    I Wouldn't be shocked if Jones was the starter with Redman being the short yard specialist. Lsh being the change of pace rb.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Maybe Ben should be throwing for 425 yards and the RB's we have now can block until Bell is ready.

    I think if Felix Jones starts this game, then Redman will have to be Injured. Cause starting Felix Jones, when he was just picked up, and given nothing but preseason Reps against 3rd & 4th string defenders over a player like Redman, who has been here for years and who has busted his Butt would be a slap in the face. At least in my opinion. No, if Redman is healthy, then he starts. Although I am sure all three RB's get playing time Sunday.

    First of all, Redman's feelings don't matter, winning the game does. Second, Redman sat out almost all of the preseason with an injury. Does it really seem like a good idea to just make him the outright starter?

    If Redman starts against the Titans, that just has teacher's pet written all over it. There's no logical reason to start him over Jones.

    Le’Veon Bell hopes to play Week Two, Isaac Redman hopes to remain starter

    The Steelers running back situation heading into Week One looks different than most people imagined at the start of training camp.

    Second-round pick Le’Veon Bell is out with a foot injury and Jonathan Dwyer has been released while Felix Jones has a spot on the roster after being acquired in a trade with the Eagles. On Monday, Bell said that he hopes to be ready to play in the second week of the season. That would be a much quicker return to action than originally anticipated, although one currently healthy member of the running back corps hopes he’ll be able to convince the Steelers to let him keep the job.

    Scott Brown of ESPN.com reports that Isaac Redman said Monday that he’d be the starter against the Titans. Redman said that he’s planning on performing well enough to keep the team’s coaches from “wanting to put in anyone else” during the opener or later on down the road.

    It’s the only attitude for a player in Redman’s position to have, but he’ll need to perform far better than he has at any point in his career to turn his hope into reality. Bell was picked in the second round because the Steelers didn’t want to move forward with Redman and Dwyer as their backs, something they confirmed by releasing Dwyer even though Bell is out of action.

    I'm sorry but, does it make more sense to start a RB we got just over 10 days ago, who has absolutely zero time running with our first team O-Line ? Redman may have been slightly hurt the past 2 preseason games yes. But he also has multiple years working with most of this O-line...as well as practicing with them all through camp. Look, Felix is fine and all as a acquisition. But to suggest he would be a better starter over Redman, and even Howling, who also has practiced, and has played with this
    1st team O-Line is just nutty sir. I mean you are acting like Felix Jones is All-World. Dude did nothing for Dallas last year. And when he did play, Dallas was dead last in Rushing. What does that tell you ?

    And Redman has done what in is career.....?

    Look, no one is saying Felix Jones is a future HOFer. However, he IS better than Redman. Isaac Redman was part of a 26th ranked rushing attack. If the Steelers are really looking to improve their running game, why in the hell would they turn back to him?

    Redman had a nice game against the Giants last year..... time to move on from that.

    Felix should start over Redman. Redman has been injured.
