Eagles | Blake to Practice Holding

According to Bob Kent, of, Philadelphia Eagles QB Jeff Blake has never acted as a holder on field goal or extra point attempts, but he is willing to learn. Currently, QB Koy Detmer serves as the team's holder. "He's going to learn how to do it," said special teams coach John Harbaugh. "He wants to do it. Our backup holder is Dirk (Johnson). Behind Dirk is Chad (Lewis). Jeff would be an emergency situation guy just like A.J. (Feeley) was. If we were in a jam, which can happen, Jeff would be prepared to do it."
