yea, the conditioning has a little to do with Dwyer - he is huffing and puffin pretty heavily after a first down gainer. Bettis took pride in his skills and LOVED to humiliate and punish defenses. I'm not saying we need another Bettis - but we need someone with a little more spirit - an RB that will do everything they can to take the pressure off of Ben, and become a voice in the locker room - not just someone to plug in to send right into the mud pit with only a chance of 1-2 yards. Hell, even Willie Parker had that energy and his career with Steelers is looking better and better the longer Mendy has been around.

No one seems hungry on that offense outside of Ben, Miller, Brown, Sanders and the O-linemen - who just can't stay healthy.
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
