Default We move the Ball with MeMo in the Lineup better than the other two backs

I've seen it over and over again. MeMo brings something to this offense that Parker and Mendenhall do not. The guy does not go down on first contact. He blocks great. He always seems to get an extra yard or two...other than on 3rd and 1's :>).

He's not fast. He's not a Bruiser. He just gets it done.

I love MeMo!

i think we would be fine with mendenhall as the starter and memo as the 2nd back..
Trade parker for a draft pick or a veteran olineman?

Dont get me wrong. I do like parker and he can be a great back... But damn... hes gotta do something

Part of it is the line, though, not just the backs

Actually, nobody did anything. Parker had one decent push where he moved the pile. MeMo had one decent run breaking a tackle. Mendy had one decent run spinning and turning.

MeMo helped because he can catch the ball.

Willie looked timid, and is missing major burst to his explosion. Mendenhall turns his back to the defense and needs more work and better wake up quick. Me and my brother were talking and as of Sept. 10th 2009, Moore is our best back.

Admittedly, I am a little jealous of what I see Tennessee has with Johnson as their RB. He's what I thought Mendenhall would be.

And of course, we can expect Mr. U.F. Nuckle to show up in this thread at some point...

MeMo looks better because he is always in for the 2 minute drill and the hurry up offense, which coincidently is when Ben is at his best, because he is improvising and calling alot of his own plays. Not to mention spreading things out.

well if tonight was any indication , which is basically a continuation of last year ,, the steelers are going to have to be a pass first team to win games ...but the good news is, everybody is locked up for a few years but colon, which i'm sure he'll get a 5 year deal , so Ben will get his chance to earn his money....
