"By committing to a primary runner as opposed to a runner by committee has also played a big role in that," Starks told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette this week. "Having a guy know he can run -- and if it doesn't go well, they're going to shelve him and put a guy in for couple plays. Knowing you're committed to him and allowing him to get a feel for the game, to get into a rhythm with us, I think that's the biggest thing, having that continuity."

IDK if that was the quote you were looking for...

I don't know either... I was half awake...

Thanks, though... it touches upon what I was saying.

I overheard BB and Tomlin talking this morning, at Starbucks:

TOMLIN: Man, I have problems...

BB: Me,too.

TOMLIN: I have to decide which one of these RBs to start.

BB: I have too many receivers, but only one ball.

TOMLIN: Dwyer had back-to-back 100 yard games, and was alternating between juking players and running over people.

BB: Sounds a lot like Heath Miller... who I love to throw to.

TOMLIN: Then, there is Droppy Mendenspin, who bursts through the hole, and then leaves everyone in his rearview mirror.

BB: Hmmm... reminds me of Mike Wallace.

TOMLIN: Then there is Redman, who jukes & spins and plows forward, when necessary, in order to get that first down yardage... and then some.

BB: Wait... are you talking about AB???

TOMLIN: Then, I have this other guy who could start for a few teams, and is just plain good.

BB: Ah.. Cotchery?

TOMLIN: Well, him too... but, I was talking about Chris Rainey.

BB: Ah... I like passing to him, as well.

TOMLIN: So,..???

BB: So... what???

TOMLIN: Which one do I start?

BB: I'll make you a deal. You tell me who to throw the ball to, and I will tell you to start at RB.

TOMLIN: Deal. You first.

BB: Uh... you first.

TOMLIN: Uh... wow... hmmm...

BB: Man, we've got problems.

Ok, Tomlin told Ben "Screw Wallace, throw it to Heath."

Then Ben told Tomlin to start Mendenhall, then Redman and lastly Dwyer. After that, Ben leaned over to Tomlin, and whispered in his ear "Chris Rainey says "Thanks for the compliment, but I can't be a starting back for any team in the NFL."

Essentially, Tomlin commented about wanting to choose one RB to get most of the snaps, because it would help the O-line.

Similarly, over the years, I've heard other O-linemen (on ESPN, on the radio, at the gym)) talk about liking "one" RB better than a "committee"... because then then know how long to hold a block & such... and that they get timing with that "one" RB.
First off....sorry about the sleep deprivation, but its our badge of honor as parents.

I wish I heard that bit on the radio, because its not making entire sense to me. Guys have to keep blocking until the whistle, not until they think the RB is by them. On a combination block it may make a bit more sense, but realistically........there isnt much time difference between how long it takes Dwyer or Rainey to get to the line of scrimmage from 5 yards deep in the backfield.

I think its more mental than anything. Before you can beat the team opposing you, you have to beat the guy in front of you. O linemen have to worry about beating the guy in front of them and not who is getting the ball behind them!!! (that's my krusty o line coach impression of the day-- rant)

SLEEP DEPRIVATION: The cool thing is that I actually like it. My wife "got" (had) to be the one to get up, when the baby was breast feeding... and now, I am the one who "gets" (gets) to be up. It is a nice bonding time... different than when the baby is fully awake.

O-LINE: You would know more about O-line play than I do... but, with that said, I know that I've heard this time & time again (that O-linemen like getting in a rhythm with "one" RB). I remember specifically, when the Eagles O-line was having to block for Ricky Watters and someone else... and they wanted the coach to pick "one" RB.

My vote would be Dwyer with Redman backing him up. And that with a nickel will get you a nickel.

WooHoo. My 100th post! I know that might not seem like a lot to anyone but for me that's a good accomplishment and I get to share it with my Steelers friends!

I love this place!

If Dwyer is 100% I would go with him. It is no knock on Redman as he would do just as well. I just have a gut feeling about Dwyer.
