No word on Redman, but he looks like the guy By Steve Wyche | Wednesday, December 5, 2007, 05:19 PM The Atlanta Journal-Constitution The Falcons have been off the past two days, so there has been no official word as to whether Chris Redman will be named the starting quarterback. However, all indications are pointing that way. This could be another interesting development in the quarterback stakes because if Redman gets his chance and performs well, he could be a player the Falcons bring back next season - maybe not as the starter, but as a backup who could help any new quarterbacks learn the system. I was going through some game stuff from the St. Louis loss and there was one noticeable change once Redman came into the game: the involvement of the tight ends in the passing game. Since Redman gets rid of the ball quickly, there isn t the need to keep one, if not both tight ends in protection. Of tight end Alge Crumpler s season-high seven receptions against the Rams, four came in the fourth quarter. For a good portion of the game, Crumpler and/or Dwayne Blakley were used in protection because Joey Harrington took a longer time to get rid of the ball, leaving him susceptible to pressure. If Redman is the guy Monday night against the Saints, it will be interesting to see if he can carry over his short-term success into a full game in which the opposing team has had time to game plan for him. Keep in mind, the only tape St. Louis had on Redman was from 2003, in which he played in just two games and threw a total of 13 passes. He completed 16 (of 24) vs. St. Louis. I think Redman is our QB vs. aints ... Harrington has had his chances, and Leftwich can't play with our o-line ... Ok. thanks for that update! It will be interesting to see what Bobby does. He seems to have no QB loyalty, at this point. Good thing!
