Wallace is not coming back. People need to disabuse themselves from that illusion. That doesn't mean Mendenhall is a lock to come back either, though. The recent spending spree could spell trouble for us in lots of ways.
That said, I like Rashard. I think he has all the talent in the world, I also think he would thrive in a more "traditional" offense (i.e., one not operated by Bruce Arians). Despite that - and our god-awful line - he is just a few months removed from a 1300 yd/13 TD season, which is not bad. Physically, he's a near perfect blend of speed and power. Nothing should be holding him back.
He needs to stop the dancing. Pure and simple. I refuse to believe that Dick Hoak would have tolerated this for one second, let alone three games. The coaches need to straighten him out. Another well-timed benching from Tomlin could do wonders for him in the long run.
