Why don't we just draft us a good one this year in the draft?

It isn't like Mendy was dogging it in any of his previous seasons-- we always got a good effort from him.

Would be different if he were the only one who fumbled in that game, but he was only the 4th Steelers player to put the rock on the ground in that game. For Tomlin to single him out, and in the end, hurt the team by benching our best option at RB, was one of the few moves Tomlin has made since taking over that I will label as "stupid". It looks an awful lot like a double-standard or total hypocrisy.

Whoever pointed out that it seems like Tomlin just does not like Mendy, is absolutely correct I am thinking.

Granted, a no-show is not the correct way to handle that, but I can't really blame him for his reaction.
I'm not arguing that he didn't have a right to be pissed. He did, but that doesn't excuse him not showing up for a game. A practice maybe, but not a regular season game.

I just wanted to point out that he isn't a team player or committed to the Steelers by pulling stunts like that. He should have handled it better and addressed it with Tomlin personally or in some other constructive way.

I do agree with the poster that stated they think Tomlin doesn't like him for whatever reason. He has come down hard on Mendy several times when others deserved it more.

Not to change the subject, but what I want to know is how they came to the conclusion that Russell was the best kickoff return man on the team in '08???

good question. didnt we have FB carey Davis returning kicks as well? Hell, we had James Harrison and Retofsky long snapping, and a beer guy and ticket scalper punting and place kicking. Special teams were really FUBAR there for a few years despite winning the SB.

I thought I remember we consistently at least got it to the 25-30 that season - could be wrong about average starting position - I thought I remember thinking - hey, at least we aren't starting at <10 - thought field position was fairly good that season - please correct me if I'm wrong

But yea, in general - that type of personnel for that was strange - thought I remember it being because it was a chance at "no liability" - which, is kinda sad - ah well

I'd say give mendy another shot. with his crappy performance last year, other teams won't break the bank for him.

If we can get him to sign for a reasonable price, i'd say go for it, he's still our best back. In a zone blocking scheme and a full offseason to work with todd haley, i think it will be good for him. That and now he's fully healed from his knee injury
