I am sorry you didn't understand my succinct point but you don't have to get angry and tell me to leave. Ignore my posts. You seem to follow me around and bitch about everything I say. You're doing more to hijack a thread by spewing that garbage than what I said. What I said was innocuous and not meant to cause offense. Maybe read into what I said a little more and you might come up with something such as:

"This Ravens fan wants the Steelers to keep Mendy. Why would he? Probably because he doesn't think Mendy is the best choice going forward. "

Maybe there wasn't a lot of substance and argumentation for my feeling this way but for you to bite my head off such a petty reason is sad. I gave my opinion and it's more than what you replied with. Maybe you should be the one who takes a hike. You know, cool off for a bit.

Oh I'm sorry for calling out a Ravens fan who thinks that posting in a Steelers forum that the Steelers should go on with a Running Back that isn't the best option for the team. You're right, I was offside for doing so.

Maybe I just don't like the Ravens and their shithead fans. Post constructively or don't post. If you're going to say stupid things (i.e, I hope the Steelers keep a RB that isn't good for their team) then don't post.

I wouldn't waste my time following you around but you seem to post ignorant and stupid bullshit in most threads which is unfortunate.

Anyway, I think there's better options for us at RB even with a ZBS implemented. Look for guys like Lattimore or Taylor to be drafted as they're both one-cut style 'Backs that can hit the lanes that would (hopefully) be open.

That is your problem, not mine. I love Steeler fans and love conversing with them. I'm not going to let one hot-head ruin my time here. If I were you I'd save yourself the trouble and ignore my posts going forward. See what you're doing to this thread? Next time you have a problem with me just take it to a PM, I'll be happy to address your concerns there. Thanks.

ive seen alot of shit talking opponents fans come to this forum, blast people, flame, act rude and crass.

aa14's comment was as tame as it gets.

i get that some fans dont like the mere presense of opponents fans on our forum, but the board, its admin, and moderators encourage it.

if someones being a dick or stepping out of line (or violating the COC), we will take care of it, regardless of team affiliation.

carry on...

Hey, aa14, I'd appreciate you not PM'ing me spam. Thanks man.

Anyway, I'm done with that guy. So, out of all the possible prospects (Mendenhall included here) I honestly think that we're looking for someone like Lattimore that's capable of making that one-cut and juke that is required in a ZBS. Anything would be an upgrade over what we have now, honestly. Dwyer and Redman aren't cutting it and, if a reasonable deal could be reached with Mendenhall, then he should compete for a spot in Latrobe with a couple of rookies. Make him earn his spot.

Keep him for cheap. Someone mentioned earlier a better zone blocking scheme and the improved O-line talent should hopefully help open some holes on the front lines. A backfield of Mendy, Dwyer, Redman doesn't sound half bad to me. I'd prefer to get a Ryan Mathews like guy out of the draft then run with the 3 above, and I really wish I could include Rainey on the list, curse his damn stupidity.

Mendy is the best option currently on the roster, and I hope the Steelers decide to keep him for cheap and let him avenge his fumble in the Green Bay SuperBowl.

It isn't like Mendy was dogging it in any of his previous seasons-- we always got a good effort from him.

Would be different if he were the only one who fumbled in that game, but he was only the 4th Steelers player to put the rock on the ground in that game. For Tomlin to single him out, and in the end, hurt the team by benching our best option at RB, was one of the few moves Tomlin has made since taking over that I will label as "stupid". It looks an awful lot like a double-standard or total hypocrisy.

Whoever pointed out that it seems like Tomlin just does not like Mendy, is absolutely correct I am thinking.

Granted, a no-show is not the correct way to handle that, but I can't really blame him for his reaction.
Not to mention that if anyone deserved a benching this season it was Wallace. Instead a guy who risked his health to come back early (for whatever his reasons) got benched. I'd be pissed.

He's still "young" but not in Rb terms. If he comes back, I guarantee another injury. Im not saying he isnt talented but hes not that feature back that you could risk money on. The average RB lifespan in the NFL is 2.6 years. He had his decent years but I dont see him contributing consistently again. As stated before, running backs aren't hard to find (silly to say considering our lack of production the last few years). Id let him walk and wish him luck and focus our attention on a young guy in the mid rounds.
