    Mendy To Start

    What does everyone think about that?

    I just heard on the radio that he's likely going to start this weekend. So we're just going to have a completely new offense?

    I'd like to see us spread the Ravens out with 3 WR/1 TE and let Mendy run out of an empty backfield. Mendy came out of college running from a spread formation and BA's never used him effectively. I think Haley will get the most out of his talents. Get him the ball and some space.

    This offense was built for a back like Mendy. And I think he can be the key to get this offense scoring points. Wouldn't it be something if we started scoring more points per game with Byron at the helm?

    Now that Haley has Mendy, it might be possible.

    Mendy is our best RB when healthy. He can do more than the others although if Dwyer can keep his head in the game I think he has the potential to be better. However, potential don't mean squat. Lots of guys have bombed out of the NFL who were loaded with potential.

    I do think that Haley's offense with Ben running it is tailor made for Mendy. I read in the PG this morning that Haley was adjusting the offense for Lefty so we'll see how that goes. it also shows why Haley is the type of coordinator we should have adjusting his scheme for his players and no vice versa like some do.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    What do you mean by "like some do"?

    Mendy is certainly the best back we have by a long shot...so this only helps our O. In order for us to beat the Ravens...we need to let our skill players win this game for us. It means Mendy getting the ball 20 times in some form or fashion. It means short passes to Brown and Rainey. Ball control...quick passes...screens...running game etc. What we don't need is to let Lefty stand in the pocket like a statue against a stout pass rush.

    Mendy is returning from an Achilles injury, it is highly doubtful the Steelers will give him the ball 20 times in his first game back.

    and Antonio brown has been officially ruled out, so no short passes will be thrown to him.

    At least Ray Lewis won't be in the game to break Mendy's bones. He punked him big time with that hit after RM ran his texting mouth.

    now that you mention it, it may very well have been a veiled attempt to hate on DL...

    Ovi?

    I hope Mendy has the best game he's ever had. But I wouldn't be surprised if his final stat line is something like 15 carries, 25 yards.
