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.

For many fans, the replica NFL jerseys they've been purchasing in ever-growing numbers since the 1990s are religious vestments. Donned with faith on Sundays, imbued with spiritual significance, their unique color and design reveal their wearers' sectarian leanings, their communion with fellow believers. Alter these sacred garments and you risk being tarred as a heretic. If Eagles supporters needed a reason to dislike Jeffrey Lurie - and this being Philadelphia, antipathy toward ownership is as natural a state as low expectations - he provided them with a solid one not long after purchasing the team in 1994.

Some numbers that mattered in the Eagles' stunning 35-28 upset of the Patriots: 128.4 Sam Bradford's third-down passer rating against the Patriots. Third down has been a black hole for Bradford and the Eagles this season. The Eagles quarterback was ranked 29th in the league in third-down passing (57.6 rating) and the Eagles were 27th in third-down efficiency (34.4 percent) going into the New England game. Bradford had completed just 48.9 percent of his third-down passes, had averaged a league-worst 4.01 yards per attempt and had converted just 26.1 percent of his third-down passes into first downs.

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

The longtime home of the Red Eagle Tavern near Cherry Hill Mall has sold on speculation of future development at the site, real estate services firm Markeim Chalmers Inc., which brokered the transaction, said in a statement Tuesday. Markeim Chalmers said the buyer, identified as a local developer, paid $2.2 million for the shuttered 10,465-square-foot bar and banquet hall on 2.5 acres at Route 38 and Chapel Avenue, inclusive of its liquor license. Kay's Red Eagle Tavern closed at the site in April after 65 years.

A BURNED-OUT Dick Vermeil did Marion Campbell no favors in January of 1983 when he abruptly resigned as the Eagles' coach and recommended to owner Leonard Tose that Campbell replace him. Vermeil left Campbell, who passed away last week at the age of 87, an aging team that was on the decline. Many of the key players who had helped the Eagles make it to the Super Bowl in 1980 were either gone or on the downside of their careers. "His head coaching experience (with the Eagles and twice with the Atlanta Falcons)

Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor will not face charges for the alleged sexual assault of an exotic dancer at a South Philadelphia strip club last month, prosecutors said Monday. In a two-paragraph statement, District Attorney Seth Williams said: "Our staff and the police reached the conclusion that we lacked sufficient evidence to bring charges against Mr. Agholor. " He offered no further explanation, though spokesman Cameron Kline said later that investigators reviewed video evidence and interviewed witnesses who were at the club the day of the alleged assault, June 9. Agholor's lawyer, Fortunato N. Perri, Jr., said Monday that he believed the District Attorney's Office and Philadelphia police had conducted a "full and exhaustive" investigation.

IT HAS BEEN a long, quiet summer. During the school year, a city in the midst of a historic run of athletic ineptitude at least gives you something to watch. Coaches get fired, general managers get replaced, players explode. But at least there's some noise. In the summer, the sound the city makes is one of silence. You walk into a bar and see TNT reruns playing on the television. Only when you check the internet do you remember there is a baseball game being played. With this in mind, let's take a moment to thank any or all of the deities or karmic energies in which we believe.

DOUG PEDERSON'S one and only year as a player with the Eagles was, for lack of a better word, interesting. Andy Reid didn't want to throw his first-round rookie quarterback, Donovan McNabb, into the deep end of the NFL pool until he felt he was ready. So, in 1999, he signed Pederson, a career backup, to hold the fort until then. Pederson ended up starting nine games that year and the fort was constantly under attack, both from opposing defenses and from Eagles fans. The fans actually were scarier than the defenses.

After traveling those great distances from innocence to manhood, from idealizing sports to covering them professionally, from passion to advocacy, Ray Didinger discovered a play. The former Daily News sportswriter found the theatrical inspiration close to where his boyhood views collided with the gritty games and athletes he chronicled, very near the place where his mind and heart were in frequent debate. Tommy and Me is Didinger's recounting of a lengthy, heartfelt, and often complex relationship with his boyhood idol, Eagles flanker Tommy McDonald.

WITH EAGLES training camp less than two weeks away, the team is eager for the sexual-assault accusation against wide receiver Nelson Agholor to be resolved. A source close to the situation, though not involved in the investigation, said Thursday that he was told Agholor will not be charged. The source also said an announcement to that effect was near. An NJ.com report Thursday said District Attorney Seth Williams is expected to decide on charges against Agholor on Friday - after an investigation by Philadelphia police determined no charges were warranted.

EAGLES ROOKIES and select vets don't report to NovaCare until July 25, but 14 Birds convened last week in San Diego, under the auspices of trainer Todd Durkin. Durkin is the fulltime offseason fitness guide for a number of NFL players, including Eagles running back Darren Sproles, who still looks quite spry at age 33. All three Eagles quarterbacks - Sam Bradford, Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel - attended the daily workouts, which began on July 4 and went heaviest through the 5th and 6th, with some players leaving the 7th, before the rest of the group finished up the next day. Durkin, speaking via phone minutes after the last Eagle left his Fitness Quest 10 facility, said that despite the scenic locale, it was a hard-work week.

EVERY MAN lives two lives: the one that was, and the one that will be remembered. With Buddy Ryan, the dichotomy between the two is beguiling to consider, particularly for those of us who remain ardent fans of his sport in this kinder, gentler era of professional football. In a way, it is a dichotomy similar to the one that exists within the ghost of each game we watch. There is Sunday as we remember it: the wins and losses, the strategic decisions, the remarkable way that physical talent expresses itself in finite space and time.
