Ben throwing it for almost 50 times on a shattered ankle just doesn't sit right with me. It's not like we were down by 30 to abandon the run at any point. I actually thought Mendenhall has a decent game. Should have fed the backs more to atleast keep the defense honest. Mendy averaged 4.3 yards on only 15 carries with a gimp QB.
Mendenhall was running with purpose tonight, and more of it would've been nice. BA's playcalling was terrible though. Everytime Mendy gained more than 5, he ran it again. And every time, he was stuffed.
