Willie Parker's happy return

Pittsburgh running back Willie Parker said he heard it repeatedly from coach Bill Cowher last week. "I'm not going to tell you exactly what he said," Parker said. "But, to sum it up, he said, 'You haven't done anything in North Carolina.'" Cowher's ploy was to get Parker fired up for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers by reminding him that he was nothing more than a bit player in college at UNC. It worked.
