Based on pure talent alone yes Rashard Mendenhall is the best RB on the Steelers roster but talent doesn't always lead to production......Mendenhall played his college ball at Illinois and I live less then an hour from the Illinois border so I watched a ton of Mendenhall when he was in college and he was a BEAST in college......He made big plays running and catching the ball....He sure hasn't been the RB, I thought he would be coming out of college....Which is really disappointing......I said last year that Rashard Mendenhall wouldn't receive contract number 2 from the Steelers and many argued with me.......
