Uh Ben was 29% last season on 3rd down and he was a SIX year vet. Dixon was only in his 2nd game. Care to comment? Arians fault? The line? The weather?

You people in the doom and gloom crowd crack me up. Our 3rd string QB went 18-26 in his 2nd NFL start against a good team and we won. IT wasn't pretty, but the 1st couple games of the season rarely are. WE STILL FREAKING WON THE GAME!!! Jesus tap dancing christ I'll be fine with 2-2 when BR gets back, if we can manage to go 3-1 I'll be ecstatic.

Ben has had one of the highest 3rd down and long completion percentages since he's been the league. He is close to the best quarterback on 3rd and longs.

Most of our failed conversions come on 3rd and short. Wonder why?

Sure I'll comment. Dixon sucks. He'll be a career 3rd string QB after Ben comes back.

Don't care we won in spite of Dixon. Not because of him. I would feel really bad for our D if we lost that game.

Reminds me of the "we are 13-3 with Rex Grossman at quarterback." That turned out pretty well!

I agree.

I'm especially concerned about the Ravens game.

Dixon ain't no Big Ben so I'm just praying for one more win.

Substantiate those stats please. You say Dixon sucks? I dont care, its your opinion. I dont get mad because one expresses his opinion. For the record I wanted Batch/Leftwich is not Dixon. So............

That game was kind of like SB 40 huh or last year vs the Vikes huh? Where the qb gave us nothing.
