    Default Team still distanced from Mendenhall

    Team still distanced from Mendenhall

    Listening to my tape over the past week, I've picked up on something that may give a little insight into how Rashard Mendenhall is perceived by his teammates.

    When talking about the second-year running back, the only player who uses Mendenhall's first name is Willie Parker - a guy who would know him reasonably well from sitting through meetings with him.

    Everyone else calls him Mendenhall.

    Mendenhall didn't spend much time around the team after his injury last season - at least not until the playoffs. I only saw him on one road trip.

    That's not really as big a deal as it was made out to be last season. He did his rehab. He got healthy. And some coaches don't like a lot of injured players around anyway because they really can't help the team - particularly a rookie.

    But it's obvious Mendenhall isn't "one of the boys."

    He's quiet and in fact, comes off as a little shy.

    But another 165-yard game or two and you can bet the teammates will be talking differently about him.

    I like the fact that he is "a little shy." I remember a feature on him that was done on NFLN (I believe) last year... He is a very intelligent and well-spoken individual. He's a musician and appearently a "dancer." He was an excellent student throughout HS and College...seems to have a good head on his shoulders. He has no ego issues!

    Keep workin' Delicious!!!

    Wasn't Huey Richardson something like that, but worse? Like he wouldn't even sit with his teammates on the sideline?

    Walter Payton was a kinda quiet, soft spoken guy.

    If he keeps running like he has the last 2 weeks, the boys will take him as one of their own.

    I don't recall Mendy running this hard at Illinois except for the USC Rosebowl game. He should shred the stains real good this week.

    Mendy won't be one of the boys until Tomlin finally declares him the starter. Declare him the starter already, jackass.
