Mendenhall almost quit football

Wow, this may make some of you guys change your tune about drafting El Gato instead of mendenhall.  According to this story Mendenhall was considering quitting before last season and just getting a job after finishing school.

Obviously the kid has talent but when I see all the interviews and stories with El Gato, a guy who lives and breathes football, this makes me really glad about our pick.  I'm sure Mendenhall will be a good player but if a player comes out and says "I almost quit" as opposed to a guy who says "football is my life", I'll take the latter anytime. 

The garbage pile of ex NFL players is littered with extremely talented guys who lacked the heart and desire (Hello Matt Jones) - things you can't teach.

El Gato will end up a much better pro then Mendenhall with better stats in every category - you heard it here first.
