IT WOULD BE hard to find a nicer person in the NFL than Nate Allen. It also would be hard to find an athlete Philadelphia is angrier at right now than Nate Allen. And Philadelphia can get angry when a touted player performs poorly, the Daily News has learned. "To tell you the truth, I haven't even read anything about it. That's the first time I've heard anything like that," the Eagles' fourth-year safety said yesterday, when asked about being the public face of the NFL's 30th-ranked defense after 2 weeks.

The Eagles apparently had an opportunity to acquire San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2012, according to an ESPN report Sunday. The top two decision-makers at the time, coach Andy Reid and general manager Howie Roseman, were asked about the report this week. Neither denied it, but neither confirmed it, either. "Those questions you probably need to direct toward Howie," said Reid, who is now the Kansas City Chiefs coach. "His memory's way better than mine. I'm getting old. " When Roseman was asked about the report Monday on his weekly radio show on WIP-FM (94.1)

The veterans on the Eagles insist they are playing the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night - not Andy Reid. But there will be an adjustment when they look to the visitors sideline and see their former coach clad in red instead of black. "Seeing him in red, it just doesn't look right," wide receiver Jason Avant joked. "It will definitely be a weird thing at the beginning of the game. But once the game goes on, you've got to understand the mind-set of football players. " They worry about football, Avant insisted.

FOR MOST of his football career - high school, college and the NFL - Michael Vick has had a teacher-mischievous pupil relationship with his coaches. Picture Eddie Haskell with a rifle arm and sub-4.4 speed. And if you've never heard of Eddie Haskell, kids, Google him. Until he signed with the Eagles 4 years ago, Vick was content to get by on his extraordinary athletic skills and cut corners on all of the other stuff. During his six seasons with the Falcons, he routinely was the last to arrive at their practice facility and the first to leave.

ANDY REID was the other team's coach yesterday, a voice coming out of a speakerphone in a NovaCare conference room. Freed from the Eagles coaching tether that tied him to local reporters all those years, he actually seemed pleasant and relaxed. There was no need to intone anything about injuries or putting players in better positions or accepting responsibility. Most weeks, the opposing coach's conference call before an Eagles game gets four or five reporters who ask insidery questions about matchups and schemes.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Anybody looking at the revenge angle for Thursday's game between the Eagles and Kansas City may want to take a U-turn when approaching the locker of Chiefs linebacker Akeem Jordan. Jordan, who was with the Eagles the previous six seasons before signing with Andy Reid's Chiefs as a free agent, says he isn't interested in getting even. When asked before practice on Tuesday if Reid has extra incentive to win his first game at Lincoln Financial Field as an opposing head coach after spending the last 14 seasons with the Eagles, Jordan wasn't willing to take the bulletin-board bait.

WHEN ANDY REID coached the Eagles, he always seemed to look forward to coaching against the Packers and Brett Favre. Reid, Green Bay and Favre's quarterbacks coach before taking over the Birds in 1999, seemed to have a very good feel for what Favre and his old team wanted to do. After losing to the Packers, 6-3, in 2000 - hardly a tour de force for Favre - Reid defeated Green Bay and Favre four times in a row, including the fourth-and-26 playoff game...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - There is no doubt that Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid has not only rejuvenated a city much in need of a sports face-lift but has also done the same for himself. True to his nature, Reid continues to dodge questions about himself as he prepares for his homecoming, when his 2-0 Chiefs visit the Eagles on Thursday at Lincoln Financial Field. Asked during a conference call with local reporters on Monday about how he feels wearing the Chiefs red after coaching the green-clad Eagles the previous 14 seasons, Reid attempted humor.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Quarterback Michael Vick has gotten off to a quick start in the fast-paced Eagles offense, and his former coach and next opponent, Andy Reid, couldn't be happier. The Kansas City Chiefs coach spoke briefly about Vick during a conference call with reporters on Monday. "I am very happy for him, probably more so as a person than as a football player," Reid said. "Just the fact that he is a good father and husband, and he is a good football player, and the first two come before the football part of it, in my mind.

WE THINK we understand him. He thinks we don't. He thinks he understands us. We think he doesn't. Boiled down to its essence, this is where the relationship between Donovan McNabb and the people of Philadelphia sits a few days before he and his jersey number become officially weaved forever into our civic fabric. "I look at the relationship just like a marriage," McNabb said when the Eagles first announced they would officially retire his number during halftime of Thursday night's game against Andy Reid's Chiefs.
