"Hey coach, enough of the open competition BS. Am I going to get a chance to show my stuff against Golson or will I have to share snaps with guys like Hendrix and Zaire?"
I can't say that I blame Kiel. At quarterback playing time is paramount. Sure, Kelly can say that the best player will play. However, experience is a big part of that evaluation. It was doubtful that Kiel was going to beat out Golson. Tommy is the perfect fill-in guy. That leaves Kiel hoping for Golson to have a significant injury. That's a tough way to remain positive.
