Redman says Mendenhall will start Sunday night

AP

For the first time this year, the Steelers won’t have their starting quarterback.  For the third time, they’ll have their starting running back.

Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Steelers running back Isaac Redman said it “looks like” Rashard Mendenhall will start at tailback.

Mendenhall missed the first three games of the season as he continued to recover from a torn ACL.  He has missed the last four with an Achilles injury.

They’ll need a healthy and potent running game to counter the absence of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, especially since the Ravens defense ain’t what she used to be.

  1. By the time Rainie gets in the game, 34, 33, and 27 will have pounded them to mince meat.

    Ground and pound with a little lightning bolt for an occasional change up.

    Ravens D already has their hands on their knees.

  2. Certainly hope this isn’t true. Give me Dwyer over Mendenhall and his lame, hit the hole and do a lame spin move even when it’s not neededed, any day.

  3. Without Ben the Steelers offense ain’t what she used to be.

    Byron moves like a Glacier and has a wind-up to match.

  4. Mendenhall is still having nightmares.of Haloti Ngata steamrolling him. Better hope he holds onto the ball this time around

  5. Tomlin, what the hell have you been watching the last few games?! And for the last few years in the NFL for that matter. Go with the hot hand at RB.

  6. Having read the threads the past two days I have noticed how frequent the baltimoron fans are posting about a team that is old, slow, and done. Sounds to me like either they are very unsure of their team or nervously overconfident. Considering its been what eleven years since you last appeared in a SB and with consistent failure in January I suggest a third reason.. Panic is setting in knowing deep in their heart of hearts they realize their best chance is now that Ben is out. LOL….pathetic.

    So… you’re ignoring every Steelers fan saying the EXACT SAME THING about Baltimore’s team? Are they giving away free blinders with those terrible towels these days?

  8. dropped Mendenhall weeks ago in my fantasy lineup. Still don’t regret it. I should mention my 1 and 2 is Foster, Spiller. That’s right. C.J. Spiller will arrive tonight for the whole world to see. And it will be special folks.

  9. Mendenhall will never be ‘the man’ in Pittsburgh (or anywhere). Time to give up on that experiment and move forward with Dwyer and/or Redman, both of whom have showed they’re better runners period.
