The problems are many. Excessive injuries. Poor offensive line play that doesn't open holes or block very well. Dumb playcalling. None of the backs being constently good. Tons and tons of dropped passes. And so on. SO much more here to blame than our QB.
Mendenhall's best season would have been good enough for 7th in the NFL this year.
Mendenhall has been part of a pass-first offense that lacked a true fullback his entire career. Still has a couple thousand yard seasons and a 4.1 ypc. He is also good at picking up blitzes and catching the ball. I would grade him a "B" and look elsewhere to improve the team. I hope he is back healthy.
What is this "2nd tier" garbage and whose words are you speaking? Clearly you are regurgitating what someone else said.
"Yeah! Let's get rid of him over his tweets! If everyone else hates him I hate him too!"
