    I would bet my mortgage the backup RB is decided on by the coaching staff.

    when I use FO it includes the coaching staff.... I'm sure they communicate over who they prefer.

    Whoever made it, keeping Redman was a bad decision as time and Dwyer's performance proved as the season went on. The fact he was jobless after we cut him says it all.
    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!

    What about the fact that Dwyer was jobless after we cut him? What does that say about him?

    at the risk of derailing the thread - I must admit I'm a bit mystified by the attitudes towards dwyer. maybe someone can crunch stats better than me, but it seems to me that whenever he touches the ball - it results in positive yards. He runs hard, is often stoked when he gets the first down. He doesn't get many touches - but my impression is when he does, he makes plays.

    maybe he's the opposite of the 'practice guy'. you know, the one that looks great on the south side/latrobe and has the coaches ooohing and ahhhing - but then shows nothing on sunday. Maybe dwyer is the crappy practice guy that has the coaching staff pulling their hair out and only using him as a last resort - only to find that on sunday, he finally shows up?

    Dwyer is a significantly better back than Redman, but this is not saying much. Did anyone except the coaches/FO think Redman was the best starting back we could get? He must be the worst back in NFL history, and that was pretty much always apparent.
