Batch has showed that his handle over the offense over the years is good enough to come in and give us what we need. A well managed game that can get the running game going and control a clock managed game to give the defense a shot at winning the game. Everyone thinks that with Dixon in there, we are going to explode with flavor when in reality, he will go in there with a vanilla playbook and be asked not to lose the game. If that's the case, Batch is our best option at game manager who can take care of the football by any means necc. I believe using Dixon in spark-like packages is the key to success the first 4.

Batch starting with Dixon coming in for a spark is what I'd like to see.

Based on one preseason game? Batch will make mistakes because he has no arm strength or mobility. The last time Batch started a game for us he threw 2 picks and was outplayed by Troy Smith.

I was not a fan of starting Dixon over Leftwich but if you gave me the choice of Dixon or Batch, I would want Dixon. I know what I have in Batch but I don't really know with Dixon. Being pushed to the wall like this, I am now ok with rolling the dice with Dixon. Dixon wasn't worth the risk when we had Leftwich around but he is with Batch as our only other option.

I'll root for whoever Tomlin goes with obviously, but I think Batch would be the better option.

Not me. Arians is not Whisenhunt. Plus with 8 and 9 in the box we will be forced to pass. You cant impose your will on a team that is stacking 9. Simple math, 6 and 7 cant block 8 or 9. I see us passing 26-32 times.
