I agree with both of you, but if the Steelers don't bring back Mendenhall, I don't see them signing one in free agency or drafting one capable of being an NFL starter. I think they will say "Dwyer showed promise last season" or something like "Dwyer and Redman as a one two punch can get it done"

EDIT: I do think Dwyer could be our starter though, he's a hard runner. He won't be some star RB who is a threat to other defenses like Andrian peterson, Ray Rice, etc. But neither is Mendenhall and Dwyer can find space to run and runs hard, Mendenhall dances around and gets tackled after 1 or 2 yards, sometimes even loses yards.
