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.

THE EAGLES talked to 11 coaching candidates in January 2013 before their first choice, Chip Kelly, reconsidered his decision to stay at Oregon. Bruce Arians was the path - or maybe the Kangol cap - not taken. There was talk at the time of a pending Arians interview with the Eagles, and sure enough, Arians told a conference call yesterday that one was scheduled. Arians said he went to interview in Chicago, and while he was there, the Browns, Chargers and Eagles all canceled interviews.

Bruce Arians started a conference call with Philadelphia-area reporters on Wednesday by paying homage to the college football team he used to coach. "How 'bout those Temple Owls, baby!" said Arians, now the Arizona Cardinals coach. "What a year. " Arians coached Temple from 1983 to 1988. He went 27-39 with two winning seasons. He said still follows the Owls "very, very" closely. His coaching staff in Arizona has had a Temple flavor. Cornerbacks coach Kevin Ross played at Temple for 1980 to 1983 and "has Temple stuff on every day," Arians said.

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.

Why is Chase Daniel here? In some ways, the question is easy to answer. He is here because of his close relationship with Doug Pederson, who is his head coach with the Eagles and was his offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs. He is here because the Eagles signed him to a three-year contract that gave Daniel $12 million in guaranteed money and that could be worth up to $21 million - a handsome paycheck for a quarterback who has started two games in seven NFL seasons. And he is here because of his intimate knowledge of Pederson's offense.

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.

Bruce Arians went to Chicago to interview with the Bears for their head coaching vacancy in 2013 thinking that he had the job. The Eagles apparently thought so, too. The Eagles, Browns, and Chargers canceled interviews with the then-Colts offensive coordinator when he visited Chicago first, Arians said Wednesday. The Bears filed the necessary paperwork first and therefore had dibs. Asked why those three teams canceled - all on the same day - Arians said, "I never got an answer other than, 'Thanks but no thanks.' " Arians, of course, didn't get the Bears job. It went to Marc Trestman instead.

Did it bother Bruce Arians, new to his job as Temple's head football coach in 1983, that Temple's president, Peter Liacouras, publicly expected Arians' Owls to make it to the Sugar Bowl in short order? It did not. "That's what I thought, too," Arians said over the phone Friday afternoon. "I wanted to work for someone who thought like that. It was fun to work for someone who dreamed the same way you did. " It took Arians three decades to achieve such heights, in his second head-coaching job - in the NFL, with the Arizona Cardinals - but he hasn't forgotten his first head-coaching stop, which is why Arians, just off a plane, returned a call back to Philadelphia.

EMOTION CAN carry you only so far. The previous two weeks sexagenarian owner Jeffrey Lurie spurred the Eagles to play with passion. They ran and blocked with abandon; executed with precision. Lurie delivered impassioned speeches before and after the upset at New England. The next week he distributed black T-shirts with "53 Angry Men" emblazoned on them before the Birds beat the Bills. There were not 53 Angry Men at the Linc on Sunday night. There were 53 Hopeful Gents.

Bill Davis could neither explain nor excuse the performance he'd just witnessed from his defense, and as he stood in the Eagles' locker room late Sunday night, he couldn't erase it with his patented square-my-jaw, look-you-in-the-eye responses to the questions coming his way. The Arizona Cardinals hadn't just gotten the better of the Eagles and Davis's defense, 40-17. They had emasculated them. They had run past them, run over them, stiff-armed them to the ground, and with every reference, seven in all, to the Eagles' terrible tackling Sunday night, Davis was subtly indicting the toughness of a defense that was fortunate not to have been embarrassed worse than it was. "The tackling was awful," he said.

The starting quarterbacks in the Eagles-Cardinals game on Sunday both own a Heisman Trophy, heard their names called as the No. 1 overall pick, and twice needed to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. If Eagles fans are looking for a model for Sam Bradford's career, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer could be a good place to start. The 13-year veteran has been traded one more time than Bradford, but he has the Cardinals at 11-2 and has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season.

WHEN THE DAY comes for Larry Fitzgerald to make his induction speech on the stage in Canton, Ohio, he better save a few paragraphs to thank the Eagles. The Cardinals' all-time leading receiver has scored at least one touchdown in each of the seven games he's faced the Eagles. Of his 105 career TDs including the playoffs, 11 have come against the Birds. That's a little more than 10 percent of his total touchdowns against a team he's played less than four percent of his games. "He's one of the best football players I've played with at any position," said quarterback Carson Palmer, a 12-year NFL veteran.

EVERY YEAR, for reasons I still haven't been able to ascertain, the Southern California town of Newport Beach honors the last player picked in the NFL draft. They call him "Mr. Irrelevant" and they fly the guy out to the left coast and wine and dine him and shower him with gifts and have a banquet in his honor, then put him back on a plane, so he can try to make somebody's practice squad. Three years ago, Bruce Arians was the Mr. Irrelevant of that year's NFL head-coaching hires.
