Two days before Christmas, the Eagles got a huge gift. They got to play against the New Orleans Saints' secondary. To their credit, the Eagles took advantage and shredded one of the league's worst pass defenses, with wide receivers Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown both having big days in the Eagles' 38-23 victory. Each caught six passes, with Brown scoring on a 31-yard strike and Curtis scoring on a 7-yard slant from Donovan McNabb, as well as on a touchdown recovery of McNabb's first-quarter fumble in the end zone.

Eagles rookie quarterback Kevin Kolb probably won't spend a lot of time looking at the highlights of his NFL debut - mainly because there weren't any. After making 11 catches for 221 yards, wide receiver Kevin Curtis was just 16 yards from the franchise single-game mark of 237, set by Hall of Famer Tommy McDonald on Dec. 10, 1961. But with 3 minutes remaining and the Eagles leading, 56-21, coach Andy Reid wasn't going to risk quarterback Donovan McNabb's health trying for a team record.

THE OKLAHOMAN newspaper got some flak for describing Thunder star Kevin Durant as "Mr. Unreliable" in a headline yesterday. Not from the five-time All-Star, but from his mother, Wanda Pratt. Pratt, who tweets as @MamaDurant, wrote "Typical Oklahoman on Kevin. UNBELIEVABLE!! KEVIN is RELIABLE!!!" The Oklahoman responded by apologizing. "We take great pride in our headlines about big sporting events and news in Oklahoma," sports editor Mike Sherman said in a statement.

With training camp less than a week away, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is the Eagles' only unsigned draft pick. But Maclin's agent, Jim Steiner, said there is nothing to worry about. The Eagles and Steiner, who also represents former Eagles safety Brian Dawkins, had preliminary discussions last week, and "negotiations should intensify in the middle to latter part of this week," Steiner said yesterday. Maclin, the No. 19 overall pick, is far from the only first-round selection without a deal.

THE INDIANAPOLIS Colts have hired former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel as a game-day consultant. Coach Jim Caldwell says Tressel will serve primarily as a consultant on replays, which will allow the other coaches to focus on their individual jobs without having to worry about making decisions on replay reviews. Tressel resigned at Ohio State on May 30 following an investigation that turned up evidence his players had received improper benefits. Caldwell says he chose Tressel because the two have had a good relationship for a long time and that it fills a job he'd been looking to fill for several years.

Practice? Jon Runyan's left knee hurt so badly after Wednesday's practice that he took the next three workouts off, hoping to make his 190th straight start. After the way he played last night against the Browns, expect his workload to be similarly limited as the season's grind continues. "He'll probably be a little tender today on that knee," coach Andy Reid said. "He's a warrior. A very mentally tough guy. " "Isn't that the way it's supposed to be done," Runyan asked afterward.
