Chip Kelly inherited an uncomfortable quarterback situation the day he reconsidered owner Jeffrey Lurie's offer to become the 21st head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. One-hundred-and-forty weeks later, the coach could be on the precipice of that same precarious position. Only the names have changed. Sure, Kelly is expressing confidence in Sam Bradford as his 0-2 team prepares for a must-win road game Sunday against a New York Jets defense that has allowed the fewest points (17)

Sunday night's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Arizona Cardinals features a franchise that currently holds the National Football League's record for longest championship drought. And it's not the Eagles. The Cardinals have won only one NFL title since 1925. That championship came in 1947 against the Eagles, who won their last NFL title in 1960. In Pennsylvania's anthracite coal region, the Cardinals' 68 years of futility is attributed to a curse placed on them for stealing the 1925 championship from the Pottsville Maroons.

Chip Kelly was the fashionable selection to become the 21st head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Owner Jeffrey Lurie was not wrong when he said that the hot-shot college guy from the University of Oregon was the preferred choice for a lot of NFL teams searching for a head coach after the 2012 season. Thanks to their unwillingness to take no for an answer, Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman convinced Kelly to come to Philadelphia after he initially declined, and it was quite the coup, even if it did evolve into an "oh-no" situation that led to Tuesday's bombshell announcement and Wednesday's surprising news conference inside the NovaCare Complex.

OFFICIALLY, Jordan Matthews is a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. He goes to work each day at the NovaCare Complex. Dresses in a locker with Malcolm Jenkins on one side and Jon Dorenbos on another. Just across the way are Byron Maxwell and Bennie Logan. But Matthews also belongs to another club that is growing more and more prestigious each week. The wide receivers drafted in the class of 2014 continue to thrive at an impressive pace. "They've come in and had more production than any class I can remember," said Jenkins, who is in his seventh season.

John Spagnola, the Philadelphia Eagles' star tight end and players' union rep in the 1980s, has built a post-NFL career as paid advisor to public-employer and union pension plans in Pennsylvania, which has more publicly funded retirement plans than anywhere. He is a managing director at Philadelphia-based PFM, a municipal finance consultant, with 530 employees nationwide, which ranks among the largest pension advisors firms. Clients include 82 Pennsylvania towns and agencies (West Chester and Upper Moreland, among others)

This week, on the ground floor of Philadelphia's original Ritz-Carlton, where patricians once frequented that hotel's lavish Empire Dining Room and Ritz Bar, customers lined up at Wawa's deli counter. The transformation of the posh Broad and Walnut hotel, from high-society hangout to Hoagiefest's home, suggests just how much Center City and its dining options have changed. Wawa's occupancy of what was a grand hotel lobby also has helped to further obscure the significant sports history that took place in that building, 20 or so floors above the provolone and pickles.

If you ever heard Jack Edelstein speak in public, chances are you didn't know what the heck he was talking about. But that's OK. Chances are he didn't either. "He was the king of double-talk," said Michael Nathanson, a nephew. "He'd start talking and you'd think he was making sense. But, after a while you would realize that he really wasn't saying anything. That was his shtick. " Edelstein, a longtime Eagles football statistician and master of gobbledygook who hobnobbed with the rich and famous and kept 'em laughing at hundreds of celebrity roasts and charity events in the Delaware Valley and elsewhere, died of liver cancer on Friday at his home.

MOBILE, Ala. - Brent Celek might get to retire an Eagle. But judging from his consistency and durability during his first nine seasons, the tight end may outlast the three-year contract he agreed to on Tuesday. Celek had two years added to his existing deal and will be signed through the 2018 season. The total worth of the contract is $13 million, with $6 million guaranteed. Celek was slated to earn $5 million in the final year of his previous contract. While the exact details are not known, the new contract is expected to lower Celek's salary-cap number for 2016.

B RITTANY DANIEL , one of the blond-bombshell identical twins from the TV drama "Sweet Valley High," shared her story of surviving Stage 4 cancer at the American Association for Cancer Research's annual meeting last night in Center City. She had kept it under wraps for awhile, but Daniel was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2011. Last year, she decided it was time to break her silence. "I felt like this was important to fully heal," Daniel told me. Hosted by the media-driven nonprofit Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C)

Oh, the drama, the intrigue, the excitement. Will Sam stay? Will Sam go? Is Sam afraid to compete for his job? Is it really possible Howie is going to be perceived as the tough guy who stared down a quarterback and agent? Carson or Jared? Enjoy it, folks. This is as good as 2016 is going to get for your Philadelphia Eagles. I do not know exactly how this soap opera is going to play out beyond the likelihood that the Eagles are going to use the No. 2 overall selection Thursday to take Carson Wentz after the Los Angeles Rams make Jared Goff the first overall pick.

Doug Pederson squashed any notion that there would be a quarterback controversy in Philadelphia - or even an open competition - by declaring Sam Bradford the Eagles' starting quarterback and Chase Daniel as the No. 2 quarterback. Multiple reports surfaced after the Eagles signed Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract that he would have a chance to compete for the starting job. Pederson wanted to make clear that Bradford is his quarterback, in case that wasn't known when the Eagles signed Bradford to a two-year, $36 million contract with $22 million guaranteed on March 1. "Talking about the quarterback situation going forward, Sam Bradford is the No. 1, Chase Daniel is the No. 2, and we're working on the No. 3," Pederson said Thursday.

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.

One year after the Eagles acquired DeMarco Murray, Byron Maxwell, and Kiko Alonso as part of a high-profile offseason overhaul, the team agreed to trade them all on the same day. Murray will be dealt to the Tennessee Titans, his agency confirmed. Maxwell and Alonso will be sent to the Miami Dolphins for draft picks, according to league sources. The specific return on either trade was not known. The deals were reached on Monday, but they will not be made official until the new league year begins on Wednesday.

DeMarco Murray has not voiced any frustration to Sam Bradford - and he has not voiced anything to coach Doug Pederson, because the two have not yet spoken. An NFL Network report last week said Murray is unhappy and still has an affinity for Dallas. Murray is entering the second year of a five-year, $40 million contract. He counts $8 million against the salary cap in 2016, but the team would absorb a $13 million salary cap hit if it releases him. "I don't know," Pederson said when asked if Murray is happy.

IN THE WAKE of Chip Kelly's dictatorship, Eagles chief Howie Roseman is painting a picture of collaborative cohesion. Roseman hired Kelly in 2013, but after the 2014 season Kelly demanded control over player personnel and forced Roseman from the role. Kelly was fired in December and Roseman reascended. He has since overseen the hiring of coach Doug Pederson and his staff and reconstructed the front office. Roseman might be in charge, but he wants everyone to know that he is not ignoring input.

MOBILE, Ala. - Before he was so rudely interrupted a year ago, Howie Roseman was trying to build an atmosphere in which players drafted by the Eagles would stay with the Eagles, would feel valued by the organization, and would build valuable continuity for the team. Roseman, back in charge of Eagles personnel after a yearlong hiatus at the insistence of former coach Chip Kelly, is moving to re-establish that initiative this week with new deals for the team's top two tight ends, Zach Ertz (five years, $42.5 million, on Monday)
