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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...
