This is what Duce Staley used to be...seriously...it's why we picked him up. There was a time when Staley was about as complete a back as there was ion the NFL. Run for power and some speed, GREAT pass blocker, and excellent pass catching back.

Did you hear that comment from the sideline.

Arians indicated Mendenhall was benched for 2 mistakes in practice. One was lining up in the wrong place in a formation and the other was for missing a blocking assignment in practice. This is a tough school. It has lit a fire under somebody for sure.

AllD

I think the team got the message that their backs are to the wall with this game. It is a must win and they are coming out in a big way.
1. Mendenhall is having a career game.
2. Using the backup center as FB on the first TD was brilliant.
3. OL is doing well.
4. BB is a master of execution.
5. WRs are catching the ball and Wallace is coming up big. He is that guy's replacement who is warming the bench.
6. We even got a holding call when Wallace was held, to keep the drive alive.
7. Bringing back Carey Davis has already paid dividends.
8. If we played like this every game we cannot be beaten.
9. Very creative play calling where the pass is opening up the running game, how interesting.

what I find funny is the OL getting all the heat for willie dancing in the backfield,Ben holding the ball and everything.

I know the Chargers run D arent that good

but let's give Mendenhall a fair amount of carries in the near future and we will compare....we will see if it was really all the OL's fault

im not saying Parker sucks...i just think we should not use him as our workhorse as he hasnt been the same since his 2007 injury.

that's just my opinion again...we will see in the near future if other backs can run behind that line but i guess by that time it will be because the OL will be better not because of the RB

Steelers lead Chargers going into halftime, 21-0
Sunday, October 04, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09277/1003097-100.stm

The Steelers played their most dominant half of football since last season and ran out to a 21-0 lead against San Diego at halftime tonight at Heinz Field.

No one was more dominant than the guy who climbed out of the doghouse coach Mike Tomlin says he does not have, halfback Rashard Mendenall.

Mendenhall scored his second TD in the second half, powering up the middle for two yards. He scored from the one in the first quarter.

The Steelers led 14-0 going into the second quarter after dominating the San Diego Chargers in the first 15 minutes at Heinz Field.

Mendenhall, starting for injured Willie Parker at halfback, scored his first NFL touchdown from the one with 11:49 left in the first quarter. He ran hard on three straight runs from the 14, picking up 9, 4 and the final 1 for a 7-0 lead.

The Steelers threw a few wrinkles into their offense on that drive. Center/guard Doug Legursky lined up at fullback and Mendenhall ran behind his block into the end zone. Earlier, return man Stephan Logan lined up at wide receiver.

Roethlisberger came out winging on that 79-yard drive, opening the game with three straight passes, the best a 35-yarder to rookie Mike Wallace.

Their next drive covered 75 yards, and this one occurred in the opposite manner; it began with four straight running plays by Mendenhall and ended with a touchdown pass of 19 yards from Roethlisberger to Moore. Roethlisberger beat an all-out blitz by seven Chargers defenders by flipping the pass to Moore, wide open on the left. The back then powered through two Chargers near the goalline for the score that put the Steelers in front 14-0 with 4:08 let in the first half.

Steelers lead Chargers going into halftime, 21-0
Sunday, October 04, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09277/1003097-100.stm

The Steelers played their most dominant half of football since last season and ran out to a 21-0 lead against San Diego at halftime tonight at Heinz Field.

No one was more dominant than the guy who climbed out of the doghouse coach Mike Tomlin says he does not have, halfback Rashard Mendenall.

Mendenhall scored his second TD in the second half, powering up the middle for two yards. He scored from the one in the first quarter.

The Steelers led 14-0 going into the second quarter after dominating the San Diego Chargers in the first 15 minutes at Heinz Field.

Mendenhall, starting for injured Willie Parker at halfback, scored his first NFL touchdown from the one with 11:49 left in the first quarter. He ran hard on three straight runs from the 14, picking up 9, 4 and the final 1 for a 7-0 lead.

The Steelers threw a few wrinkles into their offense on that drive. Center/guard Doug Legursky lined up at fullback and Mendenhall ran behind his block into the end zone. Earlier, return man Stephan Logan lined up at wide receiver.

Roethlisberger came out winging on that 79-yard drive, opening the game with three straight passes, the best a 35-yarder to rookie Mike Wallace.

Their next drive covered 75 yards, and this one occurred in the opposite manner; it began with four straight running plays by Mendenhall and ended with a touchdown pass of 19 yards from Roethlisberger to Moore. Roethlisberger beat an all-out blitz by seven Chargers defenders by flipping the pass to Moore, wide open on the left. The back then powered through two Chargers near the goalline for the score that put the Steelers in front 14-0 with 4:08 let in the first half.

You notice that since there is no RB or #3 WR controversy, that those players who are responsible for their assignments are executing.

Same thing happened with the clowns and their QB controversy. You think you have 2 QBs, but you really don't have any until you make a committment.

If the coach can't make a committment aka our RBs and WRs, then how do you expect the players to play with any fire. All seems to be correct now.
