Default RB

Can I just say I am a little sad that we picked up Mendenhall last year? I would love to see Pittsburgh be able to take a stab at Lesean McCoy late in the first round this year. Anyway.....hopefully we'll be able to pick up a solid offensive lineman to add to Ben's protection for the upcoming seasons

I think Rashard is going to be a lot better back than lesean. He is more of a two headed monster than lesean could be. I hope Mccoy has a good year but i dont think he is anywhere near a first rounder.

Rashard is a big boy and can move pretty well I still feel he will be the best back out of this class. I i would like to see the steelers get someone this year it would be Shonn Greene out of Iowa big strong boy with some legs.

Yea I pretty much agree with you on Mendenhall. I guess I'm just a little bitter because I'll be attending PITT next year and I wanted Shady to stay another year so I could watch him really hit his stride in the NCAA

I agree that Mendenhall will turn out to be what the Steelers need...moreso than McCoy. LeSean is another Parker...and as good as Parker can be at times, we need a big guy to push the pile on his own from time to time. We won't be able to replace the ENTIRE O line through the draft/free agency, so a couple of those bums are gonna hang around and we need a big back who can kill clock and keep a drive going.

Mendenhall will be that and more...

Larod Stephens is another kid they had from around where i grew up. (They played in the division my high school does know.) Good fast runner once Lesean came on campus he didnt get a pile of action. Pitt has been doign some decent recruiting. Im more of a Note Dame fan myself but still follow Pitt a little.

Yea I have high hopes for their recruiting classes in the upcoming years. I will be buying season tickets for next season so I hope they can produce another top 25 team without McCoy...

I really believe that Rashard Mendenhall will be a nice back for our future. He does have good size and good speed for his size. I just hope that he works on hitting the hole with his head up and looking ahead better/more.
