Wow!! Jonathan Dwyer is the real deal. This could now propel the Steelers back into elite status. And a serious contender for another championship. He will help the offense and the defense. This is a flat out Godsend!

I think I'm going with the "Minivan" moniker.

I like Dwyer too, but when Mendy is healthy he is our back and Dwyer will be lucky to get 5 touches. It might lead to Mendy being gone after this season though. His contract is up after this year, I think.

Did I hear that right - Today was the first 100 yard back to back game since when?

FWP 4 years ago I believe. Not a good stat, but hopefully we're changing that pattern starting now.

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.

They'd be foolish to rush Mendy back while Dwyer is having so much success.
Mendy won't be here next year any way

I wonder when the next accusations about him will be thrown out there for being excused from a practice. Didn't seem to hurt him in the slightest.

Jonathan Dwyer will help this team on both sides of the ball. He is a chain moving, clock chewing, punishing back who brings more to this team than Mendenhall does.

There it is. Someone had to say it.

And you said it well, but you weren't the first to do so...lloydroid was bragging Dwyer up a couple months ago.

Well good for him. Big props. It is hard to have been able to see it sooner since the Steelers were often not even dressing Dwyer for games.

Like what Dwyer is doing. Like what the OL is doing. Like the passing attack. Like the balance. Like the OC's design and strategy. Ben is magnificent.

Want to see more tape over time on Dwyer and want to see his durability proven.

We still left some points on the field today.

Everybody on this team is growing into a role...

The way this offense is designed, there will be one superstar: Ben Roethlisberger....

You must be thinking about Bettis at 35 years old. Bettis at 24 or 26 was pretty fast. No way is Dwyer MUCH faster. I doubt he is faster at all. But he is doing a very good job at finding the hole and getting north and south and being productive, so I am not trying to put him down.

Yes, and since Mike Adams joined the line, there sure are a lot of cut back lanes behind him.

true, Mike Adams does a nice job of collapsing the line when he blocks down.
