    I'm ok with Batch but would have liked to see Dixon get some time.
    It's no fun when the rabbit has the gun

    Yes, thank you Mike Tomlin for taking my advice when we talked earlier this week

    This really is the right move, no question. If you expect Ben to try and get healthy for the post season you have to let him rest. Him staying "status quo" or "no worse for wear" after every game isn't going to cut it.

    The Rams secondary is atrocious as is their run D. Just a terrible defense. I wouldn't be surprise to see Batch throw 2 TD's and over 200 yds.

    I expect Dixon to see some action at some point in this game and to make a few big plays possibly...

    I can't figure out why it is Bruce Arians decision to start Batch when ownership ,Team management,and the Head Coach thinks Dixon is a better Choice . Prediction Batch won't last the 1st quarter

    With the Colts beating the Texans last night, the Rams could wind up with the #1 pick. So they have incentive to lose.

    If Tomlin wanted Dixon to start, Dixon would start.

    And I bet Arians comes out with an actual, usable, practical plan of attack. And the offense looks good, and not because Batch is not capable, but because he actually developed a strategy with the entire skill-set of the offense in mind, and not just by randomly picking obscure, nonsensical crap. Of course, this is Arians, who is fully capable of duping us, and even himself.

    My thoughts are the O will look better than it has all year.
