GO STEELERS!
It depends on how we look in those 4 games.

im getting pretty sick of your tone.

you have been warned repeatedly, and i already had to remove a post of yours today for arguing the basic enforcement of the simplest of rules.

9. Do not argue with the enforcement of the above commandments.

-If any of the Steelers Fever Administrators or Moderators tells you to comply with one of these rules, you must comply.
-If you argue the rules, you'll be warned.
-Keep it up, and you'll receive a temporary ban.
infractions are the next step (i think you are on thin ice in those regards), and perhaps you can be an example to serve notice to any newbs who need to review the above COC link.

Lets say, hypothetically because this would never happen, Dixon throws for 300 yards and 3 TDs in every game he starts. Obviously he won't replace Ben. I would say keep him in certain packages and utilize him during the season while Ben starts, and once the season ends, shop him around to a team that needs a QB and see what we can get for him.

To answer the original post, Ben comes back in in week 5. If Dixon has an absolute barn-stormer then perhaps we look to utilise him another way (though Arians is no Wisenhunt when it comes to the gadget playbook), but more likely than not he only sees further time in the middle if Ben gets injured (not impossible given recent history) or we're spanking teams every week. Come the close season, we'd be daft not to at least test the water in terms of trade value.

That is the most ridiculous thing I have heard. Why didnt the Pats do that with Brady? No they traded Bledsoe. Why didnt the Rams do that? No they traded Trent Green. Why didn the Packers do that? No, they kept Favre and traded Majikowski. Why didnt the Packers do that? No, they traded Favre and kept Rodgers. Why didnt the 9ers do that? No, they traded Montana and kept Young.

Over and over again, they stay with the hot guy and send the replaced "legend" packing. But I know I know. Ben is better than Favre, Montana etc. I get it lol

And just when has dixon shown he's the next montana? Against 3rd stringers?

So far it's more like the next kordell.

I guess this is a good problem to have. Tomlin will have little choice but to turn the offense to Ben. Or should he ride the hot hand of Dixon?


If we go 4-0 that would be great. Week 5 Ben Starts unless they feel he needs another week working with the Offense other than that Ben is the starter Period no matter how good Dixon does.
