Up-Down Drill   LeSean McCoy Well, at least one Eagle came to play. McCoy has been giving maximum effort all season as far as one can tell, but he hasn't gotten support from his offensive line. But the Eagles running back had room to run against the Saints and delivered. His teammates and coaches let him down.   Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha The Eagles cornerbacks were above average in the first six games. But for some reason, when Todd Bowles took over as defensive coordinator, they forgot how to tackle.

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.)

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.

IF THERE'S nothing for agents and NFL general managers to fight about, they'll invent something. That's all you really need to know about the issue of "offset language," which so far has kept seven of the top 10 first-round draft picks from signing, including the Eagles' Lane Johnson, selected fourth overall in April. New Eagles coach Chip Kelly is scheduled to greet rookies for training camp at NovaCare in 6 days. There's a decent chance Johnson won't be there then, though sources close to the situation say they don't think a prolonged stalemate is likely.

At the beginning of each week, Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie takes the scouting report compiled for the Eagles defense and follows a routine. He checks opposing wide receivers' speed, listed by 40-yard-dash time. He then sees how many passes have been thrown in each receiver's direction. When Rodgers-Cromartie started this exercise while preparing for the Detroit Lions, he noticed Pro Bowl receiver Calvin Johnson's time for the 40 was 4.38 seconds. Every other receiver was slower than 4.5 seconds.

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 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.
