It isn’t Mayweather vs. Pacquio. Heck, it isn’t even Kramer vs. Kramer. But the camp battle between backup QBs Mike Kafka and the newly signed Trent Edwards could end up being one of the team’s most significant storylines next season.
Let’s start with what we know: Michael Vick will be running the offense next year. And boy, does Vick like to run. He’ss very good at it, but he also takes a ton of hits and is about as durable as Brian Westbrook . And as Eagle Nation learned in 2005 (and again last season) having a solid backup is a must.

No one is saddened that the Vince Young Era in Philadelphia has ended but the Eagles QB position has been a bit of a Merry Go Round after a decade of stability. Less than a year ago the news was that Vince Young was headed into town to replace Kevin Kolb as the Eagles backup QB. Kolb had once been the starter supplanting the departed Donovan McNabb but was sidelined with a concussion...
