Eagles | Team confident in D. Johnson's holding abilities

Philadelphia Eagles special teams coordinator John Harbaugh believes P Dirk Johnson has done a great job as a holder for PK David Akers. Johnson could be in the mix as the starting holder along with QB Koy Detmer. Harbaugh said, "We feel like we have two holders that are starting holders. Dirk has done great and [P] Reggie Hodges has done a nice job as well. But, Dirk would be the starting holder, if not [QB] Koy [Detmer]. But, Koy is the best holder. Koy might be the best holder in the NFL. He does all of the little subtle things that you never see that make a big difference. But, by the same token Dirk is a heck of a holder too, so we've got confidence in both guys and whatever way it goes, it goes."
