    Oh, a failure?

    847 rushes, 3,480 yards, 29 TD's, 75 catches, 660 yards, 2 TD's.... what a horrendous player.

    Remembering that Year 1 & Year 5 of Mendenhall's career have been washouts through injury.

    If that's a failed player- there must be very few success stories in the NFL. You can not like a player without disregarding what his abilities are. Fact is, Mendenhall offers more game changing ability than the likes of Dwyer & Redman, and if the Steelers lose their other game changing player- Mike Wallace- they might need someone that can break a game open.

    I don't see a problem with them signing RM. He's not the problem here. The FO and coaches see him every day and I have a fair amount of confidence in them despite a rough year.

    Averaging 1100+ yards and close to 10 TDs rushing a year over his 3 years as the full time starter is far from unrealized potential. That's just silly.


    I'm not a huge fan of him as a running back, but he certainly hasn't been a failure.

    I disagree. We have a chemistry/attitude problem and he is the ring leader of said problem. He is such not the problem that he isn't showing up for games and is getting suspended. That sounds like a real "non problem" to me.

    there is no "I" in team, but there is definitely a "Me" in Mendenhall...

    I'm torn on this one.

    we need a RB and if we can get him cheap, I could see this move being made. However, he does seem like he isn't fully committed at times.

    tough one.

    Sure,lets reward him with a nice 3 year contract for his unparalleled performance this season.
    A season filled with injuries,fumbles, a suspension. Let's not forget to mention the lack of support he showed for his teammates by not showing up on gameday.
    While the front office is at it, why not throw 15 million a year to the malcontent, a.k.a. Mr. Wallace
    Whats the worst that could happen?

    I don't mind the signing if it's true, Dwyer to me is not the dedicated one and Red is not the answer.

    I think if someone ever blocked for Mendy, he could be great.
