Default Mendy & Willie....

I realize Mendy is our guy...he even plays on 3rd down. ( and he's an animal ! )..but I still think we need Willie..in all likely Willie is gone after this season so who can we get to replace him ?.... it was great having the Bus and Willie those couple years...seems like every NFL team should have 2 good RB's

I wonder what we'll do ???

I don't know...I hate this whole 2-back philosophy. The whole "3rd down back" aggravates me.

I want to see the day when the single-season rushing record gets broken.

Why? All that does is wear out the RB too soon. Giving Mendy the ball another 10 times wasn't going to help him get another 60 yards.

Draft a stud RB for Mendy to take under his wing ??????...the RB subject in Pittsburgh concerns me...with 5 minutes left today I would have loved the STEELERS to been able to run and shove the ball down the Raves throats like we used to be able to

Willie IS a starter in this league...he's going to make some NFL team very happy next year .

I don't think mendy has the experience to take anyone under his wing yet. Although he has potential and I think will be an all star for us, he is still learning the ropes himself.

I too wouldnt mind keeping Willie for CHEAP, if he wants good money, thanks for your services. I think Moore can make a decent #2 RB. Then they can either draft someone else, pick up a decent FA...ORRRR excite some of the board members and being up Redman...look out.

if mendy wants to continue running the way he does another 20 lbs on him wouldn't hurt, it's not like he's running away from guys.
