Michael Vick made the jump to actually becoming a starting quarterback. With Atlanta, if the first option was not there for Vick, he automatically tried to gain yards with his legs. In Philadelphia, Vick finally learned to look at his second and third options.
Vick made the correct decisions on most plays and was particularly effective throwing on the run.
Vick will continue to improve as he will go into the season guaranteed the starter unlike last year, when he had to practice with the second teamers in training camp.
He is currently a top 10 quarterback in the league, but I would not be surprised if people start to call him an elite QB.
Backing up Vick could be Kevin Kolb. Kolb though is expected to be traded.
Even if trades are not allowed before the draft, it has been reported that the Eagles would be willing to trade him for 2012 picks. In this situation, the Eagles could acquire even more picks.
If Kolb does remain in Philadelphia, he would be the best backups in all of football. He may not have the strongest arm, but he is accurate and was a good decision maker in the pocket. Though he does not have Michael Vick elusiveness, Kolb showed he was a pretty mobile quarterback. With great weapons surrounding him, Kolb could be a top quarterback.
If Kolb is traded, the Eagles would have Mike Kafka as backup.
Kafka will be only 24 years old at the start of next season and will enter his second year in the NFL.
He was drafted in the fourth round of 2010 NFL draft. A few draft experts, including Mel Kiper Jr., rated Kafka as the fifth best quarterback in last year's class.
In the preseason with the Eagles, Kafka struggled, though. Only in the Chiefs game did Kafka show his smart, savvy quarterbacking skills. In that game, he had 115.2 passer rating and threw for a touchdown.
In a poll I conducted a month ago, I asked Eagle fans if Kafka was ready to become backup to Vick. Out of the 406 votes, 51% voted yes.
