EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The stadium cameras panned to Mark Herzlich about an hour before the start of Sunday night's game between the New York Giants and the Eagles. Herzlich was on his back, stretching, sweat dripping down his forehead and blending with the eye black he'd smeared onto each cheek. Herzlich looked fierce, determined. He looked like the starting middle linebacker for the Giants. He was. Herzlich, 24, a graduate of Conestoga High, a graduate of Boston College, and a survivor of cancer, replaced injured linebacker Michael Boley in the Giants' starting lineup.

Mark Herzlich is sitting at Table 40 in a posh midtown Manhattan ballroom during a charity event on the final Friday in October. About half the members of the New York Giants are there - a gala for coach Tom Coughlin's Jay Fund, which raises money for children's cancer - including franchise quarterback Eli Manning. Even so, the donors in attendance continue to flock to Table 40. They want to meet Herzlich. They want to meet the man who survived cancer and who is now a rookie special-teams contributor for the Giants.

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The summer's coolest temperatures and a sky as crystalline as Boston's John Hancock Tower, which glimmered on the near horizon, infused Boston College's stony, tony campus with a hint of autumn and football on this August Friday. As if they felt it, too, a family of visitors posed at the Doug Flutie statue outside Alumni Stadium, parents and children wrapped around the sculpted depiction of the Eagles quarterback as he wound up, Juan Marichal-like, to unleash his legendary Hail Mary pass.

INDIANAPOLIS - Cancer threatened to prevent Mark Herzlich from getting here, but getting here is what helped Herzlich beat cancer. "Once I got diagnosed, I said a prayer every morning, every night, to be cancer-free, to play football again," the linebacker said Sunday at the NFL scouting combine. "That pathway, that goal is what got me to the end. " Herzlich, who grew up in Wayne and graduated from Conestoga High, said he often talks to cancer patients who struggle without having such a clear focus.

CHESTNUT Hill, Mass. - All around Boston College's Alumni Stadium, in every section, fans wore jerseys with the number 94. "That really, really hit me," Sandy Herzlich said of all the shirts honoring his son. Dad remembers just a couple of years ago, when he hand-crafted No. 94 jerseys for friends and family. "I probably broke every copyright law," he joked. Mark Herzlich, at the center of it all, understood there was a lot of feeling in the stadium. He was a little surprised, the Conestoga High graduate said, that for him "the emotion didn't stray at all from football.

Rookie linebacker Mark Herzlich, from Conestoga High and Boston College, may get his first NFL start on Sunday for the New York Giants. Starter Michael Boley is doubtful with a hamstring strain. "This is what I've been waiting all my life for, just a chance," Herzlich said. "The biggest thing to keep in mind is to just stay poised and play football. " Herzlich, at 6-foot-4, 246 pounds, has impressed Fewell with his first-team work this week. "He's a big man, and he's physical," Fewell said.

Boston College senior linebacker Mark Herzlich disclosed yesterday that he has cancer. Herzlich, from Conestoga High, was diagnosed earlier this week with Ewing's Sarcoma after undergoing tests for leg pain. He has returned home and will undergo more tests. Ewing's Sarcoma is a malignant tumor often found in bone or soft tissue. "Obviously, I was shocked," Herzlich said in a statement. "I had been extremely focused on preparing for my senior season at Boston College and for life beyond that.

Already in tune with the future, Trey Womack doesn't think he will have a problem catching up with the college beat. Womack, a Malvern Prep senior wide receiver and cornerback from Springfield, Delaware County, has orally committed to attend Virginia on a football scholarship. Primarily recruited as a defensive back, Womack said last night that, because of his 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash, the Cavaliers have told him that he might play other positions in the future. "I think I could play some wide receiver there," Womack said.

Bill McGovern remembers everything about the moment he learned Mark Herzlich might die. It was the spring of 2009. He had started driving away from a Staten Island high school, one more stop in a string of recruiting visits for Boston College's football program. He noticed a voice-mail message on his cellphone. It was from Herzlich's father, Sandy. McGovern was Boston College's defensive coordinator and linebackers coach then, and his best inside linebacker - hell, the best player on the team - was Herzlich, a native of Wayne, a graduate of Conestoga High School, a certain first-round selection in the 2010 NFL draft.

The Eagles need to fix their special teams, which allowed two touchdowns against Denver and have struggled for the last two weeks. Special-teams coordinator Dave Fipp said that the performances were "not up to our standards" and that it starts with coaching. But he does not think that personnel changes are necessary. "I believe in the players that we have, I believe that guys are continuing to improve," Fipp said. "We'll continue to get better. There's a few bumps in the road.

IT'S A LITTLE unusual, because sporadically, home does come up in the locker room. Not just any locker room. The inner sanctum of the New York Giants. The hated Giants. So they've learned to laugh about it. Call them the Philadelphia Giants. A quintet of guys who grew up watching, living, breathing and dreaming as kids of someday playing for the Eagles. They were raised on the Eagles. Now these guys all play for Big Blue - that dreaded NFC East rival that has won two Super Bowls in the last 6 years.

Norv Turner is still coaching the Chargers, perhaps to the chagrin of some fans, as San Diego pulled to 4-4 at the season's midpoint. The Chargers were able to call off the dogs howling for Turner's job - at least for now - by beating the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-13, Thursday night. San Diego rediscovered the end zone, took advantage of four more turnovers by the sad-sack Chiefs, and snapped a three-game losing streak that had riled up the paying customers to the point that the Chargers needed corporate support to lift the local TV blackout.

New York Giants middle linebacker Mark Herzlich isn't preparing any differently for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's just a little more exciting for the cancer survivor who was the feel-good story of last season after making the Giants' roster. Herzlich, a graduate of Conestoga High School and Boston College, has a chance to get back in the starting lineup with Chase Blackburn nursing a hamstring injury. Blackburn, who was hurt in the Giants' 29-24 win over Dallas, did not practice Wednesday.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - New York Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich was an Eagles fan while attending Conestoga High School, so few people are more excited about Sunday night's game at Lincoln Financial Field between the two NFC East rivals. "It's one of the best rivalries in football anywhere," Herzlich said. "To be part of it and to know what the Philly fans think and to be on the other side of it is pretty neat for me. " Actually, just being on the football field is a great experience for the second-year linebacker from Boston College.

TOM COUGHLIN talked about the usual pros and cons after watching the video of the Giants' preseason win over the Jets, and the report on injuries to running back Ahmad Bradshaw and rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley seemed OK. What the Giants coach had a problem with Sunday was a video of Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul throwing second-year cornerback Prince Amukamara into an ice bath at training camp at the University at Albany. It was tweeted by punter Steve Weatherford before Saturday's 26-3 win over the Jets, and it contains some inappropriate language.

In addition to the champs, chumps and rebuilding Redskins, the Eagles will play 10 games against non-divisional opponents. The home highlights include visits from local boys who've done good (Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco) and the first look at Cam Newton. Among the interesting road trips, the Birds play at Pittsburgh and Arizona. And because they're also visiting New Orleans, we have imposed a restriction on that town's signature drink. The Eagles have five prime-time games, with two Sundays, two Mondays and a Thursday night game.

INDIANAPOLIS - Turns out, Vontaze Burfict's assessment of himself jibes perfectly with how a lot of Eagles fans see him. Birds fans - some of them, anyhow - are so tired of undersized, colorless linebacking, that they have latched onto the wild man from Arizona State as exactly what their team needs, a big-hitting, flamboyant, Jeremiah Trotteresque force in the middle. Never mind that draft analysts have pushed Burfict (6-1, 248) well out of the first round, based on a disappointing senior season that included a locker-room fight with a teammate, numerous personal fouls, accusations that he was out of shape, and less difference-making play than his blow-'em-up style might promise.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Mark Herzlich spent Sunday watching the New York Giants' stunning win at the Green Bay Packers from his couch. But there's a chance the linebacker may be in San Francisco and play in Sunday's NFC championship game when the Giants visit the 49ers. Herzlich, 24, practiced Wednesday for the first time since suffering a broken ankle against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 28. The rookie was limited, though, and said he might not factor in the Giants' plans even if he is healthy enough to play.
