Seemed like Redman had more then 50 yards like the stat chart shows, he definetly ran well, and Dwyer was excellent on his few plays. It could have been the O line difference too which gave us such a great running game, but Redman just put his head down and picked up yards.

Hokie has that old Steeler look to him....He looks and plays like a Steeler of the 70's.

Time for change, this whole thread makes sense, Hoke and the running back situation needs to change. Casey had his time, seriously being big doesn't fit the need anymore. Time to get back to the basics, if Hoke is getting it done, so be it, Casey needs to sit. It was an awesome sight to see pressure on the QB and the DL sliding down the line to make a tackle. Not at the 2nd and 3rd level, now the RB situation, I think it speaks for itself, Redman and Dwyer ran North and South, Mendenhall llikes to run East and West, the end ends up being North East or Southwest. Redman and Dwyer take what is there, what is given to them, Mendy wants to exploit what is given and tries to let the play develop. Just hit the hole and run, I think Dwyer showed what happens when you hit the hole and run, 76 yards later.

I agree with all of that. But to me the bigger difference is Hood playing for Smith. Hoke did play better then Hampton has been, but Hampton wasn't playing bad and wasn't the problem. I agree that Hoke probably should get the start at least next game, but what will kill this team is if we put Smith back in for Hood, he's the main reason we haven't gotten pressure or been able to stop the run.
