02:08 PM ET 06.13 | New Cardinal Rashard Mendenhall has a healthy number of competitors for lead back duties in Arizona, but so far in minicamp he appears to be blowing them away. Mike Jurecki reports on Twitter that Mendenhall has looked "good hitting the holes" and that he is "clearly the number 1 RB" so far in camp. Not bad for a player that had a hard time securing a good contract on the open market this year.

Mini-camp & regular season are 2 totally different things

That is because Arizona hasn't had a back in decades.

Wait until his fumble-itis kicks in, then get back to us.

And he's playing against the Cardinals defense, which is below-average

Being top RB in Arizona is akin to being the best drone pilot in the military.....you may do a good job but no one will see you.

Turn on local talk radio here in Phx, Bruce Aryans reminds me of Ross Perot's presidential campaign. He has the local schlubs believing the Cards are 10-6 at the worst.

Dennis Miller later said about Perot "The crazier that MoFo talked, the more certain I was of his impending victory". Ok, that's paraphrased, but pretty close as I remember it. That's Bruce Aryans on Phx talk radio.
