    Trade Mendenhall

    BOOM!

    How's that for a 1st thread?

    I'm serious. We need too much help in other areas and Mendenhall's value would allow us to get some of it. Besides ... I think Redman is more of a Pittsburgh style of "forward lean" RB. There's no doubt he's more than capable of handling a starting role. He and Jonathan Dwyer would be a nice combo.

    You'll get little arguement from some of us this. I'm not sure how much you'll get for him now after the inconsistent year and now a blown knee that won't have him ready fully ready to go until late summer at the earliest.

    When he's on his game, he can be lethal, but the Steelers offensive line issues and his style of running just don't mix well. Until the first gets fixed, the second one certainly won't either.

    Even people that say, oh well he had all those yards last year and our offensive line stunk...he had a 3.9 ypc average in 2010, that won't cut it either.

    Here's why I like the idea.... I have faith in Redman and possibly Clay and/or Dwyer carrying the load. I also like the thought of Baron Batch being a change of pace/third down guy. Lastly, there would be no need to pay Mendenhall the dough he is expecting.

    Now isn't the best time to put your RB on the trading blocks with a torn ACL!

    I personally hate his sissy running style and would have no problems getting a stick of gum for him!

    Poor.

    Mendenhall has a torn ACL and will be rehabbing for the next 10-12 months. He's completely untradable.

    This bad luck for Mendenhall could be what gets Redman the chance he's been looking for to be a starter. Rashard is going to want big money when his contract is up after 2012, that's a given, but if you're the Steelers you think twice about giving him that big deal, totally agree Marc. You'd get next to nothing for him right now, even based on his performance before he got hurt. Now, looking towards next season. with Redman, Dwyer, Clay, and Batch coming up to be in the mix along with Moore and Mendenhall, there are going to be some tough cuts that will have to be made. If Mendenhall isn't ready by that time, there's a chance they cut him if they think Redman can be the guy and they have enough faith in Dwyer, Clay and the rest of that group.
