Toussaint fumble leads confused Steelers fans to berate Redman on Twitter

Fitzgerald Toussaint hasn't been with the Steelers for very long, and some fans with long memories are confusing him with former running back Isaac Redman, who last wore jersey number 33 in 2013.

This really wasn't a problem until Toussaint lost a costly fumble in Sunday's playoff game against the Denver Broncos, which the Steelers ended up losing. Angry fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment, but found the wrong number 33.

Redman, a fan favorite during his time in Pittsburgh, handled the poorly aimed ire with class.

Several of those mistaken fans realized their mistakes and tried to make amends by deleting the critical tweets. Fellow Steelers fans were not as kind as Redman, however.
