Dude, why would you create a second thread about Dwyer. You drooled on him enough in the first thread. Are you his agent?
Hall of Famer
We all know what happened when JD saw Ben eating macaroni salad, and left behind a fork.

Final Ruthless Mock:
1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State
And leave the "forkskin of greatness" behind?

Let's not forget, he began his NFL career showing up super fat at the combines. I mean, come on dude, you had millions on the line and you couldn't push away from pizza and Micky Dees for a few months? That shows he has some real maturity/discipline issues to begin with. But he has serious talent. And this year, he came in 20 lbs lighter saying things like "I know it's my responsibility to get in shape, no one else's." And he has continued to seem like a new man, other than taping his helmet to get out of the game, although it's possible that was because he was injured. I've been high on him since they drafted him, and this year he has shown he might have "seen the light." I have said all along that if he puts in the effort he will prove a BETTER back than Mendenhall, who has been disappointing more than not - always is one broken tackle away from a big play, but he never breaks that last tackle and he obvious F--ks around too much in the backfield after he gets the hand off.

That was a sweet catch by Dwyer, though...it was a great catch at the time when it was needed most...
