What we're talking about after the Eagles' 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers last night: Who's the starting QB? Kevin Kolb turned in an impressive performance against the Niners, completing 21 of 31 passes for 253 yards. If Michael Vick can play next week, will he start? Another big day for Shady: Playing with a fractured rib, LeSean McCoy rushed for 92 yards and had a 29-yard touchdown run. He also had five catches for 46 yards. Better against the run: After giving up 169 rushing yards to the Redskins last week, Sean McDermott's defense did a much better job against the run last night, holding Frank Gore to 2.9 yards per carry.

The Eagles, who once won the National Football League championship while playing in a blizzard, last night won a division championship while not playing because of a blizzard. They went from Snow Bowl to No Bowl when the NFL announced that their scheduled Sunday night game against the Minnesota Vikings would be postponed until Tuesday night. With the tundra at Lincoln Financial Field too frozen for football, the eyes of Eagles fans turned to the original Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field, where the Green Bay Packers hosted the New York Giants.

Jason Peters slipped on sweatpants and a tarpaulin-size green T-shirt Tuesday, then turned to face the group of reporters who had gathered at his locker. Next to him, DeMeco Ryans had dressed and was stepping away from the scrum, making for the door, as he said to Peters, "Got to answer the question, buddy. " Peters did. He'll forever be a folk hero around here for what he did Sunday, for seeing Washington nose tackle Chris Baker flatten Nick Foles with a gratuitous blindside hit to the ribs and for reacting as he did: chugging 10 yards to Baker and sending a right hand toward his head.

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.

It was fair to wonder whether Eagles offensive tackle Tra Thomas would be at this weekend's minicamp after he joined wide receiver Terrell Owens in hiring Drew Rosenhaus as his agent earlier this month. Thomas will be there, but he will not be participating in the activities because of a blood clot in his leg that the team revealed yesterday. According to one team source, Thomas has had the problem for a while. The source said Thomas has been attending off-season workouts with his teammates at the NovaCare Complex.

Andy Reid confirmed that DeSean Jackson will play Sunday against the Colts barring a post-concussion setback. "I always leave that open when you're dealing with concussions," the Eagles coach said on Friday. "But he had a great practice, and he's been feeling well and ready to roll. " The Eagles wide receiver was listed as probable on the official injury report. While Jackson's status was not much of a surprise, Reid's saying that Jackson will return punts was. The receiver's concussion did not happen during a return, but he missed parts of the 49ers game after he injured his knee fielding a punt.

The Eagles sacked Campbell six times for 38 yards and intercepted him once.
