Rashard Mendenhall is a rookie, so fumbling is going to happen some. But he’s still a first-round draft pick and the purported goal-line RB for the Steelers, so it would be kinda nice for Pittsburgh fans if he wrapped it up (insert your own Lindsay Lohan joke here).
Of course, all of this may explain why Hines Ward is giving the youngster a hard time. The PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE - REVIEW (via MONDESI’S HOUSE) carries the news that Ward put a football in Mendenhall’s locker which he has to carry around. If he loses the ball, he has to pay whoever took it $100. Sounds like fun times for rookie Rashard:
