Default Mendenhall

Was it my imagination or did Mendenhall not do his spin move today. His running looked more balanced maybe the coaches are working with him on this. I think he looked alot better running today.

He did the spin move before he went into the locker room

I noticed a significant lack of the spin move today as well.

He read on this forum that our resident experts disapproved of the spin moves.

He probably saw two things on the tape. First, how he exposed himself with the spin move and that it rarely benefitted his yards gained. He also saw how his habit of loosely running with the ball cost a fumble last week. Maybe he tried to tighten both those things up for the last game of the season.

Perhaps the coaches had something to do with it as well.

I saw atleast 1. on Holmes' pass to him, after the guy picked it off some guy came to block him and instead of making contact he spun. I was laughing so hard.

I thought he looked sharp today...much more decisive. I thought the last couple of games, he looked more hesitant and was dancing a little bit. Much stronger today...FWP also looked very sharp today.

He looked pretty good today.

I really would like to see that one two punch come back next year.
