    Do you see the common denominator here? Mendy?
    Mendy starts the last two games and the line looks good and is starting to click. FWP starts and the line looks lost and can't get out of their own way.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm!
    The line has played well recently, that's a great benefit for any back - one that Parker has not enjoyed while he was getting the job done on his own.

    Mendy has had two solid games so far. Let's see if this trend continues. Don't forget, it was only a couple weeks ago when the term "bust" was being used fairly often while discussing Mendy.

    Looking at a backs productivity linearly is naive. Too many factors involved including play calling, schemes, blocking. One thing FWP has on Mendy so far is productivity. He's produced, Mendy's just getting off the ground.

    All things considered, I think Mendy has more tools than FWP has to be a consistent featured back. Two solid games doesn't cause me to want this guy elected into the HOF, let's just hope his progression continues before we decide to cast FWP off of the ship.

    How can you say FWP didn't benefit from it. Maybe the holes were always there and FWP just didn't see it or went down at first contact. So while we critized the o-line maybe the real problem was FWP.

    FWP is still a good back, but was rode pretty hard in '06-'07 and broke his leg in week 15 of '07. Since then he has been injury prone. Tomlin said he would ride FWP until the wheels fell off and it looks like he has.

    In a reduced role I still believe Willie can be more than effective, he can still be productive if used properly.
