Steelers notebook: Haley: Dwyer needs to prove himself as a starter

Offensive coordinator Todd Haley suggests fumbles weren’t the only reason Jonathan Dwyer couldn’t secure the starting running back’s job until now. When he carries a couple of plays in a row, Dwyer sometimes signals for a replacement.

“Jonathan’s got to show he can take the bulk of the carries without needing a break or taking a few plays off on the sideline,” Haley said. “That will kind of be what defines Jonathan as his career moves forward. He’s getting a great opportunity. We’ve been excited about some of the things he’s done, and hopefully he goes in and takes this role seriously and won’t let us take him off the field.”

maybe coach haley just needs to watch the game on the couch next to you so he can gain more perspective.

will you do us all a favor and loan coach haley all your coaching tapes and play by play grades, so haley can see that dwyer is "just fine" because me and coach haley clearly recall the O-line blocking just fine after a 20 yard run and dwyer tapping out and sending in the now jobless baron freaking batch, as soon as we were gaining steam on a drive?
