OT: Dennis Dixon may start for Steelers this weekend

Big Ben is banged up, but I was surprised to see he had worked his way up to 2nd string on the defending champs. Thought it might be of interest for all those that have Oregon 2007 as "unacceptable". Even after blowing out his knee, the cat is good.

The Steelers normal backup, Charlie Batch (yeah, he's still playing) hurt his wrist a few weeks ago and just had surgery on it. Personally, I hope Dixon tears it up, because everyone's already writing him off.

Always liked Dixon when he played at Oregon. He was a heisman threat and they had a shot to go to the National Title before he got hurt a few times late in the season. I hate the steelers, but I hope he does well.

Does this mean Ben had a relapse? Or was Mike Tomlin just saying Ben would start at QB to get an advantage? All the reports indicated Ben was "passing all the concussion tests and would start".
