MOBILE, Ala. - If the Eagles were to draft Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith, known for his capabilities as a vertical threat, they might evoke some comparisons to DeSean Jackson. But Smith said yesterday he's more interested in emulating Jackson's successor as the Birds' top receiver. "I watched Jeremy Maclin a lot, especially when he was at Missouri," Smith said after yesterday's North team Senior Bowl practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. "He's a very smooth, smooth runner - just sassy when he runs.

THE FINAL GUN had hardly sounded before the tweets began. Jeremy Maclin was campaigning to come back. Trent Cole was begging to stay. Maclin, the Eagles' best receiver since they took him in the first round in 2009, can hit the open market and cash in on a career season. Cole, ranked second on the team's all-time sack list, is due more than $35 million over the next three seasons. Maclin sounds willing to forgo free agency and, possibly, take a little less Treasury green to stay in Eagles green.

Chip Kelly said that Bill Davis would return next season for a third year as the Eagles defensive coordinator. "I thought Billy did a really good job," Kelly said on Monday, a day after the 10-6 Eagles ended the season. "I thought our defense improved in a lot of categories. There's still things we need to clean up. " The first question of Kelly's news conference was about Davis. The Eagles coach, however, made it clear throughout the rest of the session that the team had yet to make final evaluations on the 2014 season.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - LeSean McCoy lay on the turf with the medical staff checking his left knee late in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 34-26 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. McCoy initially feared it was something serious, based on the way he went down. Other players knelt around him, hoping it wasn't. McCoy eventually arose and limped off the field on his own power. He wanted to go back into the game, but the clock was winding down by that point. The Eagles' Pro Bowl running back avoided a scare.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Odell Beckham Jr. snagged Eli Manning's pass by the sideline, cut toward the middle of the field past safety Malcolm Jenkins and, after strutting backward the final 10 yards leading to the end zone, fired the ball at the wall that separates the field from the stands at MetLife Stadium. The explosive rookie's 63-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown didn't end up factoring into which team won and which team lost yesterday's meaningless Week 17 game, but it accentuated yet another woeful performance from the Eagles' most-maligned position group.

Last Saturday was certainly the final meaningful day of the year for the Eagles, but the way the season was destined to end, whenever it ended, was determined to a large extent by three other days: March 28, May 8, and Nov. 2. Some of what happened on those days was bad decision-making in retrospect - always the handiest way to judge things - some was bad luck, and some was a combination of the two. All of what transpired on those three days, however,...

When you've been given a starting secondary with below-average talent, when the last two drafts have produced only one regular out of nine selections, when the offense forces you to be on the field longer than any other defense in the NFL, you should be graded on a curve. But Bill Davis should not get a pass for the Eagles' December meltdown, particularly over the last two games when Bradley Fletcher was torched and it seemed the defensive coordinator was the only one to not realize that a change needed to be made.

Chip Kelly said he has not determined who will start Sunday at the left cornerback spot usually filled by Bradley Fletcher. Fletcher was benched late in the Eagles' 27-24 loss to the Washington Redskins on Saturday after DeSean Jackson burned him for two deep passes. The Eagles return to practice on Tuesday. Fletcher has struggled in recent weeks, and the coaching staff said he lost his confidence on Saturday. Kelly said there were no indications of shaken confidence entering the game.

BRADLEY FLETCHER, who still looked haunted yesterday, said he didn't know whether he will start in Sunday's meaningless season finale against the New York Giants. Practice was "pretty much the same," said the Eagles' much-vilified cornerback, who added: "I'll know by the end of the week. " That was what defensive coordinator Bill Davis had told reporters earlier yesterday, that he would decide by the end of the week whether to start Fletcher for the 16th time this season, or go with either Nolan Carroll or Brandon Boykin.

LANDOVER, Md. - DeSean Jackson cruising downfield, unimpeded, relishing his vengeance ... that will be the visual epitaph of this lost Eagles season. Other images frame this central picture. Jeremy Maclin, still fully dressed in front of his locker 45 minutes after the season's worst loss ... Marcus Smith, the first-round pick, pulling on his shoes next to the shower entrance, anonymous at the end of a fruitless first season in which his fellow defenders constantly struggled ... LeSean McCoy, fuming that he had endured another backfield beating because the Birds can't go deep ... Bradley Fletcher, in street clothes, finally benched and fleeing the scene faster than he ever pursued a receiver ... Cary Williams, Fletcher's co-starter since last season uniformed, mute but likely free next month to go sconce shopping ... Jeffrey Lurie, hiding in plain sight at the back of the tiny visitor's locker room ... Chip Kelly, quietly thunderstruck on a podium, defeated by his own arrogance as he admitted that DeSean Jackson, who he cut, cannot be stopped.
