    good point-

    on top of that, byron the statue would love to have a chance to beat his old team... and his knowledge of their scheme and calls may actually give him an advantage.
    oh god that right there is why its so scary not having ben play. leftwich i like for a back up but he cant get out of the pocket and he is so slow. with the o-line problems you need a qb that can get away from sacks
    yeah, i know- it does pose the potential for an absolute nightmare...

    but- look at it this way... aside from playing cincinnati, what other game would you rather have to start leftwhich in???

    see, grasshopper... glass, it can be half full!
    that is an excellent point. i never thought of it that way. i wish ben could just play on sunday and take a long break until the giants game

    Talk about innovation... why couldn't we use Dixon in a "slash" type role? Surely a defense would get itchy seeing a reverse go to gazelle with a cannon arm. I should be OC.

    i'd love to see dixon get into the game for "situational ball", as coach cliche puts it.

    obviously, the team has some injuries... which will make this impossible... this season..

    but if healthy....

    could you imagine the steelers running some sort of red-zone package...

    maybe the 'hog' with

    dixon
    parker
    mendenhall

    in the backfield???

    anyway- he's certainly the fastest- and most athletic qb on the roster... so that would be helpful for all the times colon is busy chasing the DT that just blew bye him.

    Don't they have some kind of Rooney rule that requires NFL teams to interview an
    Asian person for coaching jobs? Or is that the Norm Chow rule?

    Thanks for the update. It may be a bit selfish, but I would hate to see him get hurt on Sunday night. I'm going to the game in Cincy on 10/19 & I want Big Ben to play. If our star QB is out and Leftwich plays I will be bummed. It would be like having tickets to see the Rolling Stones and right before the show you find out that Eddie Money will be filling in for Mick Jagger.

    I know how you feel. I saw the Steelers in Lambeau in '05 and Batch started.

    At least I got to see Troy return a fumble 70 or 80 some yards for a TD!

    And after that play I spilled a guy's beer twirling my terrible towel...it went all over the back of another guy's leather jacket.

    But when I offered to have it cleaned and/or pay for a replacement if necessary the guy was an asshole so he deserved it anyway!

    Did the guy take you up on your offer?


    I know your pain. Spilling beer on people is never fun (especially when it costs $8.25). I did this at Busch Stadium during a Cards game in St. Louis a few years ago on the nicest person I've ever met. He gave me no grief and was totally cool about it. The spillage was just under 16 oz & all 16 oz. landed on his back. He was a dad who was with his little boy. I felt like a a$$.
