Also another tid bit from this that article

"During Dwyer’s early college career he was a quick power back, but he is about 15-20 pounds heavier now. If the Steelers want a runner that can get to the edge they may have their guy in Dwyer. It will just require Dwyer to drop some weight and get back to sprinting. Dwyer was a All-State sprinter in high school he ran a 10.81 in the 100 meter dash, the second best time in the state of Georgia."
I can agree with this somewhat but it kills me to watch him dance in the backfield looking for and opening. I would love to see his stats on loss yardage it would probably be mind boggling. I just think we need a more productive back then what we got. I was probably one of the biggest Mendy fans they were when we drafted him but I don't feel that way anymore.
