Steelers RB Isaac Redman Nominated For Weekly FedEx Ground Player Award

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman had a solid showing Sunday in the win over the New York Giants. Redman rushed for 147 yards on 26 carries and scored the go ahead touchdown late in the game.

For his efforts, Redman has been nominated for the NFL FedEx Ground Player of the Week Award and it is the second week in a row that a Steelers running back has been up for the award.  Last week Jonathan Dwyer was nominated for his 100 plus yard performance against the Washington Redskins, but he ended up losing out to Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson, who rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns.

For Redman to win the award this week he will have to beat out Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, who rushed for 251 yards on 25 carries and scored four times. Also competing with Redman this week is Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who rushed for 182 yards on 17 carries.

As you can see, it would be shocking if Redman pulls off the win, but you can vote for him just the same by clicking here.

    Martin will easily take the award but it is nice to Redman at least nominated for his exceptional efforts.

  • Steve Duncan

    He has zero chance to win over Martin, and honestly, he shouldn’t, but it is still great to be nominated.

  • Kenneth Wilt

    Love what Redman did for us on Sunday, but Martin had a special game. It doesn’t take anything away from Redman’s game, it was a great game, but Martin pretty much did a little bit of everything.

    It isn’t really a contest this week. Record performance, nuff said.

    I love how well both he and dwyer break tackles. I remember ed bouchette mocking fans for their support of keeping redman after his good performance in camp his rookie year. As it turns out he was kind of correct because the Steelers were able to cut him and still end up with him but I think by the end of it all, there will be a few teams who wish they would have made that waiver claim.
