    Default Redman short-yardage RB, Randle-El emergency QB

    NFL from the sidelines

    Tuesday, September 07, 2010

    Some notes from Tomlin Tuesday


    Mike Tomlin said today that Isaac Redman will serve as the Steelers' short-yardage back. That's bad news for those of you who selected Mendenhall in your fantasy drafts.

    On the plus side, Tomlin did say the Steelers will use Mendenhall as the primary third-down back - as they did in the second half of last season - so he could make up for a couple of the scores that Redman may syphon off.

    As expected, Antwaan Randle El will be the team's emergency QB this week against Atlanta and will get some practice snaps at quarterback.

    Randle El is also the backup holder on PATs and field goals.

    Jeff Reed will handle kickoffs this week, but I expect that to be a week-to-week thing with him and Daniel Sepulveda.

    Tomlin would not commit to saying which rookie receiver, Emmanuel Sanders or Antonio Brown - or if both - will be active on game days.

    He was also non-commital with rookie linebackers Jason Worilds, Stephenson Sylvester and Thaddeus Gibson.

    He wants the kids to earn their spots - though I think both rookie wide receivers and two of the three linebackers will be active.

    Why do we need so many WRs if we're going to go conservative and run the ball more? This whole cat and mouse game is really getting boring.

    because 1st of all Battle is a STer and really nothing more!! Weren't going to cut Sanders becasue he played well & was a 3rd rd. pick, Antonio Brown played his way on to the team & is most likely just a returner this season

    Sanders and Brown, could both be dressing before the end of the season, if not earlier

    So ARE is going to be the third Qb ? Boy, did I get laughed at when I claimed this a few days ago. It makes sense because they wouldn't bring in a QB that doesn't know our offense, doesn't probably have anymore experience than Dixon and then ask him to throw and win for us. They would ask him to hand off the ball and every once in a while, have him throw a high percentage pass. Randell can do that and probably better too.

    Having ARE as the third is a better choice than having Dixon at number one.

    I really dont see us running every down like everyone thinks. I see us doing the same as last year, only shorter screen passes. I am hoping we pound the ball, but I don't know with BA in there calling things. I am not sure if you knows how to call a straight run without the option to pass.

    I hope you're right but even that type of pass game involves backs and TEs. I just am not comfortable with DD dropping back to throw the deep sideline or crossing pattern and can't fathom why we need so many WRs. I'll bet that 2 (at least) are inactive for this game.

    I wonder if the deep pass is an option for Dixon ? Does BA tell Dixon to throw to Wallace if he sees he's burning down the field pass his defender ?

    I don't see why not. Wasn't that a fairly deep ball he through for the TD in the last pre-season game? I'd have to look it up.

    we're gonna run Mendenhall until the wheels come off, just like we did with FWP...

    Arians clarifies Mendenhall's situation



    Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians has clarified the rotation that will exist between Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman in short-yardage situations.

    Redman will indeed be the team's short-yardage back, but Mendenhall will still get the bulk of the goal line carries.

    The team will leave Mendenhall in the game down by the end zone because of his skill as a receiver. They want the threat of a pass to at least be there.

    Little note about Maurkice Pouncey. Not only will he be the first rookie position player to start a regular season opening game for the Steelers since Heath Miller in 2005, but he'll also be just the second offensive lineman in team history to do so. Marvel Smith is the only other rookie offensive lineman to start in team history.

    Well... It's a "what have you done lately for me" league... No need to withhold him and not use him if it means possible points reduction... There's more drafts and more RBs that will be coming out, so run the **** outta him IMO... Win the Super Bowl now, not hold him out for later... It's brutal, but it's also competition...

    ... ****, that sounded harsh!...
