Default Report: Steelers are waiting for ...

Byron Leftwich to become available.

Has the media in Pittsburgh reporting this? I think BL would be better to have than Batch.

I would like to see Leftwich and Dixon be given an equal chance to compete for either the 2nd string job or the starters role if Ben can't get his mess cleared up in time.

Would love to see Byron back in the black and gold. Hope it's true. Nobody can take Ben's place or give us the thrilling plays quite like he does...I'll just take the wins if he is out for any period of time.

Based on one good half against the Redskins. I'd rather see Dixon take the reins if the worst comes to pass. There is a reason Leftwich was available when Batch broke his collarbone in preseason and there is also a reason he was unceremoniously benched by TB.

I actually see where yo are coming from....I would love to see Leftwich back in a Steelers uniform...BUT...he very well might be behind Dixon on the depth chart.

Bring Lefty in for the right price and he fits the perfect role as a mentor for Dixon and an extra set of experienced eyes to disect the defense for Ben from the sidleline.

agreed. i think dixon gives our team the best chance to win(with the obvious exception of ben) and i would rather him be back there then leftwich. dixon has a good arm and the ability to scramble and take it home anytime he touches the ball.

I'll take Lefty back as a #3 only. He was terrible last year at TB.
