Default The Redman should be start Poll

Today he proved to me he is better than mende hands down, he runs the right direction and actually breaks tackles, and hes 27, hes got a few years. Should Redman start?

Odds are Mende won't be back anyway. Blowing his ACL in January going into the final year of his contract doesn't help. Since we're now a pass first offense (as much as I hate it), Redman will have no problem taking his spot.

if Mendy does not start he needs to go. can't pay that money for a #2.

Redman had 95 last week and over 100 this week. did Mendy put together 2 back to back games like that this year?

Mendenhall just can't even fall forward, Redman refuses to lose a yard. He just wants it more and I think he's earned it.

and this is where I lose faith as a fan...Tomlin claims that performance is judged on tape and what you put on it. When I see Redman run, I see a runner making that second effort and falling forward to get that extra yard. I don't see that with Mendy. I see an indecisive and impatient runner who averages 3.3 yards a carry. Mendy is clearly the more blessed athlete but Redman is simply the more effective runner. Here's a novel idea, how about spelling the two and balancing out the workload? Nope, you'll never see that so long as Arians is running the show.

If mendys contract is up. No way we sign him, he will want some long term thing, and he is 8 months away from running frull steam. Not even worth killing the cap for that.
