    How Absurd is it? Kafka to work out for Steelers tomorrow

    Report: Steelers to work out QB Kafka

    By Terry McCormick | National Football Post 57 minutes ago







    Former Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback Mike Kafka will work out for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, according to a report on ESPN's halftime show from Monday night.
    Kafka was a bit of a surprise cut this summer by the Eagles, who released him in favor of rookie Nick Foles as Michael Vick's backup.
    The Steelers are in need of a quarterback as they now turn to third-stringer and long-time backup Charlie Batch to start this week against Cleveland. Ben Roethlisberger suffered a fractured rib and separated shoulder against Kansas City.
    Then, Byron Leftwich broke two ribs in Sunday night's loss to the Baltimore Ravens, leaving Batch as the Steelers only healthy QB.

    Should just bring in Johnson who they had in Training Camp... he'd be as much use as Kafka at this point in the season, and allows the Steelers to get another look at a guy they thought was good enough for TC earlier in the year.

    Certainly not the way we expected the Steelers to wrap up the season. How lucky were we to have the best 2nd and 3rd string QBs in the NFL?... the Steelers would really be screwed without them.

    Kafka could start for Cleveland. Smart guy from Northwestern. Young.

    Trying to find some positives here.

    Well-written. I like it.

    We are in a Kafkaesque situation ...

    Jason La Canfora ‏@JasonLaCanfora:

    From what I can gather, sounds like Mike Kafka and Brian Hoyer the only 2 QBs being worked out by the Steelers Tues. They intend to sign one

    and:

    Steelers talked to Dennis Dixon but he opted top stay on Ravens practice squad.

    Hope the D can pitch a shutout every game. Like normal the season rests on the defenses shoulders.

    They'll like Kafka more than Hoyer. Kafka could be a good long term backup prospect.
