Default The question just has to be asked: if Willie is healthy enough to go Sunday........?

do you start him......................................or go with the "hot hand" in Mendenhall?

i say we go with our tradition: start willie. just have a healthy does of mendy and then whoever is running better gets majority of carries in 2nd half. then re-evaluate it. dont make willie lose his starting job to injury.

I suspect that Parker's injury doesn't "get better" until Mendenhall has a bad game. Until then, he'll coincidentally be juuuuuuust hurt enough to keep him on the sideline.

Or at least, one can hope.

Why bother. Mendenhall is fine, when Arians thinks it's a good idea to actually give him the ball. And with a REAL challenge in Minnesota coming up, why not give Parker and Troy that extra weeks rest?

i say let mendenhall start and sub in willie, i think parker is a good change of pace back, and mendenhall is a good feature back, wen we want outside runs, and someone to scare the defense by threatening to take it all the way, put in willie for a series, but rashard should be the starter....id even go as far as to say we should resign willie for cheaper as a backup, like i said, hes a great change of pace back

i think mendy should start he has way too much productivity to be riding the pine. however, mendy needs to watch some old tiki barber highlights to learn how to properly carry a football.

Willie has a role on this team and if we go anywhere this year, he will be a part of it.

Next year, he will be on another team.

Mendy has shown surer hands as a receiving threat, I think he's definitely showing the potential and think he should be our starter
