Look at it this way - he'll go down with a broken (insert bone/limb/appendage of choice here) inside of 3 snaps and Dixon will be thrust into the starter's role anyway.

batch of course. if no, then why even have him on the roster? IMO, backups should be veteran QBs, not 5th-round rookies who will most likely be a journeyman.

I picked Dixon for three reasons:

1st) I want the team to come together even more by rallying around a young quarterback

2nd) Maybe it will force the team to run more so as to put less pressure on Dixon

3rd) Would be good for Dixon to pick up some experience from where he left off last year.

I have to say Dixon we need to get him in there and let him have some playing time. He is not going to learn the system on the bench.

Camp will sort this out but I voted Dixon because I think he goes in as the #2. IMHO he'll beat out Charlie for that spot.

Without a doubt - Dixon.

I was hoping they wouldn't resign Batch and pick up Lefty again as I always felt totally comfortable with him behind center when Ben was out.

Dixon. I liked what I saw of him last year even though it was only for a limited amount of time.
