    I would rather have Dwyer as the starter than Redman. Redman is good, powerful and all that but I like the vision and quickness of Dywer.

    Honestly, I don't think it matters who starts...

    If we are going to be using a lot of 11 personnel (3 WR sets) like we should, then I prefer someone in the backfield who will be able to protect Ben by blocking any free blitzers. I'm not convinced that Jon Dwyer is that guy.

    I agree. It depends who is having success and you keep giving THAT GUY the ball!

    I acknowledged last year that Redman was better than I thought he would be and is serviceable back up RB. What I continue to reject to this day is the notion that he is a #1 RB. Let's not forget that IF he gets the start on Sunday it is only because Mendenhall is hurt.

    I think Redman is capable of being a starter in this league and for our team. I think he has a better shot at it than Dwyer at this point but, I just like the idea that Dwyer reminds me of having the kind of tools that can get us some big yardage runs. Having said all that I have this question. Is it better to have a battering ram type with Redman that is probably going to move the defense back more often than Dwyer or is it better to have Dwyer that can get the defense wiff every so often ?
    feltdizz probably is most correct with it doesn't matter at this point. And I'm guessing he means they both bring something to the table.

    yep... this isn't high school in the 80's where the started played all game, every game...

    it's not like Redman starting means Dwyer won't see the field or vice versa.

    SMH... you just did it again!

    Mendenhall's injured? We had no idea... Ovie, it's obvious you don't want Redman to be successful because you just want to say you are right and you have invested your opinions and prognostications excessively in another player.

    Actually I would be elated if he ran for 2000 yards and scored 25 TDs because it would mean we were winning a lot of games. I could really care less about being right if we win. I just think that at best Redman gets 800-900 yards and about 6 or 7 TDs.
