Redman stars in goal-line scrimmage

LATROBE -- Isaac Redman is fast becoming a camp sensation.

On Sunday, the rookie running back stole the show during a seven-play goal-line scrimmage. Redman carried on all seven plays from the 1-yard line and scored on five of them.

On the first two of Redman’s TDs, he was running with the first-team offense. His first three TDs came against the first-team defense.

“He’s our best player,” shouted quarterback Ben Roethlisberger after the impressive performance by the undrafted free agent out of Bowie State, an NCAA Division II progam..

Well, here's hoping you're right, Lakelander.

I would be the first to rejoice if Redman works out for us. We miss having a short yardage option, or at least something reliable when we want to grind out the clock late in games.

I found this on CBS Rapid Reports (yeah, I know):

2:06:10 pm Steelers RB Isaac Redman could be the biggest surprise of training camp. The undrafted rookie went 5-for-7 in goal line drills against the first defensive unit. FB Frank Summers was his blocking back.

Here's hoping...

GO STEELERS!!

It says 3 against the first team defense...5 total.

Surprised that Roethlisberger would say he's our best player...which would have to be heard in it's context to fully understand his meaning.....could it be a misquote.....nahhhhh, that never happens...

Roethlisberger was being sarcastic...

It would be FANTASTIC if we really found our short/GL back. I'm reserving judgment...

Maybe in the next week or so. we will see summers run the ball 15 times at goal line and see redman block...

That would be interesting to see redmans blocking ability. we know summers is a short yardage brusier...

hopefully he gets a crack at it like redman has had his chances.

Well, I guess we got to learn a little more about Redman last night. Doesn't look like the Steelers are too high on him. He only got a couple carries and they didn't use him in any short yardage or goaline situations. No Frank Summers either at fullback.

Oh well.

Frank Summers didn't play last night due to a hammy.

I wouldn't read to much into one preseason game. Each one is going to focus on different positions. Last night was not Redman's time.
