    Mendenhall returns and rushing game gets back on track

    I've been personally critical of Mendenhall in the past, I fully admit it. His dancing around before hitting the hole used to drive me nuts. Maybe we're seeing a new Mendy now.

    So he comes back today and all of the sudden the ground attack is a viable part of the offense. They average 4.4 ypc on the ground combined. Mendenhall 14/81 yds, 1 TD. Redman 13/41 and Big Ben 3/14.

    So was it Mendenhall coming back that gave them the edge, or was it the offensive line blocking? It's a combination of all the factors but from what I saw from Mendy, he's hitting the hole with authority, 1 move and he's north and south.

    I submit to all the Mendy lovers. He did pretty well. To be fair though, the offensive line did open a few gaping holes here and there.

    It looked like Mendy was hitting holes with authority. The O line played good today in the run and pass I don't think Ben got sacked. Also very good play calling. Penalty's and drop passes killed us.

    Mendenhall comes back and the rushing game gets back on track

    Mendy looks fresh and is running strong.

    No doubt Rashard Mendenhall is the most talented RB on the roster....Anxious to see how Haley uses Rashard going forward.....He can be such a weapon as well in the passing game......Mendy ran hard today and had a good game....Really the offensive star of the game......

    **** poor effort? Did you not see Asomugha shoulder check him before the ball got there? I don't know how it wasnt called. Along with other 2 blatant holdings on Wallace that weren't called. Refs were horrible with that **** today.

    And I never want to hear anyone say how much better Redman is than Mendenhall, ever again. Good to see people realizing how they've under appreciated him. Glad to have him back, looking as good as ever.
