Brent Celek's statistical production has declined since Chip Kelly became the Eagles coach, but the man who is most pleased with Celek seems to be Kelly. There is no player Kelly speaks about with more reverence than Celek. "When you talk about what a Philadelphia Eagle looks like," Kelly said, "Brent Celek is what a Philadelphia Eagle looks like. " Kelly called Celek "everything you want," elaborating that he is the "ultimate" professional who is "totally selfless. " From Kelly, there are few better compliments.

Here are some observations and ruminations about the Eagles-Steelers game:   PITTSBURGH - Tight end Brent Celek caught a clutch, 2-yard touchdown pass to put the Eagles ahead in the fourth quarter. Earlier in the game, however, with their offensive line battered and facing a blitz-happy Steelers defense, the Eagles had to keep Celek in to block. Celek provided a lot of help for left tackle Demetress Bell against linebacker James Harrison. But with Celek staying in, Michael Vick didn't have his second-leading receiver as an option.

TAMPA, Fla. - Brent Celek sustained a concussion on the first play from scrimmage in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Celek was helped off the field after a 1-yard catch and taken to the locker room for examination. He is the third key starter on the Eagles offense to suffer a concussion this season. Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy continue to sit with lingering concussions. There was no word after the game on the severity of Celek's concussion. "For him to go out, I'll tell you it was a pretty good [hit]

Here are some observations and ruminations about the Eagles-Saints game: NEW ORLEANS - Michael Vick's ninth interception of the season - and his second pick-six - was both his fault and that of Brent Celek. The veteran tight end ran an "out" route just shy of the goal line, and he had a slight step on the Saints defender Monday night. But Vick led Celek too much. Celek, who may have been held, half-heartedly stuck a hand out and deflected the ball into the hands of New Orleans cornerback Patrick Robinson.

EVERY SUMMER, Brent Celek and his brother Garrett, now a rookie tight end with the 49ers, get together and talk football. Now in his sixth NFL season, Brent plays the role of mentor. If he is as good a teacher as Garrett says he is, he will probably spare his brother any lessons born of this season of Eagles football. Like many of his Eagles teammates, this year has been one to forget for Celek. Whether dropping passes or absorbing bone-crunching hits, the veteran tight end has not been his reliable self in months.

All season, the Eagles have been waiting for a major contribution from their tight end. If you had Brent Celek coming up with one of the top performances all season at that position, you win the pool. With L.J. Smith inactive for yesterday's game with the Cowboys, and Smith's replacement, Matt Schobel, taken out on the first series on a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit by Dallas safety Ken Hamlin, Celek was the last available tight end on the Eagles' roster. That meant a lot more offensive snaps, and it meant the rookie from Cincinnati - normally a blocker - would become one of Donovan McNabb's top targets.

It's not going to make for a good argument if the Eagles and DeSean Jackson ever hold contract extension talks, but the wide receiver could point to Brent Celek's resurgence this season for proof of his worth. Jackson's loss has been Celek's gain. The tight end had a career day as the Eagles held on to dear playoff life and trounced the New York Jets, 45-19, on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Jackson not so much. The pregame storyline on Jackson was that he needed to put on a show against the Jets' all-world cornerback Darrelle Revis with his future in Philadelphia in great doubt.

Brent Celek enjoyed a career day Sunday as the Eagles routed the Seattle Seahawks, 26-7. But even though Celek caught six passes for 131 yards in place of the injured L.J. Smith, Eagles coach Andy Reid insisted yesterday that there is no tight end controversy. When he is healthy, Smith still will be the starter, Reid said. Smith missed Sunday's game with a concussion he suffered Oct. 26 in a 27-14 win against the visiting Atlanta Falcons. "L.J. is a starter when he comes back, and hopefully it works out for him with his [concussion]

DeSean Jackson, the Eagles' best wide receiver and the NFL's leading punt returner, left Sunday's game with a concussion that has made his status questionable at best for the team's Week 13 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Brent Celek, the starting tight end, has a sprained thumb that seemed to be a real problem for him during the Eagles' 27-24 win over the Washington Redskins. Brodrick Bunkley, one of the team's starting defensive tackles, is hobbled by a sprained ankle.

DID THEY even know where they'll be on Thanksgiving? Did they even know they were in Wisconsin last week? The Eagles were not hung over. They did not looking ahead. They executed with alarming precision and vigor and overwhelmed the Titans yesterday, 43-24. They showed no effects from their humiliation in Green Bay. "You can't let the Green Bay Packers beat you twice," said Eagles coach Chip Kelly, whose team moved to 8-3. They gave no hint that they would visit NFC East rival Dallas just 4 days hence; a game cornerback Cary Williams said would be "like a playoff game.

Once again, it's time for the Eagles to stand next to the growth chart. This time, the measuring stick has a blue star attached to it and a Thanksgiving Day carrot that can give the Eagles control of the NFC East title they won a year ago on the final day of the season in Jerry's Giant Screen Pleasure Palace. It is Dallas Week, and nothing gets the blood boiling around here more than that. Even as the 8-3 Eagles worked their way through a flawed 43-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday that told us nothing about where this team is ultimately headed, the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field made it clear where its attention was focused.

Zach Ertz played 64.2 percent of the Eagles' offensive snaps in their first four games. The second-year tight end has played 40.9 percent of the snaps in the last six. Based on the amount of time Ertz has played, his production has been relatively the same. The rookie tight end had 13 catches for 220 yards and a touchdown in the first four games and 17 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown in the next six. He's not playing less because of production - Brent Celek has played 19 percent more snaps this season and has 20 catches for 217 yards and no touchdowns.

ZACH ERTZ sat down with his tight-end coaches, Ted Williams and Justin Peelle, in deep despair just a few weeks ago, Ertz said yesterday. Ertz's 30 catches for 430 yards and two touchdowns through 10 games aren't adding up to the breakthough year to stardom many observers predicted, the year Ertz expected of himself. In fact, Eagles coach Chip Kelly, asked yet again yesterday why Ertz isn't getting more snaps and catches, basically told reporters it's because 8-year veteran Brent Celek is still a better all-around player, and a better fit for Kelly's offense.

There is no longer a mystery about how Mark Sanchez will function as the Eagles' starting quarterback. He threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns without a turnover Monday in a 45-21 rout of the Carolina Panthers. He can improve his efficiency, and the Eagles must do better on third-down conversions, but Sanchez appears to be a quick study in coach Chip Kelly's offense. Now that opposing coordinators have seen him in the system, Sanchez expects defensive looks to evolve, beginning Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

NO BUTT FUMBLES. No forced throws. He even covered a dangerously low snap from Jason Kelce early in the game, when the score was close and it mattered. By the end last night, the better version that Mark Sanchez had promised delivered this: Over 300 yards of passing on a night when the Carolina Panthers sold out to stop the run, 31 points engineered in a 45-21 win and, maybe most important of all, zero turnovers. That's right, zero. It marked the first time this season that the Eagles did not give the other team the ball at least once, allowing an offense that was generating points despite itself to show what it is capable of when it gets out of its own way. And allowing a defense tortured by poor field position to feast on the opposite all night long.

TOMORROW afternoon, Sonny and Christie Acho will occupy the same seats they always do when they attend Arizona Cardinals' home games, in the players' family section at University of Phoenix Stadium. They shouldn't prove difficult to spot. Just look for the only parents wearing midnight green and Cardinals red. "I haven't decided [what to wear], but definitely the Eagles will be represented, maybe in the shirt and Arizona maybe in the hat," Sonny Acho said by phone the other night.

IT WAS MIDNIGHT in the locker room after the sixth game of the season. An Eagles tight end had scored two touchdowns in a shutout of the Giants. You would have thought Brent Celek scored both. He scored neither. "Hey, congratulations!" Celek hollered at James Casey, who had a football tucked under his arm - the football he caught for a touchdown that might otherwise have been Celek's. "See him?" Celek asked, unprovoked, pointing at another teammate. "He made unbelievable catches all night tonight.

The Eagles' best unit this season did not disappoint on Sunday. The special teams, which had four touchdowns in the first five games, appeared similarly potent against the New York Giants. Chris Maragos blocked a second-quarter punt to give the Eagles their third blocked punt in three games. Darren Sproles unleashed a 43-yard punt return. Punter Donnie Jones pinned the Giants inside their own 10-yard line, and kicker Cody Parkey remained a threat on field goals and kickoffs. Sproles has been a significant upgrade as a punt returner.
