Default Dixon Named Starter vs. Atlanta

Dixon named starter for opener against Falcons
Monday, September 06, 2010
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Dennis Dixon will start at quarterback for the Steelers when they open the season Sunday against Atlanta at Heinz Field.

Coach Mike Tomlin confirmed that today after Dixon ran the first-team offense in practice and Charlie Batch ran the second team.

Dixon has made one start and just two appearances in his first two seasons with the Steelers. The Steelers were preparing Byron Leftwich to be their starter during Ben Roethlisberger's four-game suspension, but Leftwich will miss two to four weeks after a sprained MCL to his left knee in the second quarter of Thursday night's final preseason game.

Highly unlikey. It all will come down to personal and the packages we are going to run. I expect to see one of those guys in a 5 receiver, empty backfield set, but other than that, I expect us to be using a 2 back backfield/ Doubte Tight in Mendy/Redman; Spaeth/Miller most of the time for extra protection and possibilities.

Falcons fans say it doesn't matter


Still a win either way.

We have to force this dude to make mistakes.


LOL. Way to go Pittsburgh. Just mail in the loss. That bum will be destroyed. He's not even NFL caliber.

I think we just have to concentrate on stopping the run with Mendenhall and Dixon.I really dont see Dixon beating us with his arm. The only way I see the Steelers pulling this one off is if there D can hold our O in check and we cant stop their run game.

Sounds like a time to blitz every down!

Wow, what a completley moronic forum they got going on there. How can you sit there and underestimate the Steelers opening at home? I think this is going to be a tough test, without question. The reality of it is though, is that we STILL got one of the best defense's in football standing across from them with something to prove and Dixon sure does have weapons around him to lesson the burden of being young and inexperienced. I certainly have my doubts with Dixon in there, but I'm behind him 10000000% and think he could go in there and get it done.
