With Roethlisberger suspended for 4 weeks, this poses the question who will start in the all important quarterback role.
As Leftwich likely to be out for between 2-4 weeks with a sprained knee another QB option has disappeared.
This leaves Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon.
Both are no Big Ben. However both are suitable back-ups. Charlie Batch is a veteran and has good knowledge of the playbook as he played while Ben was injured in 2005 and 2006.
However Dixon is young and versatile. He can scramble and run with the ball if need be. Dixon has shown that he is a suitable option as a backup and can start in the next few weeks if need be and he is called upon.
My personal opinion is that the Steelers should start Dixon but its seems like they are leaning towards Charlie Batch on this occasion.
