Mendenhall had NINE TD's last season in 15 games, ALL of which, were in the red zone.
What does it matter how he gets in? If it was 5 rushing and 4 receiving it's still the same 9.
Cutting Urbik was a real headscratcher. With the sorry state of our OL at the time, how could the coaching staff possibly mis-evaluate Urbik that badly? Maybe the light didn't turn on for Urbik until it was too late, but we have kept lesser Olinemen for longer, waiting on their game.
in the end, if DeCastro pans out, it's a good thing to have given up on Ubrik... we might have passed on Decastro.. just sayin...
