The Eagles were already uncertain about their kicking situation before Thursday's preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. There is even more concern after Alex Henery missed a 31-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, bruising his tenuous grip on the kicker spot. "I've got to be better," Henery said minutes after the home game. "It will probably ruin my night, but I'll wake up tomorrow ready to go, and get those [bad kicks] out of there, and get myself ready for the next one. " It's reasonable to wonder how many next ones Henery will get. He made a 36-yard field goal in the second quarter, plus three regular extra points, and he connected on nine 33-yard extra points in the previous two preseason games.

I SEE BOTH offenses having trouble - the Eagles' reworked offensive line, on the road, in a dome, against an excellent defense that won the same matchup last season, and Arizona's Kevin Kolb, behind what might be an even more unimpressive offensive line, pressured by waves of attacking Eagles. The Cards' knack for blocking kicks and punts certainly could make the difference, especially if you're not that sold on the clutchness of Alex Henery or Chas Henry. But maybe the way to look at this is, which team can you really most easily envision being 3-0 Monday?

Up-Down Drill   Nick Foles The kid can play. Can he be next year's starter? The fact that Foles has gotten better with each of his four starts suggests that he could be. It should be noted that the Buccaneers entered the game with the worst passing defense in the league. But Foles should enjoy his first NFL victory.   Damaris Johnson For all his skill, Johnson is starting to make the coaches wonder if he can be placed in a big spot. The rookie muffed his second punt of the season, and this one rejuvenated the dormant Bucs when they followed the turnover with seven points.

IN 1998, the Eagles were 3-13 and placed nobody on the NFC Pro Bowl team. Fifteen seasons later, for only the third time since the postseason accolades began in 1951, the Eagles have been shut out again. The Birds were among eight NFL teams with no selections announced last night at the conclusion of a mysterious process that currently involves players, fans and coaches. There is an extremely slim chance the 2012 Eagles will not stay shut out, when all is said and done. A source close to the situation said left guard Evan Mathis is a third alternate for the NFC team.

"You ARE the weakest link!" that shrill British femcee sniped at cowering quiz-show contestants a decade ago. Now that the Eagles are major losers, too, maybe it's time to ask: Who's the weakest link on this club? We want your votes. Today and Wednesday, we'll tally your picks on the accompanying poll. Thursday, we'll narrow it to a Top 5, and on Friday, announce The Eagles' Weakest Link. Please leave comments below that could be quoted in each followup. Note that we skipped the obvious potshots at head coach Andy "I take full responsibility" Reid and owner Jeffrey Lurie, who hasn't played a down.

MANY observers thought Mat McBriar won the Eagles' punting battle in training camp, and were surprised when the Birds went with incumbent Chas Henry. Special-teams coordinator Bobby April later indicated the decision came down to who was a better holder for Alex Henery. But holding on kicks, it turns out, is not the most important factor in punting, and on Tuesday, the Eagles announced they had released Henry and brought back McBriar. The team also signed long snapper Kyle Nelson to the practice squad, so he can get some work with McBriar and Henery this week.

RUSHING OFFENSE: Take out Michael Vick's 25 yards on five tuck-and-runs and the Eagles averaged just 3.9 yards per carry against a defense that had given up 702 rushing yards in the previous four games. LeSean McCoy again did more damage as a receiver than a ball carrier. Grade: C PASSING OFFENSE: A rusty Michael Vick completed just 19 of 35 passes and averaged 5.6 yards per attempt.

IT KIND of got lost in the shuffle Sunday, there was so much else to dissect, but Alex Henery missed a 45-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. This was the fourth game in a row with a field-goal miss, the first one that counted, the previous three coming in the preseason. Still, a disturbing trend for a kicker who was 24-for-27 as a rookie, who had hit 17 regular-season field goals in a row going into Sunday. There didn't seem to be anything wrong with the snap (has there ever been anything wrong with a Jon Dorenbos snap?

Eagles kicker Alex Henery received a vote of confidence from coach Chip Kelly one day after missing a field goal for the third straight game. "I do have confidence in him," Kelly said Monday. "I know [special teams coordinator Davie] Fipp has confidence in him. I think he's a real accurate kicker. But from a kicking standpoint, I'm pretty confident in him. " All three of Henery's misses were from 40 to 49 yards. He was 15 of 16 during his first two seasons from that range and is 2 for 5 this season.

The difference in the Eagles' kicking game between last summer and this one showed by the way Eagles coach Chip Kelly reacted to a poor performance. Alex Henery's first field-goal attempt of the 2014 preseason sailed wide right from 47 yards away, and Kelly had little patience for his kicker. One week later, the team traded for a rookie named Cody Parkey. Parkey won the job and made the Pro Bowl in his first season. But his 2015 preseason opener included a missed extra point from 33 yards away and a 34-yard field-goal try that hooked right.

DAVE FIPP is very wary of discussing the extraordinary success of his special teams this season. "In our part of the game, things can go your way or the other so quickly," the Eagles' special-teams coordinator said. "You have to be ultra-focused. Our focus is on the next play and the next game. "The last couple of games, our special-teams units have played really, really well. But as the season goes along, we have to continue to do that. It's going to be a big part of this team.

Two days after the Eagles were knocked out of the playoffs, Chip Kelly was asked how much emphasis he would place on the loss to the Saints against the season as a whole when making changes in the offseason. "I think that's a mistake. I think you have to look at everything," Kelly said then. "I've always done it that way. It has to be the totality of the season. " But what happens when a postseason loss magnifies season-long issues and, in certain cases, reveals flaws that would keep an ascending team from cracking into the NFC's top tier and beating teams like the Seahawks, 49ers, Packers and Saints in the postseason?

THE QUESTION lingers: Since the Eagles were in on kicker Cody Parkey during the draft process, and Parkey was available to be signed by anybody after he went undrafted, how did they end up bringing Carey Spear in to try to compete with a fading Alex Henery? "It's a good question. I ask myself that," Eagles special-teams coordinator Dave Fipp said yesterday. "We looked at both of those guys. In their individual workouts, Carey had just a little bit better day on the one day I worked him out in person.

Cody Parkey's 54-yard field goal last Thursday was a hint that a change could come at kicker for the Eagles. When Parkey followed with a 53-yard field goal one quarter later, it seemed all but inevitable that Parkey would supplant Alex Henery. Coach Chip Kelly would not say it after the game, but the Eagles saw enough from Parkey to convince them that the rookie should open the season as the team's kicker. The Eagles cut Henery on Saturday, one of the 22 transactions the team made to trim the roster to the league-mandated 53 players.

Alex Henery thought he was going to kick, and then he wasn't. It was his turn in the field-goal rotation with competitor Cody Parkey, and the Eagles were about to attempt a 53-yarder Thursday night. But as Henery, with helmet on, prepared to walk onto the field, special-teams coach Dave Fipp held him back. Parkey ran past both onto the field and stroked a kick that sailed through the uprights for his second 50-yard-plus field goal in the Eagles' preseason finale win over the New York Jets at Lincoln Financial Field.

Matt Barkley did not create a backup quarterback controversy in his first start in an Eagles uniform. But if the 37-7 win over the New York Jets in the preseason finale Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field was an opportunity for the Eagles to measure the progress of the 2013 fourth-round pick, they can be encouraged by his improvement. The Eagles sat almost every starter and a few top reserves, leaving the game mostly for determining the final spots on the 53-man roster before it must be set Saturday at 4 p.m. "[Friday]

AN INVISIBLE barrier seemed to descend around Alex Henery as the second half wore on. The bench area can be a crowded place, with NFL rosters still at 75 until tomorrow's cutdown to 53. Yet, Henery paced back and forth in a black Eagles baseball cap, several feet of space on each side of him. The Eagles tried three field goals in last night's 37-7 preseason-ending victory over the visiting New York Jets. Rookie Cody Parkey, acquired last week from Indianapolis, attempted and made all three - from 54, 25 and 53 yards.

THIS HAS BEEN Alex Henery's best NFL training camp, Henery said this week, except for the part about missing two of three field goals he has tried in preseason games. "That's probably the most frustrating part, is that I'm hitting good balls in practice. It's just those two that popped up in the games. Those aren't the ones I'm happy about," Henery said. So it is, despite strong work in practice, Henery fights for his job this week, against just-acquired rookie Cody Parkey, and any other kicker who might get cut. "My first training camp here [2011]

Lacking a true position battle for months, the Eagles have less than a week to figure out whether they have a kicker on their roster or if they will have to look elsewhere to fill a thankless position that teams sometimes overlook until it's too late. A series of decisions that stretches back to drafting Alex Henery has the Eagles crossing their fingers that he will find his nerve, or Cody Parkey will be the exception to the rule about rookie kickers, or some better option will drop into their laps.
