Mendenhall doesn't fumble nearly as much as his reputation suggests. It's unfair.
I believe this all happened way before Ben hurt his ankle

you musta been in the booth to have such info

as far as fumbles carry the ball like Mendenhall does and you will fumble, and maybe in the big one at game time like the last Super Bowl

if you get hit right before you can even get a handle on the ball, chances are it will be a fumble too. that super bowl fumble had more to do with david johnson blowing his blocking assignment more than anything else.

Huh? They're talking about the 4 goal line runs. That was well after Ben was injured.

I do think that Redman is at least as good as Mendenhall in pass protection.

Redman should get more goal line and short yardage. Absolutely.

I believe if redman ran the ball 25 times a game he'd get just about the same yards as mendy even though have redman in short bursts is really nice.

Mendy would be pretty good behind NE/Indy's line, or one of similar quality. Although our line has been pretty good pass blocking, the run blocking is average to poor. Most RB's need quite a few carries to get in a rythm and Mendy isn't getting those carries. With our o line run blocking so poorly, it's a lose/lose situation. Redman is a better short yardage back, blocks better, and seems to play with more heart. His big play potential isn't as good as Mendys but behind our line with our style of play, I think Redman would be more effecient.
