    I agree with this move, Mendenhall is the more reliable back at this point. It would not make sense to sit him in favor of Parker, when he has played so well in these past couple weeks.

    The setup of the OL anymore is not benefitting the running style of FWP. A few years ago, our Oline could open a hole and FWP would run thru that crack. Our Oline does not make holes like that anymore. With the Bus, no hole, no problem, he'd just move the pile for a 2-3 yard gain. FWP needs a hole or a crack. He does dance around too much at the point of attack and does not see the holes well to hit them when they DO DEVELOP!
    I do not think he will be re-signed next year. Mendenhall, Moore and Redman will be the players on the roster next year.

    I could not agree with this more...
