Default Mendy only got 97 yards that counted

See... 68 of Mendy's 165 yards were on 3 big plays... 14 yards and over.

Since we are supposed to count how good a RB is only by his short runs... Mendy only got 97 yards or so yesterday.

Why are so excited about 97 yards???

Well Parker rushed for 93 total last week, so I'll take the 97. Personally, I see Parker's career going the same as Barry Foster's. Just look at the numbers of each and you'll see what I mean.

But ... but ... Mendenhall doesn't have that "big play" ability. I thought nobody but Parker had that. Right?

Nope... Seems like Mendy has only big play ability. he can't even rush for 100 yards without big plays!

Other that that, he gets -5 yards, 2 yards, 2 yards.. then 10 yards, then 9 yards, then back to 2 yards. Then 5 yards.

We need someone that can get 4-6 yards EVERY CARRY!!!!!!!!!

BRING ON REDMOND!

You know, you may be on to something. Parker goes 0, 0, -1, 0, -2, 0, but Mendenhall is all over the place. Parker is the much more consistent back this year.

Wow... I would hate to see your checkbook if you think that 0, -1, 0, -2, 0, equals 93 (as it did against the Bengals).

Bounce checks much?

but now we have a distinct look at how good Mendy can be.
and with Willie at 100% and Moore comin in on 3rd Downs, we could be lookin like the Giants with our RBs, 3 different looks
