MOBILE, Ala. - Bill Davis, the defensive coordinator who kept trying to single-cover star receivers with Bradley Fletcher as the Eagles slipped from the playoff picture, remains secure in his post. But the late meltdown of the Birds' secondary has claimed some victims. Last week, former Pro Bowl corner Todd Lyght, who'd assisted Eagles defensive backs coach John Lovett the past two seasons, left to coach Vanderbilt's corners. Yesterday the Eagles announced that Lovett is now a pro scout.

You watch and try to learn. How did they get there? What makes them so different? What makes them better? Jeffrey Lurie has spent more than two decades studying the NFL's elite teams in this manner, and the Eagles owner would like to think his team belongs in the conversation. In truth, Lurie's Eagles lurk on the fringe of being elite: almost always good, but never quite good enough. In his 21 seasons as the team owner: The Eagles have had 13 winning seasons; only New England (18)

NEARLY 2 WEEKS have passed since the Eagles gave coach Chip Kelly total control of personnel, announcing in the process that Kelly would be hiring a new day-to-day personnel executive. Under the new setup, former general manager Howie Roseman, now an executive vice president, supposedly will handle contracts and the salary cap. But how will that work, exactly - will Kelly make the decisions on the broad parameters of deals, with Roseman handling the details? Or does Kelly tell Roseman, "I'd like to have so-and-so, if you and his agent can make the numbers work"?

Now that Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota has been safely packed away in bubble wrap until the NFL draft - assuming his decision-making skills include knowing when to come out - it's time to pay attention again to the NFL team that certainly needs him, but almost certainly won't get him. The Eagles have been quiet since their New Year's Week celebration of organizational dysfunction, and they figure to remain quiet as long as possible. Any team that can release a star player and not say a peep for weeks will have little trouble avoiding comment on something small like the cafeteria food fight that upended Jeffrey Lurie's carefully balanced management flow chart.

The Eagles are expected to interview Seahawks director of college scouting Scott Fitterer for their executive personnel vacancy, according to ESPN. The report said that Fitterer would interview this week. Seattle beat visiting Carolina, 31-17, in an NFC divisional playoff game Saturday night. The Eagles haven't confirmed reports during the search for a new senior scout. Fitterer has been in his current post since 2010, and in that span the Seahawks drafted 13 starters, according to the team's website.

Over all those sultry training-camp afternoons in Tuscaloosa, all those midseason practices to prepare for Auburn or Florida or another SEC power, all those pro days for the dozens of prospective draft picks that Alabama produced, Greg McElroy could never get over the way so many NFL scouts listened so closely to Ed Marynowitz. "It was captivating how many people went out of their way not only to say hello, but also talk to him with notepads out," McElroy, who quarterbacked the Crimson Tide to a national championship in 2009, said in a phone interview.

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

It took Chip Kelly less than four weeks to hire a coaching staff of 26 after he was named Eagles head coach two years ago, but it could take as long for him to find the one man who will be his second-in-command in personnel. Although he has made many coaching hires, Kelly has never had to hire an NFL senior scout. He will look for someone who checks off the typical requirements in any job - someone who is intelligent, committed, a leader, congenial - but he also has to find someone who fits his vision for the position.

I THINK CHIP KELLY is really, really smart, one of the sharpest people I've met in sports. Eagles fans had better hope I'm right about that, because the restructuring the Eagles announced Friday, buried beneath layers of horrid corporate-speak, means their hopes and dreams are now totally riding on Kelly being not just a good coach but a transcendent, bronze-bust-in-Canton-level figure. Chip has a lot to prove and to learn to get to those heights. Bill Belichick had spent a quarter-century in the NFL, including a failed head-coaching stint in Cleveland, before he got the Patriots job and total personnel control.

JEFFREY LURIE changed his mind about Howie Roseman continuing as the Eagles' general manager, 5 days after laughing off the idea. This happened either because (a) Lurie was, as he indicated in a statement released yesterday evening, swept away by a "fully integrated," "all-encompassing vision" of his front office, that emerged from meetings this week with team president Don Smolenski, coach Chip Kelly and Roseman, or (b) because team chairman Lurie was terrified Kelly might leave if he didn't get full control of personnel and the draft.
