Default Let's just stick with Mendenhall.

I've recently had a change in heart. I think we may as well give a healthy Mendenhall one more chance. We've got a lot to take care of before the 2013 season begins so maybe wasting a number 1 pick on a half back would be a waste. Mendenhall did have a couple of good seasons before he got sidetracked by injuries and other problems. He should be healthy this coming season so let's throw him back out there and hope he has a come back season. I know I'm doing a complete 180 on this. After all though Mende kicks ass in madden.

Default Re: Let's just stick with Mendenhall.

in 09 and 10 he rushed for a total of 2,381 yards and had 21 touchdowns, in 2009 he averaged 4.6 yards per carry, not mind blowing numbers but if he could return to that form (hes only 25) than he might end up just as good or better than someone we pick up in the draft. I don't really think much of him but I do think we have much much more important things to fix. Mainly our offensive line which would help both mende and ben.

It's common knowledge we will have problems with cap space this year. Mendy is going ot get an offer outthere we can't match or would want to match. As we often do, in these cases, we will make a half hearted attempt to sign him, but little more.

I say let Mendy walk. As the saying goes, RB are a dime a dozen. Should be able to find replacement.
Even if they have to spend a little money, which right now they do not have. Or just get the best dam RB available in the draft - round 2 or 3.
If he and Wallace walk and sign elswhere, don't the Steelers recieve comp picks next year for both? If so, then it is not a bad thing.

Default Re: Let's just stick with Mendenhall.

right now I have no expectations for the Steelers to keep or get rid of anybody. I know there's a lot of talk going on about this and that, but I have faith that the FO will do what's best for the team. They won't only be thinking about the next year, but also long term. I think Mendenhall might be the best choice, but we'll see what the team does.
