Then reality struck and Kuhn was a Steelers bust ... those that came out in support of him were lambasted and he became a running joke on these forums as a friendly reminder for us to temper our enthusiasm for undrafted rookie RB's.

... and now I'm stuck with my Redman stigma eternally ....

Thanks 76 I should have done a search!
Thanks for thatLakelander
I understand that any future RB`s will always have to overcome the Bettis comparison and you never know Redman might `be the one`.
