I'M TIRED of listening to Andy Reid mumble his way through the excuses! Tired of watching Donovan McNabb dancing like Mike, but not even coming close to playing like Jordan! What the Eagles need is a new way of thinking between the ears at quarterback, and a fresh pair of eyes at head coach! Anthony D. Johnson Philadelphia I'VE BEEN a loyal Eagles fan since 1946 and have attended or watched almost every game since then. Well, if Donovan McNabb is back next year, cross me off your list.

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.

STU Bykofsky's column on the Columbus Day Parade was extremely disrespectful and downright offensive to the Italian-American community. My biggest concern is the fact that if the same thoughts and language were used to describe other ethnic communities in our area, Mr. Bykofsky would be relieved of his duties and the Daily News would be facing major political and financial implications.

In a quiet suburb north of Boston, aJewish cemetery sits next to a small lake bordered by a paved trail. Mothers pushing strollers and joggers pass the shoulder-high wrought-iron fence that for more than a century has enclosed the final resting place for the members of Temple of Israel synagogue. Modest square limestones mark the dearly departed. Kaplan. Hanauer. Kahn. Weinstein. Golden. Smith. Toward the center of the cemetery, three towering pine trees provide shade through the four seasons.

Kolb comes out firing Kevin Kolb, highly criticized for being too passive last week, came out firing on his first drive. He hit a long cross-field throw to Brent Celek for 32 yards, fired a pass to Jason Avant despite a small window, and bought time before finding Celek again for a touchdown. Critics quickly answered. At least early. Manhandled After going in for left tackle Jason Peters, who was on the sideline with a knee injury, King Dunlap showed why he has been unable to get on the field during his three years with the Eagles.

The father embraced the son late in the afternoon April 28 when the news arrived. With the 36th overall pick in the NFL draft, the Eagles had selected Kevin Kolb, quarterback from the University of Houston.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game: 1. Kevin Kolb's ball security: The young Eagles quarterback has not done a very good job of protecting the ball in the few playing opportunities he's had. He threw four picks in 34 attempts last season, including that memorable one vs. Baltimore that Ed Reed took coast-to-coast for a touchdown. He needs to make good decisions and keep the turnovers to a minimum.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch provides five keys that fans should keep their eyes on. Here is how things panned out during yesterday's game: 1. Good times on third down: Coming into the game, the Redskins had been inept on third down. The offense was last in the league in third-down efficiency, converting just six of 33 (18.2 percent) opportunities. Yesterday, they converted five of 11 (45 percent). The Eagles - who came in having coverted 44.1 percent - were successful on just five of 14 third-down opportunities (36 percent.
