True. But at least Dixon could hand off to Mendy and not break his hand.

He threw a great pass to a Ravens DE that cost us a playoff spot though..


Great trade by FO by getting Leftwich back in here.. We at least will have a competent QB since Dictator Goodell will suspend Big Ben for "allegations"

I agreee with this line of thought. Leftwich can manage the game and has won in this league. Dixon will be productive, but might not be as far along as we hope.

Plus, Dixon can then play WR since Bongtonio is gone.

Although Goodell sucks, I voted for Dixon.

Give me youth if I can't have Ben!

Any other opinion then that is just plain ridiculous!
Why is it that EVERY opinion other than yours in every thread that you post in is "just plain ridiculous?"
You do realize that there are hundreds (if not thousands) of members of this board and ALL OF THEM probably have an opinion which is different from yours, don't you?

It would be nice if you would start showing some RESPECT to others...

Sorry man but Lefty wasn't the problem. The bucs coaches and owners were looking for a scapegoat and they found it in Lefty. The problem wasn't Lefty it was the entire offensive production, the play calling, etc. They didn't fair much better after Lefty was benched.
