QB Chris Redman - Free Agent
|6-3, 223||Born: 7-7-1977||College: Louisville||Drafted: Round 3, pick|
2011 Week 15 vs JAX (5 / 6 / 56 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / -2 / 0 rush)
Williams had the start for Tampa but did not see a pass thrown his way. The only time his name was called was for an offensive pass interference penalty that was declined.
2011 Week 16 vs NO (6 / 9 / 61 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Redman entered the game in mop up duty allowing Matt Ryan to enter next week and the post season as healthy as possible. Redman did a good job moving the team down the field in garbage time showing great comfort in the system and fully content to hit high percentage passes.
2011 Week 17 vs TB (7 / 12 / 71 / 0 / 1 pass, 3 / -4 / 0 rush)
It was such a laugher they turned to Redman to lead the team int he 2nd half. He was OK, good for him to get some reps, but nothing he does makes you think for even a second that he could challenge Matt Ryan ever. He also threw an interception return for a touchdown to cut the lead down to 42-14 in the 3rd quarter but luckily the Bucs were not in the mood to make a roaring comeback.
2010 Week 17 vs CAR (4 / 6 / 20 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Redman took over for Ryan at beginning of the final quarter, with the game well in hand. He made a nice throw to White for first down, and a few others that were not so great. His accuracy was not bad, but most of his throws were into coverage. Mainly he was asked to hand off the ball.
2009 Week 12 vs TB (23 / 41 / 243 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / 4 / 0 rush)
Redman came in cold, but you wouldn't have known it by the way he executed in the offense. The first few sacks he took were his own fault, but soon after the Falcons battered offensive line broke down numerous times, and Redman often didn't even have time to make more than one read before he was sacked. He had very good timing with his receivers considering the lack of reps he has had this year, and he also seemed to go calmly through his progression, see the field with clarity, and deliver the ball without delay when he saw an open target. Redman was helped by a holding call away from the play to get a few extra shots to score on the game-winning drive, but you can't take anything away from him, because he fired the ball into Roddy White conifdently on fourth down to get the crucial win for the Falcons.
2009 Week 13 vs PHI (23 / 44 / 235 / 1 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Chris Redman struggled to complete passes against the Eagles, often targeting just Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. He later padded his stats once the game was way out of hand, including a touchdown pass to Roddy White on the final play of the game. Redman was under constant pressure from the Eagles, who were in his face often and also intercepted him twice with a few other passes bouncing off of Philadelphia's hands.
2009 Week 14 vs NO (23 / 34 / 303 / 1 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Redman was sharp in week 14 for the Falcons, and had them in the game until the final drive concluded. However he was unable to make the crucial plays on the game's final 2 drives, throwing an INT and failing to convert a short 4th down conversion. It was the 2nd strong start for Redman in his 3 games filling in for franchise QB Matt Ryan. Redman played quite well in 2007 for the Falcons and is really playing at about the same level that he did that season. He made good reads, and usually had the time to find the open receiver. Redman ran a conservative offense, opting often for check down options and screens. However he did manage to torch the Saints defense on a double corner blitz, finding Michael Jenkins deep down the middle for a long TD throw. Redman will continue to be a solid fill-in for Matt Ryan; he is a capable backup QB at this point in his career.
2007 Week 10 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Redman came into the game for one play when Harrington got hurt. Redman completed the pass for nine yards.
2007 Week 13 vs STL (16 / 24 / 172 / 2 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Redman replaced Harrington to begin the fourth quarter and really ignited his team. He threw 24 times in one quarter (versus Harrington's 34 attempts through three quarters), nine of which were intended for Roddy White; two were for touchdowns, and one was a costly interception with under two minutes to play that foiled the comeback.
2007 Week 14 vs NO (23 / 40 / 298 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Redman started for the first time this year. He showed ability to throw the ball accurately, but could not consistently move the chains. It seemed like he threw into coverage often on the night, but he did manage to throw for 298 yards and two touchdowns. His interception came on a well thrown ball to Michael Jenkins that went through his hands and right to Roman Harper who returned it for a touchdown.
2007 Week 15 vs TB (4 / 15 / 34 / 0 / 2 pass, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Chris Redman had a nightmare of a game in the little time he was on the field. For the game, he finished four of 15 for just 34 yards, zero scores and two interceptions. Redman threw a pick on the first drive that was returned for a touchdown, and that score, along with the Tampa Bay kickoff return for a touchdown, helped put Atlanta in a position where they were forced to make plays through the air, and they just couldn't come through. As a result, Tampa Bay used their running game to control the clock and keep the Falcons off the field, a big reason why Redman had only 15 attempts. Redman also lost a fumble.
2007 Week 16 vs ARI (28 / 42 / 315 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Chris Redman played an excellent game rallying the Falcon offense to score on three of its last four possessions. He was 28 for 42 for 315 yards and two touchdowns, including a pretty 74 yard touchdown pass to Laurent Robinson. He looked poised at times in the pocket and nearly pulled out this game. He did throw one crucial interception in the red zone, ending an early Falcon drive in the first quarter. Redman hit eight different receivers on the day.
2007 Week 17 vs SEA (17 / 27 / 251 / 4 / 0 pass, 5 / 10 / 0 rush)
Redman had an excellent day. Statistically, he was stellar, with four TDs and no interceptions. He also showed some good leadership and rallied the team on a few occasions, scrambling for first downs and in general, fighting for that extra yard or two.
