Something else interesting too, Redman appears to see the field better than Mendenhall does this year. His vision and finding the right crease to go after and then hitting it hard allows him to grind out those 1st downs. Rashard is capable of doing it, he's a very powerful back too, but for whatever reason he takes a second or two longer to decide and by then it's light out.
I love Redman and I do agree he should get more than just a few carries a game, but did you guys watch the same game I did? When Mendy was in there, there were no holes at all and the line was getting pushed back right off the snap. When Redman and Moore were in there, the line was opening holes and pushing the defense back. It seems as though they started pulling Kemo and others to the right as a lead blocker. They weren't doing that for Mendy. Open holes for Mendy and he'll have just as much success.
Vonte Leach was a great lead blocker for the Texans last year helping Arian Foster out, but he is on the Ravens this year helping out Ray Rice. Vonte Leach killed us in week 1.
I would love to see the Steelers go back to using a real FB.
I miss the days of the fullback as well.
