THE EAGLES have not won a championship in 50 years. Fifty! Five-ohhhh. Half a century. Four owners, 11 coaches, a covey of quarterbacks, three ball yards, two Super Bowl appearances and a mascot that looks like a partridge in a pear tree. Yogi Berra once said, "When you come to a fork in the road . . . take it!" Is that what the Eagles have done for the last 50 years, come to a fork in the road, picked it up and jabbed it into an eye? Or simply zigged right when they should have zagged left.

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.

FORMER PHILLIE Lenny Dykstra is filing another lawsuit. This time, according to TMZ, he's claiming suffered brain damage when he was allegedly beaten by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies while serving time for grand theft auto. Lenny's asking for a cool $15 million. Dykstra claims that in April 2012, six sheriff's deputies slammed his head against the wall and broke several of his teeth. A sheriff's spokesman is on record as saying officers had to restrain Dykstra after he became aggressive.

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.

AS WORD has spread that New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams paid his players bonuses if they took out the opposition - which is to say, injuring them with intent - it came as no surprise to Eagles fans of a certain age. The so-called "Bounty Bowl" between the Eagles and Cowboys in 1989 has become a staple of team lore. To revisit what happened that Thanksgiving Day: In the aftermath of a hard hit by Eagles linebacker Jessie Small on Cowboys placekicker Luis Zendejas - who left the game with a concussion - Dallas coach Jimmy Johnson alleged that Eagles coach Buddy Ryan had placed a $200 bounty on Zendejas.

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

Fletcher Cox received a message this week from a teacher in his hometown of Yazoo City, Miss. The teacher assigned her students to write what they wanted to be when they were older. Six wrote "Fletcher Cox. " "You get a lot of kids back home that's like that, and it's a lot of kids that look up to me," Cox said. "I look at it as this is where I came from. And I try to put it through so many young kids' heads that you can make it out of Yazoo City. I tell them if you have the 'want to.' You have to have a plan.

From the moment he joined the Eagles as a front-office intern in 2000, fresh from Fordham Law School, Howie Roseman spent his formative years as an NFL executive helping his mentor usher in a revolution and bearing witness to the bitter fallout. As the Eagles' president then, and with Roseman working alongside him, Joe Banner pioneered the two-pronged strategy that became a staple of business in a salary-cap world. The Eagles would sign players whom they perceived to be part of their long-term future to cost-effective contracts, and they would be willing to say goodbye - maybe a little too soon - to some of their most popular, respected, and expensive veterans.

There's a stuffed bald eagle giving a wild turkey a little side eye at a museum on Independence Mall, a stern look of "Don't make me fly up there. " In the United States of America, the bald eagle is most definitely the boss, the symbol of our nation, even though Benjamin Franklin preferred the gobbler over that snowy-headed raptor. On June 20, 1782, the Second Continental Congress voted to make the bald eagle a national symbol, and 200 years later, President Ronald Reagan deemed June 20 "National Bald Eagle Day. " "Whether silhouetted against the sky on a rocky pinnacle in Alaska or soaring majestically overhead in Florida, the bald eagle is admired as one of nature's most spectacular creatures," Reagan said in a proclamation at the time.

A COUPLE beads of sweat topped his forehead and a huge grin was impossible to hide. Meet Fletcher Cox, Eagles star defensive tackle and the richest man ever to come out of tiny Yazoo City, Mississippi. "It's mind-blowing," Cox said of the six-year, $103 million contract he signed on Thursday. "When you're dealing with that much money, it's really mind-blowing, and I'm really excited about it. " Ya think? Cox, the best athlete currently playing in Philadelphia, reportedly received a $26 million signing bonus with $63 million of the deal guaranteed.

No matter how you or I or Howie Roseman or Doug Pederson or Tom Condon came down on the question that has defined the Eagles' offseason and will define their future - what should this team do at quarterback? - everyone could agree on the discussion's underpinnings. Everyone understood the choices that the Eagles, in pursuing and acquiring Carson Wentz, would have to make, the smaller questions implicit in that bigger one. Taking Sam Bradford's playing career and injury history into consideration, would it be smarter to commit to him than it would be to go after the No. 2 pick in the draft and, in turn, Wentz?

We will frame the question and look at it from multiple angles, bringing you opinions from a sports staff unmatched in its experience. The Agenda will run occasionally, only in the Daily News. Les Bowen If I had to bet this question, my money would be on Rodney McLeod. McLeod is assured of starting at safety for the Eagles if he's healthy, and he's played in every game since he arrived in St. Louis as an undrafted free agent from Virginia in 2012, so the odds are with me there.

Sam Bradford hosted Zach Ertz and Jordan Matthews at his Oklahoma home in March for a football version of spring break, and now the three of them plan to join other teammates for summer vacation in San Diego during the week of July 4. Vacation is a relative term in this case. It will be summer workouts and off-field bonding with quarterbacks and skill position players. It's similar to what a group of Eagles did last summer, but the group includes all three quarterbacks this year, with Bradford, rookie Carson Wentz, and backup Chase Daniel participating.

With the exception of whatever comes over the police scanner, the Eagles are entering radio silence for the next six weeks, with new head coach Doug Pederson having maneuvered the team well enough through one phase of a transition that still holds a few hazards. More than anything, what Pederson has brought to the team, along with a jaw line that could cleave concrete, is a sense of comfort and familiarity. At the locker room level, he speaks the language of the players and doesn't trouble them with nonsense about wearing sleep monitors at home, or tracking their ergonomic efficiency through the day, or pushing them at a pace that negates learning and becomes pointless busy work.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - West Deptford's John Oehler has been coaching high school baseball for 10 years. Parsippany coach Ken Dobkin is a 17-year veteran. Neither had seen this before. "Not to end the game," Oehler said. "I've never heard that from an umpire, 'Changed my mind,' " Dobkin said. West Deptford led Parsippany, 2-1, in the bottom of the eighth inning of the NJSIAA Group 2 championship game Saturday at Toms River East. Parsippany had a man on third with one out. Tommy Nowicki chopped the ball to short.

" At a news conference Friday afternoon at Police Headquarters, police spokesman Lt. John Stanford declined to identify the person under investigation because no charges had been filed.
