Steelers reacquire QB Byron Leftwich - NFL - Yahoo! Sports (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=AomSVwKuiinbof8fK0b6njAdsLYF?slug=ap-bucs-steelerstrade)

Could Big Ben be on his way out?

I don't think Ben's starting job is in jeopardy. I think it's more insurance in case he gets suspended. I think they are looking to trade him, but that is yet to be seen.

He will be suspended, It's just a matter how many games. My guess is two.

I heard Tom Cable was interested in him, but Al Davis said no, cause his 40 wasn't fast enough.:chiefs:

I doubt Big Ben leaves. Think of it this way.. Who would you rather have starting for the Steelers? Charlie Batch, Dennis Dixon, or Byron Leftwich? I think it's hands down that Leftwich is the best choice there.

Dixon wasn't too bad.

Dixon wasn't too bad.

He played very well at Oregon and if memory serves me right he was in Heisman talk while he was there. But one game that he played in last season is hardly enough to tell if he can completely handle the team. If they decide to start Dennis Dixon it might be a good thing if they do in fact trade Ben though I don't see it happening. Byron Leftwich I believe is just added insurance. Leftwich was once a Steeler and is familiar with the system and played well in it.

Big Ben will be suspend 4-6 per NFLN.

Sticken, Dixon was awesome in Oregon. I am sure giving a chance in the NFL, he can be just as good.
