Pittsburgh Steelers QB Dennis Dixon will receive time with the first-team offense in the team's preseason game Sunday, Aug. 29, reports CBSSports.com, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.





Great Ben is starting,,,I guess that means a whole quarter for Ben. Then a whole quarter for Lefty. Then in the 3rd quarter, Dixon will get a couple of Table scraps of two series at MOST with PART of the 1st teamer. Cause I guarantee you all of them won't be in there.

Actually...there's a good chance Dixon will see time with the first team in Denver.

Quote:
Pouncey might not be the only surprise starter Sunday night in Denver.

It looks as though Roethlisberger might make his second start of the preseason at quarterback and Dennis Dixon will get his first chance to run the first team after him.

"I intend to give Dennis Dixon some looks with the first group against some good people," Tomlin said. "I think he's earned that likewise. And that's what this preseason is all about."

Edit: I noticed you already posted that in the bottom of your notes ( I just scrolled through it ), why would you think then that Dixon would be getting 2nd and 3rd team table scraps?

Ben is in the way. Why get him sharp IF he is sitting for 4 weeks? Makes no sense. Let Leftwich and Dixon play and then let Ben play most of the last pre season game. Then during the Bye week let Ben get sharp for week 6. Ben is a seasoned vet, he doesnt need the work, DIXON does. Tomlin is a spinless idiot

youre in the way of real and legitimate football talk and conversation.

you dont know jack shit about football or preparation. ben AND pouncey need some real LIVE GAME snaps together to prepare for week 6.

are you really that clueless that it makes no sense to you?

good that keenan lewis is getting some extra work in too.

Tony get out of here with your talk about a QB and new center needing reps together. It's obvious you just started watching football. Come back when you have something bad to say about Ben.

You already did. I can tell by how upset you are getting about what another person posts. Shows you're weak.

So let me get this right, we should handicap our team early by trying to get a guy ready who cant play for SIX weeks? Enlighten me. You mentioned that Ben and pouncey need to get snaps etc. So what happens if its week 10 and Ben gets hurt (banged up) and Lefwich has to go in. Ben has been taking all the snaps from Pouncey from week 6 up until then. What does Leftwich do? He gets under center and takes a few practice snaps like ALL Qbs do. Whats he say "Hey coach I'm going to need a few game time snaps to make sure I'm ready to go in" OMG
