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.

AN HOUR OR SO after being drafted second overall by the Eagles on Thursday night, Carson Wentz was joking with reporters about sleeping on an air mattress in the living room of a Fargo, N.D., house he shares with five roommates and their three dogs. Wentz's life is changing in a hurry. He has talked about not being overwhelmed by going from Fargo to Philly, from quarterbacking in the Football Championship Subdivision to the NFL. But these early months as the franchise's savior-in-waiting will be chaotic, disorienting.

The most important player (arguably) on the Eagles defense didn't earn his starting spot until two weeks ago. He spent almost all of the offseason rehabbing a broken ankle and wasn't 100 percent back until three weeks ago. He signed a one-year, incentive-laden contract in March and has never started an entire season. Little is guaranteed in the NFL, but he has spent his career toiling in the shadows of others. He isn't flashy and speaks softly, which is probably why his story has been undersold.

On the Monday after Easter, Ron Wingenbach welcomed Eagles scout Anthony Patch to Century High School in Bismarck, N.D. Patch's trek to the center of the Great Plains state wasn't part of some quest to visit all 50 capitals. He was here for one reason - Carson Wentz. The Eagles had finished their on-field evaluation of the North Dakota State quarterback, but they sent Patch to meet with Wentz's high school coach to cross off any final concerns they may have had about character.

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.

MALCOLM JENKINS' heart belongs to his wife Morrisa. But his arm belongs to his college frat. On the back page of Monday's Daily News was a picture of Jenkins having just picked off a pass from Tom Brady in the Eagles' 35-28 win over the Patriots and was about to dash 99 yards for the longest touchdown of his career. Within staff photographer Yong Kim's wonderful picture is what looks like a large tattoo on Jenkins' biceps. "It's a brand, really," Jenkins said. "It hurt for about four seconds and then the nerves were burned off, basically, and I couldn't feel it anymore.

Offensive Backfield Carson Wentz, QB: The Eagles made a blockbuster trade before the draft to acquire Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick, and their initial plan was to keep Wentz on the bench while developing this season. When they traded Sam Bradford last weekend, Wentz's timetable was accelerated - even though he missed most of the preseason with a hairline fracture in his ribs. The future is now for the franchise quarterback. Chase Daniel, QB: Daniel had been linked to the Eagles from the day Doug Pederson was hired as head coach, and the former Kansas City Chiefs backup quarterback followed Pederson to Philadelphia when he signed a three-year, $21 million contract.

The $160,050 in cash and gifts District Attorney Seth Williams belatedly decided to report raises a host of ethical, if not legal, questions for the city's top law enforcement officer. But one gift in particular stands out for its sheer sense of entitlement: two sideline passes Williams received to five years' worth of Eagles home games. Even more breathtaking: After Williams finally got around to disclosing the gift pile that dates back to 2010, he had the gall to claim the Eagles passes had "no face value.

EAGLES QUARTERBACK Carson Wentz and his coaches talked this week about blocking out the noise - not getting caught up in the hoopla surrounding Wentz's excellent debut last week against the Cleveland Browns. Monday night, that concern becomes literal, as Wentz faces his first NFL road game, in front of 61,500 fired-up Chicago Bears fans in the national spotlight of Monday Night Football. Wentz told reporters last week that up until now, the loudest, most hostile crowd he has encountered was at the University of Montana, where he and the North Dakota State Bison lost, 38-35, in their 2015 opener, a loss they avenged later on, en route to the Bison's fifth successive FCS title.

CHICAGO - Sunday, three Miami Dolphins protested during the national anthem before their game at New England, as five San Francisco 49ers joined quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his protest at Carolina and a pair of Tennessee Titans raised their fists before playing in Detroit. In Denver, linebacker Brandon Marshall took a knee for the second week in a row. Monday night, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins plans to add his name to the protest narrative Kaepernick started last month, Jenkins planning some sort of gesture when the anthem is played before the Bears host the Birds, the Eagles' defensive leader said over the weekend.

THE EAGLES and Lane Johnson have accepted the prospect that Johnson will reportedly serve a suspension for violating the NFL policy against performance-enhancing drugs. They've been ready for more than a month. It was early August when word got out that Johnson had failed a PED test and was subject to a 10-game suspension as a second-time offender. On Monday night, the Eagles will play the Chicago Bears in the second game of the season, with Johnson scheduled to start at right tackle.

Carson Wentz's second game will be more difficult than his first. The Bears have more talent than the Browns, and Wentz must introduce a silent snap count to combat the difficult road environment he'll experience at Soldier Field. Also, he's playing without reliable tight end Zach Ertz. That makes Monday's game a good test for Wentz, who is trying to become the fifth rookie quarterback to start 2-0 since 1970. Wentz will need to rely on his wide receivers in their matchup against the Bears secondary.

Jalen Mills knows he will be a target on Monday. A seventh-round draft pick who is expected to receive significant playing time, Mills will be matched up against the Chicago Bears' top wide receivers. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will likely look in his direction - and by the end of the night, it will be clear whether the Eagles' confidence in Mills is valid. "He showed up ready, to be honest," safety Malcolm Jenkins said. "At least in his mind. I think that's the biggest thing on the outside as a corner: You've got to have really tough skin and a lot of confidence.

A major emphasis in practice leading up to the Eagles' game Monday against the Chicago Bears has been a silent snap count. The Eagles are expecting a raucous prime-time crowd at Soldier Field for Carson Wentz's first road game, and the rookie quarterback must execute the offense even when it's difficult for teammates to hear him. "We expect it to be a loud environment," Wentz said. "We expect it to be an exciting environment. We're going to have to work on some silent snap counts.

Like everyone who follows the NFL closely, the players on the Eagles defense know pretty much what people say about Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. This is what people say: He hasn't won anything. He throws interceptions when harassed. He doesn't like to get hit. He went to the sideline and stayed there during the biggest game of his career. He gives off an apathetic vibe that spawned the internet meme Smokin' Jay Cutler, in which the quarterback drifts through games with a cigarette dangling indifferently from his sullen lips.

Malcolm Jenkins did not yet know what he will do during the national anthem Monday night before the game against the Chicago Bears, but the Eagles safety plans to make some type of demonstration. He ruled out kneeling and locking arms. He does not know how many teammates will join him. And he expects to make the demonstration every week this season. Jenkins, who is one of the more socially aware Eagles, closely followed how players from other teams made gestures during the national anthem last week to raise awareness of racial injustice.

If Sam Bradford hadn't been traded, Carson Wentz would have spent the last two weeks watching Bradford and Chase Daniel take all the quarterback repetitions at practice. He would have had a subservient role to the starter in meetings. He would have answered questions at his locker rather than from a podium in front of a dozen cameras. And he wouldn't have played and had success in the Eagles' 29-10 season-opening victory over the Browns last Sunday. Even if Wentz had struggled and the team had lost, just having the experience would have been a positive step in the rookie's development.
