Default Dennis Dixon

Just thought this forum needed a change in scenery if you know what I mean.

To make this slightly on-topic, do you trust him to start over Batch in the event of a you-know-who (not going to say his name because Ive heard it too much recently lol) suspension?

Yep. He has to get experience somehow. Besides, chances are he'd start anyway because Batch would probably trip over the down marker chain and fracture an ankle when he tried to get on the field.

I like Dixon more than batch. Especially his ability to make plays with his legs. I still can't believe Batch made one throw all season and broke his wrist. Pathetic lol

Yeah, I want to see DD play. I think Batch is really serving as a QB Coach/Mentor and is good for DD.

I figured he'd throw his shoulder out brushing his teeth.

matt cassell was on the verge of being a training camp cut, then was thrown into the fire and pulled out an 11-5 season for the patriots.

then again, he didnt have bruce arians as his genius coordinator (who should use him as a WR/KR to avoid wasting his talent) so who knows.

i do feel he's capable of executing a well thought out game-plan as shown vs the ravens last year (ben lost his 1st game played vs. the ravens in 2004 with pretty decent stats and an int).

Hell yeah Dixon would do o.k. He almost beat the Ravens last year with no real preperation because he wasn't going to start till the night before the game. At least if a suspension is given to you know who, Dixon will at least get some snaps and practice time in advance of starting

I would say yes Dixon just needs to get some playing time and get the feel for the game. Batch has to be getting toward the end of his career.
