Thread: The rotating of the RB's is not the answer!

  1. #11
    With Ben out, the defenses we face will load up to stop the run...I'm not real optimistic about our success running the ball under that scenario, whether we have one back getting the bulk of the carries or do the committee thing...the heart and soul of this offense, the one that makes it go, is not Dwyer or Redman or Mendenhall, it's #7.

    That is why "gloom and doom" is so prevalent right now.
    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 would trust that the coaching staff knows a lot more than you about whether one guy deserves "the bulk of the carries" in a game. It seems pretty obvious that none of the RBs has stepped up to make that decision easy. Injuries, inconsistencies, missed reads, frequent spells doesn't instill a lot of confidence in a coach about a player.

    Dwyer looks the more 'complete' RB. Redman looks best as the relief hitter. Chadman would probably give Redman a third of the carries Dwyer gets, or less, depending on the flow of the game.

    Chadman think's it's more important to get Batch & Rainey involved though- change of pace RB's instead of change of cleats RB's- Dwyer & Redman are just a rotation of the same RB.

    This is THE point I've been making with these two ignoramuses. I suppose the OP is talking about the KC game, where both seemed to platoon carries. Both have had golden opportunities to take the job for their own... and both have pushed away from it. It's like they're scared of success...

    Dwyer had two impressive 100-yard efforts in a row. He could've went for a 3rd in the Giants game, if he simply 'naded up and played. But he sat out that game--because he had a charlie horse! What happened? Redman took over, and got the 147 yards that could've certainly been Dwyer's. Three 100-yard games in a row, it would've been!

    So what is the coaching staff supposed to do, supposed to think? They CAN'T hang their hat on either of these two bozos.
