BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Correll Buckhalter first needed to prepare a resume. It's a required task for any job seeker, but Buckhalter has not necessarily needed to seek a job. He was drafted by the Eagles as a running back out of Nebraska in 2001 and spent the next 10 years with an NFL contract. Last summer, Buckhalter wasn't in an NFL camp for the first time. He was 32. He didn't want to sit at home. Life moves on. He needed to do the same. "While I was playing the game, I always was like, 'I'm not coaching, I don't want to coach,' " Buckhalter said.

At a time when the Eagles have a lengthy list of unhappy and unwilling campers, running back Correll Buckhalter is delighted to be one of the few veterans at this week's rookie camp. Furthermore, he can't wait for training camp to begin at the end of July. That perspective is the polar opposite of those shared by wide receiver Terrell Owens, defensive tackle Corey Simon and running back Brian Westbrook, all of whom boycotted the Eagles' last minicamp because of contract disputes.

A cruise down South Street Friday night cost three Eagles rookies a trip to Dallas for today's game against the Cowboys, and will provide a test of coach Andy Reid's rules for player conduct. The Eagles yesterday suspended running back Correll Buckhalter and defensive backs Terrence Carroll and Darrel Crutchfield for today's game after Carroll was arrested on marijuana charges. Carroll and Crutchfield have yet to dress for a game this season. Buckhalter, Carroll and Crutchfield were taken into custody by police Friday night after officers smelled marijuana coming from a sport-utility vehicle they were riding in on South Street.

News that Eagles coach Andy Reid may be about to incorporate more run and less pass into the offense was greeted with predictable enthusiasm from the running backs yesterday after practice at the NovaCare Complex. Take away McNabb's 11 carries for 108 yards and wide receiver James Thrash's opening-game 47-yard run, and the Eagles' running-back trio of Duce Staley, Brian Westbrook and Correll Buckhalter have combined for 21 carries and 65 yards. "Of course it's something I think we should do," Staley said.

The running back and the middle linebacker were at the NovaCare Complex yesterday, all smiles and eagerness about the 2002 season. That would be Correll Buckhalter and Barry Gardner who showed up for the first day of the Eagles' unofficial off-season workout program. For the record, unhappy campers Duce Staley and Jeremiah Trotter were among the roughly 50 percent of players who did not make an appearance at the complex. That's technically not news. Attendance is not mandatory.

You probably already know some of the story. Correll Buckhalter lost three seasons to knee surgeries earlier in his career, and yet he remains a productive member of the Eagles' roster. The Eagles will probably ask for more from Buckhalter tonight against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field because star running back Brian Westbrook is hobbled by an ankle injury that has made his status questionable. There's a part of Buckhalter's story, however, that rarely if ever gets told.

Dorsey Levens isn't a dinosaur, but he is an endangered species. At 34, he is the second-oldest running back in the NFL behind only future Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith of the Arizona Cardinals, the NFL's all-time rushing leader. Smith is one year and six days older than Levens, who also became the oldest player in the Eagles' locker room yesterday after he passed his physical and officially joined the team at the NovaCare Complex. Given his age and unemployment at this time last week, Levens had considered the thought that his career was over after 10 seasons, which is considerably longer than the 2.6-year average life span of an NFL running back's career.

The Eagles plan on bringing in running back Stephen Davis for a tryout as soon as today, according to a report on NBC10. The 6-foot, 230-pound Davis could provide some needed depth at running back for the Birds, with Brian Westbrook and Correll Buckhalter both coming back from injuries. Davis, 32, last played for the Carolina Panthers and has 7,805 yards rushing over a 10-year career with the Washington Redskins and the Panthers.

Donovan McNabb had his ups and downs with the fans during his 11 seasons as the Eagles quarterback. But there was only adulation when his jersey number was retired at halftime of the Eagles game with the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field. The speculation by local and national pundits that McNabb would hear boos never materialized. On this night, it was a true lovefest. The crowd gave McNabb an extended standing ovation when he was introduced by former teammate Brian Dawkins.

THERE ARE a lot of things about Andy Reid that annoyed the hell out of Eagles fans, but nothing got their blood boiling more than his obsessive love for the forward pass. "You win in this league by throwing the football," Reid would say every time someone questioned a lopsided pass-to-run ratio. It's hard to argue with the overall results. For the most part, his way worked. Big Red has more wins than any coach in Eagles history. In 14 seasons, he guided the Birds to nine playoff appearances, six division titles, five NFC Championship Game appearances and one trip to the Super Bowl.

RUNNING BACKS as big as Bryce Brown, who is 6-foot and 225 pounds, aren't supposed to be as fast as Bryce Brown.  They aren't supposed to be able to run a 4.37 40-yard dash like Brown did at the predraft workout that convinced the Eagles to take a seventh-round flier on a kid who quit two college programs and entered the draft with just 104 college carries.  And they aren't supposed to get to a corner and turn it and have an entire defense eat...

BETHLEHEM – Marty Mornhinweg was talking Monday about how he needs to find more touches for his backup running back. As it happens, Correll Buckhalter is in camp with the Eagles this summer as a coaching intern. A reporter told Buckhalter what Mornhinweg said, and the reporter allowed that he had heard that before, somewhere. Buckhalter laughed heartily. "Haven't we all?" he asked. For much of the time he played for the Eagles, Buckhalter labored in the shadow of Brian Westbrook, who seemed to be the perfect back for Andy Reid's West Coast system, at least until LeSean McCoy came along.

MICHAEL VICK said yesterday the feeling on the Eagles' sideline Sunday wasn't despair, as the Giants took leads of 24-3 and 31-10. It wasn't unbribled optimism, but it wasn't despair. "Guys didn't really have their heads down. It wasn't really like the game was over," the quarterback said during his weekly appearance on the Tony Mercurio Show on ESPN 94.3 in Virginia Beach, Va. "It was more so of 'How did we get in this position? How did it even get to this point?' We couldn't understand that.

THE BEST YOUNG running back in the history of the franchise, a more productive runner/receiver at this point in his career than any of them (and by a lot), LeSean McCoy is modeled after Brian Westbrook and pointed in the same direction. That is the big picture. Cowboys Stadium, Sunday night, 4:22 left to play, Eagles leading by 30-27, ball on their 10-yard line, short pass to McCoy for 6 yards, McCoy over the left side for 12 yards, and then for 19 yards, and then over the right side for 13 yards and then, later, on the final meaningful play, over the left side again for a backbreaking 6 yards on third-and-1.

The injury news was optimistic yesterday when Eagles coach Andy Reid spoke to reporters, as his players began a much-needed 5-day break. Reid said cornerback Asante Samuel (knee) and defensive end Juqua Parker (hip), who have missed the last two games, "are making progress and when we resume practice, they should be available to go. " Right tackle Winston Justice, who left Thursday night's game with a left knee injury after Amobi Okoye rolled onto the back of his leg with a little more than 9 minutes left, has a hyperextension, Reid said, not a sprain.

When the Eagles signed Mike Bell in March, they thought they were getting Correll Buckhalter. That's their story and they're sticking to it. "We kind of pictured him in a Correll Buckhalter type of role," general manager Howie Roseman said Wednesday after shipping Bell to the Cleveland Browns for running back Jerome Harrison. "A guy you can use in the same backfield with LeSean [McCoy]. A guy who could block, who could catch a little, who could run. " Well, zero out of four ain't bad. Bell rarely teamed in the same backfield with McCoy during his short stay in Philly.
