Who will be our HB next year?

Mendenhall, if our FO has any brains.

I'd like to see Mendenhall get another chance. I know a lot of people on here want him gone, but he's probably the best option.

He is by far the best option. If they get rid of him, we will probably end up stretching to draft some unqworthy player in the 1st rd, just because we need a franchise RB that desperately.

His 911 truther and conspiracy comments did not sit well with me either, but truth be told-- I'd rather we have a "deep thinker" on our team than some of the other yokels in the NFL right now. If the worst he did was hold an unpopular opinion-- at least he was not bouncing dancers' heads off the dancefloor for picking up the money he made rain in the first place (Pacman Jones).

Mendy's east and west crap best fits the new ZBL scheme our Oline is going to be using. We have had him running behind rickety azz Olines for years now under Arians' system. I would love to see him get a chance to show us what he can do behind an actual Oline tailored to his running style.

I don't know how much better Mendenhall is in comparison to Dwyer. I know he is better, but I don't think the $ he'll demand while warrant that. Mendenhall is an average #1 option, Dwyer is a good backup option. If we can get Lacy in the 2nd, the we can bid farewell to Spinderella.

If he's hungry I'd love to have him back. Definitely the best option available and we wouldn't need to waste a draft pick in a weak offensive pool

You guys really think happy feet is our best option? I think you've been watching the Vikings and AP and not the Steelers and happy feet

Our next RB isn't a free agent or on this roster - he's somewhere in the draft. Giovani Bernard, Eddie Lacy or someone like Knile Davis are probably the best options for us. Now, say we get someone like Bernard in the second / third, I do think it would be smart to keep either Redman or Dwyer to be that third-and-punch it in RB on the goal line.

I wouldn't be upset if we cleaned house at RB, but kept Baron Batch as our ST captain. I also kind of want to see what he's capable of because he's only been given very limited action. Either in Latrobe or preseason, I want to see what he can do when given the opportunity to be our guy.
