Default Mendenhall Suspended.

The Steelers have suspended Mendenhall for Saturday's game with the Cowboys for "conduct detrimental to the team."

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...burgh-steelers

Apparently, they are miffed because Mendenhall did not show up to Chargers' game after being told ahead of time that he would not dress. Probably a line of BS. If the Steelers were suspending guys based on them NOT showing up for the Chargers, then 3/4 of their roster would be suspended.

First off, eff you lol

Secondly I think Mendy had had an attitude problem which led to his benching to begin with. I never thought that move was based solely on poor performance.

Mendenhall was placed on the non injured inactive roster for 2 weeks in a row, now a suspension. His contract is up after this off season. He probably didn't show up because he was updating his resume, or had an interview at McDonalds.

Scratch the interview at McDonalds, he would keep dropping the burgers.

Only 3/4? I think the only two that showed up were Ben and Timmons. Hell the coaching staff didn't even show up.

Things appear to be falling apart at the seams over there. I thought Tomlin was the type of guy to get everyone on the same page?

Things are fine. Dwyer has proven himself and Mendy has also proven himself, which is why he is not going to be offered a new contract imo.

Mendy got cut from my fantasy team, and trust me, it WAS for poor performance.

Pft, ever since Harvin went down I've alternated Josh Gordon and Cecil Shorts.

I had Cecil Shorts TWICE, each time I cut him he had a good game. Ugh.

Dwyer hasn't broken the 60 yard mark in 5 games, however. Still, he's the best the Steelers have right now. Mendenhall has a ton of talent, but he's got several screws loose and the fumbling problem he had as a rookie has resurface. Still, at only 25 years old, he's got plenty of tread left on his tires and will get another shot somewhere next year, although probably on the cheap given his poor season and now this.

Hearing reports now that he's smoothed things over with the team, and according to his agent, the team still has him in their plans. Whatever that means, it was not specified this season or future.
Little confusing to me, possabily posturing by his agent. I wouldn't want him back unless it's real cheap as long as Dwyer continues to develop.

He may still be in their plans for this year, because if he gets his fumbling under control, the Steelers will need him at the end of the year and the playoffs if they make it. However, I'd be extremely surprised to see them offer him a contract next year, especially with them already well over next year's cap. With Pittsburgh cap situation, I think most people assumed he would be gone next year since the beginning of the year.

They plan on letting him go...It's still a plan.

Mendenhall has three basic flaws. The most glaring is his ability to hold on to the ball, the second is he dances along the line instead of running north to south, and the third is that he is a terrible blocker.

I thought only we Palmer fanboys counted garbage time TDs as "showing up."

Now they're talking contract extension. Interesting. Definately an odd move.
