    Wish him all the best in his retirement, even though he was at the end of his career when he arrived in Pittsburgh he still had a great burst and was a pleasure to watch carry the rock in black and gold.

    Yep. Alongside his play on the field, his Halloween outfits were awesome.

    D Will is a quality player, professional and played well when called upon. I wish him continued success going forward. Grateful he came to the Black & Gold...

    I was shocked he wasn't picked up by a desperate RB-starved team in '17. He still had some gas in the tank, IMO.

    I would have liked to see him matched up with fichtner as his OC as he was in college one more time. Thanks and good luck d-will. :cool:

    Thank you Delangeo Williams for all you have done! :)


    Your abilities were needed most for us Black 'n Gold faithful when Bell was not able to answer the call. You did so and performed your role to the fullest.


    Please enjoy your life after football and thank you once again!

    We would have if he didn't get injured. If he was our running back against Denver a few years ago we are in the super bowl and win it. We were better than Denver despite the injuries. Stupid fumble lost us a Lombardi.

    I want to disagree. we didn';t have denvers defense. their offense was putrid but did enough because of their opportunistic stifling defense. If we beat Denver we probably would've lost the week after, and that team probably would be sitting with 6 right now.

    There's one problem with your theory. Steelers would have played Patriots the following week without Bell, Williams... and possibly AB. There's no way in hell they win at Foxboro. They can't beat the Patriots at full strength, much less without their best skill players.

    You're right. I completely forgot we would have had to go through Foxboro. I guess you never know but that would have been highly unlikely down AB and Bell.

    Really enjoyed his time with Pittsburgh. Wish it would have been longer.

    I wish the same... Would've been nice to get him a few years earlier. I prefer his style to Bells... All day long.
