INDIANAPOLIS - If the Eagles had hired Gus Bradley, which almost happened, Nick Foles might be in the Gus Bus driver's seat. After Bradley became head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, the day after the Eagles decided to hire Chip Kelly, Bradley hired Frank Scelfo as his quarterbacks coach. Scelfo was Foles' QB coach at Arizona, and the guy he spoke with at least a few times a week last season, when Foles was trying to navigate being thrust into the lineup as a third-round rookie.

Gus Bradley stayed in Philadelphia on Jan. 15, 2013, after an interview with the Eagles, one day away from potentially succeeding Andy Reid as the team's head coach. If not for Chip Kelly's change of heart, Bradley likely would have been hired in Philadelphia and not by the Jacksonville Jaguars. In fact, Reid called Bradley to talk to him about the Eagles job. "He called me and . . . just said, 'Hey, Gus, I know you're there, I just want to tell you Philadelphia is a great place, a great organization, an unbelievable opportunity,' " Bradley said Wednesday.

MOBILE, Ala. - The "Gus Bus" seems like a relic already, but really, as Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley stood at the Senior Bowl Tuesday and reflected on a dizzying NFL hiring process, he was only a week removed from news helicopters chronicling his arrival in Philadelphia. Nine days previously, Bradley had run the Seattle Seahawks' defense in their playoff loss at Atlanta, the day after Bradley first talked to the Eagles about their head-coaching job. Bradley acknowledged Tuesday that he was preoccupied with the looming playoff game that first time around, that the interview did not have his full attention.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Jaguars traded up nine spots to select former Penn State receiver Allen Robinson in the second round of the NFL draft on Friday night. The Jaguars gave San Francisco their third-round pick (No. 70 overall) and a fifth-rounder (No. 150) to choose Robinson with the 61st selection. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Robinson caught 177 passes for 2,474 yards and 17 touchdowns in three years at Penn State. He had 97 receptions for 1,432 yards and six scores last year.

THE EAGLES talked to 11 coaching candidates in January 2013 before their first choice, Chip Kelly, reconsidered his decision to stay at Oregon. Bruce Arians was the path - or maybe the Kangol cap - not taken. There was talk at the time of a pending Arians interview with the Eagles, and sure enough, Arians told a conference call yesterday that one was scheduled. Arians said he went to interview in Chicago, and while he was there, the Browns, Chargers and Eagles all canceled interviews.

ONE OF THE interesting aspects of the reported rift between Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and coach Chip Kelly is that it is Roseman who is generally credited with continuing the pursuit of Kelly after he originally turned down the Eagles' overtures 2 years ago. The Eagles, you may recall, had a carousel of coaches either interview for the job or turn down similar overtures - Gus Bradley, Doug Marrone and Bill O'Brien, then a coach at Penn State,...

T HE EAGLES won 10 games in Chip Kelly's inaugural season. Finished first in the East. Came within three points of beating the Saints in the playoffs. A vast improvement from the previous season's 4-12 record. So they've earned respect, right? Not, it would seem, from the people who set the NFL win totals at the Las Vegas Hilton. The early line on the Eagles, according to LVH, is nine wins, which most likely puts them on the playoff bubble. Actually, nine isn't bad in the overall scheme of things.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired coach Jon Gruden and general manager Bruce Allen yesterday after the team collapsed following a 9-3 start and failed to make the playoffs. Gruden, who helped lead the Buccaneers to a victory over the Oakland Raiders in the 2003 Super Bowl, was Tampa Bay's coach for 7 years. Allen was general manager for the last five seasons. "We will be forever grateful to Jon for bringing us the Super Bowl title, and we thank Bruce for his contributions to our franchise," Buccaneers co-chairman Joel Glazer said in a statement.

This is a post by Les Bowen on the Daily News' Eagles blog Eagletarian. THE TEAM most of us considered the main suitor for Nick Foles went in another direction Wednesday. Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs agreed in principle to a trade with the 49ers for quarterback Alex Smith, FoxSports.com reported. The 49ers will get Kansas City's second-round selection this April, 34th overall, and a conditional 2014 pick. The trade can't be official until free agency starts March 12. This development could mean the Eagles were not just posturing, and really do want to hold onto Foles, at least until Reid's successor, Chip Kelly, gets a look at last year's rookie QB on the practice field.

PAT SHURMUR. Doug Pederson. Tom Coughlin. The Eagles' coach-hiring brain trust seems to have a new motto: Search party like it's 1999. We're in the land of conjecture, of course, because none of the people involved in interviewing has said a word about anything since Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie spoke Dec. 30 on his decision to fire Chip Kelly. But this search looks and feels very different from what we experienced three years ago. Back then, everyone knew the prime target was Kelly.

Bruce Arians went to Chicago to interview with the Bears for their head coaching vacancy in 2013 thinking that he had the job. The Eagles apparently thought so, too. The Eagles, Browns, and Chargers canceled interviews with the then-Colts offensive coordinator when he visited Chicago first, Arians said Wednesday. The Bears filed the necessary paperwork first and therefore had dibs. Asked why those three teams canceled - all on the same day - Arians said, "I never got an answer other than, 'Thanks but no thanks.' " Arians, of course, didn't get the Bears job. It went to Marc Trestman instead.

The Jacksonville offense does not boast LeSean McCoy or Nick Foles or Pro Bowlers on the offensive line, and those watching Sunday's Eagles-Jaguars game likely will not confuse it with Chip Kelly's group. But when the Eagles defense is on the field, Jacksonville's pace might look familiar. Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch studied Kelly and Auburn coach Gus Malzahn after the 2011 season when he was the offensive coordinator at the University of Miami and installed an up-tempo system.

JORDAN MATTHEWS was miffed. Stronger than miffed, actually. He was incensed. When he wasn't taken in the first round in May's draft, Matthews was livid. And probably a little insulted. "Sitting there that first day, I had a little bit of a bitter taste in my mouth when I had to come back the second day," said Matthews, the SEC's all-time leading receiver who is now an Eagles rookie. "I thought I was going to go the first day. But then, when the Eagles picked me [in the second round]
