He's almost assuredly gone next year, and any mistake by a back results in being benched. he has no reason to give a shit at this point.

IMO, Dwyer needs to play hard now to be the #2 guy next year. 5 starts with zero TD's isn't going to get it done, though, and neither is falling over from exhaustion every 3rd snap. We draft a new #1 in the first few rounds, and Dwyer and Redman fight it out for #2, loser leaves town style. Rainey fills in at #3, unless Batch somehow gets his shit together.
If Julian Edelman or whatever his name is, and Sproles can play, so can Rainey. I think he just needs to be utilized in different ways. I say keep all 3 and get your Rb in the 3rd
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?
