Steeler Notes: WR battle, Redman looks good

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

• The Steelers do have a slight dilemma at wide receiver. They have six of them who look like keepers and if they keep all six, return specialist Stefan Logan must go.

The six are Hines Ward, Mike Wallace, Antwaan Randle El, Arnaz Battle, Antonio Brown and fellow rookie Emmanuel Sanders.

• Isaac Redman, the fans' choice a year ago, will be the coaches' choice this season. Redman looked like the best running back on the field Saturday night and showed he can be more than "Red Zone," the nickname he picked up for his goal-line skills a year ago.

Redman did perform those skills well again Saturday. He scored from the 1, burrowing off left guard. And he picked up three first downs in short-yardage carries -- 4 yards on third-and-2, 5 yards on third-and-1, and 3 yards on second-and-2.

Fantasy Impact: 

Redman's success could be bad news for Mendenhall owners who were hoping he'd emerge as at least the goal line back to pad his TD stats. Keep an eye on this battle.
