Bill Belichick has known Chip Kelly since Kelly coached at New Hampshire, but the two are coaching against each other for the first time this week. Belichick said they have "been friends for a while" and praised Kelly's program at Oregon. But Kelly's offense at Oregon is different from the one he's expected to show in Philadelphia, and Belichick had his first exposure to the Eagles system on Tuesday. The two teams practice with each other again on Wednesday and play in the preseason opener on Friday.

The Patriots are coming, and the Eagles are happy they'll have several days of reprieve from hitting each other. "To have competition against the best is always a good thing when you bring guys in," Eagles linebacker Brandon Graham said. "I'm just looking forward to a change-up, seeing some different people. Trying to pick up [Patriots quarterback] Tom Brady - it'll be fun just to see really where I am because they do a lot of different things. " New England arrived Monday night in Philadelphia and will spend the next four days here.

A grim-faced coach Bill Belichick said in Foxborough, Mass., on Wednesday that the New England Patriots will learn from the "terrible experience" of Aaron Hernandez's arrest on a murder charge and work to improve their player evaluation process. Speaking publicly for the first time since the then-Patriots tight end was arrested four weeks earlier, Belichick, who opened his 22-minute news conference by speaking from prepared notes, said he was "shocked and disappointed" to learn of the criminal investigation while he was out of the country.

IF NEW ENGLAND coach Bill Belichick really hates the way Tim Tebow plays, he has a funny way of showing it. The Patriots reportedly are signing the former Jets and Broncos quarterback to a contract and expect him in minicamp today. ESPN.com and NFL.com, citing league sources, reported the news yesterday, the same day the Patriots announced they had released backup quarterback Mike Kafka. The websites reported Tebow was being brought in to play quarterback. CBSSports.com, however, citing a source, reported that he will play tight end. Tom Brady is, of course, the starting QB. His backup is Ryan Mallett.

ONE OBLIGATION as head coach at the University of Oregon used to be a big weekly midweek luncheon attended by some of the football program's most ardent alumni and supporters. It required a trip of about 1 1/2 hours each way, some handshakes, a little speech, a brief Q-and-A. I say used to be, because Chip Kelly put an end to it during his tenure there. Instead, he attended the luncheon via videophone, gaining 3 hours of planning, film viewing. What he didn't gain was any goodwill from those ardent supporters, but if we have learned anything about the man thus far, it is that Chip Kelly is not too keen on Dale Carnegie.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - To hear Bill Belichick glumly address reporters on Monday, you'd think the Houston Texans blew New England out in the regular season - and not the other way around. "There were several things in that game that went our way, but I don't think that's really that significant at this point," the Patriots coach said in a conference call. "I don't think you can overanalyze that game. " The Patriots beat the Texans, 42-14, on Dec. 10, when Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes.

PATRIOTS linebacker Brandon Spikes isn't hiding his disdain for the NFL's replacement refs. After Sunday night's 31-30 loss to the Ravens - which featured 24 accepted penalties, including a league-record 13 that resulted in first downs - Spikes took to Twitter to blast the men in the striped shirts, writing: "Can someone please tell these [bleeping] zebras Footlocker called and they're needed Back at work!!!!" No word on whether the NFL will take action against Spikes, but the league is reviewing tape that shows his coach, Bill Belichick, physically grabbing a referee after the game to try to ask if the game-winning field goal by Justin Tucker - which narrowly went through the uprights as time expired - had been reviewed.

INDIANAPOLIS - Bill Belichick gave clear instructions to his defensive unit: Let the runner score. Playing the odds and inviting critics, the calculating coach of the New England Patriots told his players to get out of the way, open a wide path for Ahmad Bradshaw and give Tom Brady a chance to win the Super Bowl in the final 57 seconds. Unusual? Certainly. Crazy? Not at all. The strategy failed, and the New York Giants won, 21-17, on Sunday night. But Belichick was certain it gave the Patriots their best opportunity.

NEW ENGLAND Patriots coach Bill Belichick confirmed that Josh McDaniels will be the team's offensive coordinator next season. McDaniels was brought in during the playoffs to serve as an offensive assistant. He was widely seen as the heir to offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien, who had been hired to replace Joe Paterno at Penn State. But it wasn't official until Belichick confirmed the move yesterday, a day after the Patriots lost to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, 21-17.

INDIANAPOLIS - Tom Brady's two long incompletions in the final minutes, and several missed chances throughout the game cost the New England Patriots a chance at another Super Bowl victory. It also resulted in their second loss to the New York Giants in the big game in five seasons, 21-17, last night. "We just came up a little bit short," Brady said. "There were some missed opportunities out there. It was a very hard-fought game. We fought 'til the end. I'm very proud of that.
