Default Dixon Absolutely HAS to be our starter at QB

Cause the simple fact is...Lefty Sucks!! I mean when he is in the game, the other teams Defense just tee's off on him cause he is so slow, and has no escape ability whatsoever! Also considering Flozell Adams looks so horrible, we NEED a QB who can scramble out of trouble once Adams man passes him faster than " Paris Hilton " can say YES to Sex!


Please Tomlin,,,grow a Brain!! And start Dixon!!

Tomlin sees these guys every day in camp and will see them throughout the preaseason. Leftwich is slow, absolutely, but Dixon is not clearly the better choice...at least not yet. Dixon may be faster, but he still has alot of holes in his game.

Dixon is way more explosive and lets face it Ben has to scramble because of that line play and theres no way that grandpa leftwich can hold up behind that line. Dixon plays very well under pressure and after they took the cuffs off him last year vs. the ravens he played very well ! Dixon is the man for the job !

Dixon right or for wrong has driven the ball everytime tonight. And it does not matter if the Lion back-ups are in or not. Their starters aren't gonna catch him either. No, I don't want Dixon throwing the medium to long patterns over Lefty either. But Lefty can't throw them either...not when his A$$ in on the turf. Dixon FORCES Defenses to worry about more because of his diversity and his fleet feet. Lefty brings none of that. This is a No-Brainer faans. And IF Tomlin goes with Lefty, well then HE has No Brains!!

What do you know?

Apparently you don't know that there's a big difference between being a hero against the 2nd string and bubble players in preseason and doing it in the real games.

I'm not saying Dixon is garbage but you gotta have more than "he drove the ball everytime" against the practice squad and backups of one of the worst teams in the league.

A 66 Yd TD to Brown..( Who has clearly outplayed Sanders )...so,,,are we LEARNING yet! ? BTW, not alot, but several KEY Detroit players I see are still playing. And besides, Dixon is doing this with back-ups on his side as well. Look, BOTTOM LINE is...ANYONE who thinks Lefty is a better QB option for us then Dixon IS a Mother F;ing Moron!



Period!!

Dixon played fairly well against the Ravens last year, considering he only had like a day to prepare.

Dixon has a long way to go. I think mainly what people are arguing is that he is a better option than Lefty. That remains to be seen, but I am hoping Dixon starts next game to see more of him against 1st string Ds.

I'm really not too trilled about either one of them. Lefty didn't have any success throwing the ball, or even moving a foot inside the pocket. The thing that worries me about Dixon is that he seems almost too prone to take off scrambling instead of looking downfield for something to develop. It will be interesting to see how many times he threw the ball compared to how many times he tucked it away and took off.

Ben, Ben, Ben... Why couldn't you have just stayed out of Milledgeville?
