Default Dixon or Lefty weeks 1-4?

I say weeks 1-4 and hopefully that will be it.

I hate the dreaded 'QB competition' that you hear about in camp. We know what Lefty brings - the question is do we have the guts to go with the unknown, provided he has a reasonable training camp and preseason?

i want to see DD play, Lefty on the bench to relieve him if need be.

Now if only the Dolt BA can devise a gameplan with a man of his talents (unlike what he did vs. Balt last year) Let the kid move, get outside the pocket, sling it, option it - do whatever he does best rather then dumb down the playbook and go ultra conservative.

Our D will be solid - 20 points each week should take us at least to 3-1

what say you?

What about Batch?

Anyway, I'm guessing Dixon is the announced starter for the "suspension" games. Tomlin likes him, and he'll be getting plenty of first team reps.

I think Dixon will give us the best games. The D is going to have to step up either way.

Leftwich missed a golden opportunity by going to Tampa last season. Much like several other players except for Rod Woodson. A lesson learned.

If Lefty would have stayed he would be starting. As it stands, let them fight it out in camp. If Dixon beats him out and Lefty does not start, he will not be on the team very long. The FO is very loyal to Batch and he will probably be allowed to finish out this season with a clipboard no matter who starts.

I'm all for Dixon. I hope he comes in and tears it up. I just hope he put on some weight over the offseason tho. Dude is like a beanpole out there. Anyways, best of luck to #10.

Leftwich HAD a golden opportunity in Tampa. You get dropped to 3rd string behind a rookie QB (I'm a K-Stater so I had no complaints!) and you probably don't have much left in the tank. Batch can't stay healthy, but I think he'll get the nod just for his maturity and skills. He'll probably get hurt and we'll send in Dixon. Leftwich won't survive cuts to opening day.

I'm not sure which I want, I am leaning toward lefty, because he is a vet, but the team likes Dixon...

After that Baltimore game I would say 100% Dixon, but I think Lefty should have an opportunity as well. Maybe 2-2.
