Default Re: Wexell reports Mendenhall looked "fantastic" at Mondays practice

Cut.. pop... end of career. I really would rather he sit until November (against the Ravens-Bengals-Ravens).
I like Ray Rice as a RB, I just think those that criticize Mendenhall as "dancing too much" are as biased as the group that say "Arians threw bubble screens on 3rd down all the time".

Mendenhall is a cutback runner that is patient in picking a hole. When the Steelers O lines of the past had opened no holes.....he eventually gets tackled plowing into the line or from behind.

I would be concerned if he came back too soon, but think if he has a FB lead or a better O- line scheme of blocking, that he will have a great year. Loss of DeCastro hurts more than we like to think.
once a sandwich artist....soon to be Sack Artist.
