PAT SHURMUR said that when the Eagles went into halftime down 17 points and looking lifeless, "the message was, 'Let's go put a fish in the box. Let's get a score, and then get it going.' " Several large, shiny fish had wriggled off the offensive coordinator's hook in the course of the worst half of football Nick Foles has ever played as an Eagle; last season's Pro Bowl quarterback turned the ball over three times in the first 20 minutes, one...

When the Eagles first learned of their workweek schedule under new coach Chip Kelly, there was a little confusion. Kelly had an order to the week that he had honed at Oregon and wanted to bring to the NFL. But it meant going against the league norm and shuffling schedules for many veterans who had become accustomed to business as usual. Mondays were like Tuesdays. Thursdays were like Fridays. And Saturdays and Fridays flip-flopped. But there were so many other changes that it took some time for players to adjust.

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 EAGLES wanted $15 million up front from Temple before they would allow the football team to play in the stadium. Temple is a school that is just developing its football program in the modern era. It is a mainstay for the impoverished student with a large number of scholarships and a liberal student loan program. I would not have become a lawyer if it was not for Temple's reasonable cost 40 years ago. Now the Eagles want to ransom Temple University to allow it to play football in the new stadium.
