WHEN THE Cowboys physically dominated the Eagles up front in those back-to-back blowouts that killed what had been a promising 2009 season, the Birds didn't bring in a whole bunch of bigger, stronger offensive and defensive line starters. That kind of change is hard to effect overnight. They did change their strength and conditioning coach, and the philosophy behind their offseason workout program. Mike Wolf had been in that spot for 15 years, and was named NFL strength and conditioning coach of the year in 2001 by his peers.

The Eagles claimed tackle D.J. Jones off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens, the team said Tuesday. The Eagles also named Keith Gray assistant strength and conditioning coach to replace Roger Marandino, who became the head strength and conditioning coach with the Indianapolis Colts. Jones, listed as 6-foot-5, 315 pounds, was an undrafted free agent who spent the first six weeks of last season on the Dolphins practice squad. He spent most of the rest of the season on Baltimore's practice squad and moved to the active roster in the final week of the season.

He also spent three seasons as the defensive-line coach at Missouri, and nine seasons as the school's strength and conditioning coach.

Former Eagles coach Rich Kotite is taking six of his Philadelphia assistants with him to New York, where Kotite was named last week to coach the Jets. The two most prominent assistants are Jim Vechiarella and Zeke Bratkowski. Vechiarella, the Eagles' linebackers coach, will be the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. Bratkowski, the Eagles' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, will fill those positions with the Jets. Kotite and his staff were fired by Eagles owner Jeff Lurie on Dec. 26. "I'm very excited about the opportunity," Vechiarella said during a telephone interview last night from his New Jersey home.

For two seasons, World B. Free never had a title that fit the work he did with the 76ers. Now he does. The Sixers named Free, who spent 13 seasons as an NBA guard, as their community relations player representative. "I almost feel like I just signed another contract as a player," said Free, 42. "I feel really good, because basketball is my life. " He'll do the same things he has done since rejoining the organization in 1994-95: clinics, camps, speaking engagements, personal appearances.

St. Joseph's Prep has gone to Jersey to find its new football coach. And he's not from the South, the part of the state that has produced some of Prep's prominent players. Now in charge is Gabe Infante, head coach for the last two seasons at Paramus Catholic and, beforehand, an assistant at three other North Jersey schools. He replaces Gil Brooks, who was fired 2 months ago after winning five Catholic League titles and going 162-57-2 in 18 seasons. Brooks, last week, became the defensive coordinator at Camden Catholic.

Year Two of the Jerry Berndt era officially began yesterday as the Temple football coach paraded out the team he hopes will make Owls fans forget about the disaster that was Year One. The Owls held their annual media day yesterday at Veterans Stadium as a prelude to their preseason camp, which begins this morning at Temple's Ambler campus. The Owls will spend six days at Ambler, then move to their main campus to begin preparations for their season opener Sept. 1, at Wyoming. The Owls went 10 games last season before picking up their first victory under Berndt, a 36-33 decision over Rutgers in the 1989 finale at the Vet. In their 10 losses, the Owls were outscored by 323-95, including an embarrassing 65-7 loss at Houston.

STATE COLLEGE - It's 5:15 a.m. on a Friday in State College, and Penn State head football coach Bill O'Brien struts onto his team's practice field outside the Lasch Football Building holding a cup of coffee. "This is a first," O'Brien says, speaking to the two dozen or so reporters and cameramen standing behind the near endzone, "5:30 in the morning. " Forget what the clock says, the presence of the media at a Penn State practice is a first in its own right. For decades under the Nittany Lions' old coaching regime, former coach Joe Paterno concealed practices as if they were top-secret government meetings.

THE BEST YOUNG running back in the history of the franchise, a more productive runner/receiver at this point in his career than any of them (and by a lot), LeSean McCoy is modeled after Brian Westbrook and pointed in the same direction. That is the big picture. Cowboys Stadium, Sunday night, 4:22 left to play, Eagles leading by 30-27, ball on their 10-yard line, short pass to McCoy for 6 yards, McCoy over the left side for 12 yards, and then for 19 yards, and then over the right side for 13 yards and then, later, on the final meaningful play, over the left side again for a backbreaking 6 yards on third-and-1.

PRACTICE CAN BE a monotonous routine in the NBA, even more so if you rarely see game action. Craig Brackins, however, embraces every practice as if it's his first, most times staying late for extra shooting practice or some games of two-on-two. Still, he had seen action in just one game this season, deactivated for most. Yesterday, Brackins returned to the 76ers after a five-game stint with the Springfield Armor of the NBA Development League. His average numbers were impressive in those five games - 17.2 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 blocks.

THERE'S AN OLD SAYING: If you're not cheating, you're not trying. Sal Alosi, strength and conditioning coach for the New York Jets, was trying very hard. Alosi, standing on the sideline during a loss to Miami yesterday, tripped Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll while the rookie was covering a punt in the third quarter. "I accept responsibility for my actions as well as any punishment that follows," Alosi said in a statement released by the team. "I made a mistake that showed total lapse in judgment.

WELL NOW, what have we here? The local professional basketball team is starting to raise some eyebrows (saying they're drawing interest might be a little far-fetched as the mostly empty Wells Fargo Center would attest each home game). Consider: Defense has become something more to the players than what you have to do when you don't have the ball. Jodie Meeks' insertion into the starting lineup has been like adding water to a dying plant - you can practically see the offense coming to life right before your eyes.

November was a good month for David Akers, and December has started well. The Eagles will need him to continue his strong run as the team heads into four crucial season-closing games, starting Sunday in Dallas. Three of the four will be in the Northeast, where cold and wind can make kicking more tricky. Over the last month, Akers' foot has been important and reliable. He hit four field goals in a two-point win over the Colts and kicked another four in a 10-point victory against the Giants, helping him earn NFC special-teams player-of-the-month honors.

As a freshman at Radnor High, Dave Bowen nearly exchanged helmet and pads for a nine-iron and sand wedge. A raw-as-anything offensive lineman, he had trouble dealing with then-freshman head coach Mick Bonner's hard-driving and intense approach. "Yeah, I didn't enjoy it too much," the 17-year-said. "I was thinking seriously of quitting. " Ironically, it was a heart-to-heart chat with Bonner, formerly an undersized center at Ridley, that put Bowen, once a regular at Merion Golf Club, back on track to fulfilling his goal of playing Division I football.
