mendenhall would be the star he was meant to be in the right system. haley's philosophy is perfect for him, get him in space in the passing game and he could be one of those brian westbroook type of players (but bigger and faster)

Great news, and its good to see more fans appreciating what he brings to the backfield.
Breakaway speed and power.......a nice combination of both.
The "dancing" label is just that.....most can be attributed to an ineffective O-line.
This may be the year when our offense is very capable of bailing out our D on a consistent basis whether it be due to injury or performance.

It's good to see him running again, it's nice to have one of our weapons healthy for a change. Do you guys think his performance will be affected by the O-line shuffle we're doing with all our injuries?

I know this is Mendenhalls contract year, but I hope he does the smart thing an gets his proper rest/rehab

Im in the camp that believes Mendenhall has been held back by our atrocious OL over the recent years.....And I hope some way some how I get to see a healthy Mendenhall run with our new OL

Starks-Colon-Pouncey-DeCastro-Gilbert
I'm camping out with you.
The great majority of criticism regarding his tendency to "dance" was mis-directed.
The O line was the guilty party.

Wow, indeed.

As far as dancing goes... you & I have discussed this ad nauseum. [I prefer Ray Rice... yadda-yadda-yadda... neither of us convincing the other.] THAT SAID, I just hope that he doesn't try to come back too quickly.

Cut.. pop... end of career. I really would rather he sit until November (against the Ravens-Bengals-Ravens).

Just like DeCastro, I only want him back at 100%. Not for performance reasons, but for his health.

Mendenhall hasn't been ruled out for week 1? I was reading that his earliest return would be November.....
Shocked....? Mendenhall....what?

Sorry, your signature photo...distracted me and made me lose my train of thought.

People can dislike Mendy all they want.

Other than Rainey, who else at the RB spot won't get caught from behind when they get to the second level? Batch, Redman..neither are home run guys. Mendy is a home run guy. Hope he can come back this year and stay healthy.
