Michael Vick spent a good bit of his Monday morning cleaning out his locker at the NovaCare Complex, filling a large gray garbage bag with personal items, autographing gloves and sneakers so they could be donated to charity. The whole process had an air of finality that even Vick himself couldn't help but recognize. He is a free agent. He wants to be an NFL starting quarterback again. That will not happen here, not with Nick Foles around, and Vick knows it. "It's hard to sum up my time here," he said.

Eagles fans know how an Andy Reid news conference goes after a loss - especially a complete and utter disaster, such as the Kansas City Chiefs' blowing a 28-point lead to fall, 45-44, to the Indianapolis Colts in a wild-card game on Saturday. Ahem. It's on him. He has to do a better job of putting his players in better position to win. Time's yours. This painful loss, though, brought in a new wrinkle - stunned silence. "Sometimes the game speaks for itself, so you don't have to say a whole lot," he told reporters during their time on Saturday.

During his day-after news conference Monday, Chip Kelly quoted Winston Churchill: "Problems in victory are more agreeable than problems in defeat, but no less difficult. " Kelly was talking about the way his coaches and players reviewed film, particularly the film from those games they win - such as Sunday's. The Eagles scored four fourth-quarter touchdowns and routed the Detroit Lions, 34-20, and have won five straight games now, and Kelly was making an important point: A team must be as meticulous about correcting its in-game mistakes after it wins as it is after it loses.

One day during the 2012 offseason, Marty Mornhinweg turned on the college tape of Nick Foles and liked what he saw. So he walked down the second floor corridor at the NovaCare Complex and into Andy Reid's office. "I said, 'Have you seen this Foles kid?'" Mornhinweg said recently to The Inquirer. "So he watches him, likes what he's watching and says, 'Where's Doug?'" Doug Pederson, the Eagles quarterback coach, was on the road. He was working out other quarterbacks and by coincidence was scheduled next to be in Phoenix to visit Brock Osweiler, the 6-foot-7 Arizona State quarterback.

It happened only once during Andy Reid's 14 seasons in Philadelphia and never for an entire season. For a fleeting moment during the Eagles' 2004 run to the Super Bowl, we saw what the combination of size and speed could do at the wide receiver position. Mega-diva that he was, nobody in the game could match Terrell Owens' talent at that time. He probably would own Mike Quick's single-season team record for receiving yards had it not been for a horse-collar tackle (legal at the time) by Dallas safety Roy Williams that fractured the receiver's right leg in Week 14. We offer this reminder now because the No. 1 receiver in the NFL is coming to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday when the Eagles play the Detroit Lions in a huge game between 7-5 teams that sit atop their respective divisions.

KANSAS CITY - Andy Reid ambles across the practice fields, a red-jacketed Santa figure with a sandy, whitening mustache, ruddy and jolly, a mischievous twinkle in his clear blue eyes. On this cloudless afternoon, icicles dangle from the speed-limit signs on nearby Interstate 70. The wind chill makes it feel like it's 15 degrees, but anywhere south of 40 degrees Reid's 55-year-old arthritic knee hurt like hell, anyway. "Ah," he said, dismissively. "It's cold. " He shrugged.

'WE'RE not trying to rebuild," Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said recently. "We're trying to retool. " He should rethink that. Soon. Because as tough as it was to watch the Eagles play Sunday, the most alarming aspect was the lack of progress this team, whose most recent players Roseman has chosen and touted, has shown since the season began. The defense plays as if Juan Castillo were still the coordinator. The offense's self-sabotage hearkens to the final years of Andy Reid's regime.

THE MAIN THING I took from those recent reports about the Eagles and Andy Reid trying to trade for Colin Kaepernick or Alex Smith over the previous few years was this: Reid wanted to upgrade from Michael Vick. So despite all the flowery sentiments flowing back and forth between Reid and Vick in the last week, I'm guessing Andy wasn't shocked Thursday to see Vick throw two killer interceptions, fumble the ball away late and get a couple more passes swatted by defensive linemen, one of them ruled an interception but overturned on review.

It was difficult to tell if it was Andy Reid or the Eagles who put the Kansas City Chiefs in a better position to win the coach's homecoming game at Lincoln Financial Field because the only thing Michael Vick and the home team did rapidly Thursday night was give the football away. All that mattered, of course, was that the night belonged to Reid and the Chiefs. The coach who won a lot of games but never the biggest one returned to the place he worked for 14 years and schooled Chip Kelly and the Eagles, leaving the Linc with a 26-16 win and a 3-0 record.

The Eagles honored Andy Reid on his return to Philadelphia on Thursday night by replicating the errors that caused Reid's dismissal after last season. Their sloppy play was highlighted by foolish turnovers and an underachieving offense, and that allowed Reid to walk off a winner in the Eagles' 26-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. "It sounds like a broken record, year after year," wide receiver Jason Avant said. "Especially because this has been the story the last three years.
