Default A Hypothetical

2:30 left in the 4th quarter of next year's AFC Championship game against the Pats. Steelers are down by 2, and have received the ball at their 10. While running out to take the field, Ben trips over one of Hampton's KFC empty containers and sprains his ankle. He won't be able to finish the game. Who do you want going out there to take over the offense, and why?

Yes, but it seems like as if Batch doesn't do well at all, when he's called into the game cold. I think I'd prefer Dixon.

OTOH, if we won, but Ben wasn't going to be ready for the Superbowl, I'd want Batch to be named the starter, and take the majority of reps.

Doesn't matter because we'll have mixed up our signals during the TV timeout. Then the Pats* will think we're calling a deep pass when it's really a dump over the middle to Willie or Memoand we'll be to midfield in one play. That leaves us ample time to get into Reed's FG range.

I put Dixon, not because I'm all that confident in the guy, but because it seems like Batch is probably old and shaky now.

The punter. At least the patsies won't score on a pick 6.......so the Stillers at least cover.

You know New England will be a t least a 7 point favorite.

Seriously though....I don't really care for hypothetical questions that involve the franchise going down, bad karma to put it out there IMHO.

FWIW I don't have a plan in mind if an asteroid hits the field that day either, but if it does I trust Tomlin to make the correct assessment of the situation and act accordingly without a poll of the fans.

Bellichek's defense would eat Dixon alive.

They always beat a run first, throw second QB.

Charlie is not the greatest option either, but he would atleast give us a chance and wouldn't panic.
