1.  Like Sanders & Brown as rookies: the one who practices better, starts.

2.  Dwyer has looked better from 20 to 20.  But, in the red-zone, especially goal-line, I like Redman.  

3.  More Rainey screens.  If he doesn't drop that one... man!!!... he had acres of room.  Keep it coming.

Dwyer runs more violently. Redman runs more patiently but has the same body structure of being low to the ground, which cause's problems. They are a nice compliment to each other. Dwyer does remind me of a mini-BUS. Quick feet but a very nice body of work and runs hard. Redman can break it and is always moving forward but is smarter when reading blocks.

I don't mind them splitting. Having Mendy back is kind of exciting me right now.

Agree with the combo! Dwyer looked beastly and Redman is more patient. Once Ben started throwing the ball all over the field the running game it helped the run and once DeCastro is back and hopefully Adams develops a bit this offense will gel

I am looking forward to having Mendy back after the bye week. And if DeCastro can come back at 100% in week 10 or something, that would add a lot to the run game. I believed before this season, that this may be Ben's best one ever, and I still think he can have it. If that is the case, having Mendy healthy and a potential all-pro at guard, it would really help the cause even more. This was the first game I can remember where all our offensive linemen didn't go out with some injury. That line needs be together in every game. Chemistry on the line IS important. I have never been a big chemistry person when it comes to winning, but the one area that it is important is the o-line.

I liked Dwyers burst but the second effort from Redman was incredible , same for Dwyer. The O Line and running game stepped up when needed in the 4th quarter taking over 10 minutes off the clock and scoring the TD to make it 27-10. If we can finish games like that , yardage the first 3 quarters won't be such a big deal.

I like Dwyer and Redman they both have different run styles and not to mention throw Mendy in there when he returns.
