I agree that given the condition of the line Mendy has to lower the shoulder and just get what he can, and I agree Redman is a better back at that, but Mendenhall is a playmaker and we cant just abandon that. I think we need to mix it up, Redman has proven himself IMO, but I dont think we should just overlook the big run capability and previous great games that Mendy has/had already.
So it's the offensive line's fault......big surprise there.......
What about the national debt, should we blame that
on offensive line' as well? lol
Last year Mendenhall wasn't as good as it seemed, either. He averaged less than 4 yards per carry. He racked up the yards, but when's the last time a RB got 300+ carries and didn't get a G?
