The difference is that Dwyer doesn't dance in the backfield, and racks up SERIOUS yardage after contact. Anybody missing that is blind. Even the announcers bring it up every time he plays. Mendy is just good in space; Something this line almost never creates.
Which is why I've always said that Mendy should be catching passes out of the backfield where he'd already be "in space" and has already proven himself to be effective. That whole concept is a staple of the West Coast offense and something I really thought Haley would feature.
