Default Glad we have Dixon

If BB does get suspended I am glad we have Dixon waiting in the wings. I think the kid has a rocket for an arm and with a little more play time may rival our beloved starter. Goodell will not bat an eye to suspend BB if any charges come forward he is a pole smoker extraordinaire in my book and will do it just for PR for the NFL.

Anyways Dixon looked great last preseason throwing the ball, he adds an element of mobility, and he damn near won us a game against the Rat-Birds coming off the bench. If BB does have to hit the pine for being a dumb ass I think Dixon will give the Rooney's something to think about for the future.

Don't get me wrong I love BB and don't want to see anything happen to him or the team but Goodell is well Goodell and the Rooney's don't seem to like bad PR and BB is bringing it in droves even if he had zero to do with any of it. I hate the fact but we know history.

ben will be our qb this season. its next season we have to worry about if he is found guilty. if charges are brought they will delay the trial until next offseason. hopefully we can get a good qb next draft

With the commish wanting to meet with BB, my guess is he will eventually suspend him for the first 4 games of the season.(conduct detrimental to the NFL) I have always felt that Dixon was a major steal for us in the 5th round. Thjere is no doubt in my ind we would still be a super bowl contendeer with Dixon. If ben is suspended it sure will make for interesting chat on these forums.

You don't think Dixon will be able to handle it? I mean the guy was in the running for Heisman before he blew out his ACL playing for Oregon and he has had plenty of time to recover from that and learn Arians offense. I really think if he is given half a chance he will shock many a Steeler fan. He has a rocket for an arm and is extremely mobile.

I think the chance of Ben receiving any sort of suspension is very likely, whether he's actually charged or not. Bottom line is, Goodell is suspension happy and it wouldn't surprise me one bit. As I've mentioned in other threads, no matter what ends up happening, Ben needs to avoid putting himself into these situations. I have full confidence in Dixon if need be.

Sorry guys, not to put a damper on the DD love BUT, as Bill Parcels says, I wouldn't get the annointing oil out just yet for Dennis Dixon. Teams haven't had to game plan against him yet because he hasn't played that much. You have to remember, when he came in & played in Balti, they didn't have much time to game plan for him as well. I want to see what he can do when other teams know he's playing & have a game plan for him. IF he does well at that point, then I can say ok, looks like we have a steal with this guy. BUT, until that happens, I'm reseving judgement.

I agree with you. Check any post I ever mentioned Dennis Dixon. I like this guy. He can out throw Ben but, I hope Ben did not do it.
