    JD will need a breather after his first carry. I wouldn't be too worried if I were Mendy.

    Here's the potential problem with what Tomlin's doing. Mendy's too smart to be bothered Tomlin's motivational technique. Wally might be hurt by the slight and end up performing worse.

    There;s a fine line.

    If Wally is "hurt by the slight and ends up performing worse" it is good to know because that is the clearest indication he ISN'T an elite WR and doesn't deserve to be paid like one. But, many of us already knew that and I think the Steelers knew that. They gave him the chance to play this season for a big contract and he has at times been underwhelming. You don't commit 7-9% of your salary cap to a player like that.
    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!

    Mendy and Wallace demoted....I like it. Now lets move to the defensive side of the ball and get Heyward more playing time.

    I've could've won the lottery at least a hundred times after I knew the numbers.

    Not sure that excess intelligence has ever been Mendenhall's problem.

    Yea but not even trying to resign him will help fit us under the cap eventually. Keeping RM would be more expensive then some mid round draft pick, for sure.

    Hmmm, remember before the season ever started when I said JD would prove to be our best back - better than RM? It took a while, but now the coaches must agree with me. Not even I knew RM would end up stinking this bad. He truly sucks.

    it looks like Mendy is still not 100% to me, I still can't figure out why we rushed him back so early.
