... Is up for trade. I say make the deal, because Schiano wants to bring in his own guys (and did with Martin), so Blount may be sent away cheaply. He's a huge dude with a fiery attitude and hasn't had any real problems since his college incident (that I recall, anyway). Just don't give him 47 and I say he'd be an awesome addition to a pretty lame backfield.

I agree with Killer, Blount would not bring anything to this team that we dont allready have.

He's another Jonathan Dwyer. Fatback that had 2 good games. No thanks.

we already have 2 back-up RB's

he is not loved in Tampa



Can't block, can't catch, can't hit the hole without doing the Aztec Two Step in the backfield first.

a guy with his athletic ability gets tossed around like a rag doll, and couldn't pick up a blitz if it was laying on the floor in front of him wearing a sign saying "pick me up" and he catches out of the backfield about as well as I do.

I would rather Bradshaw than anyone, Blount has just shown flashes of pretty good ability. While I admittedly have not seen a large amount of his games, I figured he'd be worth a shot for such a low price.

Id rather draft a stud #1 and have dwyer back him up with redman as a third down back.

He is a head case. We don't deal with players like him.

I'd rather draft a running back. He has some head issues, and he hasn't proven he could be an elite back in this league. Why give up anything for him?

He is injury prone and he will cost too much. Also, where would he run behind the Steelers' inconsistent O-line?

The draft is fine as long as they don't waste a pick on a RB in the early rounds

Bradshaw is a much better target.

As for Blount, if they would take a 6th, I'd do it.
He has to have more talent than a RB drafted in the sixth round. Right?

Bradshaw is one of the all-time greatest Steelers but you guys are crazy to think he could play running back! He has been on Fox Sports for years- isn't he in his 60s by now?! Not to mention he played quarterback in the 70s and wasn't much of a scrambler. I have to say I admire your loyalty but I respectfully disagree that Bradshaw could play halfback in today's NFL.

why not? Bradshaw is obviously still in very good shape...

Fumbles too much, can't catch, can't pick up a blitz, and not a very effective runner more often than not. No thanks.

If we needed someone with a good sucker punch, I'd be all for it, but other than that, I'll pass.

it was just an example - we have enough guys that can do that


for example

Redman 2012 had one good game, then never broke 50 yds a game the rest of the year

game 1... 11 carries 20 yds
game 2... 12 rushes 25 yds
game 5 ...13 rushes 41 yds

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5544/isaac-redman



Dwyer had a highlight year in comparison, two big games +

game 10... 19 rushes 56 yds
game 11....12 rushes 55 yds
game 12... 9 rushes 19 yds
game 13...16 rushes 49 yds
game 16....14 rushes 39 yds

To be fair the the RBs, they were hit in the backfield often. That's on the line.

and Haley - oh yeah - let's line the single RB up 8 yds deep in the backfield on a 3rd and 1 - he must have done that dozens of times - idiot


How many times did we get stuffed?

a whole lot as I remember

part of the problem with our RB's was after Roethlisberger was hurt defenses could just stack the box against us. Before BB went down we were having more success. Dwyer and Redman were pretty good at getting positive yards out of nothing.

Our 3rd and short and 4th and short attempts were pretty poor though.

He'd be our best H-back/ TE right now too.

Mendenhall when healthy was stuffed behind a bad line. He had over 3000 yards rushing?

Not arguing number of fumbles, just the way they hold on to the ball. Mendy is lucky he has not had 3x the fumbles he has had so far. He holds the ball out like he's "James Worthy", ready for a spin to the basket.

I don't care if he balances the ball on his nose as long as he can maintain possession. The ends justify the means imo.
