Just kidding — Dennis Dixon sucks. But if you believe what he says and Kellz is serious about this open competition thing, then this summer could get very interesting. And by “very interesting” I mean Michael Vick is without a doubt your starting quarterback, Dennis Dixon is your backup, and Nick Foles will probably be doing local car dealership ads in Missouri by August.
Think about what an open competition means. “Michael, Nick, Dennis: now it’s time to get an idea of how well each of you can run the read-option.” Fast forward three weeks and Nick Foles is the newest starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. An open competition where one of the top two guys lacks the skill set to compete isn’t a competition, it’s handing the keys over to Vick until Chip can find a long-term solution to put behind the wheel next year. That is, unless Dixon wins the job outright.
