Doug, you can do it. You can color outside the lines of the Andy Reid blueprint. Don't do it just to be different or out of hubris. Do it because you analyzed one of the Reid's long-established habits, concluded that it wasn't effective and found a better answer. For example, Reid's offensive play-calling arrangement is cumbersome. When Reid has called plays as head coach, both with the Eagles and Chiefs, he has radioed the call to his offensive coordinator, who has in turn passed it along to the quarterback.

The smallest Eagle, Allen Rossum, is now the smallest Green Bay Packer. The Eagles traded the speedy, diminutive return specialist yesterday for what could turn out to be a fourth-round draft pick. That's not bad for a fourth cornerback and kick returner whose spot primary duties will be carried out by off-season acquisition Brian Mitchell. With tomorrow's roster deadline looming, teams around the NFL tried to get something in exchange for players a cut above being cut. Along with the Rossum deal, the Eagles were working on a trade that would take care of their logjam at quarterback.

There was a moment, just one moment, when Doug Pederson let himself want to quit. He was back home in Monroe, driving a truck for one of those package delivery companies, and the Dolphins were on the phone again. The same Dolphins who had released him four times before. Somebody was hurt. Could he come to Miami? Somebody was always hurt, but then Somebody would get well again and Pederson would be back in Monroe, humping cardboard boxes and throwing passes to his brother to stay in shape, haunted by the quarterbacks on television who had no more ability than he did but still found a way to be Somebody.

Doug Pederson gets it. He understands how much equity he built up with Eagles fans by throwing the touchdown pass that beat Dallas on Sunday. "It will last right up until the next game," Pederson said. That's also true of Pederson's status with Andy Reid. The head coach said yesterday that he would continue to handle his quarterback situation the same way. Pederson will start over rookie Donovan McNabb but will still be subject to Reid's hook. "That's entirely up to me," Reid said.

It's time for Plan B. In Andy Reid's original plan, Doug Pederson would be able to step right in and apply his knowledge of the West Coast offense in live-game action. Donovan McNabb would watch and learn early, then gradually take over as the Eagles' starting quarterback. Pederson will start next week in Buffalo, Reid said yesterday, but the coach made it clear he benched his handpicked starter because of mistakes Pederson made in reading and reacting to Tampa Bay's defense Sunday.

Andy Reid set the tone for his tenure as Eagles head coach yesterday, introducing Doug Pederson as his starting quarterback. Doug who? If that's the first question on the lips of Eagles fans, it's understandable. At 31, Pederson has never started an NFL game. For most of his six seasons - two-plus in Miami, three-plus in Green Bay - Pederson has been a No. 3 quarterback, two heartbeats behind stars Dan Marino and Brett Favre. For the last two years, his position coach was Reid, who was hired last month to coach the Eagles.

For a top-of-market $6 million, the Eagles signed backup quarterback Chase Daniel to finish, at most, one game this season. The Eagles would prefer if Daniel never played a game. It would imply that starter Sam Bradford was healthy for all 16 games. Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson would gladly throw away $6 million of insurance - Daniel is promised $12 million over the next two years - for that kind of guarantee. But the Eagles are far from assured a full season from Bradford let alone a herculean feat that will compensate for the team's deficiencies and keep them competitive throughout.

After Bobby Hoying was traded to Oakland yesterday, fellow quarterback Koy Detmer was typically common-sensical. "I guess it means I've got the third spot all by myself," Detmer said. Finally, that reality can be acknowledged. Detmer and Hoying, Eagles roommates through training camp, were cast as competitors for the third spot behind Doug Pederson and rookie Donovan McNabb. Really, though, both Hoying and Detmer knew Hoying was being shopped and he was the one who probably would be leaving, since Detmer enjoyed a modicum of success late last season as Hoying sank to the NFC's depths.

A weekly look at how the Eagles have fared under coach Andy Reid continues with Week 5, 1999: Though the 13-10 win over Dallas on Oct. 10 marked Reid's first victory as head coach, it always will be remembered more as "the Michael Irvin" game. The Eagles offense broke a drought of 18 quarters without a touchdown when quarterback Doug Pederson hit Charles Johnson with a 28-yard pass with 1:07 remaining in the game. Bobby Taylor clinched the win by intercepting a Troy Aikman pass in the final minute.

Out in Santa Clara, the San Francisco 49ers players are falling all over each other praising the new head coach who doesn't make them fall all over each other very much. Practices are loud and fast, but they don't last too long. Sometimes they are off the field in an hour or 90 minutes, and the contact is limited. The players are happy, at least with that part of it. Let's see how long it lasts. Meanwhile, back in Philadelphia, the Eagles and their new head coach are on the field for three hours most days, the very limit allowed by the collective bargaining agreement, and they tackle to the ground in live sessions.

DOUG PEDERSON stepped up to the microphone at the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday with a couple of pages ripped from the Andy Reid playbook. First he ducked the most anticipated answer of the day, the apparent timeline discrepancy over Lane Johnson's account of when he informed team officials of his PED violation and when the coach learned of it. Then, in addressing the trade for Dorial Green-Beckham, a talented athlete with a troubled past, he conjured the...

The Eagles will play their second preseason game Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers without starting wide receiver Jordan Matthews and starting linebacker Mychal Kendricks. The team also will miss quarterback Carson Wentz, defensive tackle Mike Martin, cornerback Jalen Mills, and wide receiver Hunter Sharp. Wentz and Mills are out for their first games. The other players were absent for the opener. Matthews has a knee injury and Kendricks has a hamstring injury. Coach Doug Pederson is hoping both players are ready to return next week against Indianapolis.

Carson Wentz's preseason debut for the Eagles will come in the third quarter of the opener Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Wentz will watch Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel play the first half before taking the bulk of the snaps in the second half, coach Doug Pederson said Monday. "He's been exposed to all the situations in practice. It's just now execution," Pederson said. "I want to see the timing, the accuracy, and the decision-making with him. I want to see him being able to move our offense.

One of the potential annoyances of being a first-time head coach - especially one who has as little NFL coaching and play-calling experience as Doug Pederson - is that each of your limited on-record decisions will be scrutinized with Zapruder-like precision. When Pederson took ownership of the play-calling on the Chiefs' final possession in their playoff loss to the Patriots, the time-consuming drive had already been dissected. But it was assumed at the time that Andy Reid, who had authored his share of snail-like marches, was the source of Kansas City's lack of urgency.

NELSON AGHOLOR won't make excuses, so we'll make them for him. It wasn't easy to be a wide receiver in Chip Kelly's offense. It wasn't easy to be anything, really. No player has said that explicitly, but the space between their lines keeps getting easier to read the further out we get from the old ball coach's departure. Take Agholor, for instance. On Tuesday afternoon, the 23-year-old wideout deflected a number of questions that asked him to compare Doug Pederson's West Coast offense with Kelly's manic spread scheme.

During the first few minutes of the Eagles' rookie minicamp practice last Friday, Doug Pederson did what everyone expected him to do. No, he did not rock to the gentle groove of the Ghost Town DJs' "My Boo," the first song to play at Pederson's first practice as the Eagles' head coach. Instead, he focused his attention entirely on quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Everett Golson, crossing his arms and eyeballing them as they went through a series of elementary drills: dropping back, pantomiming handoffs and play-action passes, tossing the football to a nearby member of the coaching staff.

THERE WAS a moment during Eagles practice on Tuesday when Carson Wentz lined up in the shotgun and tentatively pointed toward the middle of the defense, the way quarterbacks often do when they are identifying the MIKE linebacker. Whether that is actually what Wentz was doing is besides the point: What's relevant is that the young quarterback turned around and looked at coach Doug Pederson, who was standing behind him with a play sheet in his hand. Pederson nodded to confirm that the rookie was correct in whatever he was pointing at, and the play commenced.
