At least it showed some flashes today. If Mend can break a couple of runs like that a game and Parker gets his average up to about 4 (it was 3.4 today) that will help keep the D off the field more, not wearing them down.

The schedule should get a little more RB friendly from here, so Chadman expects to see better things from the running game.

Just wondering if we started to see the transition from Parker to Mendenhall a little with Mendy's running today.

If next season the Steelers say they are going with Mendenhall #1 & Moore #2, Chadman will see this as progress. Always have liked Willie Parker, but Mendenhall has greater upside, is a better all-around RB & Moore is undervalued & could easily fit the #2 & 3rd down RB role.

a couple of real nice trap plays today. I thought there was progress made.
