Michael Lewis has prepared himself for this opportunity. If Eagles safety Blaine Bishop cannot play tomorrow against the Seattle Seahawks because of a strained groin, Lewis, a rookie, will take his place. Eagles coach Andy Reid said yesterday that Bishop has improved this week, but that he is day-to-day. It could be a game-time decision. Lewis (6-foot-1, 211 pounds) should be ready if Bishop sits. The second-round pick out of Colorado has impressed Eagles coaches and players with his work ethic.

Eagles strong safety Michael Lewis was beaten first, then battered, and finally benched. Lewis had a long day that ended in an unexpected place - the sidelines - during yesterday's 27-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome. After being beaten on a 48-yard touchdown pass to Joe Horn with 12 minutes, 52 seconds remaining that tied the score at 24, Lewis was pulled on the next defensive series for Sean Considine. Quite possibly, it was the way Lewis was dismissed on the touchdown that caused his removal.

It's more than just a different shade of green. When he lines up across from the Green Bay Packers tonight, Michael Lewis will finally be free. After weeks of live-action drills against his new Eagles teammates, the second-round pick won't have to worry or hesitate. He can just hit. "You don't have to worry about someone getting hurt," Lewis said yesterday. "You don't have to feel bad about it like you would with a teammate. " The second-round pick from Colorado is a big-hitting safety in the mold of Wes Hopkins and, yes, Brian Dawkins.

When Central Bucks West soccer coach Stefan Szygiel told Ethan Acaster before the season that he would come off the bench, the coach told him he would have to enter and do things to change the game. On Wednesday, Szygiel's "super sub" scored two goals in three minutes to break a tie and lift C.B. West to a 3-1 boys' soccer win at Hatboro-Horsham in a Suburban One Continental match. "I give the kid a ton of credit," Szygiel said. "He's a senior with rotational playing time. He's embraced it and made the most of the minutes he gets.

More than three years after Michael Jackson's death, his youngest brother, Randy, continues to raise questions about the validity of the King of Pop's will, constantly calling the five-page document signed in 2002 a fake.   The one place he hasn't made the claims is in a courtroom, which is the only place it really counts. In a recent letter, Randy and three of his siblings renewed their will claims and called on Michael's estate executors to resign. The letter states the family was too overwhelmed after Michael's death to meaningfully challenge the will that gave only family matriarch Katherine Jackson and Michael's three children — Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and Blanket, 10 — a stake in the estate.

Rodney Williams understands why NFL teams might have been hesitant to draft his brother, Michael Lewis. Lewis, taken by the Eagles in the second round last night, has an irregular heartbeat. Reports have said that as many as four NFL teams took Lewis off their draft boards because of the condition. "You look at all the heart-related deaths in the last year," said Williams, who also serves as his brother's agent. "Korey Stringer. Rashidi Wheeler. I think people are being very cautious, and they're lumping all heart conditions in together.

Michael Lewis, the second-year strong safety, was the prime mover in two highly dramatic plays that helped the Eagles to a 33-20 victory over New Orleans yesterday at Lincoln Financial Field. Lewis well-represented an Eagles defense that makes up for its mistakes at stopping the run with big plays tailored to specific moments. So it was with Lewis, who stopped Saints running back Deuce McAllister at the Eagles' 1-yard line with a crunching tackle that came two snaps ahead of a New Orleans turnover.

Michael Lewis doesn't want to talk too much about his situation these days, and who can blame him? As you walk through one of the corridors at the NovaCare Complex, a photograph of the Eagles' strong safety hangs among all the other players who have represented the team in the Pro Bowl. It was two short seasons ago that he joined nine of his teammates in Hawaii after helping the Eagles reach the Super Bowl in just his third NFL season. The Eagles loved Lewis. He loved playing in Philadelphia.

In 2004, the Eagles started Brian Dawkins and Michael Lewis at safety. Both reached the Pro Bowl. Both were also second-round picks - Dawkins in 1996, Lewis in 2002. Those picks were the highest the Eagles allocated on a safety since Jesse Campbell in 1991, and the Eagles' evaluations proved to be correct. Replacing them has been an ongoing issue. Other than Quintin Mikell, who was a four-year starter and one-time Pro Bowler, the position has been a revolving door in Philadelphia.

As co-owners of a Philadelphia sweet empire, Philly Cupcake and Philly Chocolate, Johnny Columbo is the fashionista and Michael Lewis is the foodie. Columbo can't walk through a store without turning the tea bins just so and pointing out needed candy bags, wearing shined shoes and a well-fitted knit shirt. Lewis strolls into the store in jeans, polo shirt, and sneakers and simply nods hello. "He's the dreamer, looking at the forest, and I'm on the ground focused on the trees," says Lewis, as the two of them sit in their fourth store, Philly Vintage & Consignment shop - their only nonfood business.

Eagles coach Andy Reid will not say who will start at strong safety Sunday at Tampa Bay, but it seems almost certain that incumbent Michael Lewis will not play as much as he has been. Second-year man Sean Considine is likely to see much more time, especially in passing situations. For a team that ranks 27th in passing defense, allowing 237.7 yards per game, making a change in the secondary should not be such big news. But Lewis has started 58 consecutive regular-season games for the Eagles and was a Pro Bowl selection after the 2004 season.
