Jamar Chaney said that Matt Forte is "probably the best running back in the league right now. " Putting aside the thought of LeSean McCoy also laying claim to that title - and the Eagles linebacker did later toss his teammate's name into the argument - there is ample evidence that Forte is tops in the NFL. No other running back is as responsible for as much of his team's offense. Forte's 1,091 yards from scrimmage account for 46.2 percent of the Chicago Bears' total yards.

LANDOVER, Md. - Eagles safety Kurt Coleman made a good first impression in his second chance this season in the starting lineup. Coleman intercepted three passes as the Eagles broke a four-game losing streak on Sunday with a 20-13 victory over the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. Coleman became the 10th player in team history with three interceptions in a game and the first since Joe Scarpati on Oct. 23, 1966, in a game at the New York Giants. Coleman started the first three games this season, but was benched during the third, a 29-16 loss to the Giants, due to shoddy tackling.

Turnovers are hurting the Eagles - and not just on offense. It has been obvious that the Eagles' 15 giveaways are disrupting an offense that otherwise has moved the ball well. On defense, the opposite has been true: The Eagles are giving up yardage and have been unable to bail themselves out with timely interceptions or fumble recoveries. The Eagles have five takeaways this year. Only Pittsburgh and Miami, with two each, have fewer. Five others are tied with the Eagles near the bottom of the NFL. It's a sharp change from last season, when the Eagles' 34 takeaways were tied for fifth best in the league.

"Leadership is a three-run homer in the ninth inning. "   - Casey Stengel   THE 1998 EAGLES featured these players: Brian Dawkins and Hugh Douglas, Irving Fryar and Ike Reese, Duce Staley and Jeremiah Trotter, Kevin Turner and Troy Vincent, Mike Caldwell and Michael Zordich. They did not lack for personality, or backbone. They were not short on players who would get in a teammate's face if he felt the situation called for it. Leadership, character, we all are familiar with the shorthand - and these guys had it. And there were a lot of them.

This week, it's about finishing. It's about the Eagles defense finding a way to play well for four quarters, not two or three. It's about finishing drives for an offense that has moved the ball well - ranking fourth in the NFL in total yardage - only to come undone near the end zone with dubious play calling, turnovers, and penalties. The Eagles, at 1-3, could be living a 4-0 dream if they had been able to finish these past three weeks. But they haven't, and 49ers running back Frank Gore called out the Birds on Friday.

NOW, IN THE WAKE of three blown second-half leads, the Eagles miss safety Quintin Mikell's stinging tongue as much as they miss his punishing hits. Veteran defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins can fill the leadership void. In 2009, Mikell replaced safety Brian Dawkins as the defense's leader. Dawkins led the defense for a decade. He inherited the job from cornerback Troy Vincent, who got it from Mike Zordich, who followed Seth Joyner . . . The point is, the defense always had someone to hold players accountable.

Here is a look at some of the best and worst in Sunday's Eagles-49ers game that deserve special mention and our new award: the Inky. Inky for worst performance by a defensive player. Watching Nnamdi Asomugha play Sunday was like watching Robert DeNiro in Little Fockers . Oh, how the mighty have fallen. The Eagles cornerback missed tackles, bit on fakes, and was completely lost at times in the Eagles zone. Inky for worst coach. Andy Reid.
