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.

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.

If anyone was wondering when the NFL and the media who cover it would reach peak absurdity over Sam Bradford, wonder no more. The apex of ridiculousness in this entire affair was reached Tuesday - not at the NovaCare Complex, but 3,000 miles to the west. In Seattle. There, Michael Bennett, a defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks, was a guest on the Brock and Salk show on ESPN 710 AM. During the interview, Bennett, who is unhappy with his own contract and considered holding out last season, was asked about the Eagles' decision to move up to draft Carson Wentz and Bradford's reactions to it: his request to be traded and his subsequent two-week absence from the Eagles' voluntary team activities.

Chase Daniel is, quite literally, the quarterback in the middle of Sam Bradford and Carson Wentz, at least in the locker room. He's sandwiched in between the current starter and the presumptive future starter on the depth chart. His locker stall splits the two, with Bradford to his left and Wentz to his right. Daniel is the forgotten figure in the Eagles' quarterback drama, and yet, his role may be just as essential over the next two years. The veteran is to be Bradford's backup, Wentz's teacher, and quite possibly, the stopgap starter if one of several variables were to happen.

Darren Sproles is not at the Eagles' practices this week and has not attended any voluntary workouts, coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday. Sproles is spending the spring with his family and is expected to attend the mandatory minicamp next month. "He and I are in direct communication," Pederson said. "We have been talking all offseason and I have no issues with Darren. I fully expect him to be here for the mandatory camp. But again, this is a voluntary program, so I can't fault him for [not]

J UST ABOUT every word Sam Bradford said rang true, until we got to the very last question of Bradford's 13-minute session with reporters Tuesday at NovaCare. "No," Bradford said, when asked if he had any regrets about the way he and agent Tom Condon handled the Eagles' move to trade up to second overall in the draft and select quarterback Carson Wentz. Bradford and Condon requested a trade, and chose to make that request public, presumably to pressure the Eagles into moving Bradford to Denver, where Condon has said he thought there was considerable interest.

WHILE SAM Bradford still may be Public Enemy No. 1 around much of Eagle Nation for having the audacity to miss two weeks of the team's voluntary workouts and requesting a trade after the Eagles moved up to the second spot in the draft to select Carson Wentz, there was nothing but love for him inside the locker room at the NovaCare Complex Tuesday. "He's still the leader of this team," tight end Zach Ertz said after the Eagles finished up the first of 10 voluntary OTA practices over the next three weeks.

DARREN SPROLES and Fletcher Cox were the only healthy Eagles who weren't present for Tuesday's first full-squad optional workout under new coach Doug Pederson. Cox is sitting while agent Todd France negotiates with Howie Roseman on a long-term contract to replace the $7.799 million option year from Cox's rookie deal. Sproles' absence all offseason has drawn less scrutiny. The Eagles said earlier that Sproles was not attending for "personal reasons," and there was a report that Sproles, a versatile running back who turns 33 in June, wanted to coach his son's track team this spring in California.

Carson Wentz became the Eagles' biggest name before taking his first NFL snap - or even practicing with his new teammates. The first snap must wait, but the first full-team practice comes Tuesday. The quarterback completed rookie minicamp over the weekend, a setting in which he clearly had the biggest presence. But when the Eagles begin their first organized team activity Tuesday, Wentz will be joined by teammates with years of experience who know him only as the rookie the team surrendered five draft picks to acquire.

ON PAPER AT LEAST, On paper at least, the Eagles' running-back picture heading into this week's first round of spring OTAs is more say what? than Cezanne. There is injury-prone Ryan Mathews, who averaged 5.1 yards per carry last year, but lugged the ball only 106 times and had more than 11 carries in only two games. There is 5-6, 190-pound Darren Sproles, who turns 33 in mid-June. There is Kenjon Barner, who has all of 34 career rushing attempts. And there are three talented but untested rookies - fifth-rounder Wendell Smallwood (West Virginia)

A LL ACROSS the field at the Eagles' indoor facility Friday, small groups of players congregated around position coaches. This was rookie camp, with just 55 participants, including tryouts, so some of the clumps contained only a few guys, some as many as half a dozen or so. Then there was the mob at the far end, presided over by offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland. A total of 10 beefy gentlemen pivoted and twirled under Stoutland's command. At one point he had to shift the entire bunch several yards to the right because the guy on the end closest to the sideline couldn't perform the pulling maneuver asked of him without going out of bounds into a cluster of reporters.

After Alex McCalister arrived at the NovaCare Complex, he heard references to another Florida defensive end with a similar build who used to play for the Eagles. They told McCalister about Jevon Kearse - or, as McCalister has heard, "The Freak. " He has a long way to go, but McCalister, the Eagles' seventh-round pick, has the frame and pass-rushing potential to elicit those comparisons. McCalister is 6-foot-6 and 243 pounds with 36-inch arms and an 86-inch wingspan. His 121/2 sacks over the last two seasons for the Gators, even though he played fewer than 40 percent of the snaps, showed one skill that the Eagles crave.
