Ya; so what you suggest is to keep drafting o line when we have invested 2 picks this year. Honestly; you could put the hogs up front and these 3 backs couldn't run with them blocking. In reality to the op's question. You have no choice but to give mendenhall another chance. Those other 2 are completely useless and they fumbled too in the cleveland game. Tomlin; get off your horse and give the guy a chance; the season depends on it.
