Default Awfully thin at RB

Ben is going to stay.

Now that we've gotten that over with, don't you guys think we are awfully thin at RB? We got Mendenhall and Mewelde but we definitely need another runner. I'm surprised we didn't get another veteran as a free agent. I wonder if Redman is ready to step up or if the FO plans to take a RB high. Hopefully not another headcase.

Mendenhall can be an every down back. Mewelde can be backup. Isaac Redman isthere if anything happens. so, no.

I think we're ok...

Mendy, Moore, Summers (his main position is RB...and I think he can be the short yardage/power back that he was in college), and even Redman...and throw in some Logan.

Though I still think they might draft one

We have no idea what redmen and summers can do. They're both players who excelled in college against crappy teams.

Moore had an overrated campaign in '08 against more crappy teams and he's a 3rd down back is all he is.

Rashard is our man.

No one on this team is capable of being a good starter is Rashard goes down. Yeah, we need an RB.

I hope Tank does well this year, he seemed lost the little he played last year. I do think we will have to add a RB. Vincent is still with us but I don't know why...

I'm intrigued by Blount, but after this off-season I'm not so sure that the team will risk it. Although, I have to admit that the only negative that I've seen or heard about him was the punch.

I used to believe that if headcase type players came to the Steelers, that there was a good chance that the strong team unity mentality would help reform them.

With tone gone and Ben with his messes, I am not naive enough to believe that anymore.
