EAGLES AGENDA Who: Eagles at Bears What: First preseason game When: Tonight, 8 o'clock Where: Soldier Field, Chicago TV: 6ABC Radio: WIP (94.1-FM, 610-AM) Three things to watch: * 1. Wide receivers: You didn't need us to tell you this. First time out with no DeSean Jackson. Riley Cooper isn't playing, and it doesn't seem likely Jeremy Maclin will. There are youngsters to watch, such as rookies Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff, and there are veterans looking to grab a toehold, such as Arrelious Benn and Brad Smith.

DeSEAN JACKSON is gone, and the people who believe he is the most dangerous receiver in the history of the world are convinced the Eagles won't be able to survive without him. There is genuine concern that his 82 catches and 1,332 receiving yards and nine touchdowns are gone, lost forever, never to be replaced. There is genuine concern that Riley Cooper won't be able to figure out how tie his cleats this season without Jackson, let alone get open and catch a pass from Nick Foles.

Jeffrey Lurie praised Chip Kelly and Nick Foles, but the Eagles owner stopped short of raising expectations for his coach and starting quarterback after a better-than-anticipated 2013 season. During an impromptu interview after Wednesday's practice at the NovaCare Complex, Lurie made it obvious that he is pleased with the state of his franchise. Kelly guided the Eagles to an NFC East crown in his first year, Foles set NFL records even though he was not the starter for a full season, and the returning team is chock full of talent and youth.

DeSEAN JACKSON has a selective memory. Jackson, who signed with the Redskins in March after spending six seasons in Philly, was asked by CSN Washington's Chick Hernandez yesterday to compare Eagles and Redskins fans. "It is different," Jackson said. "[Redskins fans] are very supportive here. They're open. Being out here on the field, I've been hearing certain things. But you know, they're good things. In Philly sometimes things could have got a little negative. They booed their own players.

CORTLAND, N.Y. - Michael Vick made a play Tuesday that made you catch your breath - because even though he is 34 years old and spent 18 months in prison and is about to begin his 12th season in the NFL, he is still good for at least one play in any practice or game that will make you catch your breath. This time he was gliding backward in the pocket during a brief intrasquad scrimmage with his new team, the New York Jets, when he snapped his left arm downward to throw a 10-yard out to wide receiver Greg Salas.

ON THOSE RARE dark days when he would drop his guard and the self-pity would come rushing at him, Arrelious Benn would ask, "Why me, God? Why me?" Many athletes are fortunate enough to play their entire careers without a major injury. Benn isn't one of them. There have been not one, but two, torn ACLs. To the same knee. There has been a torn medial collateral ligament. There have been neck and shoulder injuries. There has been a concussion. In four NFL seasons, the 25-year-old Eagles wide receiver has missed 27 of 64 regular-season games due to injury.

Just because few rookie wide receivers have come into the NFL in their first seasons and dominated doesn't mean that Jordan Matthews will not. But some of the reports that have trickled out of Eagles practices about Matthews' feats have been downright hyperbolic when evidence contrary to his making a first-year splash is so overwhelming. The Eagles don't need Matthews to put up those kinds of numbers even without DeSean Jackson. Their offensive personnel are designed so that they can play any type of game with balance at the three skill positions of receiver, running back and tight end. They are high on Matthews, though, both in public and private.

SOMETIMES WHEN we touch, the honesty's too much . . . LeSean McCoy has probably never heard that 1977 Dan Hill song, and he is much better for it, since it regularly earns a high spot in polls ranking the worst-ever lyrics. But McCoy had an issue with being touched yesterday by his Eagles teammate and buddy, Trent Cole, after McCoy became the 879th running back, by unofficial Daily News count, to elude the second-day training-camp pass coverage of a pursuing linebacker. Some Eagles described the touch as more of a hard bump, in what was supposed to be a noncontact session.

There are no two more intriguing sports figures in Philadelphia these days than Chip Kelly and Sam Hinkie. No one else comes close, and the two of them are fascinating for the same reasons. No one else wields as much influence over any of the city's four major franchises as these men do, and no one else has shown the same willingness to flout the conventional wisdom of his respective sport. The Eagles held their first training-camp practice Saturday - exactly one month after the NBA held its annual player draft - so it seemed an appropriate time to point out the philosophical line that separates two of the town's teams from the other two. It's a stark divide, and Kelly and Hinkie are the cause of it. On one side are the Phillies and the Flyers, who have long believed their reluctance to change, their adherence to tradition, is a strength.

RICHMOND, Va. - DeSean Jackson's first training camp practice with the Washington Redskins ended around 11 a.m. Thursday, but Jackson stayed on the field. He took extra throws after other players filed to the locker room. Once he finished, Jackson walked to the ropes that held back fans three or four deep. He signed autographs and posed for photos. It was those fans' first time to see the former Eagles receiver as a Redskin, and Jackson tried to endear himself to a group he once tortured with touchdowns.
