The calls from the 303 area code began to pop up not long after the Eagles signed Tim Tebow this spring. Radio stations wanted to know how Philadelphia was handling Tebowmania. Colleagues from other newspapers and websites wanted to grasp the enormity of the media blitz that was certainly engulfing the Eagles beat. Kinda quiet, actually, they were told, and this really disappointed them. Denver in 2010 and 2011 was ground zero for one of the most divisive quarterback controversies in recent memory.

Eighteen months after signing guard Stacy Andrews to a six-year, $38.9 million deal, the Eagles traded the offensive lineman to Seattle for a 2011 seventh-round draft pick on Saturday. That was one of handful of deals the Eagles made as they met the NFL-mandated roster limit of 53. The Eagles also obtained defensive end Antwan Barnes from Baltimore and sent linebacker Tracy White to New England. Both transactions involved future low-round draft picks. Andrews played in just 10 games for the Eagles last season, two as the starting right guard.

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.

YOU ARE going to hear a lot about Cam Newton over the next few days, but the best player on the Carolina Panthers lines up on the opposite side of the ball, so if you are going to spend your weekend worrying about ways the Eagles can lose on Sunday night, start with Luke Kuechly. He wears No. 59, and here is why he matters: Remember in Week 2, when the Eagles' offense looked incapable of moving the ball up and down the field against the Cowboys? If not, go down to your local playground and watch a toddler try to run. It won't be a perfect approximation, but it will be close.

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.

ATLANTA – Wasn't it hilarious Sunday night, watching the Giants and Cowboys outblunder each other? Nearly fell off the couch laughing, didn't you? That would be the same couch you tried to heave through the living room window at halftime last night, with the Eagles – so obviously the cream of the NFC East, until they actually had to go out and play -- fortunate to be down "only" 17 points in what became a 26-24 season-opening loss to the host Atlanta Falcons, who began the evening as slight underdogs.

Training camp begins in July.

PRETTY WOMEN in high-heeled, rhinestone-trimmed sneakers girl-tossing a pink football to each other. That's what I halfway expected to see the night I went to watch Philly's lingerie football team do some off-season conditioning. Boy, did I have it wrong. If they started out in makeup, they'd sweated it off by the time I got there. In fact, there was nothing the least bit glamorous about the Philadelphia Passion players I saw at 7 Deuce Sports, in Medford, N.J., last week. The women, whose team is part of the recently renamed Legends Football League , were hitting it hard, to the point that a few were hobbling.

Carson Wentz might be the third-string quarterback, but he's taking the same number of practice repetitions during the Eagles' offseason workouts as if he were the starter. Coach Doug Pederson said last week that Wentz received equal work during team drills as Sam Bradford did with the first-team offense and Chase Daniel did with the second-team offense, and its's expected to continue when the Eagles begin their second week of organized team activities on Tuesday. That accounts for a "few more reps" than a third-string quarterback typically would receive, according to Pederson.

THEY MANAGED to tiptoe away from the scene without attracting a lot of notice, in all the hubbub over Carson Wentz breaking a rib and Lane Johnson facing a possible 10-game PED suspension, but the Eagles' wide receivers were awful in last Thursday's preseason opener. The longest reception by a wideout went for 10 yards. It belonged to Paul Turner, an undrafted rookie from Louisiana Tech, who also was the team's leading receiver for the evening, with six catches for 34 yards. The two longest receptions went to tight ends - 19 yards to Zach Ertz and 16 to M.J. McFarland.

A COACH MUST play to his strengths. But if you're Doug Pederson and offensive coordinator Frank Reich, what are they right now? Is it an offensive line that is likely to lose its right tackle for 10 games for his second PED offense in three years, and might have to throw a third-round rookie to the wolves at left guard? Is it a wide receiving corps that is starting to look as if it might be no better than it was a year ago, when it had only one player with more than 27 catches? Is it a running back group whose best player has durability issues and whose second-best player is 33 years old and is a better receiver than he is a runner?

LANE JOHNSON said he hasn't thought yet about where he'll go, what he'll do. Suspended players can't enter the practice facility or speak with coaches. Two years ago, during his first suspension, Johnson Skyped and texted with then-offensive linemate Todd Herremans, who isn't here anymore. For now, just having to make it through practice, knowing he is unlikely to play a real game before Nov. 28, takes pretty much everything Johnson has. "Mentally, it's probably the toughest thing, when you're going to be out there going through the motions, and you're not going to be (starting the season)

On the list of trouble spots for the Eagles this season - a list that is lengthy at the moment - the running back position isn't at the top but not for a lack of potential problems there. When the offensive line is in serious disarray, the receivers are lackluster, and the defensive secondary is still suspect, it's difficult to focus on a position that has proven players, even if they have asterisks attached to their names. Before the season is over, however, maybe before it starts, the run game will climb the list again.

OVER THE last three seasons, the Eagles' defense was on the field for a total of 3,411 snaps. That's 71 snaps per game, which - surprise, surprise - was far and away the most in the NFL over that period. Connor Barwin was on the field for most of them. As an outside linebacker in Billy Davis' two-gap, 3-4 scheme, he played 3,189 of those 3,411 snaps, or 93.5 percent. And lived to tell about it. Not only lived to tell about it, but played pretty damn well. Had 21 1/2 sacks the last two years and was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2014.

Two summers ago, Allen Barbre spent the entire training camp playing right tackle on the Eagles' first-team offensive line. Lane Johnson was scheduled to miss the first four games because of a suspension, and the coaching staff prepared Barbre to replace him. Two summers later, Barbre had been trying to keep his starting left guard spot for the second straight season. But after the news broke about Johnson's looming 10-game suspension, Barbre is back at right tackle as Johnson's replacement like he was in 2014.

The Eagles continue to miss starting linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who has been out since last Monday with a hamstring injury. Coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that he expected Kendricks back at practice by the weekend, but Kendricks was absent both Saturday and Sunday. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said the team does not want to rush Kendricks back to the field. "Mychal is a very, very conscientious player and he works very hard off the field," Schwartz said. "So he's getting all the mental reps and he's staying up and he's asking a lot of questions.

THE FIRST TWO kickoffs in the Eagles' 17-9 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday landed a few blades of grass shy of the goal line. On the first, Kenny Bell fumbled Caleb Sturgis' kick at the 16-yard line. On the second, Donteea Dye returned Cody Parkey's kick to the 25-yard line. All that mattered to special teams coach Dave Fipp was getting Tampa Bay's returners out of the end zone. In the offseason, the NFL changed the way it handles touchbacks on kickoffs. Instead of a touchback bringing the ball to the 20-yard line, the offense starts at its own 25-yard line, a 25 percent increase in field position.

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.

With applause percolating throughout the stadium, Carson Wentz extended his right thumb into the air when he entered the Eagles' 17-9 preseason win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers late in the first half on Thursday. It could have been interpreted as a gesture expressing approval to the fans cheering him. Except that's not what it was. "It was thumbs-up to Coach," Wentz said, referring to Doug Pederson. "He was asking if I could hear him. Probably not as cool as you thought it was. " When it comes to Wentz, myth-making could be an easy trap.
