BETHLEHEM, Pa. - When President Obama told Nnamdi Asomugha to "tell [Michael] Vick to slide" at an event Monday, the message got back to the Eagles quarterback. At first, Vick was "stunned" - in a good way - that Obama thought of him. After further consideration, Vick thought: "Man, he's got a point. " Finally, Vick came to a resolution: He'll listen to the president. "The first run of the year, I'm sliding, and you'll know it's for him," Vick told reporters after Thursday's practice.

This is a post by Les Bowen on the Daily News' Eagletarian blog. CONSIDERING THE central role Andy Reid played in the Eagles' slide to a rebuilding team coming off a 4-12 season, it's only fair that Andy should offer them a helping hand, all the way from Kansas City. Reid's Chiefs on Wednesday released right tackle Eric Winston, a big free-agent signing a year ago from Houston who didn't get off to a great start in his new home. (Geez, that story line seems familiar, can't imagine where I might have heard it before.)

HOLLIS THOMAS says the Phillies and Eagles had something in common besides a concrete-hard field when they shared the Vet: porn. The former Eagles defensive tackle, who is now with 94WIP, told the station's "Morning Show" that the teams shared a big, blue chest full of pornography. "[The Phillies] did have an awesome . . . we used to share like the shower and restroom area at the Vet, and they had an awesome collection of porn," Thomas said. "They did, it was just like a bunch of books in there.

EAGLES BEAT WRITER Les Bowen made the following observation about the team's linebackers following a preseason game in Pittsburgh: "A confused, porous half of work against a really poised, honed Steelers offense does not necessarily portend disaster," he wrote. "But it's always troubling when something you suspected might be a weakness really seems to be shaking out that way, in spades. " For most of the fall, the defense often seemed out of sorts, out of position and out of talent.

BETHLEHEM — Brent Celek left practice early Thursday with what the Eagles described as a "mild" right knee sprain. Celek later walked briskly to the parking lot, waving off reporters' concerns with "I'll be good. I promise. " He was wearing a wrapping on his right leg. Just a day earlier, the Eagles seemed to be done with their tight-end flirtation. Visanthe Shiancoe had signed with the Patriots, and the Eagles hadn't opted to bring in four-time Pro Bowler Jeremy Shockey for a physical, after reports said they might.

The Eagles play the Washington Redskins on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles are 5-5; the Redskins, 3-6. You'd think that would be a good thing, having a home game against a lesser opponent. Yeah, you'd think that. There's just one problem: The Eagles have lost their last 10 games at the Linc. That's a lot. That's four short of the NFL record. For a sense of proportion, of just how long a 10-game home losing streak in the NFL is in comparison to other sports, imagine the Phillies losing 101 straight games at Citizens Bank Park.

ATLANTIC CITY - If you want to know why the Eagles didn't sign high-priced, possible future Hall of Fame players such as Darrelle Revis, DeMarcus Ware, and Jairus Byrd, the answer was on the field last season. Chip Kelly has a system, and within the confines of the NFL salary cap, he and general manager Howie Roseman have spent the last two offseasons spearheading an effort to fill structured needs. Do Kelly and Roseman consider Revis, Ware, and Byrd great players? You bet they do. Do they think the three players would reach their full potential within the confines of the Eagles' defensive scheme?

The Atlanta Falcons are negotiating a trade that would send outspoken cornerback DeAngelo Hall to the Oakland Raiders for a second-round pick in the NFL draft. A source familiar with the talks, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been finalized, confirmed to the Associated Press the Falcons were discussing a trade for the 36th overall selection. The Falcons have the No. 3 pick in the opening round. Hall is a two-time Pro Bowl selection, but he is nearly as well known for his outspoken demeanor.

The bombshell out of Napa, Calif., on Monday was not that Oakland had used a third-round pick in the NFL's supplemental draft to select former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor. The real news was the immediate speculation that the Raiders would try the 6-foot-5, 232-pounder at receiver. Pryor ran a 4.36 in the 40 at his workout on Saturday, which would make him the league's fastest QB, with the possible exception of Michael Vick. But a Raiders source told ESPN.com's John Clayton the team is looking at Pryor more as receiver than a quarterback at the NFL level.

NNAMDI ASOMUGHA was supposed to return to practice Thursday, and he did, briefly, before deciding his whiplashed neck wasn't comfortable. This left third-year cornerback Brandon Hughes manning Asomugha's spot, as he has done in practice since Asomugha went down in a scary collision with safety Nate Allen Monday at Lehigh. For Hughes, 26, battling for a roster spot, these reps have been precious. Even more precious would be a chance to start against the Patriots Monday night in the preseason game the Eagles are pointing toward as their key preparation for the regular season.
