    Dwyer is our best back....

    ....and that is WITH Mendenhall active.

    If Dwyer gets the touches, he will border pro bowl status.

    He is simply better than any back on the roster, period.

    He'll certainly have a chance to prove that, but he has A LOT to prove...

    Hopefully his shoulder will be okay...as it is often said, "You can't make the club in the tub."

    if Dwyer gets the touches he will gain 8000 yards this season which should be good enough to earn pro bowl status.

    however, I don't think he will beat out Redman for the starting RB job...

    You are starting to see the light!

    But, I'll have to revise my estimate...it has been about 5 years since an RB carried the ball 400 times...so, I don't think that 8,000 is quite within reach...

    The thing I like about Dwyer is that he hits the "Go" switch really quickly when he sees an opening. The problem with Mendenhall is not physical ability but that he has a momentary hesitation before he hits an opening. I don't know if Dwyer is the best back because he hasn't carried in enough situations to show that, but I am very comfortable with him as part of the backfield on opening day.

    I give him credit for seemingly showing up in shape this year.

    Maybe Dwyer should start... seems like every time his number is called the OL executes to perfection.

    Anyone notice Dwyer waving his hand after that big run? It looked like the coached wanted to see Batch in the red zone but I wonder if they would have let Dwyer finish the drive off of he didn't put his hand up.

    I'm pretty sure Dwyer put his hand up to let the coaches know he was hurt, he mildly sprained his shoulder on that play...

    I didn't know he was injured on that play.
