    Who starts at RB this week?

    Who do you guys think is going to get the nod this week now that Mendenhall and Dwyer are both listed as doubtful for this week. Redman and Batch are probable and then you have Rainey. Out of all of the available I think its pretty obvious to go with Redman but what do you guys think? How do you think that would affect the running game?

    Redman no doubt.....I think his style is perfect on how to attack the Giants defense.....Don't get me wrong I don't think Redman is going to have a monster game but I do think he will be effective.......I would like see some more of Rainey in this game as the perfect change of pace......Redman 90 combined yards and a TD this week.....60+ on the ground and another 30 receiving......

    Redman for sure hopefully they have a decent day and keep their pass rushers honest. Giants pass D is not good at all so I look for Ben to put up huge numbers.

    I agree Dwyer was due to get bottled up, a change of pace with Redman might not be a bad thing for this game. Though I still think red is a scrub! I hope he proves me wrong.

    Redman is what he is just a role player who is a nice fit in a RB combo/trio....I just think his style will be effective against the Giants defense....I'm not looking for Redman to have a huge game but just a solid one...

    I wouldn't say Redman is a complete scrub. When he gets going he can break one even though he doesn't have the speed that Rainey or Mendenhall has. Not to mention, he is great catching passes out of the backfield. That 100 yard receiving game a few weeks ago proved how versatile he could be.

    He could be huge, but IMO he runs lazy!

    I agree sometimes I see him running lazy. I just think he needs some confidence.

    No Jonathan Dwyer equals no running game which will spell disaster against the Giants.
