    Rainey wasn't that great rushing. But catching passes out the backfield, he's awsome. Rainey is clearly a third down RB. I wonder who is going to win that battle between him and Batch? It will be interesting.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Have to wonder if this will end DJ's career. He is a good blocker, but he will be a FA next year. He probably won't get any outside interest next year now.

    It doesn't help his cause when the o-line plays like shat.

    Rainey has to be able to run the ball just a little or the third down RB thing will never workout because opposing teams will know the only reason he is in the game is to catch a pass.

    Rainey is clearly not an every down back but he is very good at running delays and draws. He's a very good runner out of the shotgun. Love that little f*cker...

    We will need all our backs until Mendy gets healthy. You will see Redman's value to keep the chains moving late in games on 3rd and 4th downs.

    Making the tough yards to get the first down doesn't show up in the box-score, but it is very important. This keeps the ball away from the other team's offense.
