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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

PHOENIX - Jeffrey Lurie's presence at the Eagles private workout with top quarterback prospect Geno Smith last week was conspicuous because the team owner rarely takes part in such excursions. Lurie said Monday it was the first time he's attended a scouting trip since 1999, when the Eagles selected Donovan McNabb with the No. 2 overall pick. That is revealing for two reasons. It shows the importance of the Eagles' No. 4 overall pick, the earliest they've picked since nabbing McNabb.

THERE WAS a moment during Eagles practice on Tuesday when Carson Wentz lined up in the shotgun and tentatively pointed toward the middle of the defense, the way quarterbacks often do when they are identifying the MIKE linebacker. Whether that is actually what Wentz was doing is besides the point: What's relevant is that the young quarterback turned around and looked at coach Doug Pederson, who was standing behind him with a play sheet in his hand. Pederson nodded to confirm that the rookie was correct in whatever he was pointing at, and the play commenced.

SAM BRADFORD'S two weeks of temporary insanity ended Monday. He returned to the team and retracted his demand to be traded after signing, just weeks before, a two-year, $35 million contract. When he resumed voluntary workouts, he was by all accounts welcomed back by teammates without animosity. His quiet return in advance of this weekend's rookie minicamp nonetheless prompted a storm of speculation and recrimination: Sam's teammates resent his absence. Sam needs to apologize to his teammates.

WHEN HE fired Chip Kelly and Ed Marynowitz, and brought Howie Roseman back into personnel after a year of forced exile, Jeffrey Lurie implied he just might end up hiring a personnel executive who could outrank Roseman. This is known in the advertising business as the "soft sell," which the online Investopedia says is "designed to avoid angering potential customers and pushing them away. " Roseman, never a fan favorite, clearly suffered image damage when Lurie allowed Kelly to remove him from all personnel decisions in favor of "football guy" Marynowitz.

APPARENTLY, JEFFREY Lurie really does want to do this thing right. That's something we haven't been able to say until now. Not because it wasn't true, but because the signs he's sent since firing Chip Kelly and Ed Marynowitz have been as garbled as the explanations he's offered in defense of them. Until now. On the surface, the only way to interpret the Eagles' hiring of Joe Douglas to head up the team's personnel department is that Lurie was serious when he said he wanted to build a legitimate personnel department, and that, this time, he would hold Howie Roseman accountable for the performance of that department.

For Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, the most delightful development over the last few days wasn't necessarily that his team's ostensible starting quarterback decided to show up to work. Yes, it's nice that Sam Bradford said Monday that he'll report to minicamp next week, but some more promising news for Lurie could have come Wednesday with a click on NFLShop.com. There, he would have found Carson Wentz's black No. 11 Eagles jersey among the site's top-selling pieces of men's apparel, for a cool $99.99.

The Eagles, through their long and somewhat tortured history, have been familiar with strange situations at the quarterback position. It is that spot on the football depth chart where otherwise reliable decision-makers - including coaches, team executives, and the players themselves - come up with some head-scratching stuff, and never more than when a team is about to switch from one savior to the next. Just recently, the handoff from Michael Vick to Nick Foles was messy; as was the one from Donovan McNabb to Kevin Kolb; and, reaching further back, who else but Buddy Ryan could have used three quarterbacks in the same series (Ron Jaworski, Randall Cunningham, and Matt Cavanaugh in 1986)

Carson Wentz checked his cellphone after an afternoon workout on April 20 and saw a text message that would change his life, determine the future home of his brother and sister-in-law, and alter the course of Eagles history. Wentz's agent messaged him that the Eagles had traded for the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft. The former North Dakota State quarterback had an inkling that could mean he would play for the Eagles, but he was not positive. He still believed he might land with the Los Angeles Rams, who held the No. 1 pick and had just met with him hours earlier.

Doug Pederson said that Sam Bradford's absence could potentially affect his training with the Eagles and his standing as the starting quarterback. "Anybody that's not in any of the 32 offseason programs is losing valuable time," Pederson said Saturday after the completion of the NFL draft. Bradford requested to be traded last week several days after the Eagles traded up for the No. 2 draft pick, which the team eventually used to pick quarterback Carson Wentz. He has since stayed away from the voluntary offseason program.

CHICAGO - At 8:22 p.m. Philadelphia time, Carson Wentz went onto the stage at the Auditorium Theater with an Eagles cap on his head and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell waiting with a green Eagles jersey in his hands. After a week of speculation and public debate, the Eagles landed the coveted North Dakota State quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft. "Happy to be an Eagle," he said on the stage. Unlike the last time the Eagles picked a quarterback in that spot, there was no booing from the Eagles fans in the crowd.

This would seem to be exactly the sort of thing the Eagles were trying to avoid when Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson met with Sam Bradford before last Wednesday's minicamp practice, to deliver in three-part harmony the news that they had traded up to second overall in the draft to get a quarterback, and to reassure Bradford that he was their 2016 starter. Welp. Maybe a follow-up meeting or two would have been in order, because by Monday morning, agent Tom Condon was calling Roseman with news of Bradford wanting to be traded.
