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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Allen Barbre agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Eagles that will keep the reserve offensive lineman signed through 2017. Barbre, who will turn 30 this month, was entering the final year of his two-year, $1.5 million contract. Terms of the extension were not available Although he is not a starter, Barbre emerged last season as the team's top reserve offensive lineman. He took 86 snaps, including 51 in place of Jason Peters in the Nov. 10 win over the Green Bay Packers.

THE EAGLES set team records for points, yards, passing yards and touchdowns as they won the NFC East title in 2013. In Chip Kelly's new offense, LeSean McCoy set team records for rushing yards and total yards from scrimmage. DeSean Jackson had the best season of his six in the NFL. Nick Foles ascended from anonymity to MVP of the Pro Bowl. None of that would have happened without Jason Peters. Lost amid the gaudy numbers and the Chippah hype, Peters, in his 10th season, showed little effect from his disadvantages.

As far as alarms go, the Eagles' failure to address their depth at offensive line and inside linebacker in last week's NFL draft hardly rang a bell. They return all five players from one the league's best lines and both starting inside linebackers. And although they had opportunities to upgrade at each position this offseason, the Eagles were confident about their returners. They saw the need to inject some young talent into the pipeline, but they didn't. "Dagger," general manager Howie Roseman said about not drafting any offensive linemen. "Dagger in the heart.
