    also, peter king is an idiot. i would kill for his job though
    Hi K Train.

    Although I disagree that Dwyer is "clearly" the superior back (based on what?), I think we can both take comfort in the knowledge that both backs will get plenty of touches as long as Mendy is out. One guy running 30 times per game is just not done much anymore. They will settle it on an NFL field, playing behind an NFL line and running against an NFL defense instead of vanilla defenses played by people whose ultimate destination will be a practice squad.

    There's no way on this green earth that Dwyer gets the lions share of the carries over Redman unless that groin injury turns out to be more serious than we think now. The experience factor will always play into it with the Steelers when choosing starters.

    You gotta admit Ktrain, Redman atleast deserves a shot to start based on what he's done the last two years right?

    The coaching staff work with both players every day and they choose Redman over Dwyer for a reason, Ktrain is a hater plain and simple.

    I have to agree with Blitz. I'm on record in saying I think Dwyer is better. But If Redman is healthy, he should get the initial start. It's Dwyer's job to beat him out.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    its not plain and simple hate, dont try and make it look that way. I do not think redman is NFL quality and skipping him proving that would be better than suffering through his mediocrity. I do not have a problem with him on the roster, ive spent countless hours saying why i dont think hes anything more than a marginally serviceable starter but i also think he has a role, its just not a starting one or it shouldnt be at least. Hes done nothing to earn it, hes jsut managed to stick around longer than anyone else, his actual body of work is nothing, and even though its more than dwyer.....its still just such a small amount of experience in the big scheme of things, its not rocket science to run the football. If dwyer is in shape which until this year he hasnt been, hes the more talented back, has the higher ceiling, and is the bigger investment. What you see with redman is what you get, hes maxed out, i think dwyer deserves a shot and if he does well we could have a back thats tradable in 2 years ala michael turner in SD or our very own starting RB

    Peter king lives up to his first name and acts like his last name. I don't get SI anymore because of his bloviating.

    SI has needed more new blood for years now. Most of those guys will still tell you Don Shula is the best coach they ever saw.

    The oline has been bad the last six years. They are a work in progress. I believe Adams and decastro will grow. Give them more than one preseaeson game. geez!
    Cleveland Browns suck!
