished production.
