Winston Justice said playing right tackle is like riding a bicycle. Since he last played there, though, the Eagles have replaced a mountain bike with a racing model. And with a knee that's still less than 100 percent, it's unclear whether Justice can even get back on the bike. Questions about Justice's ability to return to tackle were prompted by King Dunlap's recent spate of back spasms. Dunlap started at left tackle last week for the injured Jason Peters and was slated to fill that spot again Sunday at Washington.

The Eagles announced yesterday they have agreed to terms with three of their 2008 draft picks - cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu, linebacker Joe Mays, and offensive tackle King Dunlap. The Eagles now have seven of their 10 picks in the most recent draft under contract. Ikegwuonu, selected in the fourth round after completing his junior season at Wisconsin, is expected to sit out the 2008 season after suffering a right-knee injury during workouts in preparation for the NFL combine.

BREAKING down the Eagles' 20-13 win over the Redskins on Sunday: Spotlight on Herremans Seven-year veteran Todd Herremans made just the sixth start of his career at left tackle because of injuries to Jason Peters and King Dunlap. As with his earlier move from left guard to right tackle, he made a seamless transition. Run defense The Eagles didn't abandon the wide nine, but they used it less, particularly on first down, when they lined up in a tighter, more traditional, four-man front, and also moved their linebackers closer to the line of scrimmage.

LES BOWEN Not a lot of hesitation here for me. Don't like King Dunlap vs. John Abraham. Can't imagine Michael Vick can really play effectively this soon after his injury. Overall, the Eagles have done very little to make me want to pick them over a 4-1 team. You can question how legit the Falcons are, given the teams they've beaten, but this year you can do that with anybody, certainly including the Eagles. If I were inclined to pick the Eagles, I might lean on the fact that they have to win a home game sooner or later, or that Andy Reid is 7-1 against Atlanta.

He came, he saw, he left without a contract. Demetrius Bell was still a free agent when he departed Philadelphia after visiting with the Eagles over the weekend. The left tackle has met with four teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals, and Green Bay Packers, since the start of free agency last month. But he remains on the market even though the Eagles were scrambling to find a starting left tackle after Jason Peters suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon last week.

AGENDA : Who: Eagles at Pittsburgh Steelers What: Second game of the preseason When: Tonight, 8 Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh TV: FOX29 Radio: WYSP (94.1-FM), WIP (610-AM), ESPN (97.3-FM) FIVE THINGS TO WATCH: 1. DeSean Jackson: Wideout makes his debut after about a week of camp. Wants a new deal before risking injury too extensively. Looked great at Lehigh. 2. Right tackle: This is a huge chance for a huge guy, King Dunlap, who seemed to be a bit of an afterthought until Ryan Harris' back started bothering him. 3. Kickoffs: Is that facet of the game really going to be as boring as it was last week?

What we're talking about after the Eagles' 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers last night: Who's the starting QB? Kevin Kolb turned in an impressive performance against the Niners, completing 21 of 31 passes for 253 yards. If Michael Vick can play next week, will he start? Another big day for Shady: Playing with a fractured rib, LeSean McCoy rushed for 92 yards and had a 29-yard touchdown run. He also had five catches for 46 yards. Better against the run: After giving up 169 rushing yards to the Redskins last week, Sean McDermott's defense did a much better job against the run last night, holding Frank Gore to 2.9 yards per carry.
