Andrew Gardner was a member of the Texans for three years, and in just 10 games for the Eagles this season he has already played five times more than he did in Houston. The offensive lineman has seen action in eight games at three different positions and is likely to earn his third start of the season when the Eagles host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Gardner began the practice week as the first-team right guard while Matt Tobin recovered from a concussion. Tobin was cleared to return Thursday and has been a full participant since, but he has been with the second team and could stay there if Gardner performs well in his place.

ZACH ERTZ sat down with his tight-end coaches, Ted Williams and Justin Peelle, in deep despair just a few weeks ago, Ertz said yesterday. Ertz's 30 catches for 430 yards and two touchdowns through 10 games aren't adding up to the breakthough year to stardom many observers predicted, the year Ertz expected of himself. In fact, Eagles coach Chip Kelly, asked yet again yesterday why Ertz isn't getting more snaps and catches, basically told reporters it's because 8-year veteran Brent Celek is still a better all-around player, and a better fit for Kelly's offense.

THE SUN shone brightly in eastern Pennsylvania yesterday, a dazzling change from the Monday-morning hangover weather: endless clouds and drizzle, brought, perhaps, by the rainmaker passes thrown by Aaron Rodgers. By yesterday the region was well into recovery from post-Packers malaise; buoyed, perhaps, by a thrilling Steelers win in Nashville against the team that visits Philadelphia on Sunday. Yesterday might have been bright, but it was bone-chilling; a fitting circumstance, considering the cold reality that confronts the Eagles as they come down the homestretch.

Sitting in a booth atop Lambeau Field on Sunday, Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis considered making a change as he watched starting cornerback Bradley Fletcher become a frequent target of Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers. Davis ultimately decided to keep Fletcher in the game and was encouraged by the way he played in the second half. Fletcher is starting again on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. "Yes, he is," Davis said Tuesday. "Absolutely. " Fletcher was not available for comment.

Old friend DeSean Jackson took to his Instagram account after the Redskins lost to Tampa Bay on Sunday and posted the following observation: "You can't do epic [stuff] with basic people. " The stuff between the parentheses is the stuff he is usually full of, just so nothing is lost in translation, and the saying itself is plagiarized from many Internet sites, but nevertheless Jackson had a point when it comes to winning and losing in the NFL. All that changes from one team to the next is the definition of "epic.

LOOKS AS IF the Redskins have more problems than their politically incorrect nickname. On Sunday, quarterback Robert Griffin III shared his frustration after a 20-point loss to the visiting Buccaneers that dropped the 'Skins to 3-7. "It takes 11 men," said Griffin, who threw two interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown. "It doesn't take one guy, and that's proven. If you want to look at the good teams in this league and the great quarterbacks, the Peytons and the Aaron Rodgerses, those guys don't play well if their guys don't play well.

David Golkow, 16, figures he has been on athletic teams since he was 4 and involved in sports since he can remember. He says he's never been bullied, but over the years, he's heard hurtful things said to others. He's an admirer of former Eagles star DeSean Jackson and the work Jackson's foundation has done to combat bullying. But then, in the summer before his sophomore year, David discovered Bully , a wrenching documentary about the abuse some children face. An idea took root.

THE FRANCHISE has been around since 1933, and in that time, only four wide receivers have appeared in more Eagles games than Jason Avant, who buckled his chin strap here 116 times over eight seasons. He was never a star, but in his prime, Avant, a fourth-round draft pick in 2006, was a key third-down target and an example of selflessness coaches hoped younger players would follow. Avant spent so much time after practice catching balls from the JUGS machine, it would have been fitting for the team to bolt a plaque to the base commemorating his dedication, after he was released last spring.

THE LATE Al Davis was obsessed with speed. Always took the wide receiver or defensive back with the fastest 40 time, regardless of production, intelligence, hands or length of rap sheet. His fondness for guys who could fly was why the Raiders inexplicably selected Darrius Heyward-Bey with the seventh pick in the 2009 draft, a curious decision that ultimately allowed Jeremy Maclin to fall to the Eagles 12 picks later. When it comes to wide receivers, Chip Kelly cares more about size than speed.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - There's no crime in being pretty good. Consider Canada; even Americans agree their neighbors are all right. Malaysia isn't Singapore, but it's hard to have a bad time in Kuala Lumpur. Sweden and Norway get all the press, but you might actually come out smarter if you're raised in Finland. There is no häpeä in hailing from Helsinki, no shame having kinfolk in Calgary. So, too, there is nothing wrong with being an Eagle; nothing wrong with being pretty good.
