I remember that like it was yesterday. Damn that's funny.
Ummm...WTF was that?
Glad he's playing. He's never been productive against the Ravens and i don't see that changing on Sunday.
Anyone have a clip on Ray's hit on him?
He isn't that great, I am more concerned about Redman and Dwyer exploiting the middle of our defense. Mendenhall isn't big or strong enough to do that, he's an outside zone runner, and that's the strength of our run defense.
Like Leach said, I am more concerned about Dwyer but especially Redman. That guy breaks tackles at an alarming rate. I will never forget how he broke two tackles to score the winning TD in 2010 at M&T. The guy has to be tackled low. Same with Dwyer.
Just checked the Steelers stats this season and noticed something:
Their running backs have only scored 4 TDs.
They've scored 17 TDs passing, but 6 of those have been to Wallace, 6 have been to Heath Miller.
More than half their TDs have been scored by those 2 players, with Ben obviously passing it to them.
Losing Ben may cripple that offense unless they can somehow make significant adjustments mid-season.
I hope they give Mendenhall all of the carries. He is overrated and runs soft.
