If we came out of those first 4 games with a 2-2 record that would be a gift.

The Falcons, Titans, and Ravens will all be tough games for us. The only gimme there is the Bucs. Anything more than 2-2 would be pure gravy.

Dixon can hit him for 5 TD's but that's doesn't mean he will catch any of them...

i would let dixon start the whole year, if he does well, why the **** sit him when hes on a roll, i still think he can be a better qb than matt ryan and flacco

The Bengals were a good team last year, no shame in losing to them. I think the gimmes he was referring to were the Raiders, Browns, Chiefs.

He might be a better QB than Flacco, but he's not in Ryan's league. Ryan had very similar attributes to Ben when he was drafted. And yeah if you put 2 and 2 together, that means Dixon is not in Roethlisberger's league.

You don't sit a $100 QB because Dixon is on a roll. And by roll I mean 4-0. There's no way he'll ever get the numbers Ben did last year. Especially without a Santonio Holmes. Look kid, I know you're only 17 but the Steelers did not have a franchise QB for 30 years. 30 years! Do you understand this number? You don't just give up on him for an alleged crime that he wasn't charged for.

I do think Dixon is going to be better than most people think though. He has the rest of the offseason to prepare for these games, not 24 hours. The whole team can prepare for Dixon over Ben. No Gravity, I think you will be surprised by the level of his play, not saying he is as good as Ben, but you will be surprised.

I hope you are right and the kid comes out an awesome gunslinger. You are right for sure about having time to prepare for the big show. I just hope if he is that good he doesn't go anywhere in the future we need a good quality back up to Ben.
