    Can we stop the RB Debate?

    Still think it's Dwyer over Redman?

    I. Redman 12 / 25 yds
    J. Dwyer 12 / 28 yds.

    These running backs are interchangeable and I don't see one taking it away from the other based on two games played.

    What's going to happen when our Marquis pony is healthy? Seems like we can win any game at all with the 3 we got now!


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    The beauty about the whole thing is that even with a patchwork OL we are still getting it done. This backfield by committee is the flexibility we need to keep wearing teams down. I love that stat in the 4th... 10+ min. drive. Granted we had help with some mental mistakes by gang green but this D we faced today aint no slouch.

    They were minus Revis, their best player. He would have made a difference. Who knows if we would have been as successful with him taking away our best WR and locking down half the field. They could have committed another safety to the rush if they had Revis out there.

    And if we had James Harrison and Troy Polamalu at full health, we might have held the Jets to minus 10 points.

    How bad has our running game become if a 2.4 YPC is 'getting it done'??

    There are signs of life, but all the RB's look decidedly uninspiring to Chadman. Mendenhall is clearly the #1 RB on the roster. Either Dwyer or Redman could serve as the short yardage guy, and Batch doesn't look anything special. Rainey is the wildcard, but more in a 3rd down role.

    Along with a Safety or 2 in the next draft, a RB should be high on the list- a 1 cut, forward momentum type that can take whatever advantage is possible behind lacklustre run blocking.

    I agree we had a poor average. Not inspiring. What i did like though, was we ran when we had to ... fourth quarter, final drive that sucked the life out of them.

    Average, shmaverage...they were persistent in running the ball and wore down the Jest so that, by the 4th quarter, they were breaking tackles and eating clock to the tune of a 10+ minute drive...

    Dwyer does his Earl Campbell impression by lowering his helmet and drilling a Jest DB in the chest...a few plays later, Redman shrugs off tacklers at the goal line and goes in standing up...
