Eagles wide receiver Greg Lewis has played plenty of night games. One of his favorites requires not the physical skills necessary on the football field, but his mental agility on a chessboard. Lewis, 24, has enjoyed the thinking man's game since childhood. Opponents are not always easy to come by, he said, so at times he has found himself awake in the middle of the night playing the game online. "I like to think," Lewis said. "I am a cerebral type of person. " Lewis, the fourth receiver in the Eagles' offensive system, has six receptions for 70 yards this season.

Wide receiver Greg Lewis scored two touchdowns in a game for the first time in his career in the Eagles' 31-9 victory over the visiting Green Bay Packers on Monday night. Lewis, 26, who became the No. 1 receiver last season after Terrell Owens was booted off the team following the seventh game, was not considered a sure bet to make the Eagles out of training camp this season. But the fourth-year receiver had a solid camp, and has nine receptions for 155 yards and the two touchdowns in the first four games.

CHIP KELLY'S fast-paced practices - er, I mean training sessions - always reminded me of one of those old TV game shows where the contestants were thrown into a toy store or supermarket with a shopping cart and given a fixed period of time to fill up the cart with as much merchandise as it could hold. Chippah was all about speed and cramming as many repetitions as possible into a two-hour practice - er, training session - window. There was no stopping for corrections or instruction, except for those very brief "teaching" periods.

HE RAN a post pattern, Greg Lewis recalls, faking a safety to the outside, digging hard inside, coming free down the middle in the end zone for the 30-yard Donovan McNabb touchdown pass. For Eagles fans, the narrative about the last touchdown drive of Super Bowl XXXIX will always be about how long the sequence took (three minutes, 52 seconds to cover 79 yards in 13 plays, or, in talk-radio lore, forever and a day) and what McNabb was doing, as the minutes dwindled (trying to recover from a hit to the ribs, or, in talk-radio lore, puking, pouting over draft-day booing, pondering what would happen in the event of a tie)

PHOENIX - Rodney Harrison remembers watching the Eagles hooping and hollering before Super Bowl XXXIX and thinking that the first-timers would be gassed in the Jacksonville, Fla., humidity by the fourth quarter. "I remember pregame warm-ups, they're coming out and you see Brian Dawkins and all those guys and all the energy," Harrison said. "You see them jumping around hitting each other, and we're just kind of laid back, chilling, [saying], 'Look at these fools over there. They're going to wear themselves out.' "And you saw Donovan [McNabb]

Doug Pederson stood with the quarterbacks, Duce Staley with the running backs, Greg Lewis with the wide receivers, and Tim Hauck with the safeties. It wasn't a game from the Andy Reid era or a reunion of Eagles alumni, but instead an Eagles practice last week. When the Eagles hired Pederson as head coach in January, owner Jeffrey Lurie emphasized that Pederson is a former player with an understanding of the city and the franchise. When Pederson assembled his coaching staff, those qualities were coveted assets.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Reggie Brown, inactive. It has happened before to the Eagles' receiver, but it is still stunning when the announcement is made before a conference championship game, the clearest of messages from the organization toward a second-round draft choice who once was going to be a star. Once. At this point, they prefer Greg Lewis to him. "It hurts," Brown said, in the losing locker room after the Eagles were beaten by the Arizona Cardinals, 32-25. "I'm a competitor . . . "To sit on the sidelines in the championship game, a place that you dreamed of as a kid, it's hard.

The Eagles filled most of Doug Pederson's coaching staff Wednesday with the addition of seven coaches and the retention of seven others. The new coaches include offensive coordinator Frank Reich. Reich, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, and special-teams coordinator Dave Fipp all have experience in their roles, which will help Pederson in his first year as head coach. In addition to Fipp, the Eagles retained running backs Duce Staley; offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland; defensive backs/cornerbacks coach Cory Undlin; tight ends coach Justin Peelle; assistant special-teams coach Matthew Harper; and offensive quality control/assistant quarterbacks coach Press Taylor.

The Eagles signed Greg Lewis to a five-year contract extension yesterday that gives them the rights to the wide receiver through the 2011 season. Details of the signing bonus and contract were not released, but the fact that Lewis received such a lengthy extension is a clear indication of how much the Eagles think of the player who made the team as an undrafted rookie last season. "Greg loves the city of Philadelphia, he loves the Eagles, and he feels they're the best organization in the NFL," said Ken Sarnoff, Lewis' Chicago-based agent.

GREEN BAY - Someone called him "an emerging star. " Jason Avant had another word for himself after yesterday's 16-13 loss to the Packers. "Bonehead," he said. Avant was referring to a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he picked up on an Eagles' punt midway through the fourth quarter, pushing Green Bay to midfield in a tie game. "It was all my fault," he said. "I can't blame the referee in any way. I almost kicked the guy. I pulled it back, but it looked like it was something.

NFL history is filled with terrific stories about undrafted players who went on to become superstars and Super Bowl winners. One of them - Kurt Warner - was even a Super Bowl MVP. This, of course, would be a good time for the Eagles to find one of those hidden gems. Having used their first-round selection on a quarterback (Carson Wentz) they hope sits and learns this season and having made just one selection (offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo) in the first four rounds on a player who might actually help them this season, the Eagles desperately need to hit on one of the 16 undrafted free agents they officially revealed Thursday.

AFTER THE PHILLIES were busted in 2010 for using binoculars in the bullpen, Jayson Werth dismissed allegations of sign-stealing thus: "All it takes is for you, as a hitter, to be given the wrong sign once. Then, you never take a stolen sign again. " After former Eagles and current Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb crowed on a radio show Tuesday about stealing signals and calling out plays to the defense from the sideline Sunday, Eagles defensive lineman Derek Landri concurred with Werth's logic.

Former Eagles wide receiver Greg Lewis has caught on with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings signed Lewis yesterday after releasing veteran wide receiver Bobby Wade. Lewis, a free agent, was let go by New England this week. The Eagles traded him to the Patriots in March for two low-round draft picks. Lewis was with the Eagles for 6 years, including Vikings coach Brad Childress' last three seasons as offensive coordinator. New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum admitted the team should have disclosed Brett Favre's torn biceps tendon on mandatory weekly injury reports over the final third of last season.

The wait is over. The quarterback has finally spoken. (Kind of.) It's been about two weeks since ESPN reported that Donovan McNabb sat down with Eagles management and demanded they upgrade the team. Since then, a lot has happened. Through it all, people waited patiently for McNabb to speak up, to tell us what he thinks about how the Eagles front office has restructured the team. After all, wasn't that the whole point of the ESPN story - that McNabb would be evaluating the evaluators?

Another star wide receiver is on the free-agent market, but the Eagles apparently are more focused on finding a replacement for the recently departed Brian Dawkins. An Eagles source made it clear yesterday that the team had "no interest" in a reunion with Terrell Owens, who was released by the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles then rid themselves of an equally surly but far less talented receiver, trading Greg Lewis to the New England Patriots. The biggest news, however, was that the Eagles had pinpointed a possible replacement for Dawkins by inviting free-agent safety Sean Jones to the NovaCare Complex today.
