DeSean who? It may take several more games to declare the offense fine without Jackson - particularly when it faces more man-to-man defense - but if the first game was any indication of how the outside receivers will fare this season, the Eagles should be fine. Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper combined for just eight catches for 126 yards and a touchdown in the opener, but they were constantly open - Maclin, in particular - against the Jaguars' Cover 3-heavy zones. "We've always had confidence in our receivers here in terms of getting open," coach Chip Kelly said. "I think we faced a little bit more zone, so obviously guys are going to run a little bit cleaner through zones than they are going to run through man coverage.

After the hardest year of his football life, Jeremy Maclin couldn't have taken an easier route to redemption. Nick Foles had fooled the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense with a play fake; LeSean McCoy had thrown a timely and vital block to fend off an oncoming defensive end; and Maclin was alone in the center of Lincoln Financial Field. Here it was, the fourth quarter of Maclin's first game since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last July, and now all he had to do to score the decisive touchdown in the Eagles' 34-17 victory Sunday was to wait for Foles' pass to land in his hands.

The Eagles passing game has survived without Jeremy Maclin in the lineup, although it's clear after three games that they miss the injured wide receiver. The offense has not struggled to accumulate yardage - the Eagles are No. 2 in the NFL in total yards and No. 13 in passing yards - but it has become more dependent on DeSean Jackson. Now the undisputed No. 1 pass catcher, Jackson has 43 percent of the Eagles' receiving yards. That's the third highest percentage in the NFL. "He's a very talented player.

Poor Donovan McNabb. After one season with the best wide-receiving tandem he had as an Eagle, he gets traded to the Washington Redskins. Kevin Kolb will be the beneficiary of what has the potential to the top wide-receiver twosome in Eagles history. DeSean Jackson was a star from the start. Injuries made him the first rookie receiver to start a season opener under Andy Reid, but Jackson's six catches for 106 yards against the St. Louis Rams was a sign of things to come. Jackson set an Eagles rookie record with 62 catches and 912 receiving yards.

CHIP KELLY said yesterday he hasn't talked to Nick Foles yet about the film from Sunday's herky-jerky season opener. Kelly didn't want to share any insights into why his starting quarterback spent the first half of the game against Jacksonville lurching around the pocket with the dazed expression of a household pet abandoned on I-95. I watched the game again yesterday, and wasn't visited by any blinding insights. The only thing I noticed that I didn't really consider as it was happening was that a lot of the awkwardness had to do with Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered another hip pointer Sunday and is unlikely to practice Wednesday, Eagles coach Andy Reid said. Maclin has not been ruled out for this Sunday's game at Arizona. He suffered a similar injury in the opener against Cleveland but was able to play in Sunday's win against Baltimore. "I stood here last week and told you it was going to be a struggle, and then he came around," Reid said Monday. "So I'd just tell you it's day-to-day. " Maclin, whose lone catch against Baltimore was a 23-yard touchdown, told reporters after the game that this injury was more serious than the first.

Jeremy Maclin stepped off the line of scrimmage on Saturday, tried to move to his left, and felt his right leg stick in the ground. The leg hyperextended and popped. Maclin sprawled devastated on the turf. He didn't need a diagnosis. He knew that he tore his anterior cruciate ligament and would be out for the season. "It wasn't the fact that it hurt," Maclin said. "It was the fact that I knew what happened. I was emotional, just knowing everything that was at stake. This is something I love to do. I love to play football.

Jeremy Maclin sat in a room at Benjamin Franklin High School on Tuesday morning, helping students with a financial education computer game that uses a football simulation to teach lessons about money. The Eagles wide receiver coached half of the class, a group representing his team, and picked run or pass plays of various difficulties. A multiple-choice question about finances appeared on the screen, and a correct answer produced a successful play. With the play-calling at his whim, Maclin requested some running plays for his students.

The Eagles' Jeremy Maclin tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Saturday's practice. It is an injury that will cost the 25-year-old wide receiver the season and will leave the Eagles trying to fill the void left by the loss of a productive starter just two days into camp. Maclin collapsed during noncontact 7-on-7 drills at the NovaCare Complex. He was helped to a cart after being examined on the turf for about five minutes. Coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman turned from watching practice to monitoring Maclin while he was on the ground.

ATLANTA - Jeremy Maclin had his coming out party Sunday night. The rest of the nation found out what Philadelphia has known for a year now: The Eagles wide receiver is a budding star. Yes, the Eagles already have a superstar wideout in DeSean Jackson. But on a night when Jackson was held in check, Maclin carried the pass-catchers - until the bitter end. Unfortunately, his effort was all for naught as the Eagles fell to the Falcons, 35-31, at the Georgia Dome, and when the team needed him most Maclin couldn't hold onto a Mike Kafka throw over the middle on fourth down with less than two minutes remaining.

Nick Foles missed open receivers throughout Sunday's victory over Jacksonville despite the perception that he did a 180 in the second half after a mistake-filled first half. But the indecision was so glaring and the Eagles offense was so productive that Foles' first career opening-day start could be just a blip on the season if the quarterback can return to his 2013 groove. He has done it before. He rebounded from the Cowboys debacle last October, and to a lesser extent from the preseason opener against the Bears.

THE DEFICIT was already 14-0 with 5:03 left in the first quarter Sunday, and the three greatest fears about season No. 2 under Chip Kelly had bubbled to the surface: One, Nick Foles might, in fact, be a one-hit wonder. Two, the Eagles' secondary still appeared to be a four-alarm fire, despite offseason additions. Three, they would miss the ability of DeSean Jackson to create separation for other receivers and to extend plays. Of course, we all calmed down in the second half, as Cary Williams and Nate Allen put their Rosetta Stone tapes away and began to speak English to each other, and Foles stopped hugging the football as if it were a security blanket, and big plays by Zach Ertz and Jeremy Maclin reassured us that Kelly had not lost his mind when he jettisoned his Pro Bowl receiver last March after his best statistical season.

Nick Foles has been handed the keys to the fastest offense in football, and it's his job not to drive it into a brick wall. If you were watching the first half of the Eagles' first game of this long-anticipated NFL season, you probably did not think he was doing his job very well. Nowhere was the only place the third-year quarterback was taking the Eagles fast in the first 30 minutes Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. After committing just four turnovers - two fumbles and two interceptions - in 11 games he started or played most of last season, he had three - two fumbles and an interception - on the first six possessions of the new season.

The Eagles retreated to the locker room during halftime of Sunday's 34-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars to a soundtrack of dissatisfied fans. A season that opened with postseason aspirations started with a scoreless 30 minutes. "I think everybody was frustrated," said coach Chip Kelly, whose team trailed, 17-0, at halftime. "I heard a few fans who were frustrated, too. Go figure. But they had every right. I was booing myself. " Yet, the locker room was devoid of panic. The Eagles expected the 34-0 second-half onslaught that ensued.

When the Eagles run The Eagles had the NFL's best rushing offense last season, and the only major change was replacing Bryce Brown with Darren Sproles. Allen Barbre, a solid run blocker, is filling in for Lane Johnson at right tackle for the first month of the season. But the central figures are back, with LeSean McCoy running the ball and an offensive line that includes Pro Bowlers Jason Peters and Evan Mathis on the left side. The Jaguars ranked No. 29 in rushing defense last season.

Our next obsession is predicting our team's final record with game-by-game analysis. Everyone from experts like the great Ray Didinger to the homeless guy at Broad and Locust has made a prediction.

Chip Kelly was born 30 years after Knute Rockne died and 15 months before Amos Alonzo Stagg's death, so Kelly never entered a room with either of the famed football coaches. Kelly likes to say that unless a coach sat with Rockne or Stagg, he's just stealing someone else's ideas. But just like Kelly's offense, it's more complicated than he makes it seem. Invention begets innovation, and Kelly's concepts were introduced to the NFL with an up-tempo offense that scored more points and accumulated more yards than any other Eagles team in franchise history.
