There's no way that you can assume that he would only gain a yard a carry if he became a starter, seeing as he gained almost 7 yards a carry today.
    Here's how I know, because he runs straight a head. He doesn't run around anyone. Mendy will lose yards from dancing around, but he can also get big yards bouncing to the outside, it's like a risk reward situation.

    Redman wont do this, he runs down hill straight ahead. This line sucks. When Arians calls a run up the gut and there is no hole, Redman is useless, he'll run into his own linemen and fall down.

    But when Arians calls a play to the right where the left guard and tight end pull to that side to help create some holes, Redman, and even Moore have had success. This is a play that the Steelers have used since the 90's. Arians has adopted it, but he rarely calls it.

    People think Redman is actually shoving defensive linemen out of the way, he's not, he's just been running straight ahead and when there happens to be a hole there, he has success... He is a very good runner when he's in the open field, but he is no better than an average running back in the backfield and he just runs into his offensive linemen and falls to the ground.

    I'm pretty sure you're proving my point and not your own..

    Redman ran for 40 yards on 6 carries today. I don't understand how you can dispute what's right in front of you.

    Redman's running style leads you to believe through common sense and what he's done on the field that he is the answer right now. I certainly am not writing off Rashard Mendenhall or saying he should be cut. He's done well as the workhorse for this team since he's gotten here. His running style though doesn't work well with a line as bad as this one is.

    Even last year, the line was in trouble but the guys that came in were able to atleast get a decent push in the run game and he was able to use his athletic ability to make plays. He can't even get started because he's trying to do too much instead of taking what little he's being given. Stop the dancing and hit the hole. Redman does it, and Rashard needs to as well. A 1-2 punch is all well and good but right now we're only at a 1 punch.

    Not even a 1 punch. Like a .5 punch.

    Fight
    Exactlly what i have been saying for a while now, Mendy is scared to hit the hole lacks toughness
    "Without ME, it's just AWESO"
    and
    "To all the virgins, thanks for nothing"
