For 15 minutes a day, Tim Frazier, Penn State's senior point guard, finds a quiet place, switches on a podcast, and meditates. Along with his teammates, Frazier, the team's all-time leader in assists, has found that practicing mindfulness meditation - focusing on the breath with his eyes closed and becoming aware of his thoughts without judging them - has amped up his performance on the court. "The game moves so fast, it's hard to focus on the here and now," said Frazier, who is pretty fleet of foot himself.

Longtime Eagles cornerback Bobby Taylor yesterday was released by the Seattle Seahawks. Taylor was drafted in the second round by the Eagles in 1995 and played for them nine seasons. He left as a free agent after the 2003 season, signing a 4-year, $11.3 million deal with Seattle. Waiting until at least June 1 to release Taylor allows the remaining $2.25 million from his signing bonus to count against the salary cap next year instead of this year.

FIVE SUMMERS AGO or so, there was this tall guy from Compton, Calif., who played wide receiver at Stanford, and he took to showing up at USC's player-organized informal throwing sessions. "He knew some of the guys on our team," then-USC quarterback Matt Barkley recalled yesterday. "He was watching a lot; I think he got in there for a couple reps . . . He was quiet; he was at someone else's school, he didn't know a whole lot of guys. Wasn't rude or anything. Nice guy. " The nice guy from Stanford eventually converted to cornerback.

Former Eagles Pro Bowl fullback Leonard Weaver will sign a one-day contract and officially announce his retirement with the team on Tuesday at 1 p.m. Weaver earned a Pro Bowl invitation and Associated Press all-pro honors in 2009, his first season with the Eagles, after leading all NFL fullbacks in rushing attempts (70) and yards (323) to go along with four touchdowns (two rushing, two receiving). He suffered a career-ending knee injury in 2010. Originally signed as a rookie free agent by the Seattle Seahawks in 2005, Weaver played in 63 games (19 starts)

Were the Seattle Seahawks suffering a Super Bowl hangover? Their season appeared to be slipping away before things slowly began to change. The Seahawks started the season 3-3, but they enter the game against the Eagles on Sunday with an 8-4 mark and renewed confidence. So what changed? "I think just having to step up, making sure that everybody was on the same page and just continued to work hard," third-year quarterback Russell Wilson said Wednesday in a conference call with Philadelphia media.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - A slip of the tongue gave away Atlanta coach Mike Smith's focus. Smith was just starting his review Monday of the Falcons' 30-28 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC divisional playoffs when it became clear his thoughts were on this week's NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. "We knew the San Francisco Forty ... excuse me, the Seattle Seahawks, were a very good football team and they showed a lot of resiliency," Smith said before smiling after catching his verbal miscue.

Let's begin with an assumption that becomes more and more reasonable as each day passes and more sources reveal more information and insight: The Eagles are preparing to give DeSean Jackson the full Pontius Pilate treatment. That the Eagles will either trade or release Jackson appears a fait accompli, and whenever an NFL team is considering washing its hands of a wide receiver as prolific and talented as Jackson - and in the prime of his career, no less - questions follow. Jackson is 27, and he's coming off what was statistically his best season: 82 catches, 1,332 yards, nine touchdowns.

RENTON, Wash. - Terrell Owens NFL return lasted less than 3 weeks. Owens tweeted on Sunday that he is no longer a member of the Seattle Seahawks, part of the league-mandated roster reductions from 90 to 75 players. The 38-year-old posted a message on his Twitter account shortly before 11 a.m. PDT that he had been released. "I'm no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver. " Owens signed a 1-year deal with Seattle on Aug. 7, following a sterling workout that had coaches and Seahawks staff raving about how good he looked for having not played an NFL game in more than 18 months.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Dan Quinn left his job as Seattle Seahawks defensive line coach in 2010 and returned this season as a defensive coordinator. What struck him about the defense during his two years away from the team was the development of safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. "When they were two rookies together, I certainly had the view to say, 'These two guys are going to be special,' " Quinn said. "But those two guys in specific really embodied the development of what you can do as a player, and how they've taken their game from where they began.

On Monday morning, the Eagles will clear out their lockers and begin the offseason sooner than any anticipated. A team that started December among the league's top contenders won't even have the chance to play in January. On Thanksgiving night, with Philadelphia experiencing the euphoric blend of tryptophan and an Eagles victory, Chip Kelly appreciated that the Eagles would play "meaningful December football. " He did not talk about the postseason or whether that Nov. 26 blowout of the Dallas Cowboys gave the Eagles an edge in the division.

IN THE NFL, teams are asked to refocus after losing all the time. The Eagles, though, just put the torch to their entire 2014 in one terrible Sunday evening, on national television. Yeah, they have a game this week at 3-11 Washington. Yeah, they can win Saturday and hope the Colts beat the host Cowboys the next day, bringing the Birds back from the dead. Or that a sinkhole swallows the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers or the Seattle Seahawks over the next few days, causing one of them to have to forfeit their remaining games.

There was this play last Sunday, during the Eagles' loss to the Seattle Seahawks, that you probably remember and that Bradley Fletcher said he's already forgotten. Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin ran a fly pattern and pretty much ran over Fletcher, one of the Eagles' two starting cornerbacks, along the way. But Fletcher never turned his head around to pick up the flight of the football, and when he and Baldwin came together in a tangle and tumbled to the ground, Fletcher was penalized for pass interference.

SUNDAY'S DISMAL offensive showing against the Seattle Seahawks doesn't seem to have shaken Mark Sanchez's faith in himself, or his teammates' faith in the quarterback who took over for injured Nick Foles 5 weeks ago. The Eagles had three possessions in the fourth quarter of the 24-14 loss, as their defense fought to keep them within striking distance. They generated 8 net yards; one of the possessions, set up by a potential game-turning fumble recovery, ended after one snap because Sanchez badly underthrew Riley Cooper and was intercepted.

After the first two games of the season, one NFL coach said, his initial thought when seeing Darren Sproles enter a game was, "Oh, [shoot]!" The new Eagles running back created matchup nightmares for defenses and appeared an ideal fit for coach Chip Kelly's scheme. But Sproles' production has waned since then. He did not record a single rushing or receiving yard Sunday in the 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and had only four offensive touches. The Eagles want Sproles more involved in the offense, but defenses increase their attention on Sproles when he enters the game.

Chip Kelly continued to support Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper, who had three catches for 13 yards Sunday in a 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Kelly has routinely stood up for Cooper throughout the season when asked about the player's production. Cooper has made 46 catches for 470 yards this season. Kelly pointed out that Cooper had 47 catches all of last season. But Cooper also averaged 17.8 yards per catch with eight touchdowns last season. This year, Cooper has averaged 10.2 yards per catch and one touchdown.

Minutes after the Eagles' 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Chip Kelly shifted his attention from the defending Super Bowl champion to a new measuring stick: How his team stacks up in the NFC East. Kelly said the NFC East is "what this season is about right now," and the winner of Sunday's rematch with the Dallas Cowboys will have the late-season edge. The question is no longer whether the Eagles can compete with conference heavyweights such as Green Bay and Seattle, but whether the Eagles can even stay atop the division.

The standard questions about the health of Eagles quarterback Nick Foles arose again Monday and the standard non-answers from coach Chip Kelly followed. Andy Reid used to love opening his news conferences with injury updates whereas Kelly loves to pretend he's never looked at or asked about an injury report. "No, I have no updates on Nick," Kelly said the day after backup quarterback Mark Sanchez and the Eagles offense fell limp in a 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Whenever an offense fails as fantastically as the Eagles did Sunday, it's natural that the quarterback's role is discussed.

NO POINT being delusional, because the evidence speaks for itself. The Eagles likely would lose another encounter with the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks. Although they came in different fashion, the beat-downs delivered to the Birds by the Packers and Seahawks were convincing indicators of how much more talent and overall ability they have. But when it is December and you're still in the playoff hunt, even if you are not among the elite few favored to win the Super Bowl, the point is that you still want to find out how you would fare.

THE EAGLES were unanimous about two things yesterday at Lincoln Financial Field: that the Seattle Seahawks did, indeed, beat them by the score of 24-14, and that there are no measuring sticks in the NFL. Because if there were measuring sticks, hoo boy. If there were measuring sticks, it would be only fair to point out that when you look at how they have fared against the best teams on their schedule, the Eagles won at Indianapolis, lost close...
