Discuss What Steelers Quarterback The Falcons Will Face

It started out as Ben Roethlisberger. Then it was Byron Leftwich. Now it could be Dennis Dixon or Charlie Batch.

Yes, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback situation is in turmoil. Yes, it makes it difficult for the Falcons to plan. No, I don't believe it will spell our certain doom. But it's still worth discussing.

Given that both Roethlisberger and Leftwich are out, who will play against the Falcons during the first game of what will hopefully be an awesome NFL season? Will it be Charlie Batch, he of the ho-hum pedigree and occasional starter over the last several years? Or will it be Dennis Dixon, as raw as a freshly picked turnip but at least twice as talented?

I'll go ahead and kick it off by guessing Batch. The Steelers are a conservative team and Batch is the conservative choice. He's definitely not as talented as Dixon—despite the pre-season struggles the guy had, he's got a good future in the NFL—but he knows the offense. The Steelers are just going to ram Rashard Mendenhall down our throats, anyways.

Discuss, my friends, and enjoy your Saturday!
