hopefully lefty starts this week in denver. that may end this crap this week.
arizona starters looked bad against the titans, dont tell me leinart is not as good as lefty.
and lefty willl never beat the titans.
Im not overly concerned about BL starting past week 1 of the season!! He will struggle against the Falcons and be replaced by DD and he will be the starter the other 3 games BB is out.
I think what he has to do is not be in such a defensively dominant division. They are afraid to give him the experience fearing the whole would be to deep to dig out of. Stupid thing is, as we all know and have said, he has to get the experience somewhere......
Dixon has to goto another team and Philly i think would love him.. McNabb is gone
and it would be like having Randall come back.. Philly would let him play his game and let him grow into the pocket as he gets more time on the field.
We have Leftwich and Batch.. Trade Dixon.. We need another 5' 10" WR.
Maybe a light came on .Mike Tomlin on some of his plans for the game in Denver on Sunday night: "I intend to give Dennis (Dixon) some looks with the first group against some good people. I think he's earned that. That's what this preseason is about."
Here's the scoop:
This is Dixon's last year under contract. If they let Dixon start, he will show the whole NFL how good he is and there will be no way we can resign him next season. So, they are doing everything they can to not showcase him.
Don't get me wrong, if they didn't think they had another viable option in Leftwhich then Dixon would have no choice but to start. But since Leftwhich is here, they are going to do everything they can so Dixon can't really show his stuff.
Leftwhich is going to start.
The Steeler way...is the only way.
From what I've heard (and I got this from Stan & Guy podcast a few days ago) Dixon doesn't know the playbook as well as Leftwich, and he doesn't have command of the huddle (ie - the vets don't believe in him as much as Byron).
IMO - and it might not be popular - but if there's 90 seconds left, the Steelers are down by 4 and they have to drive 50+ yards down field, I think I'd rather have Leftwich.
