I LOVE it when we give the number of a recently departed FA who left for big money to a rookie replacement.

Hail to the new 66 whether he turns out to be a starter or not.

mendenhall looks more like a 23 to me maybe because he was picked 23

with mendenhall with 34 it makes me think of him more as a fullback i am not sure it just seems like he should have a lower number.

23 would have been a cool number for mendenhall.

I've never been a fan of WR's having numbers in the teens. Not sure why, just never have. And Mendenhall I think may be able to be as productive as Bettis, but won't have the same power as Bettis.

34 is a very tough number to wear. Lots of HOFs wore that number throughout the history of the NFL. Very high expectations now for him.

Was hoping that Bruce Davis would take # 55.
Seems like he may grow into the Joey Porter mold for that jersey number.

Mendenhall's choice is interesting. Any news on why he chose that #?

Should give Mendenhall 22 so that we can ignore the Duce Staley Sideline Experiment!

I'm sure Terry Bradshaw wouldn't mind a rookie wearing his number. :thumbsup:

I'm pretty sure Bradshaw's #12 is unofficially retired.

I think that the number 34 should be good for Mendenhall. I would have given Sweed 80 instead of 14. I don't .like WR's with a teens number. I know Mendenhall can't have 35 cause Dan Kreider still has 35.
