Given the chance today, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin declined to say whether QB Ben Roethlisberger would be given his starting job when he returns from his four-game suspension.
"I'm going to dodge that one and not artfully," Tomlin told Sirius NFL Radio. "I'm not going to back myself in corner."
That’s probably best. After all, there’s no sense at this point in telling Dennis Dixon that, no matter what he does or how he plays or if he leads the Steelers to a 4-0 record, that he’ll immediately give up his starting spot when Roethlisberger returns.
But honestly, does anybody buy this? Is there any chance Roethlisberger isn’t starting at quarterback for Pittsburgh on Oct. 17 against Cleveland?
I’m going with no.
