Default What do you want with Dixon?

Because I like Dixon, I would really like to see the Steelers get rid of him so he can have the opportunity to develop elsewhere. There are many teams that need a new QB.

He is too young to spend his career aging behind Ben. We need someone who realizes that he is limited and is satisfied to just be a back up (like Lefty).

So what do you want to happen to Dixon?

As an example, Buffalo, SF, or Arizona might benefit from Dixon. Some how I see him as a good fit for Buffalo.

I just think Dixon is just being wasted. He should have at least done some arena league or something to get his skills up. Sitting on the Steelers bench won't do the trick. I'd like to see him get a shot in Buffalo or SF.

I wish we could get a second or 3rd round pick for him but not likely. Buffalo is the perfect fit and their third is like a late second. They could get him and not have to waste one of the first 2 picks on QB.

People are crazy if they think Leftwitch and Batch are valid backup QBs for this team. Almost all good teams have a good backup QB rotting on the bench in case the starter gets hurt. If you don't then you are not prepared and might as well write off a season if the starter gets hurt. If you want to let Dixon go who do you honestly think should be a backup to Ben on this team? Leftwitch is a joke. Batch is done. How long did Aaron Rodgers sit behind Favre? Steve Young? Etc. The way to learn the game is be on a good team like the Steelers and watch from the bench, not go to some scrub team where they will get killed.

I see Dixon as being the next Rob Johnson. Has a couple above average games with the Steelers, somebody thinks he's a superstar, and he gets a contract he'll never live up to.

Maybe he's just not worth a deal right now being that he sat to long. Good point tho, he may end up goin backwards .

He was drafted for and as a good athelete. 1) of course he has to stay healthy. But 2) besides a capable back up for Ben if Charlie's time has come, see "good athelete. IF there was an OC that could/would utilize his talents a la Randal El and Slash there could be added dimensions to the offense. There was a lot of speculation when he was drafted that he could fill a unconventional play roll. But emphasis on "If there was an OC . . . . . ." lol
