Dennis Dixon?



Ok, a diehard Oregon Duck fan that lives and works amongst a ton of Steeler fans here in the Washington D.C. area. Being out here for a few years and being able to follow Pittsburgh’s organization for a while, I can’t but help wonder how Steeler fans feel about Dennis Dixon coming in for up to 6 games while Ben is sitting out his suspension. Now, I really doubt he gets the whole 6 game suspension, if I had to bet it would be 2 or 3 max.

 

So that leaves you with the veteran QB you just picked up, Dixon and a few other scraps on the table. Charlie Batch doesn’t really count because he’s in bed by 7pm anyways after his pills. (not to bang on Charlie, he’s been a great leader in that locker room, and provided Dennis probably a ton of great advice- he’s just old!)

 

How do Steeler fans feel about Dennis Dixon? He played pretty well against Baltimore, and if the playbook hadn’t been so tied down I think he goes for more runs like he did on that long TD scamper in Baltimore. Dixon is a very high football IQ kid, works hard, was an Academic All-American, showed up with a smile and I think could hold the ship down just fine while Ben is out and start 2010 off in the right direction. Last thing Steelers need is to go 0-2, 1-2, or 0-3 and get bogged down early in the thick of the playoff race.
