Cool Isaac Redman

Is it just me or does he not look like a combination of Ray Rice and Pocket Hercules every time his number is called?

I like him. After his training camp, and pre-season games I thought he would shine as a Sub for Mendy at RB and our redzone bulldoizer. However he has been kinda a disappointment. I mean 0 TD's rushing. Yes I know he did CATCH one of the biggest TD's of the season that basically gave us the division. But after camp, I thought Redman was gonna be a 170-200 carry RB for 800-850 Yds and 10 + TD's.

But... how many times has he been given the ball in the red zone? Don't they usually go with Mendy?

Yeah, and Moore too for some odd reason. I just don't think they give him enough carries to be effective, especially in the red zone.

It's not at all clear to me why Moore is still preferred to Redman in the rotation for Mendenhall.
Do you know we're something like 90% converting 3rd-and-1 this year?
That's VERY different to last year and the reason why is Isaac Redman.
His only real play against Balt was one of the more awesome moments of that game when he just plain juked an onrushing RayRay in the backfield and made 5 yards to convert.

I guess what I mean is I wish maybe the team would have reduced Mendy's carries say from the 324 he got to say in the 250-260 range, and gave an extra 65-70 to Redman. I guess none of us can be disappointed in 13 TD's by Mendenhall. And he has done better with the screen passes this season. I just wanted to get Redman some more carries just in case of an Injury to Mendy.

He looks great when his number is called. Wish Air Head would call that
number more.

he may not be "on details" in practice.

tomlin is pretty high on that details crap and all players knowing the entire offense/defense.

I'm willing to reserve judgement on Dwyer until next year, after he's had some more time. Redman didn't get the call last year either and I see improvement in him this year. Redman will be even better next year and, hopefully, Dwyer can fill his spot so Moore becomes expendable. I like Mewelde, but I think his time with us is up.

That's because Dwyer offers nothing to this football team apart from disappointment.
