they must not follow the steelers, because i've been saying all along charlie batch is no joke. as long as our o-line can hold him upright he's every bit as dangerous as ben imo

of course the big worry is that he needs better blocking from the o-line because he's not as durable or elusive. but the o-line did their job today

^^ This. I was most comfortable with Charlie over Leftwhich or Dixon. With the offense's capabilities of gameplan with a whole week around the ability of Batch, we were bound to break out. Charlie is a weapon and he unleashed it today. The senior citizen still got it! Has been so solid for us since 2002. What a great player to have around.

If he can go out and beat Baltimore next week, then I think Charlie earned his spot next season by default as a Pittsburgh Steeler and beyond.

Before that last pick I was thinking the same thing.

If he wins at Baltimore next week, Leftwich may be in trouble. He's been saying how much he loves the organization but...

The ideal thing would be to trade Dixon. He has some talent but I'm sure he does not want to spend his career sitting on our bench and we don't have the type of team to waste a year developing him. We are not going to offer him a big contract. A team like Buffalo or Carolina might like a Dennis Dixon. They can waste this season developing him and he can be ready by next season.

Leftwich can serve as #2 and Batch as #3. We really don't need Dixon.

I don't want to think about next year, but it's looking like Ben, Batch, Leftwhich thus far. Hell, Dixon can be put on IR the rest of the year when Ben returns. Dixon will def compete, but I agree that he should have opportunity elsewhere when all said and done but it's too early to tell.

Yeah...I like the kid. Why should he waste his career behind Ben? Also he does us no good as a #3 because they work with the scout team and do stupid things like that. A #2 at least gets to continue to master the playbook and work with the second team.

I was referring to this year when Ben comes back in 8 days. If they will not let Dixon be #2 and continue to develop with our playbook, they should try to trade him to Buffalo or Carolina.

That IR thing is convenient to delay the decision but nobody will be hurt badly enough for that.

i think the Steelers will carry only 2 QBs and use ARE as an emergency third. Leftwich could get cut and Dixon should be placed on IR.

Dixon's meniscus injury is minor...like 3 weeks. Beenie Wells had the same surgery I think.

The Steelers will carry 3 QBs.

Thinking of teams that overuse the IR to protect players, last time I looked the Raven had like 8 players on IR. We only have 2.
