Agreed. I can't be certain but I don't recall Redman losing yardage on any more than 2 carries the entire game. They were routinely blowing the Giants off the ball.
I hated that call. It's 4th and goal (a foot away) and you've been running the ball successfully all day and converting 4th downs all season. You either go for it by running Redman or you play action bootleg and toss to the TE in the flat or Ben walks in. In this case, you take your worst athlete on the field, who's 10 yards behind the goal line. Today, the Steelers were good enough to make up for the refs and their own mistakes.
Foolish decision. I'd have reluctantly been OK with them kicking the FG. I'd have preferred Redman up the gut or a QB sneak. That fake FG was simply awful. Here's another reason why -- what if your kicker gets hurt there? He's missed one FG all year. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
