If form held, Jermane Mayberry would be getting demoted right about now. He isn't. The former first-round pick is winning the battle for the Eagles' starting right guard position. That says something about Mayberry's performance and something about the Eagles' progress in coach Andy Reid's second year. "Jermane is getting better every day," Reid said. "So far, he's doing a nice job out there, and he's familiarizing himself again with the guard position. " Mayberry was part of a platoon at right tackle last season.

Drafting a Division II offensive lineman with vision problems and a Division I-AA tight end with a shaky reputation is an apparently very complex task. Why else would Eagles officials so emphatically immerse themselves in secrecy, strategy and statistics on draft day, like a general's staff on the eve of an invasion? Why else would they spend months of time and tens of thousands of dollars compiling all the information that filled their bunker? The team's brain trust huddled all day in the coaches' meeting room yesterday, reviewing data, cross-checking it, exchanging opinions.

What could be the biggest, strongest and best offensive line the Eagles have put together in years added an important piece yesterday when offensive tackle Jermane Mayberry, the team's first-round draft pick, signed a five-year contract worth between $4.752 million and $5.177 million, depending on incentives. The Eagles are only the second NFL club to sign its top pick. The big 22-year-old from Texas A&M-Kingsville is expected to start this season - at guard, not tackle - and to eventually become the club's left tackle.

On those training-camp nights when the Eagles gathered to study game films, rookie left tackle Tra Thomas would arrive and scan the room for left guard Jermane Mayberry. The Eagles' No. 1 pick in the 1998 draft, Thomas sat near Mayberry, and together they watched the screens, occasionally whispering comments about plays and mapping out the moves they would practice the next day. Mayberry, who floundered last season at left tackle, gave Thomas advice about the position that has stymied Eagles linemen for the last decade.

Actions may speak louder than words, but as the Eagles and Jets prepare for Saturday's football game, the words aren't giving up without a fight. Eagles coach Ray Rhodes will shuffle his offensive line. Rookie Jermane Mayberry, the team's first-round draft pick, will start his first NFL game, at left tackle in place of Barrett Brooks. Veteran Guy McIntyre will start his first game of the season at left guard. Joe Panos will move from left to right guard, displacing Lester Holmes.

With an offensive line that has undergone more face-lifts than the cast of a Hollywood blockbuster, the Eagles are awaiting yet one more adjustment. As of yesterday, it remained a mystery as to whether Jermane Mayberry or Lonnie Palelei would start at right tackle Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Then again, maybe neither will start. Palelei, who moved up to a starting role after Mayberry suffered a hamstring injury against the Buffalo Bills in the third game of the season, is listed as questionable for the Bears game after injuring his shoulder Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

If you're looking for a unique perspective on tomorrow night's NFC divisional playoff game between the Eagles and the New Orleans Saints, Jermane Mayberry is your man. When the Eagles went to the Super Bowl two seasons ago, Mayberry was the starting right guard. It was the final game of his nine-year career with the Eagles and, of course, it did not end the way he would have liked. A month later, he signed a four-year contract with the Saints and embarked on the most unusual season of his career.

Over the years, it's been about as stable as the cast of Saturday Night Live and usually funnier. It's the Eagles offensive line and, with the regular season about to begin, it is - all together now - full of question marks. After a preseason of shuffling and reshuffling his line, Andy Reid made another significant move yesterday. He added Jeff Dellenbach, a 36-year-old who could wind up starting at right guard and will certainly be the team's long snapper. The Eagles have 10 offensive linemen on their roster.

Four years, not five. That's the message Jack Bechta, the agent for Eagles first-round draft pick Jermane Mayberry, continued to put forth yesterday during his three-hour meeting with Eagles vice president Joe Banner at Veterans Stadium. "We're still stuck on the four- or five-year bit," Bechta said yesterday. "But on the other hand, we made some headway today. " Bechta has turned down the Birds' initial five-year offer of about $4.5 million for Mayberry, the 6-foot-4, 325-pound offensive lineman from Texas A&M-Kingsville.

Tra Thomas has some pain in his back these days where he had surgery once, and his knees bark at him occasionally, but for a man who played a dozen seasons of offensive tackle in the NFL, Thomas got away almost clean. He came out of the game physically whole, but he didn't get away clean from the part of him that will always remain with the Eagles. Thomas came home Thursday to officially retire as a member of the team once again. "All I ever wanted to be was a Philadelphia Eagle," Thomas said.

DALLAS - Jermane Mayberry met Juan Castillo when Mayberry was a 17-year-old recruit and Castillo was offensive line coach for Texas A&M-Kingsville, which was recruiting the young lineman from Floresville, Texas. "The biggest thing is his sincerity," Mayberry said yesterday, when asked what first impressed him about the coach he worked with in college and then for 9 years with the Eagles. "He comes across as, and he is, a very sincere person. He's very honest . . . I think that's what drew me close to him. " Mayberry, who now lives in the Austin, Texas, area, knows Castillo about as well as anyone who ever played for him. But Mayberry acknowledged even he was surprised when his wife, Danielle, saw the crawl at the bottom of their TV screen Wednesday evening and told Mayberry what Andy Reid had done.

Lots of pro sports teams do charity work, which is why it's significant that the Eagles are one of only three organizations in the world short-listed for the Sports Team of the Year Award from Beyond Sport, a global group that operates in 115 countries. The Eagles will find out today, at the Beyond Sport Conference in Chicago, whether they won. The other finalists are two soccer teams, Manchester United and Hapoel Tel Aviv FC. The Birds are there because of the Eagles Youth Partnership, the charity arm they set up 15 years ago. Eagles president Joe Banner said that when Jeffrey Lurie bought the team, the top people involved in management "all came from a background of having done a lot of charity work," and they didn't want to do what many teams do, be content with establishing a foundation that funnels money to existing projects.

They both get it. A 6-10 team like last season's Eagles does what it has to do to get better, and if that meant Mark Simoneau and Hollis Thomas had to start over, in New Orleans, well, that's football. "I'm not going to say anything negative about the situation," Simoneau said last week. "It's part of the game; it's part of the business. Yeah, I was working to be an Eagle [this] year. But things change. " The Saints' return to the Superdome rightly got all of the headlines last week.

More than any crunching block or all-star selection or even competing in the NFL's biggest showcase, the Super Bowl, former Eagles offensive lineman Jermane Mayberry will more likely be remembered for his vision. Entering his second season with the New Orleans Saints, after spending nine years as an Eagle, Mayberry is legally blind in his left eye. But that didn't prevent him from seeing a better way for youngsters. And his willingness to give back has made him a symbol of the Eagles Youth Partnership (EYP)

He was on the West Coast, watching the destruction in New Orleans on television, and as usual Jermane Mayberry was thinking of others and not himself. It's been more than eight months since Mayberry sat in the locker room in Jacksonville's Alltel Stadium, having played his final game with the Eagles in their Super Bowl loss to New England. In that time, he has gotten a new home, then a new temporary home, and certainly a new perspective on life. Now a starting guard with the New Orleans Saints after nine years with the Eagles, Mayberry fled the area with the team during the last week of August, before Hurricane Katrina devastated the area.

The somber day after his team's three-point loss in the Super Bowl, Eagles coach Andy Reid acknowledged what a challenge it would be for his team to return to the NFL's title game, let alone win it. Of course, he couldn't have possibly imagined how difficult it would be just to get back to the starting line. Sure, history warned that recent Super Bowl losers have stumbled in their effort to return to the big game and that only two of the previous 39 losers returned to win the NFL's big game.

Jermane Mayberry's nine-year run with the Eagles officially ended yesterday when he agreed to a four-year deal with the New Orleans Saints. And it appears as if Ike Reese's seven-year run with the team is about to expire, too. Terms of Mayberry's deal were not disclosed, but his departure was not a surprise. The Eagles made the decision after their Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots that they would go the youth route at guard next season. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported in yesterday's editions that the Falcons were close to a deal with Reese, the Eagles' special-teams captain.

His nickname - "Honey Buns" - is not the most flattering. His body type - a favorite subject of John Madden's - is not beach buff. His college - Robert Morris - is not a football factory and won't be showing up in the BCS rankings in this, or any other, century. With all that going against him, center Hank Fraley still has become a durable anchor in the middle of the Eagles' offensive line. For offensive linemen, there really is only one personal statistic that matters: games started and games played.
