KANSAS CITY, Mo. - There is no doubt that Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid has not only rejuvenated a city much in need of a sports face-lift but has also done the same for himself. True to his nature, Reid continues to dodge questions about himself as he prepares for his homecoming, when his 2-0 Chiefs visit the Eagles on Thursday at Lincoln Financial Field. Asked during a conference call with local reporters on Monday about how he feels wearing the Chiefs red after coaching the green-clad Eagles the previous 14 seasons, Reid attempted humor.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Quarterback Michael Vick has gotten off to a quick start in the fast-paced Eagles offense, and his former coach and next opponent, Andy Reid, couldn't be happier. The Kansas City Chiefs coach spoke briefly about Vick during a conference call with reporters on Monday. "I am very happy for him, probably more so as a person than as a football player," Reid said. "Just the fact that he is a good father and husband, and he is a good football player, and the first two come before the football part of it, in my mind.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Like his new coach and offensive coordinator, Alex Smith is enjoying an early resurgence with the Kansas City Chiefs. Smith and the 2-0 Chiefs will visit the Eagles on Thursday night. Last season, the quarterback suffered a concussion and never regained his starting job with the San Francisco 49ers. With a fresh start after a trade to Kansas City, Smith has thrived under coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Doug Pederson. Smith said that Reid and San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh have aided his development.

WE THINK we understand him. He thinks we don't. He thinks he understands us. We think he doesn't. Boiled down to its essence, this is where the relationship between Donovan McNabb and the people of Philadelphia sits a few days before he and his jersey number become officially weaved forever into our civic fabric. "I look at the relationship just like a marriage," McNabb said when the Eagles first announced they would officially retire his number during halftime of Thursday night's game against Andy Reid's Chiefs.

KANSAS CITY - Andy Reid had just finished matching his new team's win total of a year ago when he was asked about his old squad. Shortly after Sunday's 17-16 win over the visiting Dallas Cowboys at energy-filled Arrowhead Stadium, Reid was asked by the only Philadelphia reporter in attendance whether it would be emotional when the Chiefs visit Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday to face an Eagles team that he coached the previous 14 years....

YOU CAN TALK fast when you're telling the truth. Chip Kelly talks fast. When you do not lie and you do not spin, the words just roll off the tongue. Even before his NFL debut Monday night, Kelly offered glimpses of his candor. Afterward, and the next day, the Eagles coach delivered two football news conference the likes of which Philadelphia had not seen since before Andy Reid's awkward introduction in 1999. Kelly was honest. Concise. Guileless. This might change.

I'VE HAD A fair number of people ask me if I agree that Michael Vick should be starting for the Eagles tonight, when the Chip Kelly era begins at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. I always answer the question the same way: Vick clearly won the training-camp quarterbacking competition with Nick Foles. But my real answer is, I dunno. Despite all the talk about how Vick might turn around his fading fortunes in Kelly's offense, I still see this: New coach. Rebuilding mode, team that didn't draft well for several years.

IN A NORMAL NFL regular-season work week, you get Tuesday off. Monday, the day after the game, is for injury treatment, maybe watching film of the previous day's game. Tuesday, you recharge at home. Wednesday, you start getting ready for the next opponent. Ah, but Chip Kelly does not blindly follow tradition. So the Eagles will practice regularly on Tuesdays this fall, quite possibly making them the only NFL team to do so. They also will do something at least slightly more spirited than the typical NFL walk-through on Saturday.

UPDATE: Eagles coach Chip Kelly on Tuesday morning named Michael Vick the team's regular-season starter.  Kelly said his decision , reached in a staff meeting yesterday, ended a thorough evaluation process. "I met with all the quarterbacks this morning. They all understand the plan and know where we are going forward," Kelly said. He said Foles, the second-year QB from Arizona, was "outstanding" when the news was conveyed. --- AFTER MICHAEL Vick's rousing performance in last Thursday's preseason win over Carolina, Vick credited new Eagles coach Chip Kelly with rekindling Vick's love for football.

THROUGH TWO preseason games, Michael Vick and Nick Foles have completed a combined 82.8 percent of their pass attempts. That's not a typo. Eighty-two point eight. Competition clearly has brought out the best in both of them, and so has Chip Kelly's offense, which among other things offers Eagles receivers route-option freedom they never had in Andy Reid's West Coast offense. The difference between being a receiver in the West Coast and being a receiver in Kelly's offense is the difference between having to strictly adhere to driving directions regardless of traffic congestion and being able to use an alternate route.
