    MONDAY MORNING QB

    b. If I'm Mike Tomlin, I'm asking myself: Why can't Dennis Dixon be my No. 2 quarterback? At least until Charlie Batch comes back. That's no fifth-round-looking player. Dixon is poised and throws a zinger of a fastball.


    Any thoughts?

    I agree actually. Ben is pretty durable & with Dixon's arm & mobility, if he were to get into a game I think he can do enough to win games - why not, Ben did it. All they have to do is hold the fort until the 3rd game & Charlie would be back. Besides, doing it this way would allow them to keep another player instead of carrying 4 QBs for no reason. Or they simply release Batch to forgo the problem.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    I don't know how well he knows the offense yet, but from what I've seen of him physically I agree. He moves well, throws hard and has a pretty quick release.

    But we had a better run game and o-line then IMO

    Like I said, Batch could be ready by the 3rd game - so the risk is minimal. But then again, if the team feels Byron is the way they want to go, then they cut Charlie & the issue if off the table.

    Byron Leftwich is a SCRUB. I would rather see Dixon as our number 2.

    Asian - Does your enthusiasm for Dixon also mean you want Batch gone too?

    I saw AS's response as more of a lack of faith for Leftwitch than as a promotion for Dixon...
