I hope the Browns play them one of the first 4 games. Even though I think Batch or Dixon could still beat us.

Pretty sure that Batch is the #2 and Dixon is the #3. The only reason Dixon played against the Ravens last year was because both Ben and Batch were hurt...

So, I imagine Batch will start the games Ben misses.

No, they said they are going with Dennis Dixon not Charlie Batch. This is straight from the Steelers.

Breaking News on ESPN this AM on Mike and Mike

THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN TODAY PERIOD
Look for this to happen next week after the draft
NFL has far too much happening this week and will NOT this to over shadow all the other business happening during this week!

something told me to buy a bunch of Dixon autos last season when they were $2-$5 a piece.

Moving on
Dixon is #2 with Batch #3
Dixon is just faster in the pocket right now then Batch
He is capable of running the offense short term. However, with only 1 game on his resume I am waiting to see how well he really can do. If they did not have the defense they have I would really worried about winning any of those games Dixon Starts.

The suspension will be announced either tomorrow or Wednesday. The league is not going to wait another week to get this over

NO WAY it will be tomorrow
They are releasing the 2010 Schedules tomorrow. Would be a huge media issue. I read Wednesday as well Personally I dont think it will be this week. Not with the draft this weekend
unless Mr Goodell just wants this done and over!

I had been thinking about trying to get some Dixon autos a few months ago

I see a heavy dose of Mendy and Moore during the time Ben is gone. Batch might be a cap casualty if they're already saying Dixon is the guy. Tehn I'd expect them to take a project QB in the later rounds. Obviously the Steelers either don't think Dixon is ready or don't see him as the future or they'd have been shopping Ben around by now BEFORE the draft.
