The problem is that every RB on the roster is a bum. We try to fool ourselves into thinking otherwise. Just consider that beast Morris for the Redskins; anyone like him on the roster? My point.

The problem is mostly our OL. When you try to run the ball every week behind a banged up, patch work offensive line it just isn't going to work. Our offense is based on Ben scrambling around, shaking off 4 defenders and trying to make something happen out of nothing. We won't have a balanced offense until we get a healthy, consistent OL.

Ben the Mr. Know-It-All is a significant factor in the downfall of the 2012 campaign, throwing the season away because he wanted to do what he wanted to prove something to the Rooneys and the Organization. Yeah, he proved something alright, and a lingering sentiment that hung around since his rookie year. That it is best for the team if the offense isn't in your hands.

The Running game has to improve. It is a MUST.
8-8

It's sure working really well....

Nice, that is a great point.

I don't care what he thinks either, hell he's been accused of a lot less than other people on the team, outside the game a anyway. My beef with Mendy is he only seems to run hard after he had his ass chewed.

No doubt he is the most talented guy carrying the ball, I'm just puzzled why it is so hard to get out of him.

I'm pulling for him, but hey if someone better is available…

Same as they've been for a while - the Steelers need to stop dicking around for the majority of the game with this small ball shit.

Yeah every rb on the roster is kind of a bum. Every one of them had fumbling problems this year and Mendenhall has had attitude problems.

I know how to fix it! Replace Haley with Kirby Wilson and get a RB coach that can do the job! This will fix the offense.

Interesting... interesting... so you are saying that Ben should not be throwing pick 6s in the 4th quarter like he did on the final drive in the hurry up offense @ Denver... he should be throwing them earlier like the one he threw in Cincy in the 2nd quarter to end the season? Is it possible that Ben came into week 1 with an injury? I am waiting for him to confirm this suspicion but I think it is possible. Why else would he throw an int to lose the game?

Take away the losses to Dallas and San Diego because we had no secondary (and nothing to do with Haley) and we are 10-6 and in the playoffs.

You like to keep bringing up the 8-8 record because it is easier than explaining why we started out 6-3 but finished out at 1-5.

Your arguments are lacking any teeth whatsoever.

The answer to the running game problems are simple: Tomlin and Mendy need to kiss and make up.

Mendy was starting to get back to form near the end, and is the legit #1 RB that we needed all year. I don't think he and Tomlin have ever gotten along. Nobody, including the coach, acknowleged that Mendy had to rehab REALLY HARD to get back to playing football in 12 months for what was projected to be an 18 month rehab on his knee.

Of course he was not going to be 100% right after that.

There is no need to burn another high draft pick this April to bring in another franchise RB, when we already have one and the defense needs so much work. Tomlin is letting his personal feelings get in teh way of doing his job efficiently on this one, IMHO.

Yeah, Mendy needs to re-evaluate his attitude, but to be fair, if I busted my ass to rehab and get back to playing shape, and then get benched for a mistake that 3 other guys were also guilty of-- I might be inclined to blow off my employer as well.

I also do not appreciate his 911 Truther statements-- but his personal feelings are his own. Me personaly- I would rather have a deep thinker on our team than a Pacman Jones or am Odell Thruman.

Tomlin and Mendy need to get past this because it is hurting the team for reasons I classify as "petty".
