Hey Gal,,,Hands down...? How is that ? Lefty played against horrid teams when he was here, and only did good against a Washington team that sucked to. But that was his Home town. I mean Lefty was so good he couldn't beat out two rookies in Tampa . I like him. But no way should he just be GIVEN the starters job. He should be made to beat out Dixon in camp, and pre-season games.



Any other opinion then that is just plain ridiculous!

This one was close. I went with Dixon because I'm anxious to see this upside I think/hope he has. I think it's a nice problem to have though, and feel sort of comfortable with either one. But of course not as comfortable as with BB.

That I can agree to. That laser pass to Sweed that was dropped was right on target and out of there fast. Ben makes Wallace come back to the ball all of the time which leads me to believe he is not capable of getting the ball out early on a timing route to catch Wallace in stride. He just throws the ball up for grabs and Wallace was fighting for possession instead of running away from them. Ben should be working on that aspect in the offseason instead of screwing around in college bars. Maybe he will get religion like Ray Ray did. (yeah sure Ray, I really believe you are a religious person

Actually Lefty did beat them out in training camp numb nuts. Tampa was just so bad as a team after the first few games they figured they'd give the young guys experience rather than waste a season under an aging veteran.

Lefty is head and shoulders above Dixon. Dixon is no better than Randel El at QB.

Ben won't count against the roster during his suspension and Batch will most likely be let go once Ben returns. Not that hard to figure out.

Yeah, and I just BET that after Ben's suspension that you think Dixon should be cut right ? Or no wait...moved to WR right ? Look son...Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.
