The Eagles announced the death of two former assistant coaches. Ken Iman, an offensive line coach from 1976 to '86 under three head coaches, died Saturday at his home in Springfield. He was 71. Lew Carpenter, the wide receivers coach from 1990 to '94 under two head coaches, died yesterday in Texas. He was 78. Both were members of the 1961 and 1962 NFL champion Packers as players. Iman played 15 seasons as a center with Green Bay (1960-64) and the Los Angeles Rams (1965-1974)

Three Eagles deserving of serious Pro Bowl consideration have been voted Most Valuable Players by their teammates. They are: Offense: Herschel Walker, who also was so honored in 1993. Defense: Andy Harmon, his first major award as an Eagle. Special Teams: Ken Rose, now a three-time honoree. The three Bert Bell Award winners will be honored next Thursday at the 33rd annual Bert Bell Memorial Awards Dinner at the Wyndham Franklin Plaza. "These are three great football players and excellent, excellent leaders, and I'm really proud of them," coach Rich Kotite said.

After a humiliating season in which his offensive line allowed 104 sacks, Eagles assistant coach Ken Iman suffered an inevitable fate yesterday. He got sacked himself. In a statement issued by the club, coach Buddy Ryan said Iman would not be retained for the 1987 season, thereby ending the aide's 11-year association with the Eagles. "I've decided to look for new direction with the offensive line," Ryan said. "Ken is a good coach and a hard worker, but I feel we need a change in his area at this time.

Though Richard Cooper has been a key part of the offensive line's surge toward excellence, it is easy to see why many Eagles fans were quick to write him off. After all, Cooper plays offensive tackle, a position that has been a quagmire for the team since Jerry Sisemore and Stan Walters left in the mid-1980s. From Kevin Allen through Antone Davis through Steve Wallace, Eagles fans have watched enough bad performances by offensive tackles to grow perhaps a tad cynical about the latest quick fix. Cooper understood that when he signed as a free agent back in February.

Highlights, lowlights, sidelights . . . or, trying to sort out the NFL's annual star search, which got under way yesterday: THE BIG WINNERS 1. Dallas: Even though the Rocket blasted off to Canada, the Cowboys still came up with Miami defensive tackle Russell Maryland and Tennessee wideout Alvin Harper. And that was just for starters. The NFC East just got a whole lot stronger. 2. Atlanta: The Falcons filled pressing needs when they took Nebraska cornerback Bruce Pickens at No. 3 and Colorado receiver Mike Pritchard at No. 13, then acquired veteran defensive back Tim McKyer from the Dolphins.

THE MOST important quarter of Tra Thomas' impressive career was the one he didn't play. It was easy to forget during Thomas' retirement announcement - under the crescendo of a highlight film and in Thomas' teary words of thanks - that Andy Reid once benched Tra Thomas. Thomas stood on the sideline, humbled, helmet in hand, for the first quarter of the 14th game of Reid's first season, at Dallas. He was hard to miss; a 6-7, 350-pound testament to potential and petulance. Thomas, a second-year player, had taken himself out of the previous week's game with a mild groin strain.

The popular vote has been cast. On Monday, the decision will be in the hands of the court that really matters - the NFL's players and coaches. That gives a handful of Eagles one more game to make their case for Pro Bowl consideration. Because that game is against perhaps the league's worst team, the Cleveland Browns, there is an opportunity to make a strong last impression before the final vote. "If you try to pad your stats, you'll get torn up," said cornerback Troy Vincent, who joined safety Brian Dawkins in last year's Pro Bowl.

The scientists behind the Manhattan Project managed to unleash the power of the atom in just a few short years, with a world war raging around them. President Kennedy promised in 1961 that America would win the race to the moon. Eight years later, Neil Armstrong made good on that promise. In April 1985, the Eagles selected an offensive tackle named Kevin Allen in the first round of the NFL draft. They were so determined to solidify their left tackle position, they passed on Jim Lachey, whom they considered a guard, and a wide receiver by the name of Jerry Rice.

There was no trumpeting fanfare, no "Welcome Ron" banner. The red carpet for the newest Eagle, Ron Solt, included a rousing set of Buddy Ryan's infamous up-downs and a two-fisted greeting from self-appointed Welcome Wagon delegate Doug Bartlett of special teams. For more than two weeks, the 6-foot-3, 288-pound Solt had been an elusive acquisition for the Eagles. For a while, there was considerable doubt whether he would report at all. But yesterday, he finally was on the Eagles' practice field, the first Philadelphia offensive lineman with a Pro Bowl appearance to his credit since Jerry Sisemore retired.

THERE IS NO JUSTICE on the Eagles' starting offensive line this week. And there might not be any Justice for a long time. Starting left tackle William "Tra" Thomas returned from minor knee surgery for the final week of "organized team activity" (known to most of us as minicamp). Previously, Winston Justice took all the first-team reps at Thomas' spot. Justice, the guy from USC the Eagles were thrilled to be able to draft in the second round in 2006, never got on the field as a rookie.

When the letter from the league office arrived in Tra Thomas' mail slot last week, the circuit was complete. All of the Eagles' offensive linemen have received fines from the NFL for their on-field exploits. Thomas was tagged for $7,500 for a late hit on Washington linebacker LaVar Arrington. "I laughed at it," right tackle Jon Runyan said. "He was the only one of us who hadn't had one to that point. " Runyan was fined after the Eagles' game with Arizona at Veterans Stadium in October.

If nothing else, the Eagles deserve credit for resilience. Spitting in the face of their woeful history, the Birds took offensive tackle Tra Thomas Saturday with their first pick in the NFL draft, the 11th overall choice. They did it despite a shameful record of failing to develop their high offensive line picks into accomplished professionals and retain them. In fact, the last high pick to meet both criteria was Jerry Sisemore, in 1973. They did it despite Thomas testing positive - twice - for marijuana while attending Florida State, including once last year.

The next offensive lineman signed by the Eagles will be the 81st to pass through the organization's doors since tackle Jerry Sisemore made the Pro Bowl after the 1981 season. Thirty-four have been drafted and 46 others were signed as free agents or acquired in trades. Not much of what the Eagles have tried over the last 15 years has produced positive results. For every David Alexander and Ron Heller, there have been two or three William Boatwrights, Louis Cheeks's or Joe Sims'.

Friction gets a bad rap. Think about it. Without friction, you'd be sitting in the dark, shivering. Friction creates sparks, which are heat and light and energy. Those are all good things, necessary things, so why does everyone think of friction as a bad thing? The Beatles made some of their greatest music when Lennon and McCartney were barely speaking. Hemingway might have decked Fitzgerald, but their rivalry pushed each writer to do his best work. Gauguin and van Gogh might not have been the friendliest housemates, but their paintings turned out all right.

When it's really going right, when the holes are wide and the quarterback's uniform is spotless, it's almost telepathic. The five men on the offensive line function like a 10-legged machine. "You get to a point where you can look at the guy next to you, and he looks at you, and you know what's coming next," Eagles center Steve Everitt said. "You don't even have to make calls half the time. " Everitt played on such a line in Cleveland. The players hung out together. They worked out together.
