I know, I liked it when we drafted him, thought he'd be a great replacement for Bettis, but just like Holmes, I soured on him after a while

Dwyer has not amounted to anything yet...Mendy has over 3000 yards rushing....I'm not a big Mendy fan, but c'mon.

Dwyer is a big back who gets arm tackled and can't be trusted on short yardage. I really believe he is better off the bench.

Frankly, if someone told me not to dress for a game I don't think I'd show up either.

I mean, what is he supposed to do, stand there all "Rah, rah" after he was told not to bother to put his uniform on?

idk I think Dwyer is starting to show he's more than capable of being the lead back, esp because he's getting more playing time now. And Dwyer also did something Mendy never did, have back to back 100 yd games. I think with more time Dwyer will develop into a good lead back.

Dwyer has 122 carries for 510 yards, which on face value seems very, very respectable. I mean, 4.2 YPC is beating out guys like Arian Foster, so obviously he's having a very good year.

Digging a little deeper, if you take away the two 100 yard games because at this point, they seem like complete anomalies, his numbers drastically change.

Subtracting those games in which he flashed brilliance and hasn't done anything since, his numbers are ...

88 carries for 281 yards for 3.1 YPC.


3.1 YPC isn't going to cut it in the NFL. Again, this is just taking away those two games in which he played very well but hadn't done anything before or after those games even worth mentioning. He's a mediocre, one dimensional back that at this point needs to be given his walking papers after the season. We need a legitimate running back for this offense to flourish once again but sadly, we don't have one of those on the roster right now.
