    redmen, dwyer or a healthy mendenhall can do a lot for our team. this coud be a great offense if lead correctly. if we do go to the super bowl i say it will be the offense that paves the way.
    This is what Rooney actually said 2 years ago:

    "I think Mike and I certainly agreed coming off the season that we need to run the ball more consistently to get to where we want to get to," Rooney told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette yesterday. "So that's part of the thinking in the offseason: We need to figure out how to get better running the football." "We have to get back to being able to run the football when we need to run the football, and being able to run more consistently than we have in the past season," he said.
    He said MORE CONSISTENTLY and GET BETTER RUNNING THE FOOTBALL and RUN WHEN WE NEED TO RUN, but the headline for this article in the Post-Gazette simply says, "Rooney wants Steelers to run the ball more" so those 8 words are all that the masses came away with (without reading his actual words).

    I'm not so sure about that.

    Might have to change the title of this thread to "Mendy is a baller." 8 months after an ACL? Are you kidding me? This is a fantastic recovery.

    For all the grief Mendy gets he has always had the reputation of being a fantastic physical speciman and a very hard worker, but this just seems to me to be really rushing (no pun intended) things after just 8 months. Not sure it is wise. I would definitely wait until at least after the bye week.

    I don't think it's wise but Mendy is trying to get paid.

    I think our current cast of backs can handle the job and the coach should allow Mendy to heal up as far into the season as possible. Mendy might heal up and all that but according to other backs that had his type of injury, it takes the following season to get back to their 100% playing condition.
    " We'll do the same thing we always do, we'll take every situation from week to week and do what we think is best for that week and evaluate it on that basis.. If cheating will give us the edge as it has always done then, we will continue to cheat. " Bill Belichick
