The calls from the 303 area code began to pop up not long after the Eagles signed Tim Tebow this spring. Radio stations wanted to know how Philadelphia was handling Tebowmania. Colleagues from other newspapers and websites wanted to grasp the enormity of the media blitz that was certainly engulfing the Eagles beat. Kinda quiet, actually, they were told, and this really disappointed them. Denver in 2010 and 2011 was ground zero for one of the most divisive quarterback controversies in recent memory.

Sam Bradford watched the Eagles' preseason opener in shorts and a T-shirt, postponing the most anticipated August attraction. So the 2015 preseason commenced the way the 2014 season concluded - with Mark Sanchez as the team's starting quarterback. Sanchez struggled Sunday in the only two series he played in the Eagles' 36-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts at Lincoln Financial Field. The quarterback who might have been most impressive was third-stringer Matt Barkley, although fourth-stringer Tim Tebow led in fan interest.

IT WASN'T CLEAR that we learned anything vital about the 2015 Eagles in a sun-baked, 36-10 preseason-opening romp over the Indianapolis Colts at Lincoln Financial Field. You need for the starters to play a decent amount, and maybe you even need for the game to count in the standings, before you start to click into proclamation-issuing mode. That was more or less what Chip Kelly said afterward. "There's tape for us to coach off of, and that's really what we're looking at," Kelly said.

Above all, Chip Kelly enjoys fitting together the puzzle pieces that form a football team, but the process of doing so sometimes seems to just create more puzzles. He might have the solution to all of them, but the rest of us will just have to wait and find out. Chip isn't really saying. There were a number of puzzles to consider on Wednesday as the Eagles bounded through the shimmering heat at the NovaCare Complex for another day of training camp with the start of the regular season just one month away.

The comeback victory by the unbeaten New England Patriots over the Eagles earned the highest overnight rating for a Sunday or Monday night game in two years. The Patriots' 31-28 win Sunday (seen locally on NBC10) drew a 15.6 overnight rating in the nation's largest markets. It was another late November game involving an undefeated team - the Indianapolis Colts' 26-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on a Monday night - that received a 15.8 on Nov. 28, 2005. - Associated Press

Michael Vick was named NFC offensive player of the week for his performance against the Indianapolis Colts, the Eagles said Tuesday. Vick won NFC offensive-player-of-the-month honors in September. The quarterback, in his return from an injury-induced monthlong layoff, completed 17 of 29 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown as the Eagles beat Indianapolis, 26-24, on Sunday. He has not thrown an interception this season. Vick also ran 10 times for 74 yards and scored a touchdown.

IT IS FUNNY how things can creep up without our noticing. In a couple of weeks, the Indianapolis Colts will start their 32nd season since deserting Baltimore and breaking my heart in 1984. Conceptually, I accepted that my childhood team now belonged to kids in Indiana three decades ago, but emotionally I still felt as if I had a higher moral right to ownership of the Colts. After all, the Baltimore Colts had existed for 31 seasons before Robert Irsay shipped them into history on a snowy March morning.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - The Baltimore Ravens have acquired center A.Q. Shipley from the Indianapolis Colts for a conditional 2014 draft pick. The tradel, announced Thursday by the Ravens, will be finalized after Shipley passes a physical. Shipley played in 14 games last season with the Colts, getting five starts. He participated on special teams for Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game in Baltimore last season. The 6-foot-1, 309-pound Shipley was selected in the seventh round of the 2009 draft by Pittsburgh.

Wide receiver Josh Huff (shoulder) and offensive lineman Matt Tobin (ankle) were declared out for Monday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Neither played last week or practiced this week. Running back Chris Polk (hamstring), wide receiver Brad Smith (groin), and cornerback Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) are all probable. Polk missed the preseason and season opener, but he could make his debut. The Colts will miss inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who is out with a hamstring injury.

CANTON, Ohio - Marvin Harrison's professional football journey ended Saturday night right where it began exactly 20 years ago, beneath a blue August sky on the field adjacent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Harrison, the Roman Catholic and Syracuse product who became a spectacular NFL receiver with the Indianapolis Colts, was one of eight men inducted Saturday into the Hall, to football-shaped top of which was visible just beyond the stage where they all addressed a large and boisterous crowd as well as a national television audience.

CANTON, Ohio - It was as if Marvin Harrison couldn't help himself. During 13 NFL seasons, the North Philadelphia native was obsessed with preparation. So on the weekend that spectacular career was being celebrated, he knew only one way to get ready. "Practice," Harrison said Friday. "Practice is my motto. " On Thursday, 48 hours before he'll be one of eight men inducted during the Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony Saturday night, Harrison conducted a one-man walk-through at 23,000-seat Tom Benson Stadium.

BEFORE ANDY Reid hired Jim Johnson to be the Eagles' defensive coordinator in 1999, Johnson had had just one previous opportunity to run his own defense in the NFL. That was with the Indianapolis Colts in 1996-97. It wasn't exactly a rousing success. The Colts won just 12 games in those two seasons and Johnson's defense finished 18th and 25th in points allowed, respectively. I mention this not to besmirch the reputation of Johnson, who is one of the best defensive coaches in NFL history, but to show that even the very best football coaches aren't magicians.

SAN FRANCISCO - The third time was the charm for Marvin Harrison. The Roman Catholic High School product was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday in his third year of eligibility. The former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver had been a finalist in each of his previous two years on the ballot. Harrison was one of eight people voted into Canton Saturday by the Hall's 46 selectors during a nearly nine-hour meeting. The others in the 2016 class are quarterback Brett Favre, linebacker Kevin Greene, offensive tackle Orlando Pace, former Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Tony Dungy, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo, guard Dick Stanfel, and quarterback Ken Stabler.

Sam Bradford said Saturday that he wants to remain with the Eagles, and Chip Kelly was not surprised. It was the first time Bradford had been emphatic in public about his desire to stay with the team. Bradford becomes a free agent after the season. "He's always seemed comfortable being here," Kelly said Monday. "It may be news to you guys but not news to us. " Bradford said returning to the Eagles is "not my choice," indicating that it's up to the team signing him to a new contract.

A new season of the most watched reality TV show in the country resumes Thursday night when Brady's bunch - the lying, cheating and perpetually winning New England Patriots - begins defense of its fourth Super Bowl title of the 21st century against the Pittsburgh Steelers. You want dysfunction? You'll find it here within the NFL family. For most of the summer, Tom Brady was scheduled to serve a four-game suspension thrust upon him by commissioner Roger Goodell. It was the superstar quarterback's punishment for his alleged role in the deflated balls controversy that erupted after New England's AFC championship rout of the Indianapolis Colts last season.

It was the most serendipitous move of Howie Roseman's tenure in his former role as Eagles general manager. With the Eagles staging a placekicker battle that neither man seemed qualified to win last summer, Roseman said he spent about five minutes on the phone in mid-August with his former colleague and current Indianapolis Colts general manager, Ryan Grigson. Before they hung up, the two men had consummated a trade for a couple of players who were going to be waived by their respective teams.

Chip Kelly has done some things slowly this preseason. The Eagles coach decided there was no need to rush Sam Bradford and his twice surgically repaired left knee back onto the playing field, which is why the quarterback sat out the preseason opener last Sunday against Indianapolis. Running back DeMarco Murray, the man who was just eight rushing attempts short of becoming the sixth player in NFL history to carry the ball 400 times in a season last year with Dallas, also was a spectator against the Colts as well as for a good portion of Kelly's third training camp, which came to an official close Friday.

Sunday was a good overall day for the Eagles as they opened the exhibition season with a fairly solid and injury-free win over the Indianapolis Colts, but it was also a very good day, specifically, for the 2014 draft class. The last draft controlled by Howie Roseman had some undeniable high points. Receivers Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff were contributors as rookies, as was nose tackle Beau Allen and, to a lesser degree, defensive back Jaylen Watkins. There were gaps among the draftees, however, and none bigger than first-round pick Marcus Smith, who became the poster boy of what was portrayed as a failure of the previous player-personnel department.
