Thoughts on Pittsburgh’s List of “Inactives”

First of all, let me state that I am extremely happy that Isaac Redman is inactive today.  Moreover, I hope that he rides the pine and is inactive for the rest of the season due to the fact that he lied during his medical evaluation against the Bengals earlier this month.

I still cannot figure out why Derek Moye is inactive once again though.  I guess the Steelers are confident carrying four wide receivers on their roster and are willing to save a roster spot for David Paulson.  I’m not sure that I understand what keeping a one-dimensional tight end on the roster over a player with promise like Moye during an already “lost season” accomplishes.  But hey, that’s the coaching staff’s decision, not mine.
