One day during the 2012 offseason, Marty Mornhinweg turned on the college tape of Nick Foles and liked what he saw. So he walked down the second floor corridor at the NovaCare Complex and into Andy Reid's office. "I said, 'Have you seen this Foles kid?'" Mornhinweg said recently to The Inquirer. "So he watches him, likes what he's watching and says, 'Where's Doug?'" Doug Pederson, the Eagles quarterback coach, was on the road. He was working out other quarterbacks and by coincidence was scheduled next to be in Phoenix to visit Brock Osweiler, the 6-foot-7 Arizona State quarterback.

Glenn Frey, 67, the Detroit-born singer who co-fronted the Eagles, the archetypal and massively popular 1970s Southern California rock band, and with Don Henley made up one of the most commercially successful songwriting teams in rock history, has died. Mr. Frey, who sang many of the band's biggest hits, including "Peaceful Easy Feeling," "Already Gone," "New Kid in Town," and "Take It Easy" (which he cowrote with Jackson Browne), died Monday in New York City of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia, according to the band's website.

JUST AS FANS started to get good and worked up about the Eagles' inactivity in the early hours of free agency, the team dropped a load of signings on the reeling Twitterverse. Five new Eagles joined the roster, though they weren't the splashy, top-of-the-market guys some fans always seem to want, in the face of solid evidence that trying to build a winner that way doesn't work. The signings reflected what general manager Howie Roseman and new coach Chip Kelly said in the weeks leading up to the opening of the market: The Eagles need players, as they transition from the Andy Reid era to new systems.

1 Steve Van Buren. The best ever. How do you judge? How do you cross eras and compare? Just what is universal, what is the tipping point, what is the criteria for such an honor as being named the best ever for a franchise that has existed for more than seven decades? Championships. When it comes down to it, the game of football is about winning championships, and no one was more instrumental in bringing not one, but two championships to the city of Philadelphia than Steve Van Buren.

The Eagles' plan for handling the Riley Cooper situation became clear Tuesday. There is no plan. There never was. The team acted quickly to fine Cooper for his videotaped racist threat, then ducked low and hoped it would all blow over. The assumption that Cooper went to some kind of sensitivity training or counseling program appears incorrect. The Eagles excused him from team activities on Friday so he could "seek assistance. " Coach Chip Kelly said there was no timetable for Cooper's return.

WITH A NEW COACH comes roster upheaval. That's just a fact of NFL life. Take a good look at the Eagles' season-ending roster, because no matter who Jeff Lurie ends up hiring as his new head coach, it's going to change. A lot. In Chip Kelly's first season in 2013, he kept just 29 Andy Reid holdovers. By Week 1 of 2014, the number had shrunk to 22. Currently, there are just 12 Big Red survivors still calling the NovaCare Complex home. Since we don't yet know who the new coach is going to be, or what kind of offense or defense he's going to run, or whether Lurie's back-in-power football operations chief Howie Roseman believes the Eagles can be a playoff contender next season or need to rebuild, it's difficult to predict which players will be staying and which ones probably have played their last snap in midnight green.

THE FAMILIAR figure, phone pressed to his ear, briefly appeared a room away, through the double-glazed glass of the front door. He quickly ducked out of sight when the reporter obeyed the neatly lettered note covering the nonworking doorbell on the spacious front porch of Chip Kelly's Haddonfield home, and knocked. A yellow labish-looking dog trotted through the tiled hallway up to the door and barked. A second knock brought Jill Cohen, Kelly's companion since their days working at the University of Oregon.

Jeff Fisher promised the Nick Foles era was not over in St. Louis after the Rams coach announced he had benched the former Eagles quarterback Monday, and that's probably true. You have to believe Case Keenum, the undrafted QB du jour for the Rams, will make it possible for Foles to start again before the season is over. This, of course, is no time for the Eagles or Chip Kelly to gloat about the trade that brought Sam Bradford to Philadelphia from the Rams. The Eagles, their coach, and their quarterback have enough issues of their own, including a 4-5 record that is identical to the disappointing mark that helped send Foles to the bench in St. Louis.

SAN JOSE , Calif. - Evan Mathis has made it to the Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos, but in a touch of irony, the credential that he was wearing around his neck Monday at "Super Bowl Opening Night" still had his Eagles head shot on it. "When I first got there (to Denver), they Photoshopped this picture for all the Broncos' use," Mathis said. "And it had me with an orange jersey. But for some reason, in this one, I'm still wearing (Eagle green). " Things have worked out very well for the 34-year-old guard.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - For a 6-foot-5, 300-pound man with a high-ankle sprain, Evan Mathis deftly sidestepped questions about Chip Kelly, the Eagles, and whether he felt vindicated since the coach who released him has since been fired while he is playing in Sunday's Super Bowl. "I'm trying to avoid headline, bold-quote things," Mathis said. "Just dancing around. What else do you got?" While both sides ultimately lost something when Kelly decided to release Mathis - the Eagles lost a Pro Bowl lineman, and Mathis lost money - the Broncos guard ultimately chose to play for a team that gave him an opportunity he had yet to have in his first 11 NFL seasons.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Sean McDermott might not have gotten a formal interview with the Eagles for their head coaching vacancy, but the Panthers defensive coordinator said that he spoke to the team early in the process. "We did talk," McDermott said Monday during Super Bowl media night. "We had some preliminary talks. It was clear from the beginning they wanted to go offense. " McDermott said he spoke to Howie Roseman, the team's vice president of football operations, the day after the regular season ended.

If you were Sam Bradford, and you had other options, would you want to come back to the Eagles? I might. If you were Sam Bradford, and you had other options, would you want to come back to the Eagles? It would depend a lot on the options, which are hard to evaluate right now. If the Houston Texans, who have DeAndre Hopkins, Bill O'Brien and J.J. Watt, would like to pay me the market rate for a starting quarterback, and the Eagles' aren't gonna franchise me, then hasta la vista, Haddonfield, N.J., point me to the correct exit off Houston's Southeast Freeway for River Oaks.

MAURICETOWN, N.J. - It is perhaps one of the greatest success stories in wildlife conservation - the resurgence of the bald eagle in New Jersey and throughout the United States. And next Saturday, more than 1,000 people are expected to gather at a rural fire hall here and at several outdoor viewing sites to celebrate a species that in 46 years has gone from being on the brink of extirpation to thriving in the Garden State. "It's kind of amazing when you think about how many people will come out for an event that is held in the dead of winter in such a rural location which has a very narrow focus," said Leslie Ficcaglia, chairwoman of the 16th annual Cumberland County Winter Eagle Festival.

WHEN HE WAS taken fourth overall by the Eagles in 2013, Lane Johnson had a feeling the franchise saw the left tackle position in his future. He'd played it in college, and, with a talented but aging Jason Peters at left tackle, it seemed he could be a natural successor. With the news Friday that the Eagles signed Johnson, 26, to a new six-year deal that locks him up through 2021, his move to the left side of the offensive line could be nearing. "I think that's what they drafted me for," Johnson said Friday.

Some shows preserve their particular time and place as in perfect, stagecrafted amber. Others - such as Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's Assassins , currently airing its dirty laundry at Hammonton, N.J.'s tiny Eagle Theatre - seem to gain new facets with age, reflecting the current cultural landscape whenever they're revived. So it is that while Hamilton 's American forefathers just up the turnpike aren't giving away their shot, the better to build a nation, on the other coast, the Malheur Wildlife Refuge occupiers attempt to tear it down.

Brent Celek couldn't sleep on Monday night. It was his 31st birthday, and the details had been finalized on a new three-year deal. Celek put pen to paper on that contract Friday. The Eagles tight end called it "one of the greatest days of my life. " Celek signed contracts that were more lucrative than this deal, which a league source said pays him $13 million, with $6 million guaranteed. But this deal likely ensures that Celek will finish his career where it started. "This is the greatest city to play for in the NFL," Celek said.

He saw Charles Woodson, Richard Sherman, Adrian Peterson and the other brightest stars in the NFL. It was validation for Jenkins, the Eagles safety who received a Pro Bowl invitation Monday night for the all-star game on Sunday. Each day this season, Jenkins walked through the corridor at the Eagles' practice facility that is adorned with pictures of the franchise's all-time Pro Bowlers.

MOBILE, Ala. - The Eagles interviewed Steelers pro scout coordinator Brandon Hunt for their top personnel vacancy this week at the Senior Bowl, an NFL source said. Steelers president Art Rooney told Pittsburgh reporters that his team granted the Eagles permission to talk with the 35-year-old Hunt. The scout met with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and vice president of football operations Howie Roseman on Wednesday. Lurie announced last week that the Eagles would begin their search for a "personnel head.
