I doubt it's Batch we'll see on Monday night. Have a feeling Ben won't be watching this one from the sidelines. Hell, he may practice today. But if he doesn't play, it's are defense that needs to step it up.

I would much rather see Dixon over Batch. Batch has looked lost out there.

Batch is tougher, and more experienced than Dixon, and if our Running game is 100% ready, then Batch will help win it for us.
Dixon is ok too, if you like a firecracker up your azz, and hope it doesn't blow up in your face. 49'ers are gonna bring pressure all day, Dixon may be too much of a loose canon.
It's hard to say.
however, Batch did win the first 3 of 4 games for us last year, when Ben was out for 4 on his own suspension.
I would use both situationally, just to keep their Defense honest :)

Only way Batch could win this game is IF the running game could get rolling. Hes NOT going to sit back there and pick this niners D apart! Cmon man, who are we kidding, Ben will not miss this game!!!

I second that.
Batch is good as a "think" man holding the clipboard on the sidelines, but he's f-in terrible out on the field.

well, we have all seen Batch run, so for them to say he is running with the first team is a stretch, lol. More like walking and working with them, lol We need to run or walk lol quick slants with Batch, spread them wide and work it in quick and let Wallace and Brown break a 10 year pass into 50.

I wish they wouldve tossed Dixon in there hard, Batch is a big time stretch imo.

dixon would've beaten the Ravens if Arians wouldve kept on with the options, but he didn't

I really think we are being unfair if we are judging Batch just based on his play FOR 1 SERIES against the Brownies. He sure didn't look good, but I doubt he even took many, if any, snaps with the starting offense during that week. One play you are watching Ben and the next play you are under center... Yes, that's his job, but to expect him to come out and not be rusty, etc, is unfair.

Cripes, we've seen Ben struggle for entire games before.

I'd rather have Ben in there, but Batch isn't that bad. He's probably not much worse than the start on the 49ers!

I think the defense is going to have to win this game. If Batch is playing, I'm hoping for at least 17 points from turnovers - 1 pick six (or fumble) and the rest giving us good field position for another TD and FG.
