Howie Roseman took a seat on the set of his radio show at Chickie's & Pete's in South Philadelphia on Monday afternoon with noticeable euphoria among fans in attendance and callers who wanted to chat with the Eagles' general manager. Roseman was hit with requests for autographs and photographs. He discussed some of the key acquisitions during the offseason. One caller praised his role in hiring Chip Kelly. Roseman, who is the only NFL general manager with a radio show, has sat in that chair during less friendly times.

IT WAS MIDNIGHT in the locker room after the sixth game of the season. An Eagles tight end had scored two touchdowns in a shutout of the Giants. You would have thought Brent Celek scored both. He scored neither. "Hey, congratulations!" Celek hollered at James Casey, who had a football tucked under his arm - the football he caught for a touchdown that might otherwise have been Celek's. "See him?" Celek asked, unprovoked, pointing at another teammate. "He made unbelievable catches all night tonight.

When Josh Huff was drafted, the rookie wide receiver looked at the Eagles roster and knew it was going to be difficult to crack the starting lineup. The team had released DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant, but it had also re-signed Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper and drafted Jordan Matthews a round earlier. Maclin and Cooper would start on the outside and Matthews would be given every opportunity to replace Avant in the slot. But where did that leave Huff, whose Oregon pedigree was almost as prominent as Matthews' was at Vanderbilt?

USUALLY AFTER five games or so, an NFL team has formed an identity. Five games into the Eagles' season, the identity is this: Amorphous. The Eagles, now 4-1 after a 34-28 win over the Rams (1-3), are a special sort of dangerous. They have an offense that can sting opponents, but they have developed a penchant for big plays on special teams and defense that overcome their stars' disappearance and untimely turnovers. "It's big that we're 4-1," said left tackle Jason Peters, who, in his 11 NFL seasons, has seen sloppy play and injury issues doom other squads.

NICK FOLES was the best deep-ball thrower in the league last year. He had an impressive 124.0 passer rating on throws that traveled 20 yards or more. The Eagles quarterback completed 45.4 percent of his deep throws (25-for-55), averaged 14.6 yards per attempt and threw 14 touchdown passes and only one interception on 20-plus-yard throws. That was better than Manning, better than Brees, better than Rodgers, better than everybody. So far this season, though, it's been a different deep-ball story.

IT IS THE hardwired nature of a fully predictable beast; that panic should ensue after an overachieving, decent team fails to win a close game. There will be second-guessing of play-calling, complaints about inexperience and, worst, willful ignorance of reality. It is why sports is so compelling: lack of logic. Even if they had remained fully healthy the Eagles would be lucky to be 3-1. As it stands, they are outrageously fortunate. They don't have an unwinnable game left on their schedule until the Seahawks visit Dec. 7, and by then their offensive line might be whole again.

Cary Williams was quieter this time. He was one of the last players to dress in the Eagles locker room Sunday after their 26-21 loss to the 49ers, and this time there would be no rambling monologue about Chip Kelly or a team's tired legs, none of the nonsense that poured out of Williams the week before. Then, he had picked the happy aftermath of a dramatic victory over Washington to paint himself as the only man in the room brave enough to tell hard truths about Kelly's demanding practice schedule.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - "I'm not talking about running the football," LeSean McCoy said, after it was over. "I don't even want to talk about that. Any other questions?" And so we begin, with the disappearance of the Eagles' running game. Whether we talk about it or not, it is now officially a big problem. On a day when the Eagles got two special-teams touchdowns and a third touchdown on an interception return, they still lost to the San Francisco 49ers, 26-21. A chance to start the season with a 4-0 record was squandered.

There are a couple of ways to view what has taken place with the Eagles in the first three weeks of the NFL's regular season. It is either a team with serious issues that somehow was able to overcome them in the three straight comeback wins but can't be that fortunate forever, or it is a team that simply hasn't hit its stride yet and won't require such dramatics when it finally does. You decide, because anyone's guess is good at this point. The 3-0 start has arrived in such bizarre fashion that the Eagles, while they'll take it, don't have any answers, either.

They walked to the center of the field as captains, but Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson were no longer teammates. It wasn't just the different uniforms they were wearing that made the brief meeting an unusual one. The Eagles have one-game captains. The Redskins have three season-long captains and pick an additional two for each game. You can be certain their respective teams selected Maclin and Jackson because of the meaning it had for each wide receiver. Jackson was returning after six seasons with the Eagles and an unceremonious release.
