Dixon is the best backup to Ben the Steelers have right now. They should keep him

Flashes in the Falcons game where he threw for no TDs and went 3 and out over and over again?

Last year I got slammed on this board for pointing out how inexperienced and unproven Dixon was before the first game of the season against Atlanta.

I was called an anti-fan for even daring say anything negative about the Steelers starting QB

Now you guys are ready to toss this guy out. Dixon has always been what he is - a good backup. I can't see another team give up anything for that.

I've always said he sucked. He still hasn't proven me wrong.

Can't read defenses, horrible mechanics, locks on to one receiver too often, and has a very weak ARM.

I think they keep Ben, Lefty and Batch. The experience of starting NFL games is an advantage and Lefty and Batch have it. Plus it would be good to keep Batch around for a future coaching positon somewhere in the organization. Dixon doesn't impress me. He has speed, but he still has trouble reading defense and doesn't look the field over....usually checks a target then runs. Dump him. Just my opinion.
