    Redman vs. Richardson

    They got Richardson, we got Isaac Redman.

    They have a similar running style... Am I crazy to think we can have comparable on-field production this year from our undrafted free agent, as they get from the third overall pick?

    Yes, you are crazy. Redman is solid. Richardson is a BEAST.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    So I guess you don't think Redman is capable of 1,000+ yards in a season? Interesting.

    I think he is... I think he is capable of 1,200... 1,400 even. Granted, that's pretty optimistic, but if he's able to just hit 1,000--I think that will compare to Richardson in his rookie season.

    A thousand yard rushing season is reasonably solid production. That's what Redman is capable of.

    Beastly backs get 1500+ yards and over 2000 yards when you add in their receiving yardage, plus double digit TD's. That's what Richardson is capable of (if Cleveland has reasonable enough pieces around him, which at this point, is questionable).

    Crazy talk...Richardson is the best back I have seen since Peterson. He is a game changer. Redman is not.

    Richardson will have one of the BEST LT to run behind and a pretty darn good center too. Couple first rounders.

    Is mentioning Redman and Richardson in the same sentence even serious??? Please be realistic. Richardson is a future star and Redman never will be.

    I don't understand what is so crazy. Are people expecting Richardson to go off for 1,500 yards next year?

    I asked if Redman might have a comparable year to Richardson this year. Haley is planning on bringing in a more run-oriented scheme. Is it that far off to think Redman gains 1,000+ yards? If he does, IMO, that would compare with a good rookie year from Richardson.

    Now that we've got Decastro, the sky's the limit for all the Steelers' RBs.

    Better linemen lead to Heath being used more in the passing game.

    That leads to less men in the box to block.

    That makes the linemen more effective.

    And in turn helps the running game.

    Which in turn will give Ben extra seconds to make plays downfield to Wallace, Brown, and Sanders.

    Who cares about Richardson, we friggin got Decastro.

    God is a Steelers fan, that's for sure.
