Wonder what will happen if Dennis Dixon goes 4-0 to start the season?

Will Tomlin stick with him?

I get this impression that Pittsburgh hates Ben now. I've never had a sour taste like this leading up to the draft.

This is supposed to be the most exciting time of the year. But it sucks :(

It does suck and if Dixon goes 4-0 I think he's rewarded for going 4-0. Tough situation tho because you certainly don't want to keep the franchise waiting in the wings but you also don't want to hinder development or confidence with Dixon. Tough, tough situation and I agree about the sour taste. I'm always pumped for the draft and this sours it all.

What if I could sh1t bricks of gold?

I'm sorry, I just don't see it happening. In the Ravens game, Dixon was very protected. Late in the game, when he had to pass, the Ravens played a very simple cover 2 defense, and he didn't know what to do with it. Dixon may develop someday, and he could be useful as a backup or in special packages, but I'd be shocked if he could come in and be a successful starter this season.

Yeah, but how many thought Ben could do it in 2004? There is always a chance.

Assuming the Rooneys have already made the decision to not trade Ben, I don't think
he'll be standing on the sideline after a 4-0 start by Dixon/Leftwich.

Won't happen. We will be lucky to be 2-2.

All I know is we need to institute the wildcat this season with Dixon at the helm.

Steelers won't go 4-0 with Dixon.

It's hard enough for them to go 4-0 with Ben. They just aren't that good without his improvisational skills folks!! :HeadBanger :HeadBanger

Denis Dixon would never hold up to the punishment of running a wild cat O.

If anything you'd run a spread option O with him as Oregon did - and the Steelers with Kordell.

Dixon has to beat out Leftwich first, in my opinion Lefty is the starter on Opening Day.

If Dixon goes 4-0, then it will increase Dixon's trade value after the season. :mrgreen:

First off, no matter what Dixon does, Ben will be the starter in the 5th game, assuming he gets the 6 reduced to 4. Secondly, Dixon going 4-0 is a problem you WANT to have. Thirdly, as Ruthless pointed out, his trade value goes up immensely at the end of the season.

Rumor has it that Al Davis is enamored of speed. ;) Maybe we can get Darth Al to give us a 2nd and another productive player for Dixon. That would totally kick @$$.

If Dixon goes 4-0 then we have a great shot at making the playoffs.
Do you have any other questions?
