I think part of the cause had to do with adding depth at CB or maybe somewhere else. That said, Mendenhall should have been inactive to make room for that sport and Plax should have dressed. So yes, just 1 more coaching blunder on top of many others.
The Steelers dressed FIVE RBs. Plax should've taken one of those spots. As for Mendy, if you're going to dress him, play him. He's your best RB. He gained 50 yards on 11 carries the most out of any RB.
