Dennis Dixon will start at quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers when they face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night at M&T Bank Stadium.

    I am really disappointed in the boys this year. We have a kicker that can’t tackle. Our Secondary is giving up too many mid yardage plays. Defensive Line is as good as always. Great job by Dennis to keep the game close last week.Offensive line giving good protection. We are getting beat by too many crappy teams like Oakland and DA Bears and KC. They better figure out what is going on and fix it. Looks like they will have to win out the rest of the way to have even a slim chance of making the playoffs. Go Black and Gold.
