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.

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.

CHRIS MARAGOS won a Super Bowl with Pete Carroll last February. Now he plays for Chip Kelly. Carroll has a defensive background, Kelly's is offensive, but Maragos, a safety who plays almost exclusively on special teams, finds common threads. "Very similar. They both think outside the box," Maragos said yesterday, as the Eagles prepared for Sunday's visit from Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks. "Chip's got the more [intense], East Coast-type feel, the 'Rah,' vs. Pete Carroll's got the whole laid-back, just kinda like 'beachy' feel a little bit more.

Richard Sherman cupped his ear, antagonizing the Philadelphia crowd during the Eagles' 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and the Seahawks cornerback had every reason to gloat. There was no possible retort. The silence of the Eagles offense spoke volumes. If the Seahawks' visit on Sunday offered a chance to measure the Eagles against the defending Super Bowl champions and coach Chip Kelly's offense against the NFL's top defense, then the loss became an indisputable indication that the Eagles are not yet in Seattle's class.

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.

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.

Josh Huff left the Eagles' 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks with a hip injury. Huff said it was a bruise and did not believe it was serious. Huff finished with three kick returns for 93 yards, including a 46-yarder. He was the only player to leave the game Sunday with an injury. Tight end Trey Burton was inactive with a hamstring injury, leaving the Eagles without one of their top special-teams players. Jeff Maehl was active in Burton's place. The Eagles' other inactive players were quarterback Nick Foles, cornerback Roc Carmichael, defensive back Jaylen Watkins, offensive lineman Julian Vandervelde, offensive lineman Dennis Kelly, and defensive end Taylor Hart.

Two years ago, Brandon Graham dreaded the questions. Graham knew that when the Eagles played the Seattle Seahawks and safety Earl Thomas, he would hear questions about whether he was a draft bust. Graham, the Eagles' first-round pick in 2010, still hears from fans who wish the team selected Thomas when they traded up to the No. 13 overall pick. Considering that Thomas is a three-time all-pro and Graham has 17 career sacks, that is a reasonable opinion. But Graham has started to shed the bust label this season.

There's this photograph that Chris Maragos has to get his hands on. A shooter for the Associated Press took it in the immediate aftermath of Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in February. Maragos's face fills the right side of the frame. The Lombardi Trophy, silver and gleaming, fills the left side. Maragos - a member of the Seattle Seahawks then, a special-teams dynamo for the Eagles now - is kissing the trophy. He has seen the photo, but he doesn't have a copy of it. He would like one. It captures everything that he thinks about when he thinks about winning a championship.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

They were more businesslike than boastful in the visitors' locker room after executing one of the most lopsided 24-14 victories you'll see on an NFL field. The Seattle Seahawks had heard all about the Eagles' fast pace and explosiveness on offense, and they did not disrespect it even after they had demolished it. That said, the Seahawks' defensive players knew if they came into Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday and played at the same high level they did last season and again in recent weeks, they would leave Philadelphia with their sixth win in seven games.

ON A DAY when there should have been trumpets and applause for LeSean McCoy, there was only wailing and gnashing of teeth. On the day when he passed Wilbert Montgomery to become the Eagles' all-time rushing leader, all McCoy could think about was his disappointing performance in the Eagles' 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Fifty yards on 17 carries and a killer fumble on the first play of the second half that teed up seven points for the Seahawks. "That was a huge turnover," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said after the game.

The performance of Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez mirrored his team's during Sunday's 24-14 loss to the visiting Seattle Seahawks. Sanchez isn't expected to carry the offense, but on this day he wasn't able to provide any extra lift. Coach Chip Kelly said afterward the Eagles went into the game thinking they could run against the NFL's statistical top defense. Instead the Eagles managed just 2.6 yards per carry. While the run failed, the pass didn't do much better. Sanchez completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.
