Thread: Benching Mendenhall ... Tomlin's equivalent of Cowher's spitting?

    Benching Mendenhall ... Tomlin's equivalent of Cowher's spitting?

    In my mind's eye I can see Cowher grabbing a player by the collarbone, one who has just messed up in a very non-Steeler way, putting his chin 2 inches from the other guy, and start yelling at him while painting him with the trademark Cowher Shower.

    Well Coach T doesn't exactly do that, but I think he really shook up the locker room in his own way this week. Sitting Mendy down, whatever he did with Wallace (what exactly did he do, I missed what the announcers said), plus who knows what else he did behind closed doors - whatever it was, it sure worked.

    I think Tomlin grew as a coach this week - it's awesome.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    Didn't seem to work for Wallace. He looked like a 4th WR once again.

    The announcers said Wallace was named as a Co-Starter

    Until the last drive, of course. Wallace dropped 1 catch he should have made. Batch missed him on a sure TD.

    And when we needed to move the ball on that last drive, Wallace came up with a couple of catches when needed.

    Sanders has 3 fumbles in 2 weeks.

    Mendy may have carried the ball for his last time as a Steeler last week. I think he is done in Pittsburgh.

    Did you notice Wallace standing around while Ravens tackled the other WR's....a few times I saw him standing there watching 5 yards from the play while a guy he could of blocked makes the tackle.

    High hopes held for Mendy seem dimmer now. I thought Haley would find some highly effective ways to use the best of Mendy's significant talents. It hasn't materialized much due to injuries to Mendy, on the OL, and to Ben, and due to the emergence of others. He may need a fresh start somewhere else (not with Arians - who wasted his talents, I thought). I think the talent is there and in the right system he will be productive.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    Yep. This is the unofficial end to Mendy's career in Pittsburgh. The team seems comfortable with Dywer and Redman moving forward.....as they should.

    Crazy. I would never have imagined he couldn't be taught to not fumble, like Tiki Barber was. I wonder if there is something else going on we don't know about.
