Papers are stacked a foot high on coach Cardell Jones' desk. Files lie on the floor on both sides of his chair. A filing-cabinet drawer hangs open. The phone is ringing. Someone is standing in his office doorway, trying to get his attention. Another visitor from a big Eastern newspaper waits for yet another interview. There's a meeting to attend. There are game films to watch. Football practice begins at 4 p.m. A Chicago Bears scout is on his way. Somebody from the Detroit Lions is coming for the second time.

A weekly look at how the Eagles have fared under coach Andy Reid continues with Week 14, 2000: The Eagles dropped a 15-13 decision to Tennessee that had the second-guessers wagging their tongues. Leading 13-12 in the waning minutes and facing a third-and-9, Reid called for a pass play rather than a run that would have kept the clock moving. Donovan McNabb's pass to Chad Lewis fell incomplete and the Titans, who were out of timeouts, got the ball back with 1:43 remaining. "I'd do the same thing again.

NEW YORK - Nine years ago in Jacksonville, an African-American quarterback started for a Super Bowl team, marking only the third time that had happened in 39 Super Bowls. It was a big deal. Doug Williams - still the only African-American QB to win the NFL championship - talked then about how he was pulling for the Eagles' Donovan McNabb, at a Super Bowl week meeting of The Field Generals, a group Williams founded to preserve the legacy of early black quarterbacks. That week, McNabb recalled being 11 years old and watching Williams win with the Redskins, McNabb realizing then that he, too, could quarterback a Super Bowl team, he said.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - In the big picture, the Camden boys' basketball team made major progress this season. The Panthers built on last season's surprising South Jersey title and advanced a step farther in the postseason tournament, reaching Sunday's Group 3 state championship game at Rutgers University. But that was cold comfort to the players and coaches after Camden dropped a 60-54 decision to Newark East Side before several hundred gold-and-purple-clad supporters in the Rutgers Athletic Center.

ONE HUNDRED FORTY-TWO is the number of games that Donovan McNabb started with Andy Reid as his head coach. One hundred forty-two starts, tied for the sixth-longest span in NFL history. It makes you tired, just thinking about it. In some ways, it hurts just to type it. It is one of the reasons that the transition to Kevin Kolb just feels right. Kolb has the clear confidence of his bosses. He is a different kind of personality than McNabb and has a different skill-set. All of that is more important than Donovan Fatigue, true enough.

Thumbs down To ESPN for its misleading report on the Eagles' decision not to activate the $7 million option bonus in the contract extension that Brian Westbrook signed last year. John Clayton wrote, "Brian Westbrook's long-term security isn't as long as he had anticipated. " Uh, actually, it's exactly as long as he had anticipated. The option bonus was only put into Westbrook's extension so that the deal would comply with the league's cap-accounting rules. Both he and his agent, Todd France, were well aware of that and had no problem with it. As was pointed out in the Daily News on Wednesday, a source close to Westbrook acknowledged that Westbrook and France viewed the final 3 years of the deal, which were voided when the option bonus wasn't picked up, as "dummy years.
