    Is Omar Brown going to be the new Prescott burgess?

    Shrewd move. I liked Omar Brown in the pre-season. Hopefully we can resign him back to the PS after Sundays game.

    Thinking it may be a chess game, since the Stoolers on have one QB at the moment. I hope we can get Brown back.

    Good ole Byron Leftwich right?

    Savvy maneuver if it is take Dixon off market.... for 3 weeks?

    Yeah. I saw on their board that Heath Miller is the backup QB.

    They have two. Lefty and Batch.

    This doesn't preclude the Steelers signing Dixon from our PS. They can still do that, although, I would assume they showed no interest towards him, otherwise, I doubt he would have signed to the PS just yet.

    Yeah, Heath Miller would have been the backup QB last night because Batch was inactive.

    Re: Ravens re-sign Dennis Dixon to PS, release Omar Brown

    Off the top of my head there are 2 possible rationales for this move:

    1) Dixon was on our PS from the start of the season until recently. As one guy put it over on "Behind the Steel Shmatte", "It never hurts ... to have a little insight on their next opponent. While teams change their signals week to week, especially if a player gets released, he does have a sense of what's going on behind closed doors in Baltimore."

    2) And it cuts the other way as well--on the PS, Dixon will presumably run the offense that the D will practice against & having been a Stealer, he might have a better understanding of how that needs to be done.

    Resigning him to our PS means that to get him the Tar&Urine would have to make room on the 53-man roster, & they're already carrying a bunch of injured players waiting for them to get well. Had the Ravens not resigned him, Pittsburgh could have signed him to their own PS, picked his brains, & had him for instant elevation should something happen to Lefty or Batch.

    Little things can add up to a lot...
