Re: Game Notes From Against the Ravens
Why are you labeling his fans "supporters"? You act like Dwyer fans have formed a cult, haha. Not sure what you have against the dude, he's just another guy with potential givin an opportunity.
NOBODY within this Steelers running core is the #1 guy just yet. It's no secret that Dwyer is the most consistent out of the bunch and we're willing to give him a shot for the role since he welcomes contact and had the ability to break for big runs, alas the go a-head touchdown against the vaunted Baltimore Ravens defense yesterday. Didn't see anyone else stepping up within our backs and the deactivation of Mendenhall with Dwyer getting the start tells you our coaching staff feels the same.
Got to remember now that EVERY SINGLE ONE of our running backs have been hurt this season, including Dwyer so it's going to take time for him to get going and get use to the workload. Besides, we need to COMMIT to somebody and Dwyer is the guy. Redman got it, Mendenhall got it, now it's Dwyer's turn.
