    BTW Hawaiian, I checked out that other Steeler Forum and your right.....it's nothing but a ghost town. That's what happens when you have a guy with scrambled egg brains running the place with a bunch of bootlickers following him.
    Which one? A lot of the old school, formerly popular Steelers boards are gone or trashed, caused by some serious megalomaniacs.

    you use a very accurate word to describe exactly what happened, although I would rather not use the name of the site it was ruined by one megalomaniac in particular who took himself too seriously and got carried away with his "supposed" power and knowledge. it used to be an okay place to discuss Steelers stuff at, now because of him they are lucky to get one post a day there.

    sometimes in the heat of the discussion or while debating someone with an opposing viewpoint it's easy to forget that we all have something very big in common that unites us and that is we are all Pittsburgh Steelers fans. we should always respect each other for that very reason alone but unfortunately there always seems to be that occasional guy who forgets that fact...

    I don't want to name the site because the mod over there lurks over here and if somethig would be said he would throw his tanrums. I agree with Hawain, megolomaniacs is a good description. Plus just not being wrapped very tight.

    I'm confused on why people think Dwyer is a lock to make this team over Batch. What has Dwyer done to prove his worth over Batch?

    he ran through a huge hole a few times... and he was awesome in college. That is all...

    Batch hasn't even done that much yet though.... we will see in a few who really has the stuff.

    Dwyer has actually done things on the football field.
    He is however no match for Batch when it comes to making Steeler nation fall in love with him on Twitter.

    Steeler fans LOVE the overachiever who comes in with little fanfare but works hard to make it against the odds.
    The Rocky Bliers, the Jerry Os, a Hines Ward. Look at all the Redman love over Mendy
    Batch sounds like that guy if he makes it.
    He "says" all the right things and works hard.

    Dwyer is just the opposite, perceived as a lazy underachiever.

    But realty it that to this point, Dwyer has shown "some" ability to tote the rock at the NFL level.

    Batch has not.

    Dwyer might not be a "lock" but if cuts were tomorrow, I guaranty you he makes the team.
    Not so sure about Batch.

    At this point I would say that Batch and Clay are fighting for the last RB spot and Dwyer is in a pretty good place.

    John Clay has already been waived by the Steelers and former Illinois RB Jason Ford was signed to fill his roster spot.

    I think Redman, Batch, Rainey and Dwyer are the 4 RBs who make the 53-man roster while Mendy remains on the PUP list for the first 6 games of the season.

    Dwyer has proven more than Batch; BB has done nothing but fall into the LOS for no gain. He has done nothing but that. JD also had an explosive college reel. I feel if JD is given the carries, he will prove to be better than RM has. At least he doesn't hesitate at the LOS every freakin play.
