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.

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.

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.

There were more ex-Eagles than current Eagles at Todd Herremans' third annual Hoops 4 Hope fund raiser Thursday night at Vie Restaurant. A month ago, LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, Trent Cole and Herremans were four of the more notable Eagles and accounted for a combined 32 seasons in Philadelphia. But after a flurry of moves and decisions from Chip Kelly that had McCoy dealt to the Bills, Maclin choosing the Chiefs, Cole and Herremans released and eventually signed by the Colts, and Nick Foles traded to the Rams, the Eagles took on a dramatically different look in a matter of weeks.

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.

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.

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.

The Eagles have until Monday at 4 p.m. to designate the franchise player tag, which they could use on a pending free agent such as wide receiver Jeremy Maclin to effectively keep him off the open market. If the Eagles tagged Maclin, the wide receiver could sign the tender for about $12.8 million guaranteed. Outside linebacker Brandon Graham is the Eagles' other top free agent. The franchise tag number for linebackers is about $13.7 million. Those salaries are greater than the annual compensation either player would likely draw with a long-term deal.

The Philadelphia Eagles team that Chip Kelly took over three years ago was coming off a 4-12 season, but it really wasn't as bad as all that. The San Francisco 49ers team that just hired Kelly on the rebound was 5-11 this past season, and it might not even be that good. When you look at the two situations, it's fair to wonder if Kelly benefitted from good timing with the Eagles and will suffer the other side of that coin with the 49ers. That would be a real shame, wouldn't it? The 2012 Eagles were a dispirited bunch that quit on Andy Reid, but the offense was still ranked 15th in the league.

Doug Pederson stood in the front of the NovaCare Complex auditorium for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon. He thanked lots of people and answered question after question about the most high-profile job he has ever held. Sure, he once opened a season as an NFL starting quarterback right here in Philadelphia, but nothing he did or said mattered much, which was good because he never did or said much that mattered. Pederson was Andy Reid's chosen body and mind to bridge the gap to the start of Donovan McNabb's career.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Doug Pederson walked into the locker room as an assistant coach one last time on Saturday. He held a play sheet in his left hand while walking among players just seconds after the Kansas City Chiefs' 27-20 loss to the New England Patriots. Pederson exited 30 minutes later, wheeling a suitcase to the team bus after a bad night but heading toward a bright future. The next time he leaves a football field, it will be as the head coach of the Eagles. Pederson declined comment to reporters from the Philadelphia area in the Gillette Stadium hallway after the loss, which eliminated the Chiefs from the playoffs and will allow the Eagles to hire Pederson as Chip Kelly's replacement this week.

THE TOP SEEDS join the playoff fray this week, including Peyton Manning, who has tied an obscure mark held by Tom Brady. All of the work done by the 15-1 Panthers would be rendered meaningless with a loss against one of the most dangerous No. 6 seeds in recent memory. Bring 'em on, says Carolina's star defensive back. He gets Seattle, we get what should be another terrific weekend of playoff football. Here's a preview: CHIEFS (12-5) at PATRIOTS (12-4) Seeds: Chiefs 5; Patriots 2.

The last time Riley Cooper touched the football this season it glanced off his left hand and fell to the turf at MetLife Stadium and the Eagles were forced to punt. It probably was the last time he was targeted as an Eagle. If so, it was a fitting way to go out. The Eagles gambled on third down late in the game and Sam Bradford went to Cooper, who had run a post route. The ball was thrown a touch high, but the timing was off. Cooper didn't look back at his quarterback until the last moment and the ball ricocheted off his outstretched hand.

Chip Kelly walked off the field in East Rutherford, N.J., after the 2014 season finale aware that the Eagles needed major changes for 2015. He didn't expect that one year later, his exit would be the biggest change of all. The Eagles finish the schedule against the New York Giants for the second consecutive season, but Kelly will not be coaching. Owner Jeffrey Lurie fired Kelly on Tuesday night, culminating a year of upheaval on the field and in the front office. "This has been one of the most disappointing seasons I've ever endured," Lurie said.

I SAID EARLIER this year that Chip Kelly was a riverboat gambler. Well, it's absolutely clear now that the gamble he took with the Eagles did not pay off. He'd determined that their 10-6 team could not be a serious Super Bowl contender, so he did a host of things that brought 12 new players to the most important 25 positions on the team. By and large, almost none of these moves enhanced the Eagles and overall clearly weakened the talent pool. Imagine for a second if Kelly had taken only one chance last offseason by just trading Nick Foles for Sam Bradford and a second-round draft choice.

After Jeremy Maclin left the Eagles in free agency, Jordan Matthews said the team would not have a No. 1 receiver this season, utilizing a balanced receiving corps. Fifteen games into the season, Matthews' prediction did not come true. He became the No. 1 receiver. Matthews, a second-round pick in 2014, needs 57 receiving yards Sunday against the New York Giants to reach the 1,000-yard plateau. He would become the 13th player in franchise history to achieve that total. His 78 catches rank eighth on the Eagles' single-season list, and he needs seven catches Sunday to match Maclin's reception total from last season.

Wow, that was fast. That's what we said the first time we saw Chip Kelly's offense play a regular-season game on a Monday night against the Washington Redskins and that's what we were thinking again Tuesday evening when the shocking news broke that Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie had shown his head coach the exit before the completion of his third season. Fast out of the gate, fast out the door and fast with just about everything else in between during his brief and fascinating tenure in Philadelphia.

THERE IS much more to coaching in the NFL than X's and O's, Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham said Wednesday afternoon, some 16 hours following Jeffrey Lurie's stunning move to fire coach Chip Kelly. "The league," as Graham calls it, is a constant struggle among alpha males for power and respect. Throw the big salaries around and who knows what chaos could ensue? When he wins, the coach has cachet. When he loses, the daggers come out. So if Graham had his way, Lurie's next coach will have some NFL experience - something Kelly did not have before his hiring in January 2013.
