Does this mean Casey will be a starter too?

And Kenjon Barner to form a three headed attack with Mccoy and Brown.
QB POSITION=EXPENDABLE

I really like this move. I've always liked Dixon and didn't think he got a fair crack in Pittsburgh. Glad to see Kelly being loyal and recognizing talent in his former players.

I like Dixon, but he's not a starting QB in this league.

He might make out as a decent third.

Maybe Chip and Eagles look at EJ Manuel in the draft?

Funny how people are over reacting to this signing as though he is destined to be the 2013 Starter. It's a PS acquisition that is familiar with Chip Kelly and his style of coaching. Does not in any way shape or form guarantee Dixon anything , even a spot on the 53 man roster. Most likely both Trent Edwards and Mike Vick are let go. Bringing in numbers at QB is a must. Doubt he makes much of a impact if any outside a athletic #3.

Its a decent signing.

People are just being narrow minded.

Obviously, the Oregon tie is there.

But he got the most out of Dennis Dixon and knows how to use him. I even said if he went to the right team, he could be a decent backup. He wasnt terrible with the Steelers as general, just a terrible fit for Arians system. He didnt utilized Dixon's athleticism at all and forced him to play Ben's gameplan.

However...if this tells me anything, it is that Kelly is most likely going to run an offensive system that needs a mobile QB....which likely means Foles is on the outside looking in, Vick will stay on and Kelly will look for Vick's future replacement. (This is just blind speculation based on the signing...Im not claiming thats definite)

I always thought Dennis Dixon was pretty underrated overall. He was always a pretty good passer for a player with the level of athleticism he has. Don't think he should start right away, unless he really earns it in training camp.

It would be a good signing. The only qb on our roster right now who I see being on our team next season is Foles. Expect us to draft a guy as well.

He's still the best QB Chip has produced and was on his way to an easy Heisman victory until he tore his ACL. He ran that offense to absolute perfection. If he works his butt off then I could see him challenging for the starting spot.

People are really trying to have a dig at Chip already, huh?

Dennis Dixon is CLEARLY not going to be our new answer at QB....

Of course I don't want to shoot the guy down but it's highly unlikely that he starts the season as our #1 guy.

I like the acquisition as a back-up, I love it infact. There's a massive difference between being a successful back-up and being the poster boy for a huge franchise who everyone relies on.

like what ?


Foles survived all year running for his life behind that offensive line with those tiny wide receivers.. dudes tough and underrated athlete.. i dont know how his health is going to be compromised on a better team by signing Dixon to back him up . Rolling Eyes
