That was what we did when we were 31st in rushing offense. I'll take what we've done the past 3 weeks personally

A bad move rising?

If Jonathan Dwyer and/or Isaac Redman continue to pound out 100-yard games and the Steelers return to Rashard Mendenhall when he's healthy, it will rank among the more controversial decisions in a while at a skilled offensive position.

It will be reminiscent of that brilliant decision the coaching staff made in 2003 when it picked Amos Zereoue in training camp to bump Jerome Bettis out of his starting job. Or another in 2000 when Hines Ward was temporarily bumped from his starting job so they could install their two first-round picks, Troy Edwards and rookie Plaxico Burress, as the starting wide receivers.

Another one worth recalling came in 1992. With Neil O'Donnell nursing an injury toward the end of that season, Bubby Brister, pictured inset, guided the Steelers to a 4-2 record down the stretch. The Steelers earned a playoff seed and had a week off before the Buffalo Bills came to town. Bill Cowher decided to return to O'Donnell at quarterback and he obviously was either rusty or not ready and in Three Rivers Stadium the Bills drubbed the Steelers, 24-3, in Cowher's first playoff game.

It would be Brister's last game with the Steelers, and he went out the door saying about O'Donnell, "I can out-throw him, and outrun him."

Why should it be one or the other?

Go with both and let them spell each other.

Today's NFL, you're better off with a stable of backs. I love the depth right now, because how many teams could have this many injuries at the RB position and actually improve their running game as the season goes along.

With these 3 backs, (Mendy, Redman, Dwyer) plus a sprinkling of Rainey I like our running game and have no injury worries the rest of the year. As long as 1 of the big 3 can play.

Taking in the consideration that Redman has been battling injuries since the first game of preseason, I'd start him since he's earned that starting job with Mendenhall out. He's one of the best blocking RBs in the league and a good reciever out of the backfield. We've seen what he can do when healthy. No knock on Dwyer what so ever. If at all possible get them both on the field as much as possibe. I've been telling anybody who'll listen that once all of these guys get healthy, Haley going to have to really earn his money. The potential of our offense is ridiculous with all of these guys 100% if used effectively.

I say Redman. He has really been doing a fabulous job of handling the ball and responding to the plays. He is one of the few players earning their pay in my opinion.

That has more to do with Mike Adams starting and Colon getting comfortable at guard.

Which was starting who was healthy, Dwyer for 2 weeks and Redman last week.
Dwyer had 2 very good games then got hurt. Redman steps in and has a career game.
Why bench Redman after a 147 yard game?
Start him, if he stays hot and remains healthy he gets the bulk.
If he starts slow go to Dwyer.
Then stay with who's hot, we don't have a clear #1 right now.

exactly, either one of those two deserve to start. Mendy should be fighting for his starting life when he gets healthy. Hopefully it will light a fire under his A$$. RB by committee is fine and start who is hot. I just hope they don't hand Mendenhall the starting job when he is healthy.
