    I am all for Batch over Dixon.. Batch knows are O and is a 16 year vet. I just don't think Dixon is all that and with him I see us going 0-4 or 1-3 with Batch we can go 4-0 or 3-1. I also think the players respond better to Batch then Dixon.

    I disagree, I think Dixon will start week 1 and manage the game well enough to win. I would MUCH rather see him start in the week 4 game against the Ravens over both Leftwich and Batch. We need a mobile QB against Baltimore, a slow and beat up Leftwich isn't going to win us the game and that one is the most important of the 4.

    We have one Starting QB, thats Ben.. The others are backups.. Bench Warmers..

    The coaches have to make the backups look good and put them in the best position possible to win.. BA and MT are responsible for this to work out well. they need to come up with some real nice game plans and work the plays to make the WRs, RB's, QB's strengths shine so they have the best chace to win.. Ben's scrambling and the no-huddle are gone for 4 weeks...

    I'm starting to believe that Steeler fans have no comprehension of the quarterback position.

    This applies for those of you who think:
    1. Ben is not a top tier quarterback
    2. Charlie Batch is still a quality quarterback
    3. Charlie Batch will start over Dennis Dixon
    4. Dennis Dixon played great against the Ravens in 2009 (had to add that)

    oh i know, the steelers success doesnt matter on who plays QB but rather how mendenhall plays....however batch doesnt open things up for mendenhall at all, dixon does....twice the arm and 10x the wheels

    Batch was going to get snaps last night no matter what from what I understand, although the plan wasn't to get him in that early. It's not an indication so much if Dixon will get the job or not, but rather with Lefty down and at the time no indication of how bad it was, they had to make sure that Batch had some significant snaps because the only healthy QB eligible to play besides Charlie, is Dixon. You need to have your 2 main QB's with atleast some type of reps in preseason.

    I just can't envision this not being Dixon's gig. Put CB at #2 and help the kid along the same way he works with BR when he comes off the field. DD is going to make mistakes, no doubt about it, but the plays he can make can totally balance that out.
