Atlanta Falcons linebacker Mike Peterson says he'd rather face Steelers' quarterback Dennis Dixon than Charlie Batch.

Ha ha he won't be saying that when Double d is runnin past him or hitting miller over the middle right on peterson. I would rather want to play against batch atleast you can tee of on him..

Personally I'd rather face Batch; he's less mobile and will stay in the pocket. You can see why they would say Dixon though because he's young and if you get him rattled you can force him into errant throws and get in his head.

the only thing that i hate about being a steelers fan is the disrespect that is given to us. After winning 6 super bowls you think that we would have the respect that the cowgirls or the giants have. But no matter how many times we prove people wrong still no respect. even other teams don't give us resepct. The cowgirls, patriots and colts always seem to be favored to win no matter how bad there team is. The media dolls them up. Tom brady or peyton manning could sexually harass someone and it would be the female's fault. The courts could sentecnce him for 4 to 5 years and brady or manning would prolly have their starting QB job waiting for him with a 10 year exstension. No suspensions. I just hate the disrespect that steeler nation gets. but i love the steelers been my team since i was old enough to know how to granny toss a football. prediction Steelers destroy the falcons by 3 touchdowns

Who cares, would you feel better if we were favored in the game? They're starter is playing ours is not, we lost Holmes, White is supposed to have a big year...I can see why we would be underdogs without Ben playing.

Yup. Dixon have the tools to do a good job. Im not saying he'll ever be an elite QB, but i think he is more capable of winning games than batch and leftwich.

I truly think that the Falcons are not going to take this game or DD seriously and that's ok with me! I think they think this will be an easy win for them....Every seems to focus on the "QB situation" everyone seems to forget about our Defense, especially with Troy and Aaron back....:yellowthumb:

Funny, I read an article on Wednesday that stated the exact opposite saying they would rather face Batch because he isn't as mobile as Dixon? Who do ya believe?

By 1:30 I hope Mike Peterson is saying, "Is it 4:00 yet, I'm tired of chasing that Dixon guy all over the field".

Get first downs by any means necessary and keep the defense off the field. Tackle Michael Turner and this one should be ours.

Roddy White, WR for the Falcons. Thanks. I thought about that later and said "DUH" to myself. Who is White? The guy I'm playing this week in Fantasy Football has him on his team so I should have known.

Who cares who the Falcons and/or Ravens would like to face. But I sure both are glad they done have to face Ben.

Finneran is built like a skinny tight end. 6'5 217 lbs...I can see him giving our corners problems especially in the endzone.

Hopefully the refs placed in front of an incoming woodley and harrison start calling some holding this year.. i really want to see if this helps us out.
