BALTIMORE - Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was doing "fine" and was expected to be released from the hospital Monday after Arians missed Sunday's 24-9 playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. A team official said that Arians was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center on Sunday with nausea and headaches. Arians, 60, was ill and left the Colts practice facility on Thursday but returned the next day. The Eagles have requested permission to interview Arians for their head coaching position.

New Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians on Monday hired Todd Bowles as defensive coordinator, Harold Goodwin as offensive coordinator, and Tom Moore as assistant head coach/offense. Bowles was a defensive back and team captain at Temple when Arians coached the Owls in the 1980s. The Eagles promoted Bowles from secondary coach to defensive coordinator on Oct. 16. He replaces Ray Horton, now the defensive coordinator for Cleveland. Moore spent 12 years as Peyton Manning's offensive coordinator with Indianapolis.

Temple's worst football decision in the last 25 years? No-brainer: firing Bruce Arians. Maybe it seemed like a good idea at the time, a quarter-century back, since Arians won only seven games in his final two seasons on North Broad Street. That's what you do when teams win seven games in two seasons, right? Time to bring in a new man. Unless you're Temple. Arians should have gotten a raise. Yes, it's obvious now that the man can coach. He went on to a productive career as an NFL assistant, was offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh, impressively took charge of the Indianapolis Colts this season when cancer hit head coach Chuck Pagano, and now is on the frequent-interviewee list for open head coaching spots, including with the Eagles, who are expected to meet with Arians on Tuesday.

Temple football coach Bruce Arians received a vote of confidence from university officials yesterday - three days after the Owls finished their worst football season since 1960. Arians said yesterday that he had felt confident about his future at Temple, despite speculation that his job might be in jeopardy because of the Owls' 3-8 record this fall. "To be totally honest, I wasn't expecting anything different than what came out," said Arians, who has been the Owls' coach since 1983.

The Eagles refused to confirm reports out of Oregon that James Harris, an assistant athletic director, and Josh Gibson, the director of football operations, will be joining former Ducks coach Chip Kelly with the Eagles. Multiple reports said Harris would become assistant general manager. A source close to the situation said that would not be the case. Harris' bio on the Oregon website seems to indicate his expertise is in nutrition. The Eagles said they won't confirm any hirings until Kelly's entire staff is assembled.

BRUCE ARIANS was the head football coach at Temple from 1983-88 and had 10 players drafted by NFL teams, including first-rounders John Rienstra (Steelers, 1986) and Paul Palmer (Chiefs, 1987). One of his most productive players, Todd Bowles, went undrafted but managed to latch on with the Redskins and spend eight seasons in the NFL as a defensive back. Bowles was a starting cornerback on the 'Skins' 1987 Super Bowl team. Bowles missed the first three games of his senior season with a broken wrist, but his enthusiasm never waned.

Temple athletic director Charles Theokas said yesterday that a decision on the future of embattled Owls football coach Bruce Arians would be made "sometime this week. " Theokas said that he would meet with Temple president Peter J. Liacouras and vice president H. Patrick Swygert over the next few days to decided whether to retain Arians, who has one year left on a three-year contract he signed in 1986. Yesterday's 45-28 win over Boston College pushed Arians' career mark at Temple to 27-39.

New Indianapolis head coach Chuck Pagano began filling out his staff on Saturday, by hiring Bruce Arians as the Colts' new offensive coordinator. The former Temple coach was actually the Colts' quarterbacks coach from 1998 to 2000, Peyton Manning's first three years in the NFL. The move is seen as preparation for the Colts' drafting of Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick in April. Arians had left the Pittsburgh Steelers by mutual consent on Jan. 5.   Bears hire GM Chicago hired Kansas City Chiefs director of college scouting Phil Emery as its new general manager.

THE INDIANAPOLIS Colts want offensive coordinator Bruce Arians to stick around a little longer. They also understand he wants to become an NFL head coach. On Thursday, the Colts said Arians had been granted permission to speak with the Chicago Bears about their head coaching vacancy, which became available when Lovie Smith was fired on Monday. It is unclear when the interview will take place because Indy (11-5) will face AFC North champion Baltimore (10-6) in a wild-card round game Sunday.

Most evaluations of the Eagles' new quarterback come with a two-word caveat that seems attached to Sam Bradford's name: if healthy . The qualifier shows both the risk the Eagles absorbed in Tuesday's trade and the potential reward that could come their way. "When I put the question mark on him, that's it," said former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski, an ESPN analyst. "I don't question his talent, his ability, his cerebral ability to lead a football team and run an offense. But he's got to stay healthy.

PAUL PALMER played at Temple from 1983-86 for Bruce Arians, and of course finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting as a senior behind Miami quarterback Vinnie Testaverde. Now an analyst on the Owls' radio broadcasts, he still holds the program records for career rushing yards (4,895) and carries (935) and has the two best single-season totals (1,866, and 1,516 as a junior). In those days, there was no Big East yet. All the Eastern schools were independents. Ditto the Miamis and Florida States of the food chain.

LARRY FITZGERALD is 31 years old now, but the Eagles said this week that isn't why Fitzgerald has only 23 catches for 283 yards through six games - putting the Arizona Cardinals' star on a pace for the lowest totals of his 11-year NFL career. "It's nothing to do with Larry not being Larry. It has to do with all the other weapons they've surrounded the quarterback with," Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis said this week. "The options are everywhere. The running back is getting a lot, Floyd is getting a lot . Young Brown has got some speed" and 17 catches for 197 yards.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The game's biggest play came down to one key sign between the quarterback and the wide receiver. Carson Palmer's signal to wide receiver John Brown late in the fourth quarter was intended to break the Cardinals' rookie wide receiver from the Eagles coverage. Facing a 17-14 deficit, and third and 5 from his own 25-yard line with less than two minutes remaining, Palmer saw the two Eagles safeties positioned as "sticks," or side-by-side. Palmer signaled for Brown to move aggressively toward one of the safeties.

There is no charming or creative name attached to the offense that Bruce Arians brought with him when he became the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals last season. It is an offense, however, that usually has some complimentary adjectives preceding it: Good , effective , innovative , and inclusive immediately come to mind. It's the last of those adjectives that has forced the face of the Cardinals to adjust to a new way of doing things. Upon entering the NFL as the third overall draft pick in 2004, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald almost immediately became the man in the Arizona offense.

There is nothing simple about what the Eagles will want and need center David Molk to do Sunday when they face the 5-1 Arizona Cardinals out in the desert. Because the Cardinals have been besieged by injuries on defense, they believe their best weapon against the Eagles, or any offense, for that matter, is deception. So when Molk reaches down to grab the football before the start of each Eagles play, he can expect to see planned chaos on the other side. Sometimes he'll see a 3-4 look, which is the Cardinals' base defense.

TODAY, JUST as they did last year, the Eagles return from their bye looking toward a date with the Arizona Cardinals. Some things are the same, many things are different for two NFC teams that finished 10-6 last year, the Eagles winning a weak NFC East, the Cards shut out of the playoffs in the powerful NFC West. Had Arizona beaten the Birds last Dec. 1, instead of getting nipped, 24-21, after coming back from a 24-7 second-half deficit, the Cards would have gone to the 2013 playoffs.

EACH SPRING when the NFL releases its schedule, football-crazed fans across the Delaware Valley go through and mark down potential wins and losses for each of the Eagles' 16 regular-season games. It's a fun exercise, but every fall the same thing happens - a few teams we thought would be good aren't, and several we penciled in as sure-thing wins soon no longer appear that way. So with the 5-1 Eagles on their bye week and all teams five or six games into their seasons, here's a quick look at the statuses of each of the final nine regular-season opponents for Chip Kelly & Co. At Arizona Cardinals Record: 4-1 Combined opponents' record: 17-12 Week 7 opponent: at Raiders In a way, the Cardinals' first 6 weeks have gone similarly to the Eagles, Bruce Arians' squad scrapping its way to wins despite missing several key players.

WHY WAIT? Aaron Ruff committed to Temple nearly a year ago. He didn't have to. He could have played the recruiting game for all it was worth, since he had options. He just didn't see the point, even if others didn't understand. "Temple had offered me from the [start]," said Ruff, a 6-4, 295-pound offensive lineman from Imhotep Charter who is rated among the top prospects in Pennsylvania. "When I took a tour, saw the [facilities] and met with the coaching staff, it was like paradise here.

IN MOMENTS like these, the standard reaction is to display as much affection as one's masculinity will allow, then utter a few heartfelt words that will probably sound corny in hindsight while striding into the offseason with head held high. And so it was that Jason Kelce and Howie Roseman converged in the center of the Eagles locker room on Saturday night and engaged in a sort of man-hug with a standard awkwardness exacerbated by the physical appearance of its participants - one of them 300 pounds and wearing a grimy cutoff T-shirt with a beard that might soon be classified as its own ecosystem, the other in a business suit draped over a frame that might check in at a buck plus 60. "We'll get there," the general manager said.
