Mendy was nothing special.

Glad he's gone.

Shame he hasn't really bounced back from that terrible ACL injury.

He did have a few good years before the injury.

Adrian Peterson had an ACL too, right? So I wonder if there is a certain threshold of severity where it is simply harder to come back.

It's amazing how someone's career (sports or otherwise) can change in the blink of an eye.

well the entire medical community has pretty much conceded that Adrian Peterson is a once in a lifetime special freak of nature.

They're not regretting this move nearly as much as they are regretting the decision to release Thaddeus "the Potential" Gibson. :sofunny:

OTOH they might wish they could reconsider letting Keenan Lewis go - he was on Wallace much of the night

Adams is the clear leader for most disappointing Steeler of 2013 but Cortez Allen is at least a semi-finalist for that title

Agreed.

However I wonder if his superior work ethic and determination played a part as well.

It sounds as though Peterson was blessed with more than just amazing genes.

His skill, work ethic and resolve solidify his celebrity among far-off observers. His humility allows him to carry it as adroitly as he does a football every Sunday during the fall, according to those familiar with him on a more personal level.

I hope he does well. That means the Steelers would get a higher draft pick from him.

Yeah pretty much.

And its those type of players that wind up in organizations that don't know what to do with him or surround him with good talent.

Kind of like Lebron in Cleveland.
