After the injury to Leftwich, I figured it would be Dixon starting week 1, but it actually looks like it will likely be Charlie Batch. So, if you're a fantasy team owner, either trade your Steelers WRs or at least drop them to the bench. On the flip side of that, any offense that is generated by this team will likely be on the run, so do what you can to acquire their RBs, if possible.

Charlie Batch... Wow. All I can say about him is that I'm still very glad he no longer wears a Lions jersey.

He will get knocked out by mid game with that line, so Dixon will get in. laugh.gif

Batch actually has a good arm but like Leftwich his mobility might hurt with that O line. On the other side Dixon is too rushed to acurately throw, so he runs. Not a great choice either way.

But what do you expect when the NFL unfairly suspends a player accused and only fines players that are convicted or there is video proof ??? Don't get me wrong, I think Ben may be quilty of stupidity and may deserve some punishment, but he was not convicted. So if you are handing out suspensions for non-conviction infractions, then what more do you need when a player is convicted of carrying a firearm into an airport to hand out a suspension or assults a bartender at a strip club?

If you want to hand out suspensions hand them out equally, not randomly at an idiots discretion.

Roger Giddell is a good commissioner who is trying to lay down the law and set an example. Unlike David Stern or Bud Selig, he's not afraid to take action against of the league's stars.

It's unfortunate that Dennis Dixon is not starting. He's played well and Charlie Batch has thrown all of 2 passes the past 2 years.

I thought Dixon was the for sure starter! I wish the best for Batch, even when I look back and remember all those interceptions he threw while with the Lions. laugh.gif

I thought Batch was still suffering from that vicious paper cut on his clipboard holding hand?

That may be the case, but I think he's playing through it anyway... good thing about the clipboard hand, it's also the non-throwing hand. wink.gif

Seriously???? Can I have some of your koolaid? 4-5 other players have committed crimes and a few were convicted and all they got was fines, how is that "laying down the law". Ben you were accused and you bought shots for underaged women (who were illegally in the bar), so you deserve a 4 game suspension. Vince you were in a strip club and beat up a bartender on camera but its ok???? Seems to me that he is afraid to take action against some players.

The Vince Young incident was a class C assault charge, which even the police officers on the scene described as being "like a parking ticket."

Yeah, I saw that... and was a little disappointed. My best friend is a Steelers fan, and he hates Charlie Batch with a passion. Oh well.
