As long as it's not Mendenhall then I am happy. No more soft RBs.

You can ask Raider fans all about that, they have known this in the worst way the last decade. However, the Pats have been doing the same thing over and over again for a while now, and if not for 2 plays, would have two more super bowls.

However, Mendenhall, while talented, has major focus issues. Focus is what killed this team this year. We can blame injuries all we want, but there were games that were virtually over that the Steelers let slip away in the final quarters. When a team loses to shitty teams, with double digit leads in the final quarters, its focus that lets it slip. This is the fault of the head coach and your leaders on the team. The Steelers do not have a leader on this team, the last two retired last year, Farrior and Ward.

Big Ben is not a leader, no matter what anyone thinks. Troy and James are wrecking balls of fury, they are lead by example types. The only ones close to being a leader is Ryan Clark, and Larry Foote after him. But they are at the end of their careers as well.
too bad those 2 wrecking balls spend half the season in street clothes.

Ben leads by example. He plays hard and hurt, something both Harrison and Troy have not done.

I hope you are seriously not buying into that blown out of proportion bullshit on Mendenhall's statement. He does NOT support terrorism and was only expressing it was kind of barbaric to be celebrating a death. Even though it was just and well deserved the mob mentality is a little uncalled for.

I'm sure every team would love to have its own Patrick Willis. Too bad there aren't exactly guys like those walking the streets.

The problem with having a sense of humor, is that often, people you use it on, are not in a very good mood.

We have to be real here. It'll probably be either Redman or Dwyer as our feature back with whoever we draft fighting for his spot, not the other way around.

If those two R1 and two R2 picks play up to potential AND stay healhty, I am willing to bet that I could run for 1,500 yards.

So, Yes, Redman & Dwyer behind that line seems like the route that is most likely.
