There was that sickening loss at home to the Denver Broncos in Week 2, when the Kansas City Chiefs gave up two touchdowns in the final 36 seconds. And there was that devastating home defeat to Chicago in Week 5, when the Bears scored twice in the final 3 minutes, 5 seconds to erase a 17-6 deficit. You know exactly what they were saying on the street corners of South Philadelphia, the taverns in the Pennsylvania suburbs, and the coffee houses in South Jersey: Same old Andy Reid.

Bruce Arians went to Chicago to interview with the Bears for their head coaching vacancy in 2013 thinking that he had the job. The Eagles apparently thought so, too. The Eagles, Browns, and Chargers canceled interviews with the then-Colts offensive coordinator when he visited Chicago first, Arians said Wednesday. The Bears filed the necessary paperwork first and therefore had dibs. Asked why those three teams canceled - all on the same day - Arians said, "I never got an answer other than, 'Thanks but no thanks.' " Arians, of course, didn't get the Bears job. It went to Marc Trestman instead.

EAGLES (-5) over Saints Is Drew Brees with half a shoulder better than Sam Bradford with a good shoulder? Hmmmm . . . Good question. Everyone in the Superdome - and everyone on the Dallas defense - knew that Brees couldn't throw it farther than my 7-year-old granddaughter last Sunday. Yet he still was masterful, hitting on 33 of 41 passes for 359 yards. Bradford, with the good shoulder, was 15-for-28 and 270 yards. The edge goes to Brees, but Bradford didn't make any mistakes (three touchdowns, no interceptions)

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Todd Bowles was on his way out of Philadelphia when Chip Kelly arrived in January 2013 to coach the Eagles. Kelly said the two met "for a while" shortly after Kelly's hiring. They had a good talk, Bowles said. Bowles, who spent part of the previous season as the Eagles defensive coordinator, already made up his mind. He was heading to Arizona to work in the same capacity with the Cardinals. Kelly's search for a coordinator would go elsewhere. The two men will meet as head coaches on Sunday when the Eagles travel to MetLife Stadium to face the Jets.

Brandon Graham spent his first several months with the Eagles unsure of what his boss thought of him. Andy Reid had selected him in the first round - a strong indication that he liked him enough to draft him - but Graham said it was difficult to get a read on the coach during practice. "Andy just liked to watch. You could see his eyes watching you and you didn't know what he's thinking," Graham said as he jokingly imitated Reid's glare. "But he observed everything. " And he let you know when he wasn't happy with you. It didn't take long before Graham was called into Reid's office.

BRETT FAVRE was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame Saturday night. While giving his speech, Favre recalled a time when then-Packers assistant Andy Reid had a problem with another staffer during a game. "So Andy gets his cord caught and he looks back, and it's this heavy-set guy who's standing on his cord," Favre said. "And Andy says to him, 'Hey! Get off the cord, you fat ass!' "This is one of our guys, now. He looks at Andy and says, 'Who are you calling a fat ass?' " The best part is that Reid, who was in attendance, laughed as hard as everyone else.

A former Eagles running back was asked Wednesday about his old team. He had left the Eagles a while ago, and he was bitter at the time of the departure, and probably had been bitter for a long time before then, too. Now he was fielding questions from reporters, but he didn't particularly want to answer the questions, because he didn't particularly want to talk about LeSean McCoy. "Our situations," Duce Staley said, "are totally different. " It's coming up on 12 years since Staley, who's been the Eagles' running backs coach since Chip Kelly took over as head coach in 2013, was himself at the center of offseason controversy.

PHOENIX - Almost three months after Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie empowered Chip Kelly with final say over football decisions and stripped Howie Roseman of personnel responsibilities, he explained that the change was made because of Kelly's vision of how the team should be built. Lurie suggested Tuesday that the decision was less about Roseman's evaluation skills than it was about maximizing Kelly's. It became clear after Lurie's 40-minute interview that the arranged marriage of Kelly and Roseman would not work because the coach wanted to pick his own personnel executive.
