Actually, I read some sincere, genuine kudos for Mendenhall in the other thread. It was a pleasant surprise.

He did have a good game, hit the hole like Redman did last week. He seems to respond well to being on the bench.

He ran with more authority because he saw what Redman did when he was on the bench. You could see him just wanting to get on the field.

This is his contract year right? I don't think he makes the team next year if so.

people do realize that mendenhall was injured and not "benched" right?

he left the game vs the titans right after an excellent TD run.

He's the best back on our roster- I love the way Redman finishes runs, but I don't think he's quite as complete a back...I want them BOTH on our team and to run a 2 back system.

Arians regards the bubble screen to a WR as his version of throwing to a back - simply throwing to a RB is too simple a play for the superior intellect of BA

mendy is the best back we have had in the backfield for MANY moons.......All the people that think redman is the answer were proved wrong this past week. Redman would make a great short down back or even fullback. 3 yards and a cloud of dust just dont do it in this buisness. Redman just cant hit the homerun like dwyer or mendy, its as simple as that. Mendenhall will get paid at the end of this year "by us" or we will be leaning to much on ben for next year.......
