Fred Taylor

Well, folks, it does suck majorly for both Willie Parker and the Steelers that he broke his leg in yesterday's game against the Rams. Their playoff hopes are all but shot to smithereens now.

However, this now means Parker won't be able to play in the Pro Bowl. Fred Taylor, who really has had one hell of a season, was, admittedly, a snub for the game. Now, he may just be able to play in Parker's stead. Anyone know if Taylor got fourth most votes among AFC running backs? If he did, that would be awesome.

Not that I'm a Steelers fan, but NEVER say never.

WTF are you talking about? The Steeler are actually better off without Parker. IMO, Davenport is better.

Yeah, running for 100+ yards against the Rams is a real achievement. If he can do that against the Jags, Colts, or Pats, then I'll be impressed.

That being said, if I was Fred Taylor, it'd be a shame that this would have to be the way I got into the Pro Bowl...but nonetheless, I'm finally there.

How 'bout we see if Mr. Davenport can do it next week...against the Baltimore Ravens. In Baltimore. Knowing the Blackbirds a/ are still steaming at having given the only winless team in the NFL their first win--and make no mistake, the Ravens DID GIVE that game away; b/ might still be carrying emotional trauma with them over the way they let a near-upset of the mighty Patriots get away from them--and bear in mind they damn near won that game on emotion alone; and c/ still have revenge on their minds for having been run over, run down, knocked down, and flatlined in the MNF throwback night game earlier in the year.

That said...Fred REALLY deserves to be voted in. Even if it's as an injury substitute. BUT...even though the greater fan populus may not know Taylor from Joe Blow down back off in the alleyway somewhere, I guarantee you people in Jacksonville--and ON Jacksonville--know just how valuable FT28 is to the team. Direct from MJD32: "Fred Taylor IS the Jaguars."

Few truer words have ever been spoken.

For the record....I believe that was the first time that happened this season.

Just sayin'
