Default Redman's Contributions in Post Season Shouldn't Go Unnoticed

Redman's Contributions in Post Season Shouldn't Go Unnoticed
http://bowie.patch.com/articles/redm...t-go-unnoticed
Bowie State's all-time top rusher made a difference in the Steeler's red-zone offense this season, and has a bright future in the NFL.
By Jeff Seidel | Email the author | 3:05pm

Former Bowie State running back Isaac Redman has helped the Pittsburgh Steelers all season long. He came through again in last Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Redman had two carries for 19 yards, both of which set up a Pittsburgh touchdown and added a kickoff return but it wasn’t enough as the Green Bay Packers handed the Steelers a 31-25 defeat in Super Bowl XLV in Dallas.

Redman, the all-time top rusher at Bowie State, has slowly grown into a good back-up running back that the Steelers can depend upon in certain situations. Coach Mike Tomlin turned to him in the second half as Pittsburgh tried to rally from an 18-point first-half deficit.

The former Bowie State back’s work began on the first drive of the third quarter. He got three yards on one carry and then, moments later, Redman bounced outside and got free for a 16-yard run to the Green Bay 8-yard line.

That run sets up Rashard Mendenhall’s 8-yard touchdown on the following play, a score that sliced the Green Bay lead to 21-17.

Pittsburgh still kept rallying after the Packers stretched the lead to 28-17. The Steelers cut it to 28-25 before Green Bay added a Mason Crosby field goal with 2:07 left.

Crosby’s ensuing kickoff came to Redman, who returned it 12 yards. But the Steelers couldn’t move the ball downfield, and Green Bay hung on for its fourth Super Bowl championship.

Redman ran for 247 yards during the regular season. He added 50 yards on seven carries in post-season play for an impressive 7.1 yards per carry. Redman was still averaging over six yards per carry coming into the Super Bowl.

After spending much of last year on the practice squad, Redman gave the Steelers a good extra running back that helped their offense and ran well in the “red zone.” He’s certainly shown he can run in the NFL, and if Pittsburgh doesn’t want to keep him, someone else would certainly have interest.

Assuming that Dwyer pans out we should have a stable of quality running backs for several years.

Redman was underutilized - I look for more of him in 2011 unless Tomlin wants to repeat the Willie Parker game plan and run Mendenhall until the wheels fall off

I agree. While Redman certainly looks good when he plays, he is most definitely underutilized. I want to see him get 5-10 carries per game.

That's what I fear is that Tomlin is not using Redman enough and is overusing Mendy. 320+ carries is too much in today's NFL. Life span of RB's is short enough. If you run the wheels off of them, you'll be looking in the draft again.

He'll continue to be under utilized as long as Arians remains pulling the strings . . .
