Thread: Dwyer is our best back....

  1. #101
    The way things are going with our RB situation... Dwyer may have to be the best RB we have... He didn't hurt himself last night with 5 yard average. Just hope he has turned the corner... I think him and Redman could take over a close game in the 4th... something we didn't have under BA.

    I'm coming around on Dwyer. He's surprised me.

    We should nickname his Moses. Cause every time he touches the ball, the Red Sea of Defenders part. I swear I've never seen a RB get the kind of blocking that Dwyer does.

    The run by Dwyer last night that impressed me the most was probably his first run. He was first met at the LOS and stiffed that tackler. He was met again and the same and was brought down for a three yard gain by the third tackler. I think that it has been too long watching our RBs get tackled by the first defender to touch them.

    Maybe Dwyer's instincts and ability to read his blockers and time his moves just makes it look like that?
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Probably true. It has to have something to do with him because it doesn't happen for the others.

    Or we call different plays?

    Yeah, he did a nice job finding the hole on his big run to the left last night. He seems to have some natural instincts and ability. The big question is whether he can give consistent effort, stay healthy, and demonstrate consistency.

I can understand a board wishing to compartmentalize subject matter but my point to the mods was that this article was definitely Steelers related (actually had the word "Steelers" in the title) and would invite a lot more discussion on the main Steelers page than in the Draft Room that no one ever visited or posted in.

    the one megalomaniac mod i referred to in an earlier post responded with a "well, that's how it is here and if you don't like it there are other boards and if you decide to leave you will regret it" and that's all i needed to hear to take him up on his invitation. needless to say, i have never regretted leaving that board and coming to this one, as my over 10,000 posts here will attest.

    I don't know how he finds them all, but Hawaiian has managed to post over 10,650 articles here!

    He'd be able to post more if some other site that shall never be named or visited wasn't run by such a douche.

    Ding, ding, ding, ding. He has natural runner's instincts, with good timing. That's why I have been saying he could be our best back for 3 years now. Mendenhall simply stutter steps, delays and spins too much. Dwyer hits the damn hole. Redman is just too slow for an every down back. I like him, but not for 25 carries, more like 7-8.

    If he is ever going to do it, this is his year. He came in 20 lbs lighter than usual, and the stars have aligned with RM being out and Redman being dinged early (and I predict he will be dinged enough most of the year that JD will have the carries he needs to prove himself.)
