Re: What to do with the backfield....
BUT I would admit that Mendenhall had no hesitation yesterday finding the holes and running north and south.(when he had no holes running in Kemo's back in 1st half,he kept his feet moving and found the hole for a gain of 5 instead of a loss of a yard)
on the Willie's contract situation
I would love to keep our RB stable like that at the end of the year but I know Willie might want to start somewhere else(although not guaranteed someone will pay for a guy who is always injured)
on the way I would deal with the situation right now
I think we make a smooth transition,next week I think they cannot put Mendenhall back on the bench.They've benched him because of his lack of attention to details,now the following week he had an incredible week of practices and played a heck of a game.Now what you're telling the kid ? Sorry kid you did everything that we wanted you to do but it was just until Willie cameback now go back on the bench we will give you maybe 5 carries today if you're nice?
No you dont do that you tell Willie look,you've been injured you're still bothered by that turf toe...Rashard will be the starter we will give him around 15-20 carries you might get 10 depending on the pace of the game til you get healthier.Then if the kid keeps running with a lot of purpose you guys will split carries depending on situations.
that is how i'd do it
