    Guessw they got a blocking dummy (Wilson) by releasing a tackling dummy (Redman).

    Redman getting cut was long overdue.
    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!

    That is a dumb move. With all these injuries to other teams' RB's, he'll be scarfed up in no time..Could've tried a trade first. And Kion? Unreal.

    True. The fourth string RB on the 31st ranked running team is usually taken first in most fantasy pools too!

    Don't know if they tried trading him, but I can't see too many bites for a guy like him. The return probably wouldn't be worth the quarter it costs to make the call.

    Yeah, everyone saw what he did...not much. Too bad too because I can remember a few years ago when he fought so hard to get that TD against the Ravens. Made a big impression on me and I wanted him to succeed.

    I guess Kion Wilson will return to being a so-called special teams ace.

    As for Redman, I understand it. He was making over $1 million to wear Duce Staley's old sweat suit. Even if Wilson is inactive, he will be cheaper. It wouldn't surprise me to see a team like the Bucs or Giants grab Redman, but it also wouldn't surprise me if he is still out there as a free agent in a few weeks if the Steelers need him. He was a nice role player who was exposed as a starter, nothing more, nothing less.

    Redman had his opportunity and Bellcow made it clear he is expendable. Dwyer dodged the long term unemployment bullet...

    This.
    Redman has no one to blame but himself. season, after his late 2011 season, 2 100-yard games, he had the opportunity on a silver platter. He blew it. This season, injury to Bell and releasing Dwyer, he was given a RARE second opportunity to take the job. He blew it.

    He has no one to blame. Pack your bags for Arizona, Redman.

    Lest we forget, Dwyer was let go just a few weeks ago when the FO decided to keep Redman.

    I would be confused as a player trying to figure out what the lesson there is. Of course it might be something as simple as maybe Dwyer has had a stellar few weeks of practice and Ike not so much.


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