    I'm looking foward to seeing this guy get plenty of preseason action. Watching Batch got old because we knew what he brought to the table & Brian Saint Pierre was never very impressive.

    In the past, you didn't feel like you were getting your money's worth out of paying for pre-season tickets, simply because the starters would only play for so long. This year, however, I won't be as interested in the first half of pre-season games with Ben throwing to Hines and handing off to Willie as I will be in watching the second half of pre-season games with Dixon throwing to Sweed and handing off to Mendenhall.

    These pre-season games might be the most exciting because of all our prospects. We got alot of talent this past draft!!!! I heard Tony Hill today on ESPN 1250 while at work. The guy has alot of personality & if he is healthy he could be a gem.

    Dixon is a winner in every sense of the word. He is our most underrated pick.
    I look foward to seeing this guy develop.
    I will ask this again. How is this guy the steal of the draft?

    I would be excited if we didn't have Ben - that Dixon could be the QB of the future.

    But the most he can be is a backup QB -- and that is a good thing but not enough for me to go apesheet over.

    What kind of realistic trade value could we get in a couple of years? I mean, the only way we could get something is if he is playing and excelling -- and that means both Ben and Batch are out.

    Don't get me wrong, I kind of like the pick -- I'm just not feeling the excuberance that you all are.

    He could be our Matt Schaub.
    But to be our Schaub, wouldn't he have to get semi-significant playing time?

    And that would mean Ben/Batch would both be out/unavailable.

    I just don't see how that happens.

    Unless Dan Snyder gets a woody for him and then anything is possible.
    You say that as if it could never happen...
