Phil Costa was in no mood to reflect on his remarkable rise to the NFL, and who could blame him? The former offensive lineman from Holy Cross was still digesting the bitter defeat that he and his Dallas Cowboys teammates had just suffered in what wasn't a happy homecoming for the Moorestown resident. It was less than an hour after the Cowboys squandered a 14-point, fourth-quarter lead in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium, and Costa was preparing for the long ride back to Dallas.

AN ARBITRATOR upheld the NFL's salary cap reductions on the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins for this season and next. Stephen Burbank ruled Tuesday in favor of the league and dismissed the grievances by both teams. The Redskins lost $36 million over 2 years. The Cowboys lost $10 million for overloading contracts during the uncapped 2010 season despite league warnings about such maneuvering. The Cowboys and Redskins, who filed their grievances against the league and players' association, said in a joint statement they would "abide by the arbitrator's decision to dismiss.

THE COWBOYS are using drones to film their practice sessions from overhead. According to ESPN's Todd Archer, head coach Jason Garrett got the idea from SMU coach Chad Morris. "We pride ourselves on coaching and teaching our players as well as we can and film has been a big part of the game for a long time," Garrett said. "Typically you have an end-zone shot and a sideline shot. We use a lot of hand-held cameras on the ground . . . One of our coaches went down to SMU for their spring practices and saw they were using it. They liked the angle.

IRVING, Texas - Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Jack Crawford laughed at the question and pleaded guilty when talking about the beginning of his football career in South Jersey at St. Augustine. Speaking a couple of days before a 33-27 loss to the Eagles on Sunday, Crawford was asked if he knew how to put the pads on when he first took up the game as a junior in high school. "No, I didn't know how to put them on at all," he said, laughing. "I didn't know there were so many pads, and I came into the locker room and didn't know how to do it. " He quickly learned the rudiments of the game.

From his office in his Dallas lumber company, Lee Roy Jordan pleaded ignorance of his standing as perhaps the most infamous villain in Philadelphia football history. On Dec. 10, 1967, Jordan delivered an elbow and forearm to the face of Eagles running back Timmy Brown, a hit naked and vicious and unforgettable for the man who suffered it - or for anyone who witnessed it. Newspaper reports at the time said it cost Brown four teeth. Brown said recently that the actual number was nine.

They started with the success of The Philly Fan by Bruce Graham, continued with The Disappearing Quarterback by Mike Boryla, then Assassin by David Robson.

SOUL RUNNING back Derrick Ross was named first-team all-AFL for the fourth consecutive season. Ross, the league's all-time leading rusher, broke his own team record this season by running for 36 touchdowns. Ross should get consideration for the league's offensive MVP award, though Arizona quarterback Nick Davila is probably the favorite. The remainder of the AFL's awards will be announced next week ahead of the Aug. 23 championship game between Cleveland and visiting Arizona.

THE EAGLES still have tickets left for most of their regular-season home games. As of Monday morning, only the October game against the Dallas Cowboys was completely sold out. In past years, for at least a decade, the Eagles have sold out in a single day. Not this year. Not even close. A dozen weeks after single-game tickets went on sale, fans have snapped up all the seats for only the games against two archrivals, the Dallas Cowboys (Oct. 20) and the New York Giants (Oct. 27)

Sometimes the sequence of events changes everything. In his three seasons as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, Chip Kelly posted a 25-22 record. Considering Kelly took over a 4-win team that everyone knew was in need of a major rebuild, a winning record through the first three seasons with a division championship would normally be viewed as a good start. But Kelly got there by going 10-6 and winning the NFC East in his rookie season; then he went 10-6 again followed by a 5-11 record when he was fired with one game remaining in the 2015 season.

It was the one present that had no price. Among all of the $160,050 in gifts that District Attorney Seth Williams has reported receiving since 2010 - the visits to upscale horse ranches, flights to Key West, a new roof - just one item was judged to have "no face value. " That was a pair of all-access sideline passes to five years of Eagles games at Lincoln Financial Field. The passes had no face value, Williams stated, because they didn't come with seats. Eagles representatives say the same.

The NFL is so unpredictable and yet we still try to predict it, especially at this time of year when the countdown to training camp is so close. It is an impossible exercise in a high-speed collision sport. Just ask the Dallas Cowboys. They might have been good enough to win a second straight division title with Tony Romo last season, but they could barely win a game without him. Romo, after being limited to two complete games by a left collarbone that was fractured twice, is back and the Cowboys are again a popular pick to win the NFC East, the division that is unquestionably the most difficult to predict.

HE NEVER WON a playoff game with the Eagles, but Buddy Ryan won over Eagles fans. James David "Buddy" Ryan, who died Tuesday at age 85, created one of the most feared defenses in the NFL in Gang Green, but perhaps lost amid the well-deserved praise, in the wake of his passing, for his defensive genius is the fact he also helped usher in a new brand of football in the NFL. Overstating, you say? Then, let's remind everyone he helped turn quarterback Randall Cunningham into the player whom Sports Illustrated dubbed "The Ultimate Weapon.

You knew when Buddy Ryan walked off the concrete-like carpet at Veterans Stadium on that chilly January day in 1991 that you were never going to see anyone in charge of the Eagles quite like him again. The only difference of opinion was whether that was a good thing or a bad one. The debates were waged in barrooms and locker rooms. They dominated the newspaper coverage and radio air waves. They continue even today after Ryan died in Kentucky on Tuesday morning at the age of 85. Buddy Ball, the goring brand of defense that brazenly targeted opposing quarterbacks, was the quintessential roller-coaster ride in Philadelphia sports history.

Malcolm Jenkins and Zach Ertz suffered concussions last season - the first, they said, of their NFL careers. In the Eagles' 10th game, Ertz, a tight end, caught a pass and tried to hurdle a defender for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He landed on his left shoulder, and his head snapped back as if he were the mannequin behind the wheel in an old driver's-ed video. He sat out the Eagles' next game, four days later on Thanksgiving in Detroit. In the Eagles' eighth game, Jenkins, one of the Eagles' starting safeties, lowered his head into the chest of Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden as he tried to tackle him. He rose to his feet and felt his mind fog over but didn't tell anyone.

The last image of Nolan Carroll in an Eagles uniform came with the cornerback sitting on the back of a cart on Thanksgiving with a doctor by his side. At the time, Carroll had worked his way atop the depth chart and was four months away from hitting free agency. Then came a major injury that ended his season after 11 games and eventually hurt his stock on the open market. Initially reported as a broken ankle, Carroll actually broke his fibula - along with ligament damage - and needed screws inserted during the repair.

One year after the Eagles acquired DeMarco Murray, Byron Maxwell, and Kiko Alonso as part of a high-profile offseason overhaul, the team agreed to trade them all on the same day. Murray will be dealt to the Tennessee Titans, his agency confirmed. Maxwell and Alonso will be sent to the Miami Dolphins for draft picks, according to league sources. The specific return on either trade was not known. The deals were reached on Monday, but they will not be made official until the new league year begins on Wednesday.

Roy Price always wanted his son to be a boxer. It's what had distanced the father from gang activity on the North Camden streets where he grew up, and put a stop to the black eyes and busted lips he got from fights with other kids. So after Price's son, Royon, turned 4, Price began teaching him boxing. "I didn't want to start off too late," said Price, 52, who was nicknamed "Stingray Price" from his days as an amateur and professional boxer, and who displays the trophies and newspaper clippings in his Camden home.
