It was exactly 2 p.m. Friday when about 400 youngsters quickly filed into the auditorium of the Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Levittown and sat down cross-legged on the floor. A hush came over the room when an imposing figure clad in a dark gray blazer and black slacks walked to the front of the auditorium. "He's tall," said a little boy as he stretched his neck to look up at the man. After a brief introduction by the school's principal, Lou Saltzgueber, Harold Carmichael, the former all-pro wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, began what would be an hourlong motivational speech to the students about saying no to drugs and alcohol, striving to do their best in school and respecting themselves and others.

A 1980 Eagles NFC championship ring is being offered for sale to "serious collectors" for $12,000. "I know it's a lot of money, but you have to remember that rings of that sort are almost impossible to obtain," said Chris Salcido, of Blues Brother Entertainment in the San Francisco area, which currently is in possession of the ring. "There were only 45 players on the team, and a lot of those guys are unwilling to part with their championship rings at any price. So, when one goes on the market, it can command some pretty high numbers.

IT WAS 30 years ago but I remember it like it was yesterday. I rode my yellow, banana seat bicycle, the one with the monkey handle bars, the three blocks from my house to the Artic Market, in Doylestown. It was a Saturday, and an important day in the neighborhood. A new Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was coming to town, and those of us who imitated our favorite Eagles when we played Nerf football on Mercer Avenue were excited to meet him. I remember our awe when he walked in the same door we'd usually enter with our folks and shopping carts.

Former Eagles offensive lineman Woody Peoples, 67, died Tuesday evening in his hometown of Birmingham, Ala. Mr. Peoples started at guard for the Eagles' 1980 Super Bowl team. He played three seasons and in 47 games for Philadelphia from 1978 to 1980. He came to the Eagles from the San Francisco 49ers, where he was twice a Pro Bowler. His NFL career spanned 13 years, from 1968 to 1980. Former Eagles wide receiver Harold Carmichael, now the team's director of player development, described Mr. Peoples as a quiet teammate.

Lee Carmichael, the highly touted wide receiver from Gloucester Catholic, says he will attend Milford Academy, a Connecticut prep school that routinely produces Division I-A prospects. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound senior, the son of former Philadelphia Eagles all-pro Harold Carmichael, said his goal was to earn a Division I scholarship a year from now. "Milford is a great place, and many of the kids who go there end up at top schools," Carmichael said Monday night. A three-year starter, Carmichael said former Eagles receiver Mike Quick was among those who had convinced him of the advantages of attending prep school.

It is hardly the revelation of 2000 to concede that, given the opportunity, many NFL head coaches would endure a root canal rather than deal with the media. Dick Vermeil has always been the exception. Even before he joined the ABC television network during his 14-year hiatus from the NFL, Vermeil was an ambassador for his sport and a news-friendly coach who was rarely troubled by tough questions or harsh criticism. With this reporter, who covered Vermeil's first high school team more than 35 years ago, he was extraordinarily accommodating at a time when he didn't have to be - on Jan. 25, 1981.

Three Eagles deserving of serious Pro Bowl consideration have been voted Most Valuable Players by their teammates. They are: Offense: Herschel Walker, who also was so honored in 1993. Defense: Andy Harmon, his first major award as an Eagle. Special Teams: Ken Rose, now a three-time honoree. The three Bert Bell Award winners will be honored next Thursday at the 33rd annual Bert Bell Memorial Awards Dinner at the Wyndham Franklin Plaza. "These are three great football players and excellent, excellent leaders, and I'm really proud of them," coach Rich Kotite said.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - When you're a retired wide receiver, it's the little things that sometimes count most. Mike Quick and Harold Carmichael, one an Eagles radio broadcaster and the other the team's director of player development and alumni, are regular observers of practice. Carmichael, in fact, is at almost every one, helping out with various chores, including placing the football on the line of scrimmage. So the two Eagles greats have watched their share of postretirement practices.

Another member of the Eagles' 1960 NFL championship team is gone. Bobby Walston, the Eagles' all-time leading scorer, died Wednesday morning in Elk Grove Village, Ill. The 58-year-old Walston suffered a heart attack, an Eagles' spokesman said. "They're slowly dwindling down," ex-teammate Tommy McDonald said last night. "That makes six (players) from the '60 team who have died: Norm Van Brocklin, Howard Keys, Jesse Richardson, John Nocera, Joe Robb, and now Bobby. " As a pass receiver and kicker, Walston scored 881 points from 1951 through '62. His 114 points in a season held up until Paul McFadden scored 116 three years ago. Walston, the 1951 NFL Rookie of the Year, still holds the club mark for most points in a game - 25, against Washington in 1954.

The Eagles' honorary alumni captain for the first home opener of the Chip Kelly Era was Chuck Bednarik. Fortunately, no one asked the famously opinionated Hall of Famer what he thought of Kelly's spread offense - or, for that matter, the spread defense that, much to Philip Rivers' delight, the Eagles deployed. Had Bednarik been questioned on either, you can be sure his answer would have included references to "sissies," "overpaid prima donnas," Frank Gifford, and how tough Norm Van Brocklin was. To be fair, it's been more than a half-century since Bednarik retired.

EVERYBODY loves an underdog, and every year there is a rookie of humble pedigree who catches the imagination of Eagles fans. Sometimes he's a seventh-round draft choice (Nate Ilaoa, a stubby fullback from Hawaii in 2007), sometimes he's an undrafted free agent (Chad Hall, a height-challenged ex-Air Force officer in 2010, or Damaris Johnson, the wideout/returner who supplanted Hall last year). Quite often, this object of fan affection doesn't even make the team. When he does make it, his impact tends to lag way behind the amount of attention he gets on message boards.

BETHLEHEM - Vince Papale sees it in the post-practice reps Chad Hall takes with a JUGS machine, sees it when Riley Cooper makes a catch in traffic during seven-on-sevens. Dick Vermeil would have relished a chance to coach the 2010 Eagles. "He would've loved it," said Papale, who played for Vermeil from 1976 to '78. "He would've considered it a tremendous challenge. Dick was always one about giving opportunities. Obviously, he gave the greatest opportunity to me, but that's what it's about.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It is not every day that an NFL player breaks his franchise's record for yards from scrimmage. It is almost never that the guy who held the record, who held it for a quarter-century, is standing on the sideline, watching and cheering. When Brian Westbrook caught that 40-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of yesterday's 20-14 win at Giants Stadium - a beautiful display of everything Westbrook, a play on which he stayed in to help with blocking the Giants' pass rush, then leaked out of the backfield, caught a pass from Donovan McNabb and ran away from Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce - Harold Carmichael watched.

7 Pete Pihos. His opposition was a kid, some poor rookie who wasn't used to Pete Pihos' pirouettes and pivots. During a training camp practice in 1954, Pihos embarrassed the rookie after he somehow broke free, corralled the football, and dashed downfield for a touchdown. "Don't let that bother you, son," Eagles coach Jim Trimble said. "Pete can do that to any back in this league. " Certainly in his day, Pihos was the most feared wide receiver - or end - in the NFL. A fullback at Indiana, Pihos was the Eagles' third-round pick in 1945, and went on to play for the Birds from 1947 until 1955, when he retired at the age of 32 to focus on his day job as a salesman.
