Nope, it was ruled a lateral and therefore a running play. I have a video of it I'll post up shortly.

At first I thought it was a pass too.

Mendy proved all of us wrong in us judging him about his running style, he does dance alot, but we need him, he made the O-Line look good today, 14 carries 81 yards i'm glad he's back, with out him we lose this game real talk...Welcome back Mendy!!!

Didn't prove me wrong about anything. I've always been a Mendenhall supporter, especially during all the "Redman is so much better" bullshit over the last couple years. Just glad to see others finally appreciating him lol.

We definitely need to sign him.

There is no another back on the roster with his skill set. Experiments and arguments over.

What I saw today is that the team doesn't feel they can run the ball without Mendy. It's a mental thing. They totally lose their running identity if Mendy isn't the lead back. That isn't good.

And the coaches don't have any faith in any runner other then Mendy. Because they stayed with the run until it worked. Which is something that have not done in any game up to this point.

Rashard Mendenhall’s 13-yard touchdown run against the Philadelphia Eagles has been changed to a touchdown reception. As a result, Ben Roethlisberger finished 22-for-38 for 220 yards and one touchdown. Mendenhall rushed for 68 yards on 13 carries.

Whatever the case may be, a tremendous burst of speed by Mendy got him to the end zone. Again, want to see how he bounces back this week on a short week before I proclaim him to be back. And 13 for 68 is still > 5 yds per carry.

Coming back from surgery, after being off for months on end, and not playing a game this season until Sunday. well, that is pretty damn impressive. What did we expect, 120 yards and 2 TD's on 10 carries?
