There are all kinds of clowns in the public square, sad clowns, mad clowns, bad clowns, all looking for a reaction from people who should know better. That isn't news. Still, some of these recent public comments have exceeded the usual quotidian idiocy, have they not? They're beyond stupid, beyond ignorant, beyond misinformed and even beyond irresponsible. But enough about Donald Trump. We're talking today, as people who should know better, about future former Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall, who knows very little beyond how to push our buttons.

You have probably seen Rashard Mendenhall's controversial Tweets about Osama bin Laden and chances are you have bashed the Steelers running back while discussing the hot topic with friends, coworkers or your fellow commenters on this site. If you have no idea what I'm referring to, you can read about Mendenhall's Tweets here . It's easy to criticize a rival player for saying something idiotic. But if Mendenhall was a member of the Ravens, some fans would feel conflicted about whether they should root for him, especially if he started piling up touchdowns once the season started.

PITTSBURGH -- Now in his third NFL season, former Bowie State running back Isaac Redman has become a big part of the Pittsburgh Steelers backfield, starting five games and leading the Ravens' AFC North rivals with 84 carries. But heading into Sunday night, Redman is one of three running backs the Ravens must prepare for. Rashard Mendenhall, Pittsburgh's leading rusher the past three seasons, is questionable for Sunday's game at Heinz Field. But Redman said he expects Mendenhall to join Jonathan Dwyer and him in a crowded backfield.

The last time the Ravens and Cleveland Browns met, the Ravens ran for a franchise-record 290 yards with Ray Rice gaining a career-best 204 yards and one touchdown and Ricky Williams rushing for a season-high 76 yards and another touchdown. That's why Rice is expecting the Browns to hone their concentration on stopping the run. “Anybody would after having a game like that,” he said. “We respect them, they respect us. It's all going to be about execution, but we know that they are going to put a nice edge on their defense, have a safety down, whatever they got to do to get the job done.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall has finished in the top 20 in rushing in each of the last two seasons. But his success has not come at the expense of the Ravens. In six career meetings against the Ravens, Mendenhall has never reached the 100-yard mark in rushing. Although he has scored five touchdowns, Mendenhall has been relatively contained by the Ravens. “I think the big thing with him is just keeping him in the box and not letting him bounce,” outside linebacker Jarret Johnson said.

Terrell Suggs was told by the NFL that any further comments or on-field activity indicating his participation in bounty activity could result in "significant disciplinary action," a league spokesman said. The Ravens' linebacker-defensive end was notified yesterday in a letter from Ray Anderson, the NFL executive vice president of football operations. The trouble for Suggs started two weeks ago on an Atlanta sports radio talk show when he was asked whether there was a bounty on Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall (who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury against the Ravens)

Looking back at it three and a half years later, the 2008 NFL draft produced a strong crop of running backs. Darren McFadden, Matt Forte, Rashard Mendenhall and Jamaal Charles are all starters now. Jonathan Stewart, Tim Hightower, Felix Jones, Tashard Choice and Steve Slaton have each had their moments. And then there are Ray Rice and Chris Johnson, two of the very best runners in the NFL, whose skills will be on display Sunday afternoon when the Ravens travel to Nashville to take on theTennesseeTitans.

Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall has rushed for 962 yards this season.The Steelers have used five combinations of offensive lineman this season, but those changes haven't affected the running of Rashard Mendenhall, who needs 38 rushing yards to reach 1,000 yards for the second year in a row. "It's having a chance and opportunity," he said. "When you're having success in the run, it means the offensive line is controlling the line of scrimmage. " But Mendenhall has produced behind a line featuring eight different starters and only two players, center Maurkice Pouncey and right tackle Flozell Adams, who started every game in the same position.

When there was talk about bounties in the NFL at the end of last week, it was only a matter of time before Terrell Suggs's name surfaced. In October 2008, Suggs, a Pro Bowl outside linebacker, said the Ravens put a bounty on Pittsburgh receiver Hines Ward and Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall. A few days later, Suggs said he misspoke and apologized. But once reports came out last week that St. Louis defensive coordinator Gregg Williams had organized bounty systems in New Orleans, Buffalo and Washington, some wanted to know if there had ever been one in Baltimore.

Joe Flacco beat Ben Roethlisberger at his own game and in his own building. Down four points with 2:24 to play and needing to go 92 yards, the Ravens' much-maligned quarterback led the defining drive of his young career. It ended with Flacco's hitting rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith in the corner of the end zone for a 26-yard touchdown with just eight seconds to go to lift the Ravens to a pulsating 23-20 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in front of an announced 64,851 at Heinz Field.

Raji, whose fourth-quarter interception return for a touchdown against the Bears paved the road to Dallas, can't wait to exploit perhaps the Steelers' only weakness.

It was about three weeks ago when Terrell Suggs said NFL officials look at the Ravens more closely than other teams. Well, if the officials didn't do this before, Suggs has certainly given them reason to do so. The NFL is "aggressively" investigating Suggs' recent comments on an Atlanta sports talk show that the Ravens had a "bounty" on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and running back Rashard Mendenhall (who suffered a season-ending shoulder...
