if there 4-0 and Dixon has a perfect QB rating in every game plus throws four 5td games without a single pick then i would say leave Dixon in. That's obviously not going to happen but its the only way Ben wouldnt be playing week 6

The Ben Lovers HATE these kind of threads. If Dixon is hot WHY would we trade him? It is a luxury to have two quality qbs. If anyone would get dealt (assuming Dixon tears it up) it would be Ben. From a business perspective it unhandcuffs the team. You get rid of his huge salary, you get value in return. Dixon is younger, more mobile. He will physically slow down a lot later than Ben would. In 4-5 more years Ben will be like Craig Morton (slow) and Dixon will still be fleet of foot (barring injury). I know you guys dont like to think about whats best for the team but I mean come on, its a no brainer.

Enter the 2 Super Bowl comments. To that I say the 9ers got rid of arguably the best qb in NFL History- Joe Montana for a fast, fleet footed youngster named Steve Young. And oh by the way.......Montana had won FOUR Super Bowls. But his situation fit the situation I just described above. Same goes for Favre and Rodgers. Who left? The OLDER SB winning qb. Makes business sense. And both Young and Rodgers were untested. Worked out fine as well.

If the Steelers are 4 -0, we will all have free bacon because pigs will be flying out of all of our asses.

Ain't gonna happen.

Dixon is not Steve Young he is Kordell Stewart. The Niners knew what they had in Young, a passer who could run. Dixon has given us no reason to believe he can be an NFL passer. I hope this changes, but i doubt it. Dixon is a Free Agent at the end of this year.

How did Young look in Tampa? How did he look in games he subbed for Montana? Average at best for the most part. I never said Dixon was Steve Young just highlighted a principle of how Ben is NOT untouchable like some of you think. Dixon did pretty well in his only start vs the Ravens. In fact our offense looked better under him than it did under Ben weeks later. Dixon had a TD dropped, where he placed it perfectly in Wallaces hands. A lucky play by the DB knocked it out. The jury is out on Dixon as a passer. Its not like Ben is a prolific passer anyways. Hes good but no Manning, Favre, Brees, Warner, Moon, Fouts, Aikman etc.

in a matter of 5 minutes you have posted 3 posts in succession. this is know as post wh0ring and post count padding amongst internet messageboard and forum circles.

please cease this practice immediately. there are tools at the bottom of your post box to help you out.

see the edit button? learn to use it. notice how i addressed all 3 of your quotes in a single post?

it is called the "multi-quote" feature denoted with the little "MQ" icon. please learn to use that as well.

If the Steelers go 4-0, I'd say they're in good shape. It doesn't matter who start those four games or after...

GO STEELERS!
