The back is irrelevant.
Change the basics of the offense first based on formation, then talk.
well you can
A) base your offense around 1 player on the field
B) Base your offense around 11 players on the field
I've been a redman supporter, but this decision stinks if true.
I saw enough last week.
I'm puzzled by this as well. Tomlin was so quick to bench guys last year, now he has changed. I don't think Redman should be benched a game for fumbling, but I would give Jones a chance. In regards to last year, when I'm in the heat of the game, I'm all for benching them lol!, but a day later some reasoning kicks in and they should maybe be demoted until the trust is regained if the fumbling is a recurring problem. The knee jerk reaction by tomlin last year seems to be tempered this year. I'm fine with that, as the 1st fumble could have gone either way....bens fault or redmans fault imo. We saw this last night when RGIII tossed a ball a little off target and caused a fumble. RGIII was in his first real action as was Redman. You don't want the players playing on eggshells but you also want them to be responsible for their mistakes.
I don't have a problem with him starting. How long he plays is another matter altogether.
