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.

Somewhere hiding beneath the hoopla surrounding the returning coach and his prodigal quarterback progeny, there was a football game on Thursday night and, to be honest, not a very good one. The Eagles fell to 1-2 for the season with three straight road games on the horizon after a 26-16 loss to the Kansas City Reids. Strip away the cheesy overhyped story line that came with Andy Reid's return to Philadelphia and Donovan McNabb having his number retired at halftime, and what was left?

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.

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.
