TODD HERREMANS has a video Howard Mudd gave him earlier in the offseason, featuring Herremans' play and images of Colts offensive linemen Mudd coached. Fellow Eagles lineman Austin Howard has one like it. The idea is to give the now-locked-out players an idea of what the new o-line coach wants, since he isn't able to instruct them in person right now. "He sent me a film, clips of myself in the past that he likes, and he'd like to see more of, clips of his guys from over in Indy, so I've been watching that.

Lehigh dean of athletics Joe Sterrett said yesterday that school officials and the Eagles have decided to make the call around mid-June on the viability of holding 2011 training camp in Bethlehem, where it has taken place every year since 1996. Previously, Sterrett had said Lehigh would like to know what's up by early June, so the school could schedule a sports festival or something to fill the gap if the Eagles weren't going to use their late-July through mid-August dates because of the NFL lockout.

On the afternoon before the Eagles selected Temple safety Jaiquawn Jarrett with the 54th pick in the draft, Quintin Mikell took advantage of the temporary lifting of the lockout to swing by the NovaCare Complex. There were things in his locker he wanted. Pictures. Footballs. Cleats. Memorabilia. Workout gear. As he was waiting for a security guard to collect his belongings, Mikell bumped into Howie Roseman, then Andy Reid. They exchanged pleasantries, nothing more. Mikell heard them loud and clear.

If you told Andy Reid he tabbed both his draft selections last night higher than they'd figured to go, Reid probably wouldn't disagree. But the Eagles' coach contended that the nature of this draft, after the first round, led to teams targeting players and grabbing them, even if they might be taking them above their strict grades. The Eagles went for Temple safety Jaiquawn Jarrett with the 54th selection in the second round. Then the Birds completed their night with unheralded Utah State corner Curtis Marsh in the third round.

NOTE TO the next Eagles' defensive coordinator: If you trip and fall around your players next summer, get up quickly. Otherwise you're likely to be on the bottom of a big pile. Maybe it's just Rex-envy, but don't the playoff-eliminated mouths seem noisier than usual this January? Quintin Mikell, Trent Cole, Ellis Hobbs, Jeremiah Trotter all got their licks in on Sean McDermott over the last few days. Wait, Jeremiah Trotter? A qualifier: I'm not sure Mikell was piling on McDermott, or piling on those who made his job more difficult than it needed to be. Same with Hobbs.

Kurt Coleman knows the drill for the first off-season of his NFL career. "I have to get bigger, faster, stronger, and learn to understand the game a little more," Coleman said. The Eagles' rookie safety might have been speaking for all of the team's young players. They gained some experience this season, but their development could be the key to the team's future. "We were able to play young players who were able to get experience," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "Some of those young guys are going to be leaders on this team.

Quintin Mikell's voice caught in his throat, his eyes filled. A tear spilled out. Mikell, an eight-year veteran who rose from undrafted free agent to special-teams contributor to starting safety, defensive leader and mentor in the secondary, may have just played his last game with the team that gave him his first shot, the only one he has ever played for. He fought to contain his emotions when talking to reporters Monday. "It's tough because it's all I've known since I've been in the league.

LIKE HIS MENTOR, Brian Dawkins, Quintin Mikell loves this city. He loves the Eagles. Like his mentor, Mikell's emotions got the better of him when he considered he might have played his final game for both. A tear formed in Mikell's left eye, then in his right, when asked about his immediate future as a free agent in a league facing a lockout. "That's not something I really want to think about right now," he said. "It is what it is. Hopefully, it gets worked out. And we'll go from there.

Right tackle Winston Justice found himself on the bench for the most critical stretch of the Eagles' wild-card playoff game Sunday, benched after drawing three penalties on two plays late in the third quarter. The flags pushed the Eagles back 15 yards after they started with good field position, first down on their own 46-yard line. "We had a couple penalties, and so I thought a little change might help," coach Andy Reid said after the game. Justice sat alone on the bench as King Dunlap went in at right tackle.

Same story, different verse for the Eagles' defense yesterday. The same problems that have been plaguing Sean McDermott's young unit most of the season, plagued the Eagles again in their season-ending, 21-16, wild-card loss to the Packers at the Linc. More red-zone futility. More third-down woes. More trouble getting a consistent pass rush on the quarterback. "All year, it's been the same story," said safety Quintin Mikell. "When we play confident and when we attack and we're not thinking, we can play with anybody.
