Don't be too quick to dismiss the significance of the Eagles' meeting with Robert Griffin III. It happened Thursday night at the scouting combine in Indianapolis, a few days before the Heisman-winning quarterback from Baylor ran a sizzling 4.41 in the 40-yard dash. The most common reaction to the news was that coach Andy Reid and general manager Howie Roseman were doing "due diligence" by getting to know the likely No. 2 pick in this year's draft. Given Reid's perceived need to bounce back strong from an 8-8 travesty of a season, there's no way he can afford to use a first-round pick on a slow-developing position such as quarterback.

YES, LUKE KUECHLY knows a lot of mock drafts have him going to the Eagles in a couple of months, as the 15th overall selection, when the NFL convenes to divide up college talent. "People have mentioned it," Kuechly said the other day. "I have no control over where I end up. " As a Boston College junior who grew up in Cincinnati following the Bengals, Kuechly can't say he knows an awful lot about the Eagles' defense, but he said he'd be happy to come here, of course - the first thing agents teach prospective draftees is to tell reporters that each of the 32 NFL cities is a wonderful place where the draftee would feel privileged to begin his pro career.

When Jeffrey Lurie delivered his Eagles state-of-disarray address, most of the focus was on his decision to give coach Andy Reid another season despite his "unacceptable" 2011 campaign. And rightly so. With the team's decision-makers mostly gathered in Mobile, Ala., for Senior Bowl workouts, it seems like an appropriate time to reflect on another of Lurie's comments: his reply to a question about the team's recent drafts, especially on defense. "I think the analysis is complicated," Lurie said.

MOBILE, Ala. - The Senior Bowl has been something of a proving ground for the Eagles over the last few years. Last year, they saw a 26-year-old left tackle from Baylor impress as he played guard for the first time. Three months later, Danny Watkins was the Eagles' first-round draft pick and started 12 games. Two years ago, Michigan defensive end Brandon Graham was named the Senior Bowl's most valuable player after dominating with five tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble.

IT HAS BEEN more than a week now since Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie told us Andy Reid would be back for a 14th season as the team's head coach. Since then, the question that continues to hold the most traction with the public is whether defensive coordinator Juan Castillo will be replaced and whether fired Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo will be the replacement. It makes sense - because Castillo was such an unconventional choice for the job, and because of all the fourth-quarter leads the team saw evaporate early in the season, and because Spagnuolo is so highly regarded following his work here and in New York as an assistant coach.

Michael Vick stood Monday where Donovan McNabb stood after so many Eagles seasons ended in so many shades of disappointment. Well, technically, Vick stood one locker to the right of McNabb's old corner space. But it was hard, as Vick talked about channeling this year's lessons into hard work toward next season, not to think back to all those seasons McNabb and Andy Reid worked together. One year really sticks out, and its lessons should be paramount for Reid, assuming he remains in charge of tweaking this team for a 14th attempt to win the Super Bowl.

THE DENVER Broncos might have to face former quarterback Kyle Orton with two backup safeties if Brian Dawkins and Quinton Carter can't play in Sunday's showdown with the visiting Kansas City Chiefs, who are trying to deny Tim Tebow a trip to the playoffs. Although Carter (hip) participated in the entire 2-hour workout yesterday, Dawkins was held out of the team's final full-padded practice of the regular season because of a neck injury that has bothered him for much of the month.

Cornerback Asante Samuel has been ruled out for Saturday's crucial game at Dallas, the Eagles said Friday. Samuel suffered a hamstring injury against the New York Jets and missed the last three practices. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will start in his place. Joselio Hanson will play in the slot in the nickel package. Samuel's absence could be crucial against a Cowboys team that features three significant threats at wide receiver and a big-time tight end. Rodgers-Cromartie, who was acquired in the trade with Arizona for Kevin Kolb during training camp, filled in for Samuel when he left in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

Asante Samuel did not practice with the Eagles for the second straight day, putting his availability for Saturday's game at Dallas very much in question. Eagles coach Andy Reid said that Samuel tried to run on his strained hamstring Tuesday, but that the cornerback felt sore afterward and was held out from Wednesday's and Thursday's sessions. "Asante is still a little sore, and we'll just see how he does here over the next couple days," Reid said. Because of the short workweek, Thursday was the last strenuous practice before the Eagles board a flight Friday afternoon.
