Isaac Redman Says Eagles Defense 'Not Really Worried About The Run'

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Steelers running back Isaac Redman isn't shy about expressing his thoughts on Pittsburgh's Week 5 opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles.

And it's certainly bulletin board-worthy.

The apparently malfunctioning run defense of the Eagles is ranked 12th in the NFL, surrendering 91 yards per game - or, 19 more than Redman has rushed for all season.

It's likely Redman is referring to Philadelphia's pass-first edge rushers (playing the wide 9 is based on generating pressure more than stopping the run) but if Eagles coach Andy Reid needed something by which to motivate his run-stoppers, this would definitely be it.

Something's got to give, then. It's either Redman's opportunity for a season-high rushing performance (he would need 28 yards to eclipse that mark), or the Eagles shutting down the Steelers' running game.

For the Steelers' sake, Redman better back up his theory.
