What we're talking about following the Eagles' 38-3 victory over St. Louis: --Improving their red-zone offense was high on the Eagles' to-do list heading into this season. Against the Rams, they converted three of four red-zone trips into touchdowns before Andy Reid rested most of his regulars in the fourth quarter. --Middle linebacker Stewart Bradley turned in an impressive performance in just his second NFL start. He had nine tackles, including two for losses, and also had one of the Eagles' four sacks of Marc Bulger.

As expected, Eagles alums Mike Zordich and Mike Caldwell yesterday took the next step toward becoming coordinators. And, by doing so, assumed responsibility for the Eagles' most demanding tasks. Zordich, 47, was promoted from defensive quality control coach to defensive backs/safeties. He joined the staff in 2009 as an intern. Both seasons, he worked with the team's safeties, overseeing the development of Quintin Mikell and rookies Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman. A team source indicated that Zordich likely will be joined by a cornerbacks coach.

To Patrick Moeller and his family, flying the colors at Eagles away games is a sworn obligation. With or without game tickets, to tailgate on the enemy's asphalt is worth ducking the occasional bottle chucked by a hostile homer. In four years, Moeller has piloted Eagle One, his 38-foot RV decorated with flashing green lights, team decals, and a rocking sound system, to virtually every game in the Birds' regular seasons. The Moorestown resident has logged 22,000 miles - and paid $5,000 for gas - this season alone, often making the trips with his wife, Monica, and their four children, ages 6, 12, 14 and 16. "It's really fun when we first get there and we turn on the lights and play the music," said Moeller, 46. The Rocky theme blares after victories.

The Eagles' defensive plans for 2010 looked a little wobbly when middle linebacker Stewart Bradley limped off yesterday favoring his left leg, the day after Marlin Jackson's injury. Let's see - middle linebacker and free safety. Wasn't there some sort of trouble there last season? Bradley left the field and went inside midway through yesterday's workout. The Eagles later said he had tweaked a calf, an injury that shouldn't be a big deal, unless Bradley aggravates it or something.

Even as the NFL inched closer to a labor shutdown that could threaten the 2011 season, the Eagles were taking care of business yesterday. The team announced that quarterback Michael Vick has signed his exclusive franchise tender, which guarantees Vick at least $16 million this season, if there is a season. The Eagles also tendered some prospective restricted free agents, linebacker Stewart Bradley (second-round level), guard Max Jean-Gilles (fourth-round level), and cornerback Dimitri Patterson (no compensation owed)

DANIEL Te'o-Nesheim might have been doomed here from the moment the Eagles selected him in the third round of the 2010 draft. The team hasn't really taken a third-rounder it ended up liking since Brian Westbrook in 2002. The litany of disappointment since then includes Billy McMullen (2003), Matt Ware (2004), Ryan Moats (2005), Tony Hunt (2007) and Bryan Smith (2008). Stewart Bradley (2007) was a decent player who quickly fell out of favor following a knee injury. Te'o-Nesheim was signed off the Eagles' practice squad yesterday by the Tampa Bay Bucs.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Lehigh University has much to recommend it: mountaintop views, a leafy campus with attractive stone architecture, and Bethlehem's quaint downtown nearby. But for Eagles players, the last three weeks have meant small college beds in concrete-walled dorms, rooming with three or four other grown men, and grueling practices in intense heat and humidity. Heading into their last night at Lehigh on Tuesday, several Eagles were asked if there was anything they would miss.

THERE'S a good chance Australian punter Sav Rocca won't be an Eagle this year, but a booming punt that supposedly led to a poorly thrown pass and a broken wrist might bring him back - to court. Most fans remember the first Philadelphia Eagles Flight Night on Aug. 2, 2009, as the night starting linebacker Stewart Bradley, a pending free agent now like Rocca, blew out his knee during a light scrimmage at Lincoln Financial Field. The night didn't end well for Debra Campana either.
