Steelers cut him from the PS today and Justin Vincent and Steve McLendon were brought back

Let the crying begin!

Well, Tomlin did say he was going to unleash hell in December. Maybe that was his nickname?

Our starting RB for 2010? Noooooo!!!! Biggest personnel gaffe since Kuhn! The "suddenness and glide" in our running attack is now gone! :chuckle:

I could take, or leave Redmen at this point. There's not enough history for me to form an opinion.

Vincent, on the other hand, seems to be our franchise practice squad player. Why? I have no idea. So I may have kept Redmen for just that reason. :noidea:

I don't know if this is a good or a bad thing, honestly... but I think we need a good closer on the team. Mendy has been good in this area at times but it seems like they're hesitant to use him in the red zone as of late, I guess because of those fumbles. Redman *might* have been the answer to out red zone runningback ineptitude, though I don't know. But we let him go again, for whatever reason.

That is truly sad. Sorry, 'Redzone'! You will be missed. :drink:

The team does this all the time. If no one picks up Redman, he could be reactivated at almost anytime... happens all the time....

How could no other team pick him up? Didn't they see him in preseason? He's one of the greatest preseason players in the history of the NFL! He's in the preseason hall of fame! His bust sits right next to all the Bengals preseason championship trophies.

I believe that hall of fame is located inside the rest stop on the Jersey turnpike. Mile marker 134.

The thing that puzzles me most is why we keep bringing Vincent back. It doesn't seem like he's ever got much of a shot at the active roster. Ahh well.

Giants will probably sign him; they need RBs right now.

Exactly. Really, though - at this point, where does he really fit into the active roster? I think he'll be back on the PS eventually but if another team grabs him - more power to him and I'll wish him the best of luck. :drink:

well, while we all do make fun of lakelander's comparison to him as a bigger fred taylor, im not really mocking Redman. Remember what we did with Willie Parker. In a couple of years he might be a contributor. Just sayin'

Has anyone else noticed that Moore isn't quite having the impact this season he had last season, that he looks slower, and out of sync...and last week he got stuffed so bad on a play that they actually gave Carey Davis some carries against the Ravens...did no one else notice this or am I late to the party?

Right and he never returns punts, he's just the fair catch guy isn't he?

yep...i think i heard the words "glide and smooth" in a deodorant commercial... but not suddeness, so i can't really determine if thats a fair trade..:noidea:
hey preacher ....any mention of "suddeness" and "glide" in the bible ?

I'm more inclined to say Marissa Miller has more glide. :drool: , but lacks the suddeness of Adriana Lima.

Sorry, but I wish Carey Davis would glide to the waiver wire.........with suddeness. :banging:

Nope. Being a UNLV alumni, I have great hopes for Frank Summers. I was sad the day they put him on IR. I suspect they did it mostly because he wasn't ready and they didn't want to lose him. Redman I could care less about. But Justin Vincent. Come on coach, There has to be someone better than that out there on the trash heap.

So do the Steelers have bigger plans for Vincent? Will he possibly take Willie Parker's spot next year? Just wondering, since he's always on the PS.

Could happen. He has been with us 2 years now.

I liked what he brought to the team in the pre-season to bad he didn't pan out this time. Maybe he will get another go around

Yes. I have been thinking the same thing. I don't know what it is this year, but he's not making as many yards after contact this year.

Also, that wrap-around-draw...that we like to give to Mewelde... is another play that needs to leave our playbook. It doesn't seem to fool anyone.

It could be that the league has found out that this guy can play and are paying a little more attention to him.
