Default Redman told to "get ready " for this week Vs. Chargers

This is a quote off of CBS Sports, 10/2/09: Steelers RB Isaac Redman may be activated from the practice squad this week. "The coaches told me to just be ready. They told me to make sure I know the offense and the game plan for the week."


Coool......

As reported in the Trib this morning:

Quote:
Rookie free agent Isaac Redman took some first-team reps on goal-line drills and could be activated from the practice squad if Parker doesn't play against the Chargers. "Just trying to stay prepared,'' Redman said. "I work hard every day in practice so when I do get a chance it comes natural.''


Redman was a goal-line sensation during training camp so his release came as a surprise to some. Since being signed to the practice squad, he hasn't been activated for a game. But that could change because of Parker's status. Rashard Mendenhall took first-team reps in practice all week and Mewelde Moore will also get some carries along with being the third-down back. "They said it's a possibility,'' Redman said about being activated for Sunday's game. "I really have no clue what's going on. They gave me a couple of reps and told me to be ready.''

To have the extra body I understand but they drafted Mendehhall to be a "power" back this is time to do it or it will continue to look like he is a bust.

Rashard Mendenhall, Mewelde Moore and Carey Davis will be doing our RB work tomorrow. Redman will only see time if 1 of those 3 go down.

I'm not saying to start the guy or anything, but I think it would be pretty darn silly to not let him see some reps in a real game time situation, especially if they plan to just re-cut him when Parker comes back.

Can he show that fire he had in preseason, despite what the coaches may or may not have seen in practice? Why not find out? Why give another team a chance to pick him up without even finding out what we may have?

It's not like it would be some huge risk to have the guy taking some snaps. Its not like he has fumbalitis or anything. Basically, if 1. he isn't a liability, and 2. he may actually be pretty darn good and 3. we can find out very easily......then it would be silly to not let guy play so Mendie, Moore, and Davis can handle the snaps...guys that we have locked up already.

Redman will get one or two carries at moment. It's going to be Mendy / Moore combo.

I have really wanted Mendy to succeed and have been dying for him to get more carries, but quite honestly at this point I don't care who it is that steps up- whether it be Parker, Mendy, Moore or Redman. We just need SOMEBODY to step up and start getting this running game going.
