Dixon is probably better than Vick at this point in time and Kelly knows him , and likes him. He could very well end up with at least a temporary starting gig in Philly. Just hope he still has his legs because with that O line, he'll need them. I do believe that Foles is their future though. At least if they have any sense.

Good luck to him. I'm glad he could come in here and play a version on the pistol/option offense for us. I'm sure he's one of the unsung heroes of this season.

Good luck to Dixon ... I bet he was invaluable on the practice squad to get our guys ready for RGIII and CK. Hope he does well.

A little off-topic ... do they even have Editors or at least Proof Readers at the Sun anymore? One, it's Nick Foles and not Nick Folk (isn't he a kicker on the Jets?). And then, "Comfortable with Tyrod Taylor as their primarily backup to Joe Flacco ..." Primarily backup?

At some point Dixon will be the starter of the Eagles. I can see it now... Foles to KC in a trade, Vick gets hurt in the pre-season and Dixon becomes the week 1 starter for the Eagles.

Same. I wanted Dixon as back-up & to trade Tyrod. Dixon has starting experience & IMO is a better pistol-option QB for preparation for these new breeds. Regardless, I think Tyrod will be good. I just liked Dixon better TBH.

I think Dixon will also start. He has a really good chance and that's all he can hope to have. Eagles should trade Foles. He doesn't fit their system at all.
