Pittsburgh Gazette: Rookie Rashard Mendenhall joined Willie Parker
in the backfield this year to supposedly give the Steelers the
best one-two punch at RB they've had in years. They were to be #1
and 1-A. Coordinator Bruce Arians even talked about teaming them
to form a "pony" backfield on occasion. Everyone, even the
coaching staff, forgot about the exercise pony, or their 3-4
punch, Mewelde Moore. Moore was signed as an unrestricted free
agent from the Vikings 2 days after free agency began to take over
as the Steelers' 3rd-down back. He seemed perfect for the job,
better than they have had in the past because he not only could
block, he was a threat to run and catch passes as well. "He has
things that are potentially attractive to us," Steelers coach Mike
Tomlin said on the day they signed him to a 3-year contract for
$4.95 million that included a $1.35 million signing bonus.
