Seeing reports that Dwyer is likely to be the #1 this game.

What about Batch? He's all of a sudden behind Dwyer?

At what point was Batch ever ahead of Dwyer? Until he learns to run into holes instead of away from them, he's not going to be ahead of anyone on the depth chart. He has work to do on his vision.

We finally got the silly "Redman is better than Mendy" talk put to bed. I really hope we don't have a "Batch should be starting" campaign coming next.

well, Batch has been dressing on game days while Dwyer has not dressed for the last two games although that has a lot to do with the fact that Batch plays special teams while Dwyer doesn't.

however, since Mendy will not play this Sunday and if Redman also can't go then Dwyer will get the start as he's a much better runner than Batch is.

Agreed, except I don't think you can work on your vision. You got it or you ain't.

he also had turf toe after the bye. With batch and Rainey doing ST duty, better they let Dwyer sit. We have enough injuries.

jury's still out on batch imo. even the best rb's don't read it right every time. a part of it could be just the jitters from being put into a big game situation without any prep time with the starting lineup

Oh how I long for a healthy team
