WHEN THEIR relationship finished its tedious dissolve last January, Andy Reid and the Eagles' brass both spoke of a fresh start. Three games into their first season apart, Andy Reid has his. With yet another workmanlike victory last night, his Kansas City Chiefs have won their first three games this season, already eclipsing the total that gave them the first draft pick last April. Meanwhile, after their first three games, the Eagles and their fans seem just as far from a fresh start as they did when Big Red was finally cut loose after 14 promising and trying seasons.

WITH BIG RED and No. 5 making an appearance at the Linc tonight, it's only fair to bring up the best decision of the Andy Reid era, drafting Donovan McNabb with the second pick in 1999. Of course, the booing of the choice up in New York has been played up just as much as those damn snowballs we tossed at Santa Claus, but history and stats tell us that Reid and the Eagles made the best pick. McNabb went on to win 98 regular-season games, reached five NFC Championships, a Super Bowl and was selected to six Pro Bowls.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Nobody is identified with Kansas City football or bleeds Chiefs red more than Len Dawson. The Hall of Fame quarterback played 13 seasons with the Chiefs until the age of 40. Now 78, he is still the radio color analyst for the Chiefs and also does some local TV work. And Dawson, like so many around the Kansas City area, is enjoying the early success of a Chiefs team that is 2-0 after a 2-14 season. The Chiefs look to surpass last season's win total with Thursday's highly anticipated matchup at Lincoln Financial Field with the Eagles.

The hurry-up portion of the Eagles season concludes Thursday night in Lincoln Financial Field, and the third game in 11 days carries with it a story line that is quite obviously made for television. The prime-time schedule ends here for the Eagles, with the networks having wrung them dry and discarded them after the first three games. The Monday Night Football opener, teasing the general public with its first look at Chip Kelly's wacko-neato offense and with the ballyhooed comeback of Robert Griffin III, was a natural, of course.

TURNED OUT, feting Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb wasn't the really awkward, painful part of the night, after all. Reid and the now-3-0 Kansas City Chiefs visited the Eagles, and Michael Vick was so overcome by nostalgia, he performed like the guy who spent much of last season's stretch drive watching Nick Foles play quarterback. Vick threw a pair of interceptions, including one for a pick-six, and looked out of sync most of the night, completing only 13 of 30 passes for 201 yards in a 26-16 loss.

The debate in Philadelphia about Michael Vick now is whether he should block after handoffs. The polarizing arguments center on whether he can stay healthy for a full season. The controversy that involves his head coach is whether he should call a timeout to reinsert Vick into a game. This is Vick's career in 2013. It has evolved into this because of the decision Andy Reid made in August 2009. Reid rescued Vick from NFL exile and gave him a lifeboat after two years away from the game and 19 months in federal prison.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Andy Reid is sorry he won't get to see Donovan McNabb have his jersey retired on Thursday, but he's glad he'll be in the building. McNabb's jersey will be retired by the Eagles at halftime of Thursday's game with the Kansas City Chiefs at Lincoln Financial Field. By halftime, Reid will be a little busy working on second-half adjustments as Chiefs coach. "I love Donovan McNabb," Reid said before Tuesday's practice at the Chiefs facility. "I think he's a great person and a great football player.

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)

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.
