MIAMI - Dion Jordan is built like Udonis Haslem. He wants to play like Lawrence Taylor. Jordan, the Miami Dolphins' latest first-round selection, arrived in Miami to great fanfare Saturday. Flashbulbs, his general manager and a lucky season-ticket holder were among those welcoming him to town. But with a passing glance, one could easily confuse Jordan with an NBA small forward and not a budding NFL defensive lineman. He stands more than 6-foot-6, but weighs a mere 250 pounds.

Winning is great. Winning a lot is better. Ask the Penn and Harvard football teams, whose stouthearted lads carry identical 7-0 records into Harvard Stadium today. Ask the NHL's New York Islanders, who recently basked in the thrill of a 9-0-1-1 start this season. Who knows? The team that comes out of today's Penn-Harvard matchup undefeated may be on the road to its own history-making win streak. And if they're students of sports history, they may find inspiration (and instruction)

Long before Sam Bradford's left shoulder sagged and his brain became foggy from a third-quarter hit during the Eagles' debilitating, 20-19 defeat Sunday to the Miami Dolphins, it was fair to wonder exactly what Chip Kelly was doing with his up-tempo football team that seems to be able to accelerate in reverse just as fast as it does in drive. What, for example, was the Eagles coach doing when he put Bradford in harm's way on the final play of the Carolina game a few weeks ago by calling a deep throw with his team down by 11 points?

The Eagles' game at the New York Giants on Dec. 17 has been moved to a 4:15 p.m. start, the NFL announced yesterday. The game, likely to have NFC wild-card implications, can be seen on Fox. The change was made because of the NFL's new flex scheduling for Sunday night games. Kansas City will play at San Diego at 8:15 on NBC. The Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills game also will shift to 4:05 on CBS.

The Soul signed free-agent quarterback Tim Levcik and released wide receiver/defensive back Van Johnson. Levcik, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, played briefly in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Miami Dolphins. A four-year letterman at Robert Morris University, Levcik was a three-time all-Northeast Conference selection and was the league's offensive player of the year in both his junior and senior season. The Soul have begun their first training camp in the Arena Football League and will open the season against New Orleans at 3 p.m. Feb. 8 at the Wachovia Center.

The Eagles filled out their coaching staff on Monday, finalizing the hire of Bill Musgrave as quarterbacks coach, the promotion of Mike Dawson from defensive quality control coach to assistant defensive line coach, and the addition of Michael Clay in Dawson's former role. The Inquirer reported the Musgrave and Dawson moves last week. Musgrave replaces Bill Lazor, who was hired as the Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator. Dawson replaces Erik Chinander, who was hired by Oregon as a defensive assistant.

MIAMI DOLPHINS teammates should have looked out for one of their own. Had they, they could have easily handled the racially tinged, testosterone-infused apparent hazing of biracial player Jonathan Martin themselves. I'm not advocating an out-and-out ass-kicking, but as men, they should have banded together and explained to teammate Richie Incognito that the ethnic slurs he was subjecting their teammate to weren't cool and wouldn't be tolerated. So, why didn't they shut it down?

Running back Ricky Williams has prepared a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell requesting reinstatement back into the league, his agent said over the weekend. Williams was suspended last April for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy for the fourth time. Williams is not required to wait to send the letter until April 27, which marks the 1-year anniversary of the date his suspension was upheld by the league. The formality of sending the letter will signal the start of the reinstatement process, which includes an investigation into Williams' behavior since last year.

LAST THURSDAY the NFL inadvertently and unintentionally made a case for paying college players. Minutes before he was expected to go within the top three or four picks in the NFL draft, Laremy Tunsil found out both his Twitter and Instagram accounts had been hacked, sharing with any potential future employer a two-year-old video of him smoking out of a gas mask bong and messages suggesting he was paid under the table while playing for Ole Miss. Tunsil tumbled to the Dolphins as the 13th pick overall - the Eagles' original draft position - costing the offensive tackle by, even modest estimates, more than $8 million in lost wages.

In Howie Roseman's telling, the biggest trade of the NFL offseason so far came about because of a couple of well-timed takeout orders in Indianapolis. At the NFL combine last month, the hotel suite for the Eagles' player-personnel staff and coaches was just two doors down from the Miami Dolphins'. Dinnertime rolled around. "There are a couple of places in Indy that are really good," Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, said Thursday. "So we were trying each other's food.

It all began, really, with the soft cornerback's tender shoulder. The Eagles greeted the dawn of the NFL's free-agency period Wednesday with the same shop-till-you-drop enthusiasm that they've often displayed in recent years - once they held a little yard sale themselves, that is. They signed three players - safety Rodney McLeod, guard Brandon Brooks, and linebacker Nigel Bradham - who might just be entering the primes of their careers. They allocated $12 million in guaranteed money for quarterback Chase Daniel, whose two starts and 77 passes worth of NFC action have apparently been enough to earn the implicit trust of the Eagles' new head coach, Doug Pederson.

ASSISTED BY a stroke of good fortune in lodging accommodations at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last month, Howie Roseman worked on parallel tracks to begin his overhaul of the Eagles. One track involved the trades that eventually exiled Byron Maxwell, DeMarco Murray and Kiko Alonso, created cap room to make moves in free agency, and achieved Roseman's goal of getting the Eagles into the top 10 of the upcoming draft. The other track was targeting and laying the groundwork to sign key pending free agents, for whom the cap space would be needed.

A YEAR AGO, the Eagles signed a shutdown corner who, it turned out, couldn't shut anyone down, and they traded their all-time leading rusher for a difference-making linebacker who ended up not making a difference. Then they signed the reigning NFL rushing leader, and that didn't work out very well, either. But it seems that when Howie Roseman moved his office back to the football operations area at NovaCare a few months ago, one of the tools Roseman brought back with him was a giant eraser.

THE TIMING of Monday's trade of Byron Maxwell was remarkably fortuitous if you happened to be a sports writer who already had spent much of his day searching for an anecdote to lead into a column about the fool's gold that is NFL free agency. (Clears throat). And so it was that the Byron Maxwell era was relegated to the same historical waste bucket as virtually every cornerback era since Sheldon Brown, Lito Sheppard and, arguably, Asante Samuel. Nnamdi Asomugha to Cary Williams to Maxwell.

WHEN SAM BRADFORD walked off the field, carrying his left arm at an awkward angle, the Eagles were 4-4, and were holding a 16-13 third-quarter lead over the visiting Miami Dolphins. This week, Bradford will get back behind the wheel and try to drive the team out of a 4-7 ditch, at the 10-1 New England Patriots. The Eagles last won at New England in 1987. So. Welcome back! "Obviously, the last two weeks have been tough, but I think our effort and energy at practice this week has been great . . . It would be easy for us to hang our heads and get down and go through the motions out there, but that hasn't been the case at all," said Bradford, who told reporters he expects to play this week, barring any sort of setback.

Jeff Fisher promised the Nick Foles era was not over in St. Louis after the Rams coach announced he had benched the former Eagles quarterback Monday, and that's probably true. You have to believe Case Keenum, the undrafted QB du jour for the Rams, will make it possible for Foles to start again before the season is over. This, of course, is no time for the Eagles or Chip Kelly to gloat about the trade that brought Sam Bradford to Philadelphia from the Rams. The Eagles, their coach, and their quarterback have enough issues of their own, including a 4-5 record that is identical to the disappointing mark that helped send Foles to the bench in St. Louis.

SOMEONE ASKED Chip Kelly if the Miami Dolphins' touchdown pass that bounced off Connor Barwin, ricocheted high in the air, and came down in the end zone in the hands of Miami's Jarvis Landry for the winning fourth-quarter points Sunday was "bad luck. " "Well, it's not good luck," Kelly said. Safety Malcolm Jenkins said he didn't know the pass was blocked, which made Landry fair game. Instead of knocking Landry down, Jenkins hugged him ineffectually as he caught the ball. A reporter told Barwin that the guys in the secondary didn't know the ball was tipped.

The Eagles counted on their special teams to help win games last season, but too often this fall, those same units have been contributing factors in losses. That was the case again Sunday in a 20-19 defeat to the Miami Dolphins. The Eagles had a punt blocked, and they missed a 32-yard field goal, two plays that were big parts of the loss. And it's not the first time either has happened this year. It was the second punt blocked against the Eagles this season, and they now have missed two field goals inside 40 yards.
