I don't hate him - but, we're lookin at the 2013 draft. How much longer can we hope that he is the guy to finally get it?
A "groove" isn't going to fix fumbling on your first carry from scrimmage. I think that Mendy being the #3 back this week shows that the Steelers aren't waiting for him to be the guy that gets it. Unfortunately, after four different backs fumbling, I don't know if there is anyone that's going to get it.
I think the Mendy ship has sailed.
Maybe the draft produces a "can't miss" guy like Trent Richardson for the Steelers...
