    Mendenhall running like he's been watching Redman

    Rashard Mendenhall returned to the lineup after missing a week with a hamstring injury and looked like the Mendy of old.

    23 carries for 146 yds. and 1 TD. Long run of 68 yards showed that hamstring is just fine. I really thought he was going to take it to the house but the Jags were able to get the sideline angle and force him out. He was running today like a guy running with purpose, with a chip on his shoulder if you will. Perhaps he was taking some notes watching Redman and Dwyer run it last week?

    On that long run, he took the handoff, hit the hole in the middle of the line and just took off. No wasted movements, just get it and go. That's what you love to see. They made most of their living running off the right side today, which is nothing new. Credit Foster and Scott for sealing that left side and opening up lanes for the running game. I liked everything I saw out of him and Redman today.

    It's never been a question of his ability; we know he's a good carrier. However today we watched really take advantage of the lanes available to him. He kept the legs going and ran through tackles on a regular basis.
