Default Goal line and short yardage back?

So who is our short yardage back now that we cut Redman? It is Summers even though we haven't even see what he can do with the ball? Or is it Mendenhall, who is fumble prone in the pile. I'm not completely suprised to see Redman cut, but I thought he would make the team because he was by far our best option in short yardage.

Willie Parker is my best guess

I agree with you there. Parker will be used more on goal line.

i don't think it matters until the O-line opens some holes.

I'd say likely Mendy. He is not a power back, but I liked how he picked up a first down in the Carolina game. I'm not sure Summers will be active on game days. It comes down between Summers and Johnson and David can be a third TE or a fullback. Summers can play fullback or halfback, but there would be 3 halfbacks in front of him on the depth chart.

As long as the OL does its job, we shouldn't need a specialized goal-line/short-yardage back, any of our guys should be able to do it.

Parker until he fails, then Mendenhall until he fumbles, then we blame it all on the O-Line. And after that, we get bitched at because we bitch about the O-Line too much, and we're just fans running our mouths after all, and GOD how i can't stand how people come in here after a loss and say the sky is falling, so I'll just trust that the front office knows what they're doing, etc., etc...

But nah, it's gonna be a long season running the ball for short yardage again, unless Mendenhall and/or Tank steps it up. Screw Parker; he's only as good as the people in front of him, and that should be obvious by now.
