Redman and Dwyer contributed more this past season, but Mendenhall was coming off the injury.

A few weeks ago before the big media shit storm I was more for keeping these two, but now I tend to agree that we need to move on. Dwyer needs to be better conditioned, especially his heart and lungs. I've never seen a player tap their helmet to come off the field nearly as much as Dwyer.

Again, a lot hinges on the play (read healthy play) of the OL. It is just my opinion that if we head into the season counting on Redman and Dwyer we might be disappointed. I hope to be wrong!
