    I am more than happy to eat crow with Mendy. I will say in my defense he had a habit of dancing an awful lot and it cost him yards. This year, at least for the one game so far, he looks like a new man ready to take over his rightful position as the starter.

    FWIW, the line did their job in run blocking today and Redman is a better back when Mendy is in the game.

    [QUOTE=BlitzburghRockCity;512492]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.

    Mendenhall returns and rushing game gets back on track

    I never said anything bad on Mendy! He looks like a #1 draft
    Pick!

    Of course, he only has to carry a few times, and the D has had to stop Mendy all game.

    What I saw is that the O-line decided to execute when their was a runningback they had faith in. It's all mental. They don't feel they can run the ball without Mendy.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Loved seeing Mendenhall back in the backfield. Like everyone has basically stated, there's no question to me that he's the best overall back we have. As the weeks move on I hope he gets more involved with Haley's offense (in the passing attack as well). I also liked how they used Redman as a good change-of-pace back. Liked how Redman performed today. He performed like the player I always expected him to be....a bruiser who picks up the tough yards. Things are looking up for Pittsburgh's running game. Onto Tennessee!

    Mendy stepped the F up today and boy did we need him to. He was one of the few
    who weren't bumbling around like they just got back from vacation.
