THERE WAS a moment Tuesday when Jeffrey Lurie sounded like a man capable of regaining some of the public trust he'd cost himself over the previous few years. It occurred roughly 11 minutes into a question-and-answer session with reporters in a Boca Raton, Fla., hotel, and it detailed something that sounded remarkably close to a coherent vision for his franchise. The Eagles' owner talked about the treasure trove of data now available to teams as they search for ways to improve the success rate of their decision-making.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie married Philadelphia resident Tina Lai in a private ceremony this weekend. Lurie, 61, announced last July that he and Christina Weiss Lurie were getting divorced after 20 years of marriage. Lai will have no official role in the Eagles organization. The wedding was attended by family and close friends. "I am happy and excited as Tina and I begin our lives together," Lurie said in a statement. Lai, 39, is from a family that owns restaurants in Philadelphia, including the Vietnam Restaurant in Chinatown and the Vietnam Cafe in University City.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie tied the knot this weekend with Tina Lai in small ceremony. Lai, who was born in 1973, took over managing Vietnam Restaurant in 2008 from her brother, Benny Lai , but no longer works at the Chinatown staple. (Seriously, summer rolls to die for over there.) "We're very excited for Tina and Jeffrey," said a rep for the family, who also owns Vietnam Cafe in West Philadelphia, adding that they would like to keep the matter personal. Lai is the youngest of eight siblings.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Jeffery Lurie was sweating, his tufty white hair a-muss, but the spring in his bobbing gait had a youthful zest to it. Asked to stop and speak, he politely declined. He had said enough for one day. Lurie had just "broken it down" after the Eagles' 35-28 upset of the team he once loved; the team he tried to buy. After a win, and after Chip Kelly addresses the club, the team allows that day's hero to go to the middle of the team huddle and send the Eagles off with inspiration; break it down, as it were.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Jeffrey Lurie pretty much acknowledged Tuesday that he kept Howie Roseman around last year after taking away personnel power, and sent Roseman on a sort of global quest for the secrets of sports leadership, in order to hedge his bet on Chip Kelly. "It was always a potential," Lurie said, when asked if bringing Roseman back to run Eagles personnel at some point had been the plan all along, even as he was handing Kelly the reins after the coach demanded them early in 2015.

This is a post from Rich Hofmann's blog, The Idle Rich, on Philly.com HIS OFFICE? Your office? "His office," Jeffrey Lurie said. "When Andy and I talked, especially about these kinds of things, it was usually in his office. I just thought you showed respect by doing it that way. " It was coming up on 9 o'clock on Monday morning. That is when the Eagles' owner took the walk down the hall, the walk that he had been dreading. Out the door, down the hall, into a common area and then over to the football side of the NovaCare Complex.

"You won't hear me talking about this during the season. . . . I don't like situations to become sideshows. It's just not my style. I'll reflect and analyze afterwards, and that's what I've always done. " - Jeffrey Lurie, Aug. 30, 2012 One man's situation is another's sideshow it would seem, but after what took place Monday night in Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles' season is officially only one bearded lady and one sword swallower from any given summer night in Wildwood.

TURNS OUT, Jeffrey Lurie was not as thrilled to hand full personnel power over to Chip Kelly as Lurie said he was a year ago. Maybe this was a revisionist portrayal Wednesday on the part of the owner. He doesn't want to come off as fickle or easily fooled, as he tries to get fans believing in his ability to shepherd another coaching search, in the wake of his abrupt firing of Kelly on Tuesday evening. But as Lurie took the NovaCare auditorium stage and tried to explain his decision to end the three-year Kelly era, along with all the Kelly innovation and fresh thinking Lurie had championed, he seemed to say he acceded to Kelly's demands only so that if everything went south, the coach couldn't complain he wasn't given what he said he needed to succeed.

Sam Bradford learned about the Eagles' trade for the No. 2 overall pick before practice on Wednesday. He spoke with owner Jeffrey Lurie, top football executive Howie Roseman and coach Doug Pederson. Bradford was told he would be the Eagles' starting quarterback this season even though the team made a blockbuster deal that is expected to bring North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz to Philadelphia if the Los Angeles Rams take Cal quarterback Jared Goff with the No. 1 pick. Then Bradford went onto the field to practice for an organization that gave him a two-year, $36 million contract last month and is prepared to draft his likely replacement next week.

Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson probably felt at the very least that they were performing their due diligence earlier this offseason when they held their private workouts with California's Jared Goff and North Dakota State's Carson Wentz. In truth, it was overdone diligence. The vice president of football operations and head coach should have had their focus elsewhere because they had already made a vital decision at quarterback when they signed Sam Bradford to a two-year deal worth a guaranteed $22 million.

A few weeks before he was to attend the NFL meetings, Chip Kelly checked the number of Philadelphia-area reporters who were given credentials to cover the annual gathering of billionaire owners and their millionaire coaches, presidents, and general managers. Only four requests had been approved at the time. Kelly called one of the few Eagles employees who still cared to speak to him - and vice versa - to ask if the number was accurate. The new 49ers coach had become accustomed to the large contingent of Philly media that previously followed him to the meetings and often made his table during the mandatory interview the most attended.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - On the right side of the room, Chip Kelly indicated he was limited by a "weird situation" last season in Philadelphia, and asserted that despite complaints about aloofness from some former players, he wasn't going to change his approach in San Francisco. On the left side of the room, Doug Pederson touted an "open dialogue" with Howie Roseman, who was the focal point of conflict for Kelly, and said he would like for his players to see him "like a son going to your dad. " Two tables at the NFC coaches' breakfast Wednesday, the final day of the NFL meetings.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - No matter whom you believe or choose not to believe, there aren't any heroes in the story of the dysfunctional Eagles front office of 2015. Chip Kelly, in his first extensive comments on the subject since being fired by Jeffrey Lurie, painted a picture of organizational discord in which the structure created by the Eagles owner essentially sabotaged his first season with final say over the 90-man roster. In Kelly's view, he wasn't responsible for the disastrous free-agent contracts handed out to DeMarco Murray and Byron Maxwell last offseason.

During a meeting with reporters in Boca Raton, Fla., on Tuesday, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was asked what made him think that Howie Roseman deserved to be back in charge of the franchise's player-personnel department after Lurie had fired Chip Kelly in December. "The whole plan was for Howie to really spend the time studying state-of-the-art decision-making around the globe in sports," Lurie said. "We really opened it up, from English Premier League, NHL, NBA, MLB - try to find who the best general managers or 'head of basketball operations' were.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - The Eagles re-signed Sam Bradford and committed more than $140 million in guaranteed money this offseason, and owner Jeffrey Lurie expects the team to be a playoff contender in Doug Pederson's first season. He said the moves were made, however, to improve the team's long-term outlook. "We expect to compete for the division title," Lurie said Tuesday at the NFL's annual meetings. "But at the same time . . . it's maximizing short term, maximizing mid-term, maximizing long term.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - It took three months, but Jeffrey Lurie finally acknowledged that Howie Roseman is in charge of Eagles personnel. Why the Eagles owner didn't say so when he was first asked upon Chip Kelly's firing in late December, and then again several weeks later after he hired Doug Pederson as head coach, is up for interpretation. The most likely explanation was fear of backlash. Roseman, after all, had as much to do with the organization's slide into mediocrity as anyone.
