Dixon kinda scare me but kinda dont.

What scares me is that when our DT's are rushing the QB and we are playing man coverage... QB's are able to run.

What doesnt scare me is everytime teams blitzed him this preseason.... He didnt look good and made allot of mistakes.

I'd like to see Spoon playing contain in this game. Lofton has his work cut out for him stopping Mendenhall, so I think Spoon spying Dixon would be the best thing for our defense.

Yeah, but I thought Batch gave them the best chance to win.

Same with me. I think we just have to concentrate on stopping the run with Mendenhall and Dixon.I really dont see Dixon beating us with his arm. The only way I see the Steelers pulling this one off is if there D can hold our O in check and we cant stop their run game.

Steelers are probably going to run it 75% of the time, and only let Dixon drop back about 20 times (if they are smart).

Thats why it would be great for the O to put some points up and get going early to force the Steelers to stray away from the run and force them to pass it. Also I think a big key will be stopping the run on first and second down and force Dixon into alot of third and longs.

I think that's a good idea. He only threw 26 passes against Baltimore last year. I think the game was close, and he was playing really well the first half (for a guy in his position). Then he got rattled. I would think our defense would be a really nice match up.
