Default Redman over Mendy?

Redman went into the game late and destroyed the Texans, I think it might be time for a switch. Redman is a bruiser and seems to always get the yards he needs.

Mendy had four carries for 34 yards while Redman had six carries for 40 yards. I don't know what they should do, but they need to do something quickly.

Seems Mendy can't be convinced to run north-south, Redman 100%!!!

I'd be happy to see him get the chance.

I'd expect the Steelers to go after an RB in the first 4 rounds of the draft. I'd go back to the old days of Bettis/Willie. Redman to ground & pound, and a young speedster, a la Chris Johnson or Jamaal Charles, to get to the corner and up the field.

But obviously our coaching staff isn't ballsy enough to make the switch.

Redman absolutely. I've been saying this for at least a year. Mendenhall is terrible!

Redman, over the length of a game he will force the defense to bring up an extra defender opening up the passing lanes.

He just gets positive yardage, and fights for them.

Bouchette votes for Redman

The more I watch, the more and more I'm convinced that for this offense right now Isaac Redman is a better fit at running back than Rashard Mendenhall. Redman runs straight ahead, pushes linemen back and can get yards when the holes are not there and also hits the holes quickly when they are. Mendenhall is a thorougbred once he gets through the holes, but he cannot for the most part. Mendenhall has 173 yards on 48 carries (3.0), and Redman has 107 on 22 (4.9).
