- Mike Kafka told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he's ready to "take that next step" and become the Eagles' official backup. Of course, that presumes that Kevin Kolb is traded. Fortunately, Andy Reid's got his back too. I know that Reid's really good at developing quarterbacks and all, but going from Kolb backing up Vick to Kafka backing up Vick is a significantly different proposition.
- Jason Snelling isn't exactly towing the company line when it comes to discussing DeMaurice Smith, and he sounds pretty worried about the future of the NFL.
- Torry Holt says he hasn't retired yet and is hoping to make a comeback in 2011. Guess it's as good a year as any to be a free agent.
- Is it legal for the younger brother of an NFL offensive coordinator to teach that OC's new quarterback the offense? I mean, it's not, right?
- Scott Fujita of the Browns appeared on PFT Live Wednesday and explained why it's tough to trust the owners.
- Chad Henne knows that he has to cut down on the "boneheaded turnovers" during games. Good call, bro.
- Shortened season might equal expanded rosters. This makes too much sense not to happen.
