    Anyone that has every *****ed about Ben... will realize Sunday how silly it is.

    I think I'm going to go change my Week 12 picks a little bit. Always tough to beat Baltimore on the ground which leaves the passing game and Dixon is more of a Kordell-Lite type of guy

    Here comes the gameplan of run, run, run, punt. Hope our D picks Flacco off and take it to the house a couple times.

    Even if he had played against the Ratbirds, it would have been difficult for Ben to duplicate his last two performances against the Bungles and KC.

    Why? He has missed plenty of games (and portions of games) in his career. Batch and Lefty both did well filling in for him. Are we just going to realize how silly it is now because we are going to compare him to Dixon?

    In a stunning development, it appears Dennis Dixon and not Ben Roethlisberger will start at quarterback against the Baltimore Ravens tomorrow night after Roethlisberger experienced headaches recently after practicing this week.

    Doctors will test him today before the Steelers board their flight to Baltimore at mid-afternoon and again tomorrow to determine how he feels and if he can play at all.

    Although Roethlisberger said on Thursday that he felt fine, passed every test they'd given him and would start against the Ravens, he apparently began having second thoughts yesterday as he developed headaches following practices on Wednesday and Thursday. Roethlisberger left last Sunday's game in Kansas City with what were described as concussion-like symptoms after a blow to his head.

    Those symptoms disappeared on Monday and every test administered to him failed to show any symptoms of a concussion.

    However, Dixon took most of the snaps in practice on Friday while Roethlisberger took a few here and there.

    The Steelers plan to sign quarterback Tyler Palko from the practice squad today to their 53-man roster and he will back up Dixon tomorrow in Baltimore provided Roethlisberger does not suit up.

    Palko's first practice with the Steelers came Thursday after he cleared CFL waivers and was signed to their practice squad. Veteran receive Shaun McDonald will be released.

    Time for Dixon to seize the moment. Next year, he could be Ben's backup....and of course, I don't want to see Charlie go, so we can replace Arians with him

    What are the chances that Dixon does well enough to win ? 50/50 25/75 100/1 any opinions ?

    Now I don't look so crazy for being the only person in the contest to pick the Ravens this week. No way the Steelers win this game.

    You know we really had more adversity last season than this season if you count the injuries, punters or lack of punters, long snappers just to name a few.

    We did have Batch then Leftwich when needed and that is a luxury we do not have at this time.
    It shows one thing for sure..........Win your division !

    I know we did okay in Super Bowl 40 but, I'd hate to see us take that route again.

    My opinion is, we are a better team than our Super Bowl 40 team and the Bengals are not as good of a team from that season.

    i still like our chances and a Steeler win tomorrow could really place a great feeling over our players, change our karma and start the ball rolling.

    Well, I hate to say it, but it's probably a good idea for Ben to sit a week... I said it several places elsewhere that his performance a few years ago in Oakland after a concussion in the Atlanta game was attrocious. Besides, with all the medical talk about concussions it's just a good idea IMO.

    It's time for Dixon to earn his keep and for us to see if he really can be an adequate backup.... It's gonna be "interesting" to say the least.
