Default Dennis Dixon

This is the year they pull him out and use him as "SLASH II" on 3rd and shorts with a spread offense. Return the option play and give Big Ben one less hit.

Who's with me?

Third QB this year with the chance of being #2....MAY be used in trick formations but not so much as to warrant a "slash".

I'd rather trust Big Ben with the ball

Maybe every once in a while let Dixon try somethin but the idea of using him on all 3rd and shorts in a spread formation is stupid imo

our offense needs more deception and more options with counter blitz plays on 3rd down. why not have dixon jump in and make the D hesitate a bit more. give ben more time. soften the front line for Summers..

I don't care how they use him. But if they keep him, for Crissakes, USE him!

I'd have more time for the idea of having a trick-play QB if Slash 1 hadn't been a bust, and if we hadn't halved the offensive play-book when Arians and Tomlin came in.

I would like to see him get some time under center pre-season though.

We might as well make Dixon the #2 this year and Batch #3.

Because the only reason Batch would need to come into the game before the 4th quarter anyway is if Big Ben ain't coming back. If it's just a series or two, we ought to be fine with Dixon or whoever.

Also, Slash 1 wasn't a bust when we were using him as Slash. He was awesome. It's when we tried to make him a pure QB that he sucked.
