I'm sorry but when you make that much money you are paid to do WHATEVER THE HELL the team tells you to as mong as it's not illegal. Even then, for that kind of mney, I probably would! No disrespect to him as a human being but this is just another instance that he shows ignorance not intelligence.
Wallace and Burress are competing with each other in a dumber than dirt contest, and dirt is looking pretty intelligent by comparison, and until it showed on the field it wasn't important to the game. Mendenhall can join them for all I care if it doesn't hurt his play, and it hasn't, but Tomlin is starting to look like he has them all beat by letting personality trump performance like this after being specifically told to improve the running game by the owners of the team. They stopped listening to Arians's excuses, I'm hoping that was a shot across Tomlin's bow.

Ed, has the coaching staff completely forgotten Mendenhall's career stats and performance against Philly earlier this year? He's by far their most talented back with big-play ability. Can't say that about the other guys...

Ed Bouchette: He hasn't shown it much, and they don't believe his head is in the right place
....

What is the deal with Mendenhall's "head being in the right place?" Is it just an effort/interest thing or is there more at play, like an anxiety disorder, for example?

Ed Bouchette: I can't tell you exactly, just what I was told.


Meanwhile the agent spins away

Mike McCartney, Mendenhall's agent, said the player will serve his suspension and then return to them next Monday in good spirits.

The suspension will cost Mendenhall $41,176, which is one week's (1/17th) worth of his $700,000 salary.

"What's happened, happened," McCartney told the Post-Gazette. "When I spoke to Rashard, I know he is very excited next Monday to rejoin his teammates. He's going to come back with great energy to do everything he can to help the Pittsburgh Steelers win football games."

Mendenhall came in with a bad attitude, and he leaves with a bad attitude. In the middle, he gave us a lot of disappointing performances and a lack of effort. Such a shame to see natural talent squandered, potential unfulfilled.

And he's also a public idiot with the 9/11 truther stuff, the Bin Laden support, and the comparison of his very privileged position in the NFL with slavery. Embarrassing.

At least Tomlin is finally manning up. Way overdue.
