we know...lol RDS beat you to it.
One thing ive come to learn over the years is bob mcginn from JSonline is the authority on all things football...ha
Could be but i remember dwyer with 2 for sure maybe three in a row.. 3rd one could have been mendy.
Dwyer BEAT OUT Mendenhall head to head last year. What more do you want??? Mendenhall with his spin move (for no reason) and timely fumbling???
I called it BEFORE THE SEASON STARTED!! K-Train can tell you that. When (if) Dwyer gets into tip top shape, he is far superior to Mendenhall. I'm not saying that Mendenhall was a horrible running back..but I"m saying that overall, factoring in the fumbling, running soft, bogus spin moves, and missing blocking assignments....Dwyer is the better runningback. And I still stand behind that.
And here's the funny thing....THE FRONT OFFICE PROVED THAT I WAS RIGHT! They did just what I said they would do and let Mendenhall walk! How much more proof do you need Big T???
Just bow down and keep it moving. Gzzz. It's a shame when a man can't admit he was wrong.
Everything I said about Mendy and Wallace came to pass to a T (pardon the pun) so bow down.
The Steeler way...is the only way.
Mendenhall is far superior than any back we currently have, he wasnt healthy last season and bridges were burned between the sides, him leaving was a shame but at the same time it was inevitable. You hated wallace and mendenhall for whatever reason, but the front office and the coaching staff and their parties were at odds the whole last season...wallace wanted to get paid and he did, mendenhall was not 100% and he went somewhere on a cheap 1 year deal to prove his worth....the team was better with both of them though, if we could have given wallace $70 million the team would be in better shape right now but he is just the next one on the long lost of WRs weve let walk to cash in somewhere. "calling" those two leaving wasnt exactly difficult, especially wallace, especially after the AB deal.
Theres a reason no one wants dwyer, hes not good. THeres a reason they didnt try to sign him....hes not very good, theres a reason he signed his tender IMMEDIATELY....HES NOT THAT GOOD. He has his work cut out for him to do something and make a decent career for himself, it seems like hes on his 3rd season of "now or never". I do like that he wants to prove himself, but so far he hasnt.
I personally hope they invest a 2nd or 3rd or 4th rounder in a RB, but signing bradshaw is almost set in stone because of the lack of faith (rightfully) they have in the current group of guys. Theres no question Mendenhall wore out his welcome, but AZ did get a steal. He and Ryan Williams are going be a solid duo.
I do think Dwyer can be a decent zone runner in that hes pretty patient, he just has some of the worst conditioning ive ever seen (which is weird since hes easily faster than redman who has no business on the roster anymore)
Greg Cosell said that someone will take a chance on Patterson just because of his amazing physical skills. Like others have been saying, he doesn't have a clue about running routes and is a project that will take a while to learn how to play in the NFL. Cosell stated that Austin from WVU is the best receiver coming out and can help any team right away.
Your bias against Dwyer has been well documented. But the actions of the organization doesn't back up what you've been saying.
But the actions of the organization does back me up. That's the bottom line. Check mate. Let's just move on. There's nothing more to be said on that.
As far as adding another RB, of course. We are thin now so it only makes sense to add a RB or two. Personally, I like Bell out of Michigan State. He'd be a great addition.
Oh...and There's a reason no one wants ANY RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS. Come on K, your better then that.
I guess no one wants Victor Cruz either.
Nobody is going after anybody's RFA's.
