    Dwyer looks like his usual out of shape self

    Batch coming off a torn ACL

    Rainey won't offer much in the running game

    Yea I would agree there is many questions surrounding the Steelers current RB's.........

    I will say Redman is not as dynamic as Mendy but he is more than serviceable especially if our line performs well this year.Dwyer wasn't out of shape last year and has vowed to change his ways so i'm sure he will also fill in nicely.With a decent O-Line any back can surpass 1,000 yrds there are many examples so i'm not concerned . We will make the playoffs in 2012 .Personally i think the Ravens are in worse shape than us at this point but it's early

    average age by squad

    Defensive backs----26 yrs

    Offensive line-------24 yrs

    Running backs------24 yrs

    Specials p\k--------27 yrs

    Quarterbacks-------30 yrs

    Wide recievers------24yrs

    Defensive line--------25 yrs

    Linebackers----------25 yrs

    Tight ends------------24 yrs

    this is the average age of each individual unit on the 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers

    I guess you missed the photos of Dwyer looking quite round coming into OTA's......He isn't known for coming into the best of shape.....Sure he is talented but really how can anybody feel confident in Dwyer being an NFL RB until he proves it on the field.....Some Steelers fans think he is the second coming of Bettis....lol

    I like Redman and I'm anxious to see what he does as the starting RB but still can he hold up to the pounding every week as the starting RB........

    He should'nt be in the same sentence as Bettis but he's better than any back we could have drafted in rd's 5 to 7
