Nice post and I agree....All the OL worth a damn were gone...Even the over-rated ones like Otah and Cherilus were gone.....Mendenhall was tremendous value at 23....Plus if Parker goes down again we finally have a quality replacement....Dookie didn't cut it and Moore isn't a starting RB if Parker did go down again...I liked the Moore signing but Mendenhall can catch out of the backfield also...I think Moore will just be a return man now and just serve as more RB depth...Would be shocked if Dookie makes the team now....
I can never fault the Steelers for taking best available and the Steelers did that with Mendenhall...
