    Will Rashard Mendenhall reach 1000 rushing yards this season

    Currently, Mendenhall has 136 carries for 517 yds for an average 3.8 ypc and 6 TD's on the season. Not exactly stellar numbers to say the least but still plenty of time for him to reach the 1000 yds rushing goal for the season; atleast in theory. His best game so far this season was the 146 yd effort against the Jaguars. His next best game rushing was 70 yds against the Patriots. The rest of the games he's coming out with yardage no higher than 66 yards rushing.

    The next closest on the team is of course Isaac Redman with 64 carriers for 245 yds. A 3.8 ypc average and 1 TD, so we know he's not going to get there.

    Right now Mendenhall is slightly below his average for the entire season, per rush, when he finished with 3.9 ypc last year. In 2010 though he did finish with 1,273 yds and 13 TD's. The Steelers schedule does lend itself to good running performances the rest of the way (except for maybe the 49ers game) should they choose to go that route but something tells me that we'll be seeing a lot more Ben and the passing game and Mendenhall could be hard pressed to reach that 1000 yds on the season.

    Hate to hold it against him because he has only been averaging 13 carries a game. If the Steelers commit to about 22-26 carries a game where he can get 90, 100 yards, then yes, I believe he will get it. Mendenhall is better than a lot of people give him credit for being, just beeds to get into a rhythm and make a hole when there is none and stop dancing.

    He might, he might not. Wouldn't be surprised either way.

    You would think so but I have to wonder how much Arians will tone it down even though Ben has played through it before. His pass happy mentality might continue to grow even in bad weather.

    I suspect though that they will try and run the ball more in the bad weather, it just makes sense. How successful they are is another story, but since they've been able to move the ball with the short passing game (when they feel like it, lol) that's another reason the run game hasn't been as effective as in years past.

    I would like to see Redman get more cold weather carries.

    Is Ktrain gone?....

    Haha, but yes, I see Mendy getting 1,000 yards this season.

    Needing about 500 in six games would be tough considering his production thus far. Going against the Bengals and Niners, you would have to think he will have sub par outings, so that leaves four games, two against the Browns, one against the Chiefs and one against the Rams, to achieve the majority of that. Really, there is hope, but if he doesn't produce this week, he will likely be too far out to make 1,000 on the year.
