Wink Official Johnathon Dwyer Thread

Sure it's only been 2 back to back 100+ games, but this guy can run with power. I heard him referred to as "mini-bus". He's better than mende ever was, and hes younger and better than redman to. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have reestablished a running game. Time to cut our losses and either bench or trade mende cause right now hes breathing the good steelers oxygen.

Dwyer is a backup, Mendy is a starter. Maybe one day Dwyer will step up his game, but currently he can't run more than 15 yards without taking a break, and that 100 yard game cost him an injury even though he barely got touched on the run that took him out. He'll put up another 20 yard week soon, and we can shelf this talk again until another backup has a good game. The guy who rushed 12 times for 28 yards against the jets is going to unseat Mendy? Funny.

Mende seems to confuse the sidelines with the endzones and football with dancing with the stars, he sucks.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with the RBs over the offseason. Mendenhall's contract is up, and both Redman and Dwyer are RFAs. I doubt they'll keep both Redman and Dwyer, and since it seems like the Steelers want to continue talks with Wallace after the season (with the possibility of a franchise tag), I'm not so sure Mendenhall will be back.

Haha...I know there's Mendy hate, but Dwyer has a ways to go. Don't get me wrong, I put him higher on my list than Redman, but he has some work to do. I do agree there's a good chance that Mendy bails next year. If that's the case I think we go to a 50/50 split on Dwyer and Rainey for the season, and see how that pans out. We can maybe ride the passing game if we need to, but eventually I look for us to draft a franchise RB in a higher round.

I thought it was Redman who was supposed to be the starter after he had 2 decent games......?

Mendy is our guy. He's proven, and most of all I still don't think he's ever been given a chance to show us hos potential under the Bird Brain Bruce Arians scheme. I can't wait to see what Haley does with Rashard once he's back for a few weeks.

I'd like to see Dwyer as our second guy cause it seems to me that Redman pulled a Mark Sanchez and regressed since last season .

The Mendenhall/Dwyer combo sounds good to me. Speed and power. Im looking forward to seeing what these two can pull off together for the rest of the season. Especially in the playoffs..... I have a feeling we will be running like a maniac Forrest Gump team.
