    There is more to it then just fumbling. He is a cry baby now at this point. How many real Steelers have had to sit the pine not hurt? I am sure a few. I was a mendy fan even with his stupid off the field stuff. But this is disrespect toward the steelers. No player is worth that. I will give him props up till now. No stupid tweets yet. Maybe he learned something? We will see. Keep an eye on twitter.

    I find not dressing your best back and getting mad and suspending him when he doesnt show up to hold a clip board is stupid.

    Why should he show up when he is healthy and they do not dress him. That seems childish to me....not dressing your best back because he fumbled twice, all the while the rest of of your RB's did the same thing
    Why show up? Because it's his job....whether he plays or not.

    what part of professional football player do you not understand?

    hint: he still cashed a check last week.

    If you drive a truck for a living and your boss tells you he found another driver for 1 day because you been late on deliveries would you still show up and ride shotgun?

    I see your point and maybe he should have been there, but suspending him? Seems obsessive.....

    There's a real feeling of pettiness this season in Pittsburgh- most notably in the reaction to Wallace not signing his contract offer, and then seeing Brown offered essentially mike's money in a "well, if you won't sign, we'll give it to this guy" kind of deal... and now having Mendenhall sit as a healthy inactive even though he wasn't the Lone Ranger in the fumbleathon.

    Does he deserve suspension? Yeah, why not. He's gone next year. So is Wallace. But the treatment both have recieved from the FO has been really petty, and not overly proffesional.

    There's obviously more to this than just the fumbles. Since his return from injury he has shown nothing at all. Suspend him and let him walk this year. It definitely doesn't seem as if we're losing anything.

    Maybe he'll go on to be a good RB elsewhere. However, it seems obvious it's not going to happen here.

    looking back at that 2008 draft is enough to make a man puke.

    what a disaster.
