    This part really gets me. It seems that he can't break even the first one. I agree that something is just missing with him, but I hope it gets coached out of him.

    TBH, neither has shown the urgency that you wish you'd see from two young backs given the opportunity to land a job. Dwyer has done some good things, no doubt. But frankly, both have disappointed (what with getting hurt, missing time, etc.) in terms of showing how much they want the job. If I go strictly by this preseason, I'd say Dwyer showed more urgency. But he hasn't exactly shown an Emmitt Smith-like drive. Redman is/was my favorite coming in, and I'd lean still in his favor just because that. But he's let me down this preseason with his apparent laissez-faire attitude (to the starting position).

    I've never equated being injured with having a laissez-faire attitude...
