    IMO...
    Starter should be Medenhall.
    Change of Pace, Willie.
    3rd Down, Moore.
    Short/GL, Medenhall.

    Question is, will the coaches see it this way?

    The problem with using the backs this way is that it telegraphs what plays you are likely to run with specialized personnel. That is why using your best all-around back is the way to go because it doesn't tip your hand!

    I say split caries between Mendy and Willie. If one struggles, the coaches should do the right thing and pull him.

    Even if Willie Parker starts, he probably wont be 100%, so I think Mendenhall will and should get the bulk of the carries.

    Mendenhall's ability to block and pick up the blocks is clearly something that Tomlin and the coaching staff need to take into consideration when they decide who is going to be starting. Clearly Mendy is the better overall blocker and can save Ben a lot of sacks by picking up that blitzer on a play fake much like he did the other night several times. I dont have a problem with Willie and I hope he gets healthy but right now I am on the Mendenhall bandwagon and I think he should be the starting running back for now until further notice...

    The way I see it...you play both in the first quarter and then go with the hot hand.

    actually i would like to see Mendenhall in first half, and Parker in second. Mendenhall is much better against a fresh defence than parker is due to his better vision and toughness in his way of running. He can wear a defence down. Parker is still fast, but he needs huge holes to benefit from that great speed, and he needs to be fresh, which both should happen if Mendenhall have destroyed the world in the first half.

    Long term i wouldnt mind Mendenhall and Moore... Mendenhall should be able to handle business him self.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    I've been off the Willie wagon for a few seasons now. I can't take the statement "it was one game, against the banged up Chargers" into any kind of consideration. I don't think Willie would have had near the game Mendy had. Save for his SB record run, that's all he has. He's more miss than hit, he can't run between the tackles, he can't shed a tackle and he doesn't take on tackers.. I see him run out of bounds more than anything (if he ever gets past the LOS). Mendy needs to work on a few details and I'm sure he will have his Willie moments, but I'll take his potential over Willies one and only skill.

    IMO, in this "what have you done for me lately league," Willie will (and should) spell Mendy.
