Yeah it's not even an argument. Everybody agrees Dwyer should be number 1.

Yea, except he isn't doing that either. Remember when we needed a single 1st down to put the game away against KC? Dwyer got put flat on his ass a yard short on 3rd down by a corenerback. That isn't clutch running, sorry. And where was he in the Ravens game?

And a 50/50 split on carries excuses him only getting 28 yards on the shitty Jets? Seriously? In his last 2 years as a starter Mendenhall has never had more than a 2 game streak as a starter without scoring a TD, and all that was with Bruce Arians running the circus. Dwyer has been here for years and has yet to sniff an endzone, and that's with having an actual fullback paving roads for him in his starts..

You can't blame.Dwyer for the Raven game. When Tomlin DID call his number he produced. 4.6yac against Baltimore isn't nuthin to sneeze at, just that he only.carried it like 15 times.

Saying "Dwyer has been here for years" really doesn't mean much, he was never given a legitimate chance to do anything until this season. Obviously he wasn't going to do anything his rookie year, and last year Mendy wasn't hurt all year.

No he didn't do anything against KC. But who did? Everyone played like shit that game. EVERYONE. It's not like anyone came out and showed they should get the job over him. Against Baltimore, he still came up with a few good third down conversions if I'm not mistaken. It wasn't his best game but again it wasn't anyone else's either and Dwyer still looked better than anyone else when he was in. He still got nearly twice as many yards as Mendenhall with only one more carry. He had just as many receptions for more yards as well.

Nobody's trying to say Dwyer is a Pro Bowler or anything, or at least, I'm not. I used to be a huge Mendy supporter. I will still admit Mendy is more equipped to be a feature back. He has all the physical traits, the speed, the power, the shiftiness, the endurance. But he just doesn't get it done. I don't care what he's done in the past, he's had good seasons here. But if you've watched him this year, there's just no way you can make excuses for him. IDK if maybe the lingering injuries are bothering him or what, but he just get's stuffed or misses the hole EVERY time he gets the ball.

To me, Mendy is totally out of the equation as the #1 at this point, and Dwyer has shown he's better than Redman. That's all there is to it.
