WE HAVE reached that fun point in the preseason where fans and the media, underwhelmed by what they've seen from the hometown team in training camp and the first two exhibition games, start going all Peggy Lee (is that all there is?) on us. You're seeing a lot of that right now regarding the Eagles' running backs, who have averaged only 3.4 yards per carry in their first two preseason games, after finishing 21st in the NFL in yards per attempt a year ago. With the Sept. 11 season opener against Cleveland just 2 1/2 weeks away, their top three running backs currently are a guy who has averaged only nine carries a game the last two years and has managed to play a full season only once in his career (Ryan Mathews)

FORMER Fox 29 traffic reporter Kacie McDonnell has a new love interest. You may recall, she moved from Philly to Kansas City last year to be closer to then-boyfriend Aaron Murray , quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. Months later, the pair announced their engagement, but, alas, by January it was over. McDonnell has now been seen with a celebrity from another sport - Kansas City Royals' slugging first baseman Eric Hosmer . Both McDonnell and Hosmer confirmed rumors by posting pictures on social media of themselves getting up-close and personal over the weekend.

After a six-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and two all-pro selections, Mr. Walsh began his pro coaching career in 1960 with the Dallas Texans of the American Football League.

Winless no more, the Kansas City Chiefs rendered the Baltimore Ravens defenseless with an almost unimaginable display of ball control and patience. Priest Holmes ran for 133 yards and two touchdowns, and the Chiefs wore down the highly touted Baltimore defense in a 27-24 victory last night. Trent Green went 21-for-31 for 223 yards to help Kansas City (1-3) to its first win since Dec. 28. After going 13-3 a year ago, the Chiefs were off to their worst start since 1980. Through three quarters, Kansas City had 22 first downs compared to four for the Ravens and a 361-126 advantage in yardage.

CONSIDERING the carryover effect from the Eagles' season-opening victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, few people likely noticed that rookie coach Doug Pederson began his first real day-after news conference the same way his old boss, Andy Reid, began each one of his for more than a decade in Philadelphia: with an injury update. The first thing Pederson did after stepping to the podium at the NovaCare Center was talk about the health of his team, including the fact that tight end Zach Ertz and cornerback Leodis McKelvin were "day-to-day" after getting hurt Sunday.

Any attempt to project or predict what sort of head coach Doug Pederson will be for the Eagles has to start with his mentor, Andy Reid. And any comparison of Pederson and Reid as coaches has to begin with a comparison of them as players. The similarities between them, at least to this point in Pederson's coaching career, are that apparent and run that deep. Reid was a grunt, an offensive lineman at Brigham Young who was never drafted by an NFL team and never played a snap in the league.

There are many ways for an NFL team to protect a rookie quarterback, and make no mistake: Unless that rookie quarterback is Dan Marino, Peyton Manning, or Andrew Luck, an NFL team should be doing all it can to make the young player's transition to the league as smooth as possible. A team can implement a more conservative game plan, to lessen the demands on the kid. It can keep an extra receiver or two in to block on pass plays. It can trust its defense and special teams to tip each game's balance in its favor.

For students of recent Eagles history, the 2014 NFL scouting combine should stand as the first and best indication of the depth of a conflict that came to define the franchise. Chip Kelly vs. Howie Roseman was a battle born of the pair's personalities, backgrounds and opinions about football, and the quarterback position was grounds for one of their fiercest disagreements. Nick Foles had just unfurled a stunning season in Kelly's first year as head coach, throwing 27 touchdown passes and two interceptions, leading the NFL in quarterback rating, yards per attempt, and touchdown percentage.

Why is Chase Daniel here? In some ways, the question is easy to answer. He is here because of his close relationship with Doug Pederson, who is his head coach with the Eagles and was his offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs. He is here because the Eagles signed him to a three-year contract that gave Daniel $12 million in guaranteed money and that could be worth up to $21 million - a handsome paycheck for a quarterback who has started two games in seven NFL seasons. And he is here because of his intimate knowledge of Pederson's offense.

During the first few minutes of the Eagles' rookie minicamp practice last Friday, Doug Pederson did what everyone expected him to do. No, he did not rock to the gentle groove of the Ghost Town DJs' "My Boo," the first song to play at Pederson's first practice as the Eagles' head coach. Instead, he focused his attention entirely on quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Everett Golson, crossing his arms and eyeballing them as they went through a series of elementary drills: dropping back, pantomiming handoffs and play-action passes, tossing the football to a nearby member of the coaching staff.

When Chase Daniel arrived at the NovaCare Complex on Thursday, his first full day as the Eagles' backup quarterback, his new head coach and old friend Doug Pederson took him on a tour of the facility. The tour lasted 45 minutes, because when Daniel and Pederson get to talking about football or their families or pretty much anything, they find it hard to stop. "We have a very special relationship," Daniel said. That relationship developed over their three years together with the Kansas City Chiefs - Pederson as the offensive coordinator under Andy Reid, Daniel as the No. 2 quarterback behind Alex Smith.

After the season ended, Eagles management told tight end Zach Ertz that the team wanted to sign him to a contract extension during the offseason. Ertz expected it to take longer than three weeks, but the Eagles followed through on Monday. Ertz signed a five-year extension through the 2021 season that will pay him $42.5 million with $20 million guaranteed, according to a league source. The deal makes Ertz one of the highest-paid tight ends in the NFL and also fortifies the 2013 second-round pick as a foundation piece for the franchise.

Doug Pederson doesn't know Sam Bradford. He hasn't met Sam Bradford yet. He first did a deep dive on Sam Bradford the Quarterback in 2010, when Pederson was an offensive quality-control coach for the Eagles and Bradford was leaving Oklahoma for the NFL draft as the No. 1 overall pick. The Eagles were never going to get Bradford in that draft, but Pederson had researched him anyway, poring over every throw of Bradford's terrific college career, forming an impression that Pederson carried with him Tuesday to his introductory news conference as the Eagles head coach.
