    He reminds me of Emmit Smith... not fast, not elusive but able to follow blocks and get to the second level.

    It's like you are watching a different RB then everyone else.

    What part of his running style screams injury? You make it sound like Redman runs straight up and down and never makes a guy miss... he is pretty elusive inside the tackles.

    Of course you know I'm don't but whatever. What I mean is that his style is going to expose him to alot more physical abuse week in and week out than he has experienced as a pro. That has effects.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I'll be curious to see what a possible "pass-first" offense does with a guy like Redman. Especially since we have some good backs in the stable. If YM are all on the field along with Heath and Rainey or Batch it seems that a battering ram like him could take advantage of the defensive set that would almost have to be called.

    Anyone else notice the no-huddle is Ben's answer to just about every question regarding the direction of the offense?

    As it should be. No huddle and 3 wide base.

    Do that and they win the AFC.

    Obsess with trying to play 1970's football and they won't win the division.

    I'm all for airing it out considering our options. However I also expect a stout ground attack if our line comes together like it should. I can't wait for the damn season to start!

    You can run from 3 wide.

    What needs to stop is:

    1st and 10: 2 TE sets, 2 yard run.

    2nd and 8: Out goes the #2 TE, in comes #3 WR, pass.

    Just leave the 3 wide out there, stop over thinking and tipping plays.

    Hopefully, Haley can recognize this where Arians did not...

    3 wide should be our base offense, but the no huddle should be used situationally, not as a base offense (that went out with Jack Pardee's Houston Oilers).
