Steelers | Parker will get goal line carries to start the season

Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports Pittsburgh Steelers RB Willie Parker will remain in the game when the team is near the goal line, at least at the start of the season. Until RB Verron Haynes or RB Duce Staley proves they can fill the role former Steelers RB Jerome Bettis filled in 2005, Parker will stay. Head coach Bill Cowher said, "If somebody starts to surface and becomes that guy, as the season goes on I wouldn't rule it out. But I can't say right now there's been one person like there was with Jerome. And I don't think that's a bad thing. That's the way it was last year. This year's a different year."
