    Geez, my bad Ford. I didn't think it sounded much like you.


    Now I realize a writer is just trying to stir up a story to get his name noticed.

    At least for most of the intelligent Redman supporters.
    Most want him for short yardage. Who scored the short yardage TD last season in the Super Bowl? Parker cannot score in close and he doesn't pick up 3 and 1. He has his talents for sure. Mendenhall is also talented and may be able to get those short yardage runs in time. Maybe he is the answer we can use. But we have seen what Redman can do in short yardage against first string Ds, both ours and others in the preseason. Its not a full body of work, but I think like Logan, Sepulveda, etc, he can give us a boost in the VERY important short yardage department. If we could keep 54 guys, I bet he would be there.
    Most here that want Redman would change him and Summers. Summers is also clearly not ready. TE Johnson could handle the limited lead blocking and stay on his feet while doing it. The switch most would like:

    Current: Summers leading for RB X (Mendi or Parker) ; Redman on PS
    to
    Future: TE Johnson leading for Redman ; Summers on PS

    Summers would not be a loss at all and Redman could be a huge gain.
    Plus, you get him some PT in the limelight and maybe he is the no.2 back next year if Parker is gone.
    Most see no downside to Summers disappearing, so that makes this move even easier to make.
    who do you replace summers with on special teams? not redman. a starter?

    Re: Redman isn't solution for Steelers' offense

    Anyone want to give a little credit to the coaching staff and acept that maybe they know what they are doing and what they see everyday in practice tells them Redman isn't ready to contribute?

    Just a real wild out of the box thought on my part.

    Just add Redman to the list of UDFA that we, the Steelers messege board, convince ourselves is of NFL calibre, despite every other team passing on them at draft time.

    Yes, the Steelers have had some success with UDFA's in the past, but you can't hit on all of them.

    This board was CLAMOURING for Frank Summers at draft time, how about we let him grow into a player instead of growing bored of him & wanting him replaced?

    Re: Redman isn't solution for Steelers' offense

    If Summers was a RB in college, and a pretty speedy guy for his size and weight, why not give him the rock to follow a lead block from Heath? He caught the ball in college too so this could lead to some screens with him.......

    Although Heath is a solid blocking TE, he should not be used as a FB. His blocking involves sealing the edge next to the tackle. If you want a TE to play FB, then use D.J. Johnson there instead (like McHugh last year). Johnson is 6-2, 260 and built like a brick outhouse. Heath's 256 lbs is spread out over a 6-5 frame, so it would be more difficult for him to get low on a lead block. Let Heath do what he does best (i.e. not fullback).
