NICK FOLES has been called a lot of things by a lot of people in the last year or so: cool, accurate, smart, franchise; lucky, fad, product of a system, flash in the pan. The descriptions shift with the winds, and the final scores. There is little upon which everyone can agree. Except now, maybe, this: tough. It is an essential quality for success as an NFL quarterback. There is no faking it, either. The rules and the officials do everything they can to protect you and you still get leveled by human missiles on a regular basis.

Jason Kelce left in the third quarter of the Eagles' 37-34 win over the Washington Redskins with an abdominal injury. Jason Peters was ejected in the fourth quarter because of his involvement in a fight. An offensive line that was already decimated lost perhaps its two most valuable pieces. The Eagles scored their final 10 points behind a line with just one of its expected original starters, and all five players playing different positions. "Everybody understands going in . . . you're not going to be at full strength, so can you endure?"

ON JAN. 19, 2002, the Eagles won a divisional-round playoff game in Chicago, 33-19. Twelve years and 9 months later, something that happened that day might have helped them overcome the Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field. In the last game played before the rebuilding of Soldier Field, Bears quarterback Jim Miller threw an interception to Eagles safety Damon Moore. As Moore was running the ball back toward Miller, Moore still more than 25 yards away from the QB, Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas pile-drove Miller into the ground, Miller's throwing shoulder hitting the frozen ground first.

Nick Foles thought he had thrown an interception, and he thought the play had ended, and so he never did turn his head to the right to see Chris Baker - a 6-foot-3, 325-pound defensive lineman for the Washington Redskins - charging toward him with malevolence on his mind. An NFL player lives for an opportunity like the one Baker believed he had, for a clear shot at a defenseless quarterback, and Foles could walk backward across Roosevelt Boulevard at rush hour without risking the same measure of bodily harm that Baker threatened to deliver.

NICK FOLES pried himself off the turf eventually, his recovery aided by a delay caused by the brawl taking place behind him, and then by the official review of the interception he'd just thrown, which turned out to be an incomplete pass. Foles had been viciously blindsided by Washington defensive lineman Chris Baker at the end of the play, leading Jason Peters to go after Baker, a bunch of Eagles to rush the Washington sideline, and Baker and Peters to be ejected. Now Foles gathered his troops and refocused.

Nick Foles sprawled on the turf with ribs aching after a hit he never saw coming. Jason Peters picked a fight with the instigator, and defending his quarterback turned into a multiplayer melee on the Washington Redskins sideline that resulted in two ejections. The game was tied in the fourth quarter, and the commotion became widespread. No one knew who would have the ball, or who would play quarterback for the Eagles, or whether the star left tackle would stay in the game. During a Sunday afternoon that already featured the drama of DeSean Jackson's return to Philadelphia, the intensity of the Eagles' 37-34 win over Washington was unlike any other game that some Eagles had ever experienced.

When the Eagles opened training camp on Saturday, Allen Barbre was with the first-team offensive line. He replaced Lane Johnson, who will miss the first four games because of a PED suspension. Coach Chip Kelly wasted no time changing the starting lineup. "We've got to prepare for our first four games, so we've got to get the guy who is going to be the starting right tackle for the first four games," Kelly said. "It will have a big impact on terms of where he is. We still have to develop Lane.

A WEEK REMOVED from the Daily News reporting that Lane Johnson will miss 25 percent of the Eagles' season, the reaction remains thus: Yawn. Johnson is the Eagles' starting right tackle. He also is the Eagles' most replaceable player. He will miss four games for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Try to notice. It's not that the rest of the positions have no depth. In fact, several positions have several options should they lose a starter. It's not that the Eagles have a vast store of backup linemen.

AFTER THE Eagles finished losing to the Saints in their playoff game in January, they exited the field, dressed in their locker room and talked about how they expected to improve in Year 2 of the Chippah. After the Eagles finished their third preseason teaching camp yesterday, they exited the field, headed toward the locker room and talked about how they had improved on several categories of intangibles. That might be true. They might be a smoother machine, more completely comprehending what innovative head coach Chip Kelly wants on offense, more quickly understanding what innovative coordinator Billy Davis needs on defense.

BEING AN NFL player on the other side of 30 is kind of like being a sleeping old person. Everybody always is checking on you to make sure you're still breathing. Todd Herremans hardly is a gridiron geriatric. He's just 31-going-on-32 and is only the third-oldest player on the Eagles' offensive line, 11 months younger than left guard Evan Mathis and 9 months younger than left tackle Jason Peters. But Mathis was a first-team All-Pro selection last season and Peters earned his sixth Pro Bowl invitation.
