Default Mendenhall Fumble Issues

I just had te pleasure of watching the 10 min game review of the Steelers game on NFL Network on Demand. You notice things that you might miss in the game.

One thing I noticed is ...

Forget it. I've changed my mind. Each time you watch over, you see new things. I think he was appropriate.

Coaching staff might be telling him to use more caution because we don't have #7 playing qb also. Turnovers from our offense will hurt us a lot more without our star QB.

That's true. One more turnover would've killed us last week. It is a risk reward thing.

If he gets to being hiself though, he is going to break some big ones.

i think the fans just wanna have the most perfect and bestest player at each and every position.
noidea:
its simply not going to happen, especially in this day and age of salary cap.

im just glad to have the best defense whose capable of winning 2 sb's in the past 5 years.

I have edited because when I watched it again, I could see why he decided to use two hands.
Feel free to lock this thread. Thanks.

On the game winner he was carrying it like a loaf of bread. Hopefully he fixes that.

That's when he runs the best...when he uses one hand, uses the other hand for ballance, push off, etc.

If he fumbling he isnt running his best. A fumbling rb doesnt last long in the NFL. Even Tiki Barber was able to fix his problems.

He needs to find the right place between an acceptable number of fumbles and a point where his explosiveness, balance and jukability is not limited by wanting to use 2 hands.
