After this I hope for a showdown between Coach Clique and the Rooneys, in the offseason and I hope it gets ugly.

I do, but only with the hopes that some positive changes are made. I am a big Tomlin fan, but I also won't overlook his mistakes.

I meant Coach Cliche, but you know, I think Coach Clique is far more appropriate.

Mendy will NEVER be a power back, so stop trying to use him as one.
Dwyer CAN be a power back as can Redman and they just need time to develop.

But there has to be a way to use ALL of our backs in different ways - ways that best utilize their individual talents rather than using all of them the same way.
Maybe they think Rainy will fill mendys position?

I can't say I am a fan of mendehalls play, but I feel there is a lot of talent going to waste. I was really hoping he'd come back and tear it up.

This team better win Sunday or it's about to unravel. Wallace talks of losing focus, Keisel and others say they weren't ready to play last week, and now this.

All we need is Bobby Shaw and his Superman shirt.

I've been wondering what they think of Rainey all year and I still don't know. This guy needs touches in space. Haley has failed in that regard.

Would explain it.
Prior to the announcement of the suspension Ed.B. had indicated earlier today Mendenhall was having issues

Ed, has the coaching staff completely forgotten Mendenhall's career stats and performance against Philly earlier this year? He's by far their most talented back with big-play ability. Can't say that about the other guys...

Ed Bouchette: He hasn't shown it much, and they don't believe his head is in the right place
....

What is the deal with Mendenhall's "head being in the right place?" Is it just an effort/interest thing or is there more at play, like an anxiety disorder, for example?

Ed Bouchette: I can't tell you exactly, just what I was told.


Meanwhile the agent spins away

Mike McCartney, Mendenhall's agent, said the player will serve his suspension and then return to them next Monday in good spirits.

The suspension will cost Mendenhall $41,176, which is one week's (1/17th) worth of his $700,000 salary.

"What's happened, happened," McCartney told the Post-Gazette. "When I spoke to Rashard, I know he is very excited next Monday to rejoin his teammates. He's going to come back with great energy to do everything he can to help the Pittsburgh Steelers win football games."

he is a fumble or broken bone waiting to happen.

thats not saying much in regards to our other backs (or team) but atleast the other players arent a few biscuits shy of 170 lbs and able to protect themselves somewhat.
