Default Mendenhall

Do you guys think hes our RB of the future? I like what he has shown but sometimes he doesnt get enough touches. Parker will be gone he'll want to much money and Moore isnt the answer. I still would like a power back. I miss Bettis

I think Mendy is our RB of the present and future. There needs to be a comitment to the run, which we don't have and a good oline surge. he didn't have either tonight. Or most nights for that matter.

I like him, but i hate the "he didnt get enough carries" comments. he averaged 3 yards a carry on 15 carries. In hindsight, there should have been more passing plays.

There is nothing "wrong" with Mendenhall. He is a warrior. He is being wasted by a pathetic OC. And the HC is standing by blinded by headlights.

This offense has as much talent as I have seen in half a century. Unfortunately it is in the hands of tools.

I had a feeling we were in trouble when on our first 3rd and 1 we went in a shotgun formation and got sacked. Then did the same thing the next drive, but this time they figured Ben didn't need a protector in the back field. Piss poor in my opinion all the way around. It seemed we made no adjustments, and that is amateurish.

What in the hell, are you kidding me? Mendenhall has been the ONE bright spot on our offense. It's nice seeing a RB back there who can break tackles. He's had no blocking to work with during the past few games and virtually no touches - but he's looked good. He did miss a few reads tonight...but lets keep things in perspective - this is also his first year starting.

Plus, he's excellent at pass blocking and a pretty good receiver (minus his awful drop tonight).
