NEEDLESS TO SAY, the Eagles' starting defensive secondary next September will look very different from the one that lined up against Washington last week. There's a good possibility safety Malcolm Jenkins will be the only returnee from a not-so-fab four that has given up the league's fourth-most touchdown passes (29) and the second-most pass plays of 30 yards or more (25). Cornerback Bradley Fletcher will be a free agent, and, well, he has a better shot at winning the Nobel Peace Prize than being offered another contract by the Eagles.

FOR MORE than a few of the 75 players on the Eagles' roster, tonight's game at the Jets will be the last time they will pull on a football jersey, the end of something they've devoted their lives to since they were in elementary school. That is a serious and solemn thing, even as we roll our eyes at the idea of having to watch a preseason game minus starters, to be contested at least partly among men who will never play a down in the NFL. The cutdown to the regular-season roster limit of 53 by 4 p.m. Saturday looms.

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.

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.

RE ANNIE Cohen's Sept. 21 Rant of the Week: Annie, as an avid Eagles fan myself, I can completely sympathize with you about the longing for "it" to finally be "our year. " Here's the reason you'll always be an Eagles fan and never give up on them: Passion! What you are feeling is simply disappointment - I go through it every year myself. But how many things can inspire this much passion for you, me or the millions of other Eagles fans? We should be so lucky! Cowboys? Please . . . Scott M. McElroy, Huntingdon

WE'RE OFTEN asked to make the tough decisions here at the Daily News editorial board - knotty judgment calls like who to endorse for mayor and whether picnic tables at LOVE Park are a good or bad thing. So now that the paper has declared this Eagles week in anticipation of the season starter, we feel it's important that we lay out exactly where we stand on the team. No flip-flopping here! We're for: Touchdowns. We're against: Injuries. We believe: In Brian Westbrook.

FOXBORO, Mass. - The Eagles' coaches and scouts head for Mobile, Ala., today for Senior Bowl practice with the top personnel job under head coach Chip Kelly still unfilled. Over the weekend, one candidate was crossed off the list when the Texans promoted Brian Gaine to director of player personnel, pretty much to avoid losing him to the Birds. Miami personnel exec Chris Grier and Jacksonville exec Chris Polian remain in the running, along with Seattle's Scott Fitterer, in addition to in-house candidate Ed Marynowitz.

NEARLY 2 WEEKS have passed since the Eagles gave coach Chip Kelly total control of personnel, announcing in the process that Kelly would be hiring a new day-to-day personnel executive. Under the new setup, former general manager Howie Roseman, now an executive vice president, supposedly will handle contracts and the salary cap. But how will that work, exactly - will Kelly make the decisions on the broad parameters of deals, with Roseman handling the details? Or does Kelly tell Roseman, "I'd like to have so-and-so, if you and his agent can make the numbers work"?

STOP DREAMING. There is no way the Eagles can move up high enough in the draft to get Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. The Heisman Trophy winner might indeed be the perfect quarterback for the system of Eagles coach Chip Kelly. And now that he is the Eagles' newly anointed grand pooh-bah of football matters, Kelly may indeed be willing to do whatever it takes to move up in the draft to select Mariota. But Kelly does not operate in a vacuum. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold the top pick in the 2015 draft, and they are not dropping 19 spots in the draft in a deal with the Eagles.

For coaches, players and fans, the final month of the 2014 Eagles' season was difficult to endure. But Matt Barkley, better than most, was able to put it all in perspective. The backup Eagles quarterback, after all, had learned how to survive suffering from one of the world's leading authorities. In 2009, while a Southern Cal freshman, Barkley met and befriended Louis Zamperini, the ex-Olympian whose almost unimaginable World War II horrors were the basis for the phenomenal best-seller Unbroken . "He spoke to our class - we all had no idea who this old guy was," Barkley said.

CHIP KELLY'S fingerprints are all over this game. He obviously coached and recruited Oregon's upper-classmen, before coming to the Eagles after the 2012 season. But Kelly also is good friends with Ohio State coach Urban Meyer. They have exchanged concepts, philosophies and probably recipes at least since Meyer was at Utah (2003-04) and Kelly was an assistant at New Hampshire. "For Chip Kelly, to create a culture - and [Bill] Belichick talks about it all the time - where everyone's aligned.

Over all those sultry training-camp afternoons in Tuscaloosa, all those midseason practices to prepare for Auburn or Florida or another SEC power, all those pro days for the dozens of prospective draft picks that Alabama produced, Greg McElroy could never get over the way so many NFL scouts listened so closely to Ed Marynowitz. "It was captivating how many people went out of their way not only to say hello, but also talk to him with notepads out," McElroy, who quarterbacked the Crimson Tide to a national championship in 2009, said in a phone interview.

The Eagles are expected to interview Seahawks director of college scouting Scott Fitterer for their executive personnel vacancy, according to ESPN. The report said that Fitterer would interview this week. Seattle beat visiting Carolina, 31-17, in an NFC divisional playoff game Saturday night. The Eagles haven't confirmed reports during the search for a new senior scout. Fitterer has been in his current post since 2010, and in that span the Seahawks drafted 13 starters, according to the team's website.

Whenever Devon Adams steps onto the basketball court, she thinks she should dominate. It is that simple. At 6-foot-3, the freshman center for Bishop Shanahan is not being cocky. It is just what she expects from herself. "I just really feel like every time I go out there I have to dominate," Adams said after Shanahan's 42-34 win at Downingtown West. "It doesn't matter how old I am. " In just her 11th varsity basketball game, Adams is a matchup problem for virtually any team.

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.
