  Befuddled line The Eagles have given up a league-worst 11 sacks in just two games this year and looked befuddled by blitzes last week. Can the line patch itself together enough to give Michael Vick some time to throw?   More McCoy Lost in the quarterback drama has been Shady McCoy, who is coming off the best running game of his career. He said Michael Vick's presence in the backfield helps because defenses have to keep an eye on the quarterback, too. How does he follow up last week's 120-yard, three-touchdown outburst?

Judging by her shy expression, 2-year-old Raechelle Walker-Ellis might have felt a little goofy about meeting Minnie Mouse at John Wanamaker's in Center City yesterday. But she managed to steal the show anyway from the veteran Disney character.

AS THE FATHER of a Philadelphia policeman, I'm outraged at the judicial system. We've lost five officers in 2 1/2 years at the hands of low-life career criminals who have worked the system. When will it stop? The D.A. says this man (I use this word loosely) is a career criminal, so why was he on the street? Police arrest them and the judges let them out. He was arrested twice in the last two weeks once with a shotgun and bench warrant and they let him out with no bail. It's time for all citizens of Philadelphia to band together.

The Eagles, now 2-1, are in sole possession of first place in the NFC East after thumping the Jaguars in Jacksonville, 28-3. Although the Dallas Cowboys won their first game of the season Sunday, the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants lost their second straight games. Dallas revived its season with a 27-13 victory over the Texans in Houston. The Cowboys have a bye next week. The mistake-prone Giants fell to Tennessee, 29-10, as New York missed two field goals, turned the ball over twice on drives inside the Titans' 6-yard line, gave up a safety, and committed five personal fouls.

The state police corporal, trained to find marijuana plants while flying hundreds of feet in the air, had received an unusual assignment: help Philadelphia police with traffic control during the SEPTA strike. So, for the last few weeks, Douglas Brigham has flown his helicopter daily from Reading to his new assignment. But this week, old habits - five years' worth - took over. And apparently paid off. On Monday evening, police said, Brigham spotted a Philadelphia man tending 22 marijuana plants behind Cedarbrook Mall near the Cedarbrook Hill Country Club.

The Eagles kept pace with the Redskins and Giants atop the NFC East and now prepare to play Atlanta at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday. The Redskins climbed out of a 10-point, fourth-quarter hole to beat the Packers in overtime to keep their share of first place. The Giants held on to their piece of the division lead as Eli Manning threw two of his three TD passes to Hakeem Nicks. The Giants held Houston to a franchise-low 24 yards rushing. Meanwhile, the Cowboys - in last place in a season they entered with Super Bowl hopes - made mistakes in all phases of the game and reverted to their losing ways against the Titans.

A COLLEGE coach suggested Cody Parkey log his kicks. So Parkey did that, then expanded on the idea, making it into a kind of kicking journal, from practices and games. "Along with your makes, you can learn off what you miss, as well," Parkey said yesterday. Parkey and the Eagles are preparing to visit Parkey's former team, the Indianapolis Colts. (At 22, the rookie barely looks old enough to have a former razor, let alone a former team, but he was in camp with Indianapolis until he was traded here Aug. 21)

FEAR NOT, FANS. As today's 4 p.m. start of NFL free agency edges closer, a source close to the situation says the Eagles are "very interested" in a defensive back who has been to the Pro Bowl. Of course, corner Corey Graham made that Pro Bowl trip as a special-teams player a few years back, but let's not get too picky. Graham, 28, played at New Hampshire when Chip Kelly was there. If you watched the Baltimore Ravens' drive to the Super Bowl a little over a year ago, you know he's not a star, but he's a solid cog, a good guy to have in your mix. His utility work with the Ravens suggests that he could play safety, primarily or just here and there.

MOBILE, Ala. - A year after they passed on drafting a traditional 3-4 outside linebacker, the Eagles appear primed to fill a need after spending a season with converted defensive ends at those spots. Ideally, the Eagles want outside linebackers who can rush the passer, set the edge, and drop into coverage on both sides. That versatility poses challenges for opposing offenses. The Eagles had one good option in free agent Connor Barwin last season. Trent Cole, who started on the other side, had a good year, even though he was asked to move from end to linebacker.

IT'S UNCLEAR exactly how many people were still watching the Eagles' 31-22 preseason-opening loss to the Patriots on Friday when Greg Salas made the catch of the evening, on the next-to-last snap. With 13 seconds remaining, undrafted rookie quarterback G.J. Kinne chucked a long pass down the middle to Salas. It was overthrown, but Salas reached up with one hand, snagged it and tumbled to the turf at the Patriots' 2, a 35-yard gain. The final 13 seconds of preseason contests generally belong to guys whose tape of themselves playing against the bottom of some other team's 90-man roster will serve as a career highlight.

This is a post by Les Bowen on the Daily News' Eagletarian blog. CONSIDERING THE central role Andy Reid played in the Eagles' slide to a rebuilding team coming off a 4-12 season, it's only fair that Andy should offer them a helping hand, all the way from Kansas City. Reid's Chiefs on Wednesday released right tackle Eric Winston, a big free-agent signing a year ago from Houston who didn't get off to a great start in his new home. (Geez, that story line seems familiar, can't imagine where I might have heard it before.)

THIS EAGLES offseason has largely been about giving Juan Castillo the tools to succeed. If the Birds' 2012 defense blows fourth-quarter leads, can't tackle and frequently looks confused, it won't be because of personnel that doesn't match the scheme, or offseason work lost to a lockout, or a lack of size and talent up the gut. There will be only one person to blame. Well, two, actually - if the defense falters, Castillo probably will lose his job the same day Andy Reid bids farewell, since it was Reid who made the former offensive line coach the defensive coordinator, and Reid who kept him in place after last season's wobbles and stumbles.

Here are some things to look for when the Eagles visit the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday:   Coughing it up The Eagles' league-worst 35 turnovers are the most the team has had since the 39 they committed in 1999, Andy Reid's first season as head coach. They are on pace to finish with 40, which would be the most in franchise history since the Eagles coughed up 43 in 1991.   The Babinator Just three games ago, Jason Babin stood at a very respectable 10 sacks.

Here are things to look for when the Eagles face the Redskins on Sunday.   Turnovers On the field, turnovers have been the biggest story of the season for the Eagles. They have coughed up the ball 15 times, including five giveaways against the Bills last week that killed their chances for a win. Michael Vick has 19 turnovers in his last 11 games, including 10 in just five games this season. He has to hold on to the ball Sunday against a fierce pass rush and ball hawk DeAngelo Hall.

INDIANAPOLIS - Compared with Eagles president Joe Banner's media tour last week, general manager Howie Roseman's session with reporters yesterday at the NFL scouting combine was kind of tame. Roseman didn't set any deadlines for coaches to win the Super Bowl, he was reluctant to even acknowledge the possibility of trading Kevin Kolb, and he drew no parallels between the Birds and any other franchises. Roseman did strongly indicate that the Eagles, who neglected the offensive line in last year's draft, won't do so again, given what Roseman and many other observers consider a much deeper pool of o-line talent.
