    James Walker on Redzone Redman

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/pos...s-observations

    Finally, I’m going to offer the Steelers some free advice: Call up Isaac Redman from the practice squad.
    After watching Pittsburgh’s running backs get stuffed at the line of
    scrimmage time after time, I’m convinced “Redzone” is the best
    short-yardage option the team has. It’s not the end of the world to
    carry four tailbacks, and Redman rightfully won’t be the primary
    option. But even if he gets two carries a game that result in two first
    downs, he's worth the roster spot. The Steelers cannot expect to win
    every week going 4 of 14 on third-down conversions.

    Pour run BLOCKING is the biggest problem! My only reason for agreeing with you is that Redman keeps his feet moving and can push some guys forward! Mende needs some more carries too! We need to see, this season, what he can do.

    If Frank Summers gets cut as a result, then please do. But keep in mind not many runningbacks can get that 1-3 yards with three defensive lineman in their grille.

    Yeah Frank needs to pull his head out of his ***! Im not so sure that it is a lack of ability or the fact that he, Chris-K and Essex looked as though they didnt know who they were supposed to block! Thats sad, really!

    They will NOT bring him up to the active roster after 1 game where we played a great D Line and the run blocking was TERRIBLE. Plus it's only 1 game. The backs we have are capable the blocking was just terrible. It's only 1 game. If this turns into a constant problem against even sub-par Ds then maybe call him up. Everyone needs to chill out and relax.

    I like the idea of letting our franchise QB work his magic on those 3rd and 1s.......I know Arians said he doesn't want to use the FB anymore but the Bengals have just a blocking fullback on their practice squad and his name is Chris Pressley......Pressley looks like a badass as a lead blocker....It couldn't hurt at this point to sign him and cut Summers.......

    Steelcityrockers - that's the point I was making...it's only 1 game.

    it's only 1 game.
    it's only 1 game.
    it's only 1 game.
    it's only 1 game.
    it's only 1 game.
    it's only 1 game.
    it's only 1 game.
    it's only 1 game.

    Get the point?
