Mike Kafka Takes All The First Team RepsBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Wednesday, September 21st, 2011
I remember all the days and hours during the lockout that Eagles second-year backup quarterback Mike Kafka spend on the field at Evesham Township throwing balls to Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and whomever was willing to run routes and catch the football.
It proved to be worth it the other night when he stepped into the game like a season veteran. He may get the chance to show his skills again this week against the New York Giants.
Kafka took all of the first team reps according to sources close to the football team.
Vince Young worked out and did the quarterback drills as well but it was Kafka who worked with the first team offense as they starting practicing for their big game against the Giants. Young seems to be still nursing the hamstring and I don’t think he can run a full speed yet.
They allow the media to look at the first ten minutes of practice, so we got the chance to see them go through the individual drills. At the beginning of practice, Vick was wearing his baseball hat with his sweatsuit, as he tossed the football in his hands while standing on the side looking at the action.
I still think that Vick could be the guy behind center when the Eagles start the game on Sunday afternoon.
Three players missed practice: DE Juqua Parker (ankle), DE Darryl Tapp (pectoral), QB Michael Vick (concussion)
