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.

He came, he saw, he left without a contract. Demetrius Bell was still a free agent when he departed Philadelphia after visiting with the Eagles over the weekend. The left tackle has met with four teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals, and Green Bay Packers, since the start of free agency last month. But he remains on the market even though the Eagles were scrambling to find a starting left tackle after Jason Peters suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon last week.

With 4 minutes, 4 seconds left in the fourth quarter, the Eagles, with Mark Sanchez, above, at quarterback for the injured Nick Foles , led by 17-14. Their starting right guard, Todd Herremans , had left the game with an ankle injury. To that point, they had run the ball just 19 times in 50 offensive plays. Here is what happened next: The Eagles ran the ball 20 times in their final 24 plays (not including two kneel-downs), with one of the four pass plays becoming a Sanchez scramble.

The Eagles officially released offensive lineman Todd Herremans on Friday, one day after news initially broke that the team was moving on from one of its longest-tenured players. Herremans, 32, played 10 seasons with the Eagles after the team drafted him in 2005. He met with coach Chip Kelly on Friday about the decision. "Todd has been the ultimate professional during my two years in Philadelphia with him," Kelly said in a statement. "He is a tough player and I wish him all of the best as he moves forward in his NFL career.

The Eagles are making another change on the offensive line, this one just four days before the team's season opener Sunday in St. Louis. Guard Kyle DeVan, whose first practice with the Eagles was Monday, practiced with the starters Wednesday, ahead of rookie Danny Watkins, who has struggled at right guard. Neither coach Andy Reid, DeVan, nor Watkins would confirm the move, or say if it is permanent, but a team source said the change has been made. Wednesday practice lineups generally reflect Sunday's starters.

WE DON'T know the exact dates, but the NFL announced its preseason games yesterday. The Eagles will open with two games at home, the first against the Indianapolis Colts somewhere between Aug. 13 and Aug. 17. Andrew Luck quarterbacks the Colts, of course, but they also feature longtime Eagles stalwarts Trent Cole and Todd Herremans, recently released by the Birds after 10 seasons here. They also have running back Frank Gore, who changed his mind about signing with the Eagles to go to Indy, a decision that might have led to the Birds' signing of DeMarco Murray.

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.

A SECURITY GUARD who was supposed to watch the cars of Philadelphia Eagles players during games has been charged with ripping off offensive lineman Todd Herremans to the tune of more than $225,000. Federal prosecutors accused Robert Von Ryan, 37, of Philadelphia, of going into the vehicle of a player identified as T.H., and copying his bank account information. He then allegedly transferred $225,034.52 from the player's account without authorization. Authorities said Von Ryan used the money to pay various bills and make purchases for himself and others.
