Running back brings a case where both Steelers front office and the pundits might be both wrong.
Mike Tomlin has gone on record saying the Steelers need to improve the talent they have at running back. With Rashard Mendenhall coming back form injury too soon in 2012, Tomlin opened the door for either Jonathan Dwyer or Isaac Redman to seize the starting role.
- Both men fumbled the opportunity….
- When Colon got hurt, so did the running game.
- The Steelers have two capable runners.
Baron Batch might develop into serviceable running back. He could conceivably the second coming of Mewelde Moore, which would not be a bad thing for a former 7th round pick. Unfortunately at this point he's more notable for his amazing human interest story and his blocking abilities.
So the Steelers do need to add talent and depth at running back, but perhaps not as early or as urgently as most argue.
