Default Re: The Redman should be start Poll

I've liked redman better since last year on his limited reps. Been telling my bro that redman is the better back. He can't make the homerun play like mendy can, BUT that rarely happens anyways. I'll take the (almost) guaranteed 3+ yards per carry out of redman than the 2 big plays a season from Mendy.
In His defense I don't think rashard was utilized properly though. I felt bad for him and kind if wished he was on a team with a better OC and OL. Kind of a wasted career Esp. With the Injury.

I like both...I do like how hard redman runs compared to mendy, I think he runs harder and fights for extra yards needed in the situation more than mendy does...

Gotta see what happens to mendy

I voted to make Mendenhall second string, because he plays harder when Redman gets more carries. And yes honestly I think Redman runs the ball better, at least between the tackles.... At the same time I could see Mendenhall gone, and getting someone in the middle rounds... maybe Polk from Washington? Also let's not forget about Batch, Clay, and even Dwyer....

I hope we go to camp next year with both. Redman has been an amazing find. I still wonder if he could be the lead back for 16 games with his style of running. He always seems to go forward but he can't run away from defenders.

On the other hand, Mendy at his best, is always a threat to run away from defenders. He can dance at times but he gets a bad rap for that, his o-line has been s*it lately.

I hope he returns healthy and ready to compete, led by an offensive coordiantor that maybe could figure out a way to use both, in the same backfield.

Wait, you cant' do that, you need a true fullback, not two halfbacks.
Yeah, you're right, where would we be without David Johnson.

The only danger with starting Redman is the same one that exists anytime a guy comes off the bench and does better than the starter, and that danger is that he's only playing at full speed because he wants the position and will back off the gas pedal a bit once he gets the job. I think Issac knows though that, if he gets the job, Batch is waiting in the wings along with Clay to eventually try a run at it, and he'll only continue to get better. That being said, I think Mendenhall peaked rather quickly, and hasn't really shown himself as a top tier player.

That, and the fact that the change-of-pace back almost always has the higher average per carry and so looks better. Redman had one good game this past year as a starter. His first game as a starter, Dwyer made him look silly, because Dwyer was then the change-of-pace back.

I'm not against the idea of starting Redman next year. Mendenhall is likely out of the team's future plan anyway. But in the long term the Steelers do need to pick another explosive back IMO.
