If there was ever a player who had reason to believe in that folksy saying "Keep on truckin'," it is Ronnie Dixon, the Eagles' second-year defensive tackle, who is likely to rack up more playing time today, against the Saints, than he has in any other game this season. Dixon might even get his first start if he has to replace Andy Harmon, who aggravated a groin injury against the Raiders last Sunday. Coincidentally, the 292-pound Dixon started his career in New Orleans, as the Saints' sixth-round selection in the 1993 NFL draft.

Touching down Friday in Chester County, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said he was in the race for the long haul and had not considered dropping out. "We haven't even had a discussion about a discussion" of ending his candidacy, Santorum said after arriving at a small airport in West Chester. The former senator from Pennsylvania returned to the state after a period of intense campaigning in Florida, just days ahead of the primary there. He has an uphill battle to force his way into what has become a fight between Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

Now that the Eagles have revealed their accelerated tempo on offense, curiosity abounds about whether they can sustain that pace through 16 games. This is one of the pressing questions of the Chip Kelly Experiment, although it's one that hasn't been a concern yet. College is different than the NFL. There are more players and fewer games in college. But Kelly still has one inherent advantage: He has spent months preparing his team for a certain style, when other teams spend one week to prepare for the Eagles.

Deborah Mazzone remembers a tough day on the job, one of those days when someone questioned her capabilities. She bumped into the owner of a large construction company for whom her hauling firm was working. "And his comment to me was, 'Tell me who runs the business, your husband?' " She offered to climb in her truck and demonstrate who was in charge. "He backed down real quick," she recalled. Mazzone, in her early 30s, is president and owner of Bedrock Hauling Inc. of Cinnaminson.

There is nothing more dangerous in life than giving Randy Johnson another chance to beat you. And yesterday, the Baltimore Orioles did exactly that. By losing to the Seattle Mariners, 4-2, in the third game of their best-of-five playoff series, they allowed Johnson the chance to pitch today, to make up for one of his worst performances in years in Game 1 and to make up for three losses to the Orioles just this year. Johnson gave up five runs in five innings in Game 1 and struck out just one of the last 20 hitters he faced.

MIDDLETOWN, N.J. - His popularity surging because of his handling of Superstorm Sandy, Gov. Chris Christie announced Monday that he will seek re-election so that he can continue to lead the state through a recovery effort he said will extend past his first term. "The public needs to know that I'm in this for the long haul, that the person who has helped to lead them through the initial crisis wants to help lead them through the rebuilding and restoration of our state," he said at a news briefing in Middletown, where he had come to thank first-responders and volunteers.

At the corner of Haddon and Powell Avenues in Collingswood, you can pop into Collings North, the newly opened final phase of a development in the town's center. And soon, you'll also be able to pop in to visit the developer himself. Brad Ingerman, whose company's headquarters are moving from Cherry Hill, will occupy the ground floor, potentially for a long time. "We're not flippers, we build and hold," Ingerman says. "Fifteen years is our minimum holding period. We still own two-thirds of our projects.

When punter Daniel Pasquariello of Australia came halfway around the world last summer to enroll at Penn State as a preferred walk-on, he faced his share of obstacles, not the least of which was never having played in a football game under American rules. Then again, there was one aspect of living here that came around right away - developing an American accent. "He does a great job of going back and forth with his accent just to throw us off guard from time to time," defensive end C.J. Olaniyan said.

A HEAD-COACHING job opens up at USC and everyone wonders whether Chip Kelly might hop the next flight back to the Pac-12. Mack Brown resigns under pressure at the University of Texas and rumors start circulating that Kelly could be headed to Austin. In his first NFL season, the guy has done a loaves-and-fishes thing with an Eagles team that won just four games last year. He has proved he can hold his own with the best coaching minds in the business. And yet, and yet, and yet, there still are reasonably intelligent people out there who continue to believe that Kelly is just a short-term renter in the NFL. That he's still a college guy at heart and will be returning to a campus soon.

PHILADELPHIA Some people jog for exercise, some for fun, some to lose weight or sleep better. Nicole Duchman runs for her health - physical and mental. For her, the steady movement of legs and torso across pavement is a way to allay the emotional trauma of war, experienced as an Army specialist in Iraq. Diagnosed with post-traumatic stress syndrome that can cause her to become irritable and frustrated, running offers respite and freedom. "It calms me down, lets me focus, lets me settle," Duchman said.

He thought finding a house in Cherry Hill, his hometown, would be a cinch. Instead, David Griffith and his wife toured 43 properties back in 1990 before settling on a two-story, gray-sided dwelling on a quiet street. The allure of shopping malls, the close proximity to city nightlife, and the location a stone's throw from family were key to keeping the couple rooted in the township, but price was the top priority. "We weren't going to kill ourselves for the five-bedroom mansion and a soaring cathedral entry," he says.

A week after Chip Kelly lifted the curtain on his practices and Michael Vick had the slight edge on Nick Foles in first-team repetitions, the roles were reversed and the second-year quarterback was first up with the "ones. " Foles took 21 snaps to Vick's 15 in seven-on-seven and team drills on Monday, and if it weren't for the great interest in the Eagles' quarterback competition, it might have felt a little silly logging repetitions in May with players running around in shorts. But what the snap count did reveal, if we're to trust that Kelly's closed practices weren't significantly different, is that the Eagles coach wasn't lying.
