Default Mendy?

Ok, i know there r alot of mendy fans here, but i am losing my faith in him. Yeah our OL bites, but when MeMo out rushes you you have issues. I honestly believe Mendy could be a good back if we had a decent FB, but we dont and wont. I feel we should save the cap space next season and trade Mendy. Redman has proven himself to me so far, he always goes forward, even with our OL. MeMo showed why we keep him arou d last night. While it would be nice to have that HR fast back, having a Redman getting 3-5 per carry still works for us and will keep defenses honest. I am confused why we didnt use redman more last night after Mendy avg'd 1yd/carry in the first half.

I didnt say cut him, but unless we get a FB, which we wont with BA he doesnt fit, he is a different type of runner than will work for us right now, IMHO

Mendy is just too jumpy with all the different o-line configurations not opening holes quickly for him.

I think he has some sort of mental issue with his game bugging him, because he's shown in the past that he can be great and he has all the physical tools to be a top ten, even top 5 back in this league. Just somewhere around like halfway through last season he became too "jumpy," he used to run hard all the time and now it's like he dances around too much.

If he can learn to stop it, he'd be way better than Redman or Moore and worth resigning, but currently he is not.

he was having a great game in the superbowl until clay matthews made one of the greatest individual effort, impact plays in SB history (and was kinda under-utilized up until that point) and the steelers abandoned the run with him altogether.

teh steelers will likely struggle just to keep mike wallace, let alone be able to pay mendenhall as a top 10 workhorse back (which easilly costs $5 mil/year for a player of his calibur in fair market value).

if anyone is planning on buying a mendenhall jersey, i would say "dont".

The Steelers will keep Wallace. Mendenhall is doing his best to get out of Pittsburgh.

The offensive line just has to block better and he'll be fine. Do you also think that Chris Johnson all of a sudden sucks too now?

True the OL needs to block better, however, Mendy is dancing and juking way too much. He is NOT reading the blocks and he is missing opportunities for small gains and getting dropped in the backfield. The holes arent huge but sometimes a RB has to ower his shoulder and make a little something out of nothing and Mendy right now appears unable to do that. Let Redman play vs Houston, and see if if brings anything different to the table. My guess is those no gain and 2 and 3 yard losses by mendy end as Redman runs hard and gets at least a couple of yards when no hole is there.

As for Johnson, he has missed all of camp with a holdout, typically RB's start slow when that happens, hopefully he will still struggle when we play them in a couple of weeks.
