Maybe the Eagles can trade Mike Kafka

Name the guys who played QB since '5' left.
Former Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb could be in some trouble at Arizona, judging by reports there.

Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly said Kolb looked scared in their preseason game. No one should be surprised when John Skelton emerges from the quarterback competition as the starter.

And no one should be surprised if the Eagles move another backup quarterback in Mike Kafka.

The Eagles shipped Kolb to the Cardinals for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round draft pick used to move up to land rookie first-round pick Fletcher Cox.

Kolb had moments but was never the same after sustaining a concussion in the first half of his first game as the guy. The Eagles knew Kolb couldn't play fast enough to be their starter.

Kafka's moment came when he rallied the Eagles within striking distance of a score on the road against the Atlanta Falcons. Though the Eagles profess their confidence in Kafka, they're anything  but married to the tall, mobile, rangy passer. Especially with rookie Nick Foles making big strides.

By the way, Kolb, Kafka, Michael Vick and Vince Young have played quarterback since Donovan McNabb was traded. Foles will be the fifth.
