Default Rashard Mendenhall Stats

I had questioned Rashards stats against the top competition, so I looked them up on ESPN.com and this is what I found for last season (2007)

vs- Missouri 11 att. 33 yards 2 td's (loss)
Western Illinois 23 att. 139 yards 1 td
at) Syracuse 16-150-3
at) Indiana 27-214-1
Penn State 18-76-1
Wisconsin 19-160-2
at) iowa 15-67-0 (loss)
Michigan 18-85-0 (loss)
Ball State 28-189-2
at) Minnesota 17-201-2
at) Ohio State 26-88-0 (WIN)
Northwestern 27-124-2
Rose Bowl
vs- USC 17 att. 155 yards 1 td

Rashard had huge games against not so good teams like W' Illinois and Ball State but he also had huge games against Wisconsin, Minnesota and the most impressive may have been against a good USC team in the Rose Bowl.

i believe he ran out of a spread offense in college. we will see how that translates in the pros.

It may take him sometime to get used to playing outside of the spread. But, how much difference can there be?

The spread is nothing more than a "qb" option style offense. The QB has the option to hand it off, keep it or throw it. Its not that big of a deal on the ability of a running back. The fact that he's a heavier running back and could still perform out of a spread, which is usually effective with smaller faster backs, shows the guy is a great athlete all around. Lining up in the I formation or as a Single Back isn't what concerns me, I want him to learn the blocking schemes on passing plays and how to get open as an outlet pass on a 3rd down play.

willie parker only had a couple hundred yards in his whole North Carolina career, not to crush dreams but stats can be misleading even though i do believe he will be really good.

I look more at the fact that Rashad is a pure athlete who is very skilled at the position of Running back. He'll hit the hole hard, knows how to read an offensive line while its in motion, the spread requires that, and has a burst of speed that is very deceptive for his size. I look forward to his first carry of the regular season as much as I look forward to Sweed's first TD Catch of the regular season.

took the words right out of my mouth

it's good he had big games against the best teams though, maybe that can translate into the runningback we need to run against the ravens

I can just picture rachard stiff arming ray lewis right now

He will compliment Willie nicely...

He will also extend Willie's career for a few years.

I am still worried about the O line. However, quicker passes and a spread formation should help.
