    I'm so excited to see him start this week....I have been a fan of this kid since day 1~
    he's such an explosive exciting RB......he's gonna have a stellar game!

    I know the 2 fumbles were bad but so out of character for him.....won't happen again!

    GO REDMAN GO!!!!

    He can now prove his place in the NFL. He will play fine. he is a bull...

    Now lets get someone to block for him in short yardage. Clay.. maybe... 85

    Redman is many things, but explosive is not one of them. Arian Foster is explosive. Chris Johnson is (was) explosive. AP is explosive. Redman is not explosive. Not saying he is terrible, but he is not an explosive type of running back. He'll get the ball, run to his designated gap and run through it. That is pretty much it. The good thing is that Redman have decent success with our o-line with that style of running since he gets to the gap pretty fast.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    I'd rather have Redman be slower and plow through the line then get to the LOS quickly, then dance and spin until he's tackled for a two yard loss...

    Haha, but Redman will not "run wild". He's not that type of back. I do have faith that he'll earn the hard yards in short yardage situations and move the chains. That's his role and that's what he'll do.

    Ditto, Mendy blew his knee out trying to cut, that could of happened at the line with all the 90-0 he does.

    I also agree Redman isn't a Pro Bowler, not even close..

    I dont think Bettis was all that fast of a runner. Not all the fastest runners in the NFL are great lmfao. If BA calls 75 passes we will lose. Have you seen Ben these past few weeks? He has been awful down the stretch of the season also. Ben isnt gonna put this team on his back to win a playoff game this year. Its gonna take a total team effort. Since week 10 Bens has thrown 6 td's and 6int's, not exactly lighting it up there.

    Redman will Move the Chains... Ben needs to get this idea into his passing game too.

    Move the Chains Steelers... Move the Chains...

    As long as he and Clay take care of the ball, I like the Steelers to commit to 40 carries for 155 yards and 2 TD's. Still under 4 YPC, but it will be time consuming and it will take the pressure off Ben to make a play on every down. Key here is to stay out of 3rd and long.
