mike wallace finishes 5th in the league in rec. yds. he fell short of being the 1st player in eons to lead the league in in YPC for 2 consecutive years in their 1st 2 years, but still had an otherworldly 21 yards per catch (2nd to d. jackson). his 10 td's tie him for 7th. not bad considering most teams start 2 wr's and a te.

ben finishes 6th in yards per game and 5th in passer rating. he also finishes 3nd in yards per attempt and only tom brady had fewer than his 5 interceptions. had he not been bogusly suspended he almost certainly woulda had another 4000+ season.

mendenhall was 7th in rushing yards and tied 2nd with 13 td's. his 20.2 attempts per game rank him 5th (a true bell cow back in todays nfl).

kudos to arians who showed improvement from last years "mad scientist" attempt of a season and utilized his weapons better and gameplanned a bit better. we thrashed the likes of OAK, TB, CLE, and CHA. last year we were losing to those likes in heartbreakers which cost us a playoff bid.

Ben played very well yesterday. Granted it was against a bottom feeder but his passes were right on the money. It's a very good sign, now that we're in the playoffs. I would have liked to see a stronger performance by Mendenhall. I'm not talking about his TDs, I'm talking about his running numbers.
