Default Goodell's Suspension may Backfire

Some may view Ben's suspension as a negative. It looks like it may provide positive results. Dixon's development is encouraging and he will provide trouble for opposing defenses. Even if Lefty is name the starter, Dixon will be a "neo" slash role for the whole season. (Dixon has much more upside than Kordell.)

Second, Ben will be well rested and not as battered. He'll come is fresh for a 10-12 game run to the playoffs.

Still, the steelers need to win half their games without Ben. Ben must be sharp when he returns.

IF those two things can hold true, the Steelers may enter the playoffs as the strongest team and the team to beat.

The Positive I do see is that Dixon may get a chance to show he is a legitimate backup and some one who can succeed Ben when he is at the end of his career.


And if not this way you go out and get another your guy to groom as a the future QB.

How is Dixon gonna succeed Ben ? Ben has another 8 years in him before he even comes CLOSE to slowing down, and anopther 3 years after that. Dixon won't stay here. If he shows anything, and I know he will, other teams will want him as their starter. Don't be surprised if Arizona goes after him after this season.
