Default Mendenhall dancing like Parker was?

Is it me or does everyone else see Mendenhall dancing in the backfield like Willie Parker was when he first came back from his injury? There were a few times today that Mendi appeared to have some space around the outside and he just kinda danced along the line instead of turning up and getting some yardage. And of course, Murphy's Law dictates that in the last games that we've seen Willie Parker, he's simply put his head down and accelerated straight ahead as fast he can and gotten good yardage!!! I think these guys huddle up before the game and figure out what they can do to get us aggravated....LOL

Mendy is still hitting the holes faster and stronger than Parker does.

Parker had some nice runs today when he imitated Mendy for once and blasted into the hole instead of doing his Jerome Bettis stutter-step.

Stronger, maybe, faster? No way. At least, when there IS a hole.

When the O line opens a hole, Willie explodes through the hole.

I think the problem is, with his speed, there has been times he has gotten to the line before there was a hold opened.

When I say faster, I mean that he is not stutter-stepping in the backfield before making his run. He is full-speed by the time he hits the line.

I've noticed Willie doing a LOT of stuttering, not only in his few carries this year, but the last couple years. He is not the same running back he was in his younger days when he was like a freaking ping pong ball coming out of the backfield and breaking it to the sideline.

I thought Mendy lost some of the focus he had been showing, but that happens sometimes.. I wouldn't worry about him, he'll be fine next week and ready to take us into the playoffs.
