Why Moore instead of Mendenhall or Parker?

Q: On the Steelers' drive in overtime it was 3rd and 2 they ran Mewelde Moore to the right to try and get the edge. Why not keep Rashard Mendenhal in the game or try to run Willie Parker around the edge?

BOUCHETTE: That, as Mike Tomlin might say, was a head-scratcher. Indeed, Parker and Mendenhall each have more speed and some of Mendenhall's biggest runs have come around right end. Even some players questioned that call, in their own sort of ways, with Hines Ward saying no matter what his coaches call, it's the players job to execute it. Maybe they wanted to trick 'em by calling something even the Chiefs figured they would not run.
