I say we pick up a reliable HB in FA, such as Legarrette Blount, Steven Jackson, MJD or Reggie Bush
MJD FTW!!!

Doesn't matter. Goodell has destroyed defense and running backs the last few years. Anyone who can keep the run game honest who doesn't fumble or get injured every other game.

My hope is Ben Tate, he would be perfect for this team.

i like the way blount runs but if you guys complain about how mendenhall fumbles, then you really don't want that guy. In 2 seasons he has an equal to mendy's career total

I'll never forgive Bruce Arians for calling the predictable play that caused DJ to whiff on the block which caused Mendy to fumble.

No, its not valid, neither have been the starter for full seasons. But since you like those stats so much, when your allpro was starting (dancing) behind the line, what was his YPC? What was Redmans YPC as his back up? Redman was more productive EVERY YEAR HE BACKED MENDY. However I am not as dunce as you and can realize there were a lot of factors for this better production, playcalling, poor oline play, diff running styles, etc. But you insist on that moronic argument about Mendy's career stats, only you cherry pick the ones that back your argument. Add these stats to yours, who has a higher YPC avg, who has less fumbles, who has more after contact? Mendy loses in all three categories. So instead of picking your fav stats when comparing twi different thing, pick them all. One more point, Mendy's first season as a starter, how did that work out? So comparing first seasons as a starter, both Dwyer and Redman are having a better year since Mendy was broken by Lewis.

Btw, i was very hopeful Mendy was just held back due to Arians, was hopeful he would break out this season and be the back we all hoped for.

Mendy looks like he's still injured to me, wonder why the Steelers felt the need to rush him back so quickly?

Steelers notebook: Haley: Dwyer needs to prove himself as a starter

By Alan Robinson
Published: Thursday, November 29, 2012

Offensive coordinator Todd Haley suggests fumbles weren’t the only reason Jonathan Dwyer couldn’t secure the starting running back’s job until now. When he carries a couple of plays in a row, Dwyer sometimes signals for a replacement.

“Jonathan’s got to show he can take the bulk of the carries without needing a break or taking a few plays off on the sideline,” Haley said. “That will kind of be what defines Jonathan as his career moves forward. He’s getting a great opportunity. We’ve been excited about some of the things he’s done, and hopefully he goes in and takes this role seriously and won’t let us take him off the field.”


maybe coach haley just needs to watch the game on the couch next to you so he can gain more perspective.

will you do us all a favor and loan coach haley all your coaching tapes and play by play grades, so haley can see that dwyer is "just fine" because me and coach haley clearly recall the O-line blocking just fine after a 20 yard run and dwyer tapping out and sending in the now jobless baron freaking batch, as soon as we were gaining steam on a drive?
