No matter the year, something always seems to happen when the Eagles are involved in "Monday Night Football. " From Howard Cosell in 1970 to Michael Vick in 2010, and so many incidents in between, the Eagles will make their 50th appearance on Monday night next week, when they host the Chicago Bears. From dog bones to the formation of Eagles Court; from the "House of Pain Game" to the "Body Bag Game"; from Donovan McNabb's scramble to the disappointment of Reggie White Night, the Daily News has gone through the archives to look back at our Top 15 Monday night games and some excerpts of how we described them back then.

ISN'T IT TIME to lay off Jeff Laurie, Joe Banner and their PR people, who have been brutally and globally pounded over the short-lived personal food ban at the new stadium? You really didn't need to read the recent AP story by Michael Rubinkam to realize that the team had created a huge public relations disaster. But what you need to know is that Lurie and his front office are getting a raw deal because their whole public information strategy never got past the five yard line. History will reveal that they've been grossly misunderstood.

For the second year, the Weightman Group is the largest advertising agency based in Philadelphia, according to rankings by the trade journal Advertising Age. Weightman's billings last year were $120 million, big enough to place it 77th in the nation. Perhaps more gratifying from the point of view of John Goodchild, Weightman's president and chief operating officer, is that billings were up 9 percent from the year before in spite of the worst advertising climate in decades. Some of the other big shops in town didn't make Ad Age's list because they are part of bigger organizations based elsewhere.

On a day that saw an NFL locker room turned into a two-ring version of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, with a little Ice Follies and "Family Feud" mixed in, Eagles head coach Rich Kotite looked into a semicircle of TV lights and said the following: "I don't believe there's a quarterback controversy brewing at all," Kotite said. "I don't believe in dangling a quarterback situation out there and that's why (he announced a decision) Tuesday. " Kotite, for the record, had 11 chances to undangle his quarterback situation at Monday's press conference and opted for the undecided route for a day. Kotite was right that there's not a QB controversy brewing.

John Russell, to be or not to be the Phillies' catcher when the night lights finally shine on the regular season, interrupted a discourse on his status the other day to offer breathless news hounds a bulletin. "This team has a lot of talent," he assured one and all with wide-eyed, Boy Scout earnestness. "If we play together, we can win. " Don't stop the presses. At that very minute, that very minuet was being played all over Florida and Arizona. This time of year, even Pirates and Mariners look around the clubhouse and are dazzled by the assembled prowess.

So it's not Wrigley Field, or Fenway Park, or Tiger Stadium, or any of the other surviving dinosaurs where they still use lawn mowers and where ballplayers traverse the same turf as their forefathers. And granted, Veterans Stadium has the charm of a shopping mall with the roof blown off, and its incessant organ orations and vacuous video shows make anyone over the age of 8 yearn for Excedrin. And sure, nobody can deny that the grand old game suffers a bit when it's played in a place devoid of links to the team's storied past - unless you count the decals affixed to the outfield fence, honoring two players (Robin Roberts and Richie Ashburn)

They are the well-equipped urban horsewomen. Carol Ludolph, a neurosurgeon, hangs a bell on her saddle and a miner's light on her helmet when riding the upper trails of the Wissahickon. On her belt, she holsters a canister of Liquid Bullets - which can immobilize up to four attackers for 15 minutes. Dogs, she explains. Jackie Simon, a hairdresser, packs a two-way radio as standard equipment in the rugged Northwest Philadelphia park. So does Sarah Erush, who has stopped taking her American saddlebred, Hank, there during the day - too dangerous, she says.

A problem was dogging Alpo Petfoods. At a time when the "treats" category of pet food was increasing, its Alpo Snaps weren't moving off the shelf, despite the company's name recognition. The problem: Serious packaging. The solution: Lighten up. "Our packaging was all wrong," said Jay Kemper, a former Alpo employee who, at the time, was the manager of the Alpo Snaps brand, a snack food for Rover. So Alpo, of Allentown, now owned by Nestle Food Co., turned to the Bailey Design Group, of Plymouth Meeting, for a packaging makeover.

The Philadelphia advertising agency that persuaded the late Lorne Greene to pitch Alpo dog food has turned to Garfield the cat to star in a costly campaign to introduce Alpo cat food. Alpo Petfoods Inc. of Allentown hopes its new products for cats, with the help of an advertising and promotional campaign by Philadelphia's Weightman Group that will cost $70 million in its first year, will grab a hefty share of the $2.3 billion-a-year cat-food business. Alpo had hoped to keep its plans for entry into the market a secret until later this year, but a pet-food distributor let the cat out of the bag for a Muncie, Ind., newspaper late last week.

Get a bunch of old, grizzled cops together and they'll usually make a lot of noise, especially if the veteran crime-fighters go by the names of Baron, Duke and King - and the subject turns to how they've been treated by the city. There was some barking, and a little whining, too, when the three retired members of the Police Department's Canine Unit - along with fellow retirees Max, Derringer and Sabbath - gathered for a news conference yesterday. The subject was the city's recent decision to cut free dog food and medical benefits that were enjoyed by the retired German shepherds.
