    Question on Mendy

    Why haesn't some coach in his career taught him how to carry the ball???!! When he gets out in open space and starts running full speed, the arm is up and down AWAY from his body. You saw it today when he fumbled out of bounds (thank God). I just can't understand how someone has not corrected this.

    I'd have to think they (coaches) have tried. Up to the player to take what he is taught and change his game.

    Funny that you bring this up. Mrs. Armpit was yelling at the screen for him to protect the ball. Haha, love her!!!

    It's gonna take a big fumble for him to learn a lesson. I mean like a fumble in the Superbowl or something!!!!

    Tiki Barber did much the same thing early in his career...he was known for fumbling...

    Coughlin coached him to hold it high and tight and it worked...

    Coughlin would never put up with "hoping" a player fixed holding the ball wrong. If said player didn't fix it, he'd be benched or cut. But I guess our coaches just make "suggestions" with things like this.

    He also needs to learn to change hands to the outside hand when contact is coming. I'm just a football fan with limited HS playing experience and I know how important that is. How is it that he does not have this as part of his DNA at this point in his career?
