I guess we can say for sure that he's all about getting people to his site, no matter what stupid crap you have to post :wft

Yeah, a guy has one start, completes less than 50% of his passes, and loses the game in OT because of an INT.

Let's run the two-time Super Bowl winning QB out of town! :lol:

I usually enjoy PFT, but this has to be one of his dumbest posts of all time. Even his speculation on Dixon's value is terrible. I'd be shocked to see somebody give up a second round pick for Dixon. He played ok for his first game, but he didn't exactly go out and show that he will be the next Matt Schuab.

thats what i was thinking. if a team would give up a second round pick based on one game the steelers should pull the trigger on that deal in the offseason

I didn't read the article so wont comment on that.
I will say this about DD.... I liked the potential that I saw sunday.
beatiful deep ball. better than bens...
moves really well. very smooth.
We will miss him when he leaves. He should have been the #2 guy all season.
if our defense plays better... he wins that game.
but there is no qb controversy. Ben is a top 5 qb in the league (i'm buying drew brees. damn, he's the only guy in the NFL that i would trade ben for)....

With as many hits as Ben takes, DD might have to replace him one day.

That was a stupid assumption by Florio, even by his standards. When I read the title to his story I thought it was because Dixon's contract might be expiring soon and Steelers might have to pay him or trade him before that because he showed some potential Sunday night. Still a long long way to go though before Dixon can be considered starter material though.

On a side note, I did get a chuckle out of Florio's power rankings comments for Pittsburgh:



12. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5) (Last week: 8 ). Hines Ward wasn't saying that Ben Roethlisberger was a wuss for not playing in Sunday night's game against the Ravens. Hines was saying that only a wuss wouldn't have played in Sunday night's game against the Ravens.

Does that guy actually get paid to write that crap?

Meh, Florio is the modern day version of Bob Smizik (albeit a lesser talented version of Smizik and trust me I am no fan of Smizik).

His spiel is to create controversial opinions regardless of there basis in fact.

In other words, when you see it you vent about it and he gets his fame and fortune.

I read his crap, think about it for about 10 seconds and move on. Nothing to see here but a vaudvillian clown.

IMHO
