The experiment is over. The results are in. Mendy's a bust for a #1 pick - the headliner in a Steeler draft year filled with busts. Because he was our #1, he's been giving every possible second, third and nth chance.

And Bin Laden did mastermind 9/11.
So what exactly did Mendenhall fail to do for you? He was the 20th ranked RB in the league last year for yardage, and #10 for TDs. The year before that he was 7th in yards and 2nd in TDs. He did this behind a line shittier than the one you're all blaming on Dwyers failure, and he did it with no lead blocker under Arians. He did all this with one of the lowest fumble percentages on the list of top running backs.

So, what's your issue with the guy, other than him not having a 50 pound gut like Dwyer?
