Default Re: Wexell reports Mendenhall looked "fantastic" at Mondays practice

I'm not a big fan of Mendenhall and i don't even place him in the top 10 backs in this league, even healthy, BUT....

We absolutely, positively, need to get a running game going and get it going NOW. If we don't, we're going to continue to look at 3rd downs (which the rate of conversion success we're running now is never going to last), and Ben is going to start running for his life again (which we started to see shades of in the Jet game).
Haley's passing offense needs a strong run game to survive, even if we don't run often.

Dont worry, Redman will soon show his suddeness and glide. That will solve everything....or the fans will tout Dwyer as the next Bettis.

I've been saying for two years now that Mendy is our most talented back, hands-down. My opinion has not changed. I'm hoping that in a few weeks time he gives some fans ample reason to issue apologies and retractions here and elsewhere.

I was hoping to see Mendy during the Oakland game. Would of been a good game to see if he ok. If Bush can run on this team, Mendy would have a field day!
