Default Thoughts on Mendenhall's Spin Move?

He reminds me of Dwight Freeney.. The guy seems to do that spin move every play. I think Collinsworth even pointed it out a few times Sunday night.

Personally I kinda like it. He seems to be gaining an extra yard most of the time.

I have never seen a 225lb runningback use the spin move so effectively. I'm cool with it, it seems to break tackles just by the sheer shock it gives defenders that a guy so big can turn it up field so quickly

As said previously, I'm fine with it until he fumbles.

r u guys serious. Watching him since the Broncos game, Mendy has really gotten a lot better at his ball security, even when he makes a sharp cut or a spin move. I count 3 times during the Broncos game when he almost fumbled. Since then, i've had a hard time worrying about his ball security

How does spinning increase the risk of fumbling? :S

I think it's all just about ball security and how you hold it. Adrian Peterson hardly ever spins and he fumbles more than anyone.
