Default RedZone Redman

Looks like he may have found a roster spot, what do you all think?

I think I'd take him over Tank. They'd be crazy to let him go.

He looks really slow. He may make the roster, but he's nothing that special.

Just need him to pound it for 2 to 3 yards or punch it into the endzone, don't need to be too speedy for that role.

Maybe not, but he sure gave him alot of time in the second half to show what he can do. I'm not saying he is the next Bettis or Foster or even Bam Morris, but I think he will make the team based on his play tonite. If not, then at least the practice squad.

Still playing against backups. Not that impressed. He should power through their backups if he was really any good. He is certainly better than Justin Vincent though.

Exactly, players that low on the food chain have to be useful to the team elsewhere.

Well, he is a backup as well so I think that cancels itself out.
