It's a long way from the glamour of catching 100 passes in college to the grunt work of running under a punt and crashing into someone. Dameane Douglas has made the journey with a smile on his face. "I hadn't tackled anybody since high school," Douglas said yesterday. "I had to work on my tackling skills. But it's not really a change in attitude. It's a change in what I'm doing. In college, I was asked to make the play. That happened to be catching the ball. Now that means going down and making the tackle.

It was an accident, not a dance. Dameane Douglas had just scored his first NFL touchdown and was about to spike the ball when something occurred to him. "I realized my family was on the other side of the stadium," Douglas said. "I had to run over to the other side. " The result looked like a choreographed celebration: three steps to the left, fake the spike, then pirouette, take three steps to the right and slam the ball into the ground. "No, no," Douglas said. "It was definitely spontaneous.

Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil said the extent of the injury wouldn't be known until Douglas was evaluated by a doctor, but that it didn't look good for the unrestricted free agent who was battling for the team's fifth wide-receiver spot.

Remember, most of these Eagles have not been this far. So imagine how they reacted yesterday when they saw a locker room full of reporters, outnumbering them by at least 2 to 1. An Eagles-New York Giants division playoff game offers lots of things, and accessibility for media hordes is one of them. Reporters came from Philadelphia, New Jersey, New York and beyond. "Obviously, by the turnout here, we have a pretty big game this weekend," coach Andy Reid said as he arrived at Veterans Stadium for his Wednesday chat with reporters.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dameane Douglas was carried from the field yesterday after injuring his knee when Minnesota Vikings cornerback Rushen Jones threw him to the ground during a joint practice in River Falls, Wis. Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil said the extent of the injury wasn't yet known, but was furious at the hit, telling a Vikings scout that someone should take a shotgun to Jones and "shoot him in the head. " Vermeil said it didn't look good for the unrestricted free agent, who was battling for the team's fifth wide receiver spot.

When Eagles wide receiver and special teamer Dameane Douglas wanted to buy a vintage car last summer, he asked offensive lineman John Welbourn to help him out. Douglas bought a '73 Impala. When Eagles defensive lineman Brandon Whiting needed a place to go for Christmas last month, he went to Douglas' home in Clementon. Welbourn's college roommate is one of Whiting's best friends. Douglas knows Whiting's parents, and Welbourn's too. All three Eagles are 25, single and California-bred, and began college in 1994 at the University of California at Berkeley.

Really, little remains to salvage from this lost Eagles season. The team stands at 3-10. Rookie quarterback Donovan McNabb has shown flashes of talent and intelligence. First-year coach Andy Reid has had shining moments and moments of ignominy. Now, all that is left is gauging where the Birds stand entering next season. As such, how the younger players perform in the final three weeks will help determine what moves the Eagles need to make to get better, especially at defensive tackle and wide receiver.

Todd Pinkston couldn't have been more than 6 or 7 years old when his dad took him to a Mississippi Valley State football game. "That's where my dad had played," Pinkston said. "I don't remember how old I was. I just remember the place, and I remember seeing Jerry Rice. " Dameane Douglas was in first grade. His school picture from that year shows him in a black-and-silver Raiders jersey. Douglas was drafted by the Raiders out of Cal and spent training camp soaking up everything Tim Brown had to teach him. "He's just a real professional," Douglas said.

Brian Mitchell saw the hole open fast and wide, the way Hollis Thomas' mouth reacts around pizza. "Dameane Douglas [the kick-return team's lead blocker] said he couldn't believe how quick that happened," Mitchell said. Suddenly there was no one between the Eagles' kick returner and the end zone but a tiny Cardinals kicker. And Bill Gramatica, feet planted firmly in the Arizona turf, one arm raised rather feebly at his side, looked for all the world like a helpless cactus. "There was 11 of them and 11 of us, and they left the kicker for me," Mitchell said.

This was a meaningless exhibition, a dreadfully dull prelude - except for the final two minutes - to the playoff rematch Saturday at Veterans Stadium. Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb retreated to the safety of the sideline after just two plays without having thrown a pass last night. He still logged more playing time than his tight end, one of his receivers, and three of his five offensive linemen. Tampa Bay quarterback Brad Johnson played one series and completed three of four passes before joining star running back Warrick Dunn, receiver Keyshawn Johnson, and a long list of other Tampa Bay starters on the home team's sideline.

So now what? The off-season arrived suddenly for the Eagles yesterday, courtesy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As last year's tumultuous winter and spring proved, reaching the NFC championship game won't shield the Eagles from change on their roster. "Every year is different," linebacker Shawn Barber said. "Every year is a different group of guys. " "It's not about keeping the team together," Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said. "It's about trying to get better and better and better every year.

They learned their lesson. That's what the Eagles said after they lost to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Of course, it's also what they said after they blew a fourth-quarter lead to lose in Tennessee back on Sept. 8 and after they played poorly to lose in Jacksonville on Oct. 6. If each of these losses truly was a wake-up call, the Eagles should have a terrific case of insomnia by now. There are plenty of lessons for the Eagles, the coaching staff and, yes, the fans, to learn from Sunday's game, and from what's happening all around the NFL right now. Peyton Manning, the Colts quarterback who, in Hugh Douglas' words, "got all surgical" on the Eagles defense, has been in the league a year longer than Donovan McNabb.

The ball was not yet in punter Chris Hanson's hands when the yellow flags began to flutter toward the Alltel Stadium turf like an unwelcome rain. Before the Eagles' special teams were through with their decidedly non-special performance yesterday, the rain would fall much harder. There were 12 Eagles on the field on Hanson's pivotal punt with three minutes left in the first half. This has been illegal in the NFL since George Halas was still a Baby Bear. And though the Eagles could have used 12 players, or even 13 later, on Bobby Shaw's 69-yard punt return for the touchdown that sealed their 28-25 loss to the Jaguars yesterday, the rules were no different.

There is a catch to being a wide receiver in the West Coast offense. You don't just have to learn the offense, which is difficult enough. You have to learn defenses, too. Then you have to figure out which variation of your route to run, based on the defensive coverage, and you have to run it perfectly. And then, finally, you have to hope you made the same read as the quarterback. "When you don't," Eagles wide receiver Dameane Douglas said, "it looks really bad. The receiver goes one way and the ball goes the other.

Brian Westbrook fumbled the first punt he tried to return last night in the Eagles' penalty-slathered, 16-15 exhibition loss to the Super Bowl champion Patriots. Westbrook also bobbled the first kickoff he returned and dubiously fair-caught another punt on the Eagles 15-yard line - mistakes befitting a rookie playing his first NFL game at length, before a sellout crowd, on the road. But Westbrook also typified what coach Andy Reid said after the game, referring to the young Eagles who played in the first contest at Gillette Stadium, the Patriots' $325 million new stadium.

Call off the search. Donovan McNabb - the gunning, running, winning guy with the big 5 on his chest - was found last night. In Missouri, of all places. Just four days after an offensive meltdown at the Vet, McNabb and the Eagles entertained a national television audience with a commanding 23-10 victory over Dick Vermeil's Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The short-week win gave the Eagles a 7-4 record and a chance to enjoy it for 10 days before they host San Diego.
