There has been a lot of questions regarding who should start the first four games, maybe even six for the Steelers this season. Here is a look at the first two preseason game comparing Bryon Leftwich and Dennis Dixon.

Byron Leftwich: 9-16 138 yards 1 touchdown 105.7 passer rating 2 rush 11 yards

Dennis Dixon: 13-15 210 yards 1 touchdown 141.0 passer rating 11 rush 58 yards

If the preseason ended today, Dennis Dixon would be the starter.
