Default Dwyer is the Steelers Digest Player of Week

Dwyer is Digest Player of Week

Bob Labriola
Steelers Digest

With 107 yards rushing on 17 carries against the Redskins at Heinz Field, Jonathan Dwyer became the first Steelers back to post consecutive 100-yard games since Willie Parker. The 100-yard game also was Dwyer’s third in a career in which he has played only 13 games over his first three pro seasons. Add in one catch for 8 yards, and Dwyer had 115 yards from scrimmage in the Steelers’ 27-12 victory.

Jonathan Dwyer is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.

Also considered were: Larry Foote, who had six tackles, including two for loss, and the team’s only sack of Robert Griffin III; Will Allen, who had five tackles and three passes defensed; Keenan Lewis, who had two tackles and three passes defensed; Lawrence Timmons, who had two tackles and three hits on the quarterback; Ben Roethlisberger, who completed 24-of-33 for 222 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions; and an offensive line that paved the way for the running backs to average 5.2 yards per carry, for Roethlisberger not to be sacked, and for the Steelers to enjoy an edge in time of possession of better than six minutes.

Dwyer has done as nice job filling in, but he could not start for any other team in the league...get well Mendy!

Dwyer = Bettis V2.0

Not since Jerome have we had a true "power back".
I think Dwyer is the real deal and has provided running game stability which greatly enhances our passing game.

I know that the rule is that you can't lose your job to injury, but every rule has an exception. Even if Mendy and Redman return at 100%, I think we'd be crazy to sit Dwyer.

He could start for the team he beat today. I could think of a few more if I had to

I've never been big on Mendenhall - and still ain't. I just don't believe he's one of the league's better backs.

We'd do just fine.....more than fine....with Dwyer and Redman. Dwyer has def made it more difficult for the other two.

You for sure about that? There are a lot of bad backs out there.

He isn't flashy. We don't need flashy.

Flashy is not Steelers football.

Today was the first day in a while that looked to me like Steelers football.

I like Dwyer. I thin we could have a potential thunder and lightning thing with him and Rainey if we use them right.

Dwyer has quick feet and good vision, but by no means is he a true "power back".

Dwyer got stood up on the goal line from 1 yard out, I'm pretty sure Bettis would not have been stopped on that particular play...

Just need to get him downtown eating some more primanti brothers. Then he will be rumbling through the line.
