The Eagles might have all three of their running backs available for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, or they might have only one. That's the uncertainty they face with Darren Sproles and Chris Polk on the injury report. But the healthy running back is the one they need most: LeSean McCoy, who is coming off his best game of the season. "With Darren or with Chris, I still get a lot of loads of carries, and I play a lot," McCoy said after practice Wednesday. "Hopefully we get the guys healthy.

PERFECT SNAPS. Perfect holds. No excuses. That was the tune Cody Parkey was singing in the Eagles' locker room after the team's 36-10 preseason victory over the visiting Indianapolis Colts yesterday. Parkey was asked whether the NFL's 13-yard extension of the line of scrimmage on extra-point opportunities was to blame for his missed attempt following a 9-yard touchdown run by Kenjon Barner in the first quarter. The second-year placekicker wasn't having it. "Doesn't affect me at all," he said of the rule change.

Philly native Audrey Landers has a little something up her sleeve as she prepares for a return to her hometown for Yachtstock on the banks of the Delaware River this coming weekend. Yachtstock River Jam, in its 17th year, is one of the more popular summer concert series in the five-county region and benefits children's charities. Landers told me during a recent phone interview that she may even do a little number just for fun - something from "Dallas," perhaps. But it's Landers' son, Daniel Landers , who's in the spotlight this go 'round.

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.

IT WAS every Sunday, Curtis Bunche said. Bunche and his son, Malcolm, would - like thousands of other Eagles fans - sit in front of the television and watch their beloved team. Malcolm loved watching Eagles greats like Tra Thomas, Brian Dawkins and Hugh Douglas. "A few times we did go to the game," Curtis Bunche said. "But we enjoyed it more so at home in front of the television than actually sitting in the stadium. That was every Sunday his entire life, really, growing up. " Now, Malcolm has a chance to wear an Eagles helmet on Sundays.

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.

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.

Sam Bradford watched the Eagles' preseason opener in shorts and a T-shirt, postponing the most anticipated August attraction. So the 2015 preseason commenced the way the 2014 season concluded - with Mark Sanchez as the team's starting quarterback. Sanchez struggled Sunday in the only two series he played in the Eagles' 36-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts at Lincoln Financial Field. The quarterback who might have been most impressive was third-stringer Matt Barkley, although fourth-stringer Tim Tebow led in fan interest.

Kenjon Barner returned to the sideline after a 68-yard punt-return touchdown Saturday to share a moment with Chip Kelly. The Eagles' coach, who also coached Barner at Oregon, delivered a message to one of the team's preseason standouts. "He was happy for me, but he told me, 'You don't reach the ball,' " Barner said. "I said, 'You're right, I apologize.' So that's what that moment was about. " Barner carried the ball with one hand for the final 10 yards of his return, which could make a killjoy out of any coach.

ON SATURDAY night, former West Catholic star Jaelen Strong caught a pass from Cardinal O'Hara product Tom Savage in the Texans' 14-10 loss to the Broncos. In May, the Texans drafted Strong in the third round. Last year, they selected Savage in the fourth round. Strong has caught two passes - both thrown by Savage - in preseason action, including a 10-yard TD toss in a Week 1 win over the 49ers. The two could conceivably hook up in the regular season if Strong makes the team, and if Savage - currently the third QB behind Bobby Hoyer and Ryan Mallett - sees action.

THE MOST significant moment of the Eagles' season so far occurred late Saturday night, when Sam Bradford strode through the short corridor from the locker room and bounded into the Lincoln Financial Field interview room, following a 40-17 preseason victory over Baltimore. Bradford had taken two big hits in his 12-play, 14-snap debut as the team's starting quarterback, including one that drew a 15-yard, low-blow roughing penalty on the Ravens' Terrell Suggs. Yet Bradford emerged unscathed, and maybe more important, unflustered.

WHEN THE Eagles signed Rasheed Bailey as an undrafted free agent in early May, it made for a nice, sweet, local-boy-makes-good story, even if the kid's chances of making it to the 2015 regular-season starting line with the team seemed somewhere between slim and none. The Roxborough High product had been an NCAA Division III pass-catching scourge at Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, leading the nation in receiving yards (1,707) and touchdown catches (19). Set the school record for career receiving yards (3,138)

SIX TIMES on Saturday, Sam Bradford displayed why Nick Foles had to go. It's the same reason the Sixers had to draft Joel Embiid. Anyone who watched the examples of Embiid's nearly supernatural abilities during his yearlong rehab from foot surgery - the silky jump shots, the nasty dunks - understood that a man of his size, strength and athleticism comes along once in a generation. There have been Wilt Chamberlain, Hakeem Olajuwon, and, now, this guy. He is strong and will be stronger; he can run with an extra gear; he can jump with the body control of a man a foot shorter; and, not to be minimized, he can shoot, for some reason a rare skill among 7-footers with those other gifts.

KENJON BARNER'S streak of preseason games with at least one punt return for a touchdown stands at two, following the Eagles' 40-17 strafing of the Baltimore Ravens Saturday night. This time, Barner got the ball on the right side, near the Ravens' bench. He didn't have to run backward, as he did on Pat McAfee's boomer the week before against the Colts, but just as on that return, the Ravens' punter outkicked the coverage. Ed Reynolds, E.J. Biggers and Jeff Maehl all made blocks that gave Barner room to accelerate and maneuver.

Sam Bradford waited 364 days to play 235 seconds. One series covering 12 plays, and the quarterback's preseason debut with the Eagles on Saturday night was over. It was more of a pop quiz than an endurance test for the twice surgically repaired left knee that limited Bradford to seven games during his final two seasons with the St. Louis Rams. He was pleased to have passed it. "I was excited. I was nervous. There were a lot of emotions," Bradford said after the Eagles' 40-17 preseason rout of the Baltimore Ravens.

Sam Bradford wanted to take a hit Saturday night. The Eagles quarterback never could have imagined the first one he withstood. On the sixth snap of Bradford's only drive in the Eagles' 40-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens, Bradford handed the ball to Darren Sproles. After the handoff, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs lunged into the left knee of an unsuspecting Bradford. It was the same knee that required two surgeries and is the biggest variable in the Eagles season. "You would have to ask him, but I think that's what he was trying to do," Bradford said.

There's a reason it's called a "monster. " When you have three running backs of near-equal skill but with varying skill-sets rotating in and out of an offense, the net effect can be a frightening one for a defense. On Saturday night the Eagles gave a glimpse of what their three-headed monster might look like with DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews, and Darren Sproles sharing the load. And it was an effective beast - if not yet scary - in the 40-17 preseason win over the Ravens. Chip Kelly's one-quarter teaser hinted at myriad possibilities within his explosive offense with Murray, Mathews, and Sproles splitting snaps and sometimes even being on the field at the same time.

The Eagles will continue to wait to show how they will handle the three-man inside-linebacker combination of Kiko Alonso, DeMeco Ryans, and Mychal Kendricks. All three missed the Eagles' 40-17 win on Saturday. They also sat out the preseason opener. They each practiced this past week, although they were partial participants. Alonso returned on Tuesday from a concussion that sidelined him almost two weeks. Ryans is still recovering from a torn Achilles tendon last year, and Kendricks has been dealing with a hamstring injury, according to a league source.
