SANTA CLARA, Calif. - In a span of 21 months, since the firing of Andy Reid and the final ascension of Howie Roseman, the Eagles have constructed as complete a football team as has been seen in Philadelphia in a decade. Oh, it has its flaws. The defense surrenders yards and points like the French. Chip Kelly's Machine Gun offense continually sputters, especially in the early stages of games, even before the offensive-line collapsed. Still, overall, the team has gotten production from everywhere.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Chip Kelly stood at the podium, and there wasn't a microphone. "Is that a metaphor?" the humbled Eagles coach said. If that were the case, the missing microphone might represent the Eagles running game or lack thereof. Or perhaps it could symbolize the three absent starting offensive linemen the Eagles have been unable to capably replace. Maybe the missing microphone was simply the Eagles offense and Kelly's ability to seemingly always find a way to counter a defense.

SOONER OR LATER, teams will back off, the Eagles figure. They will notice that the Birds are second in the NFL in points per game (33.7), despite opponents' deployment of safeties in the box and their scheming of linebackers to fly into gaps, all to blunt Chip Kelly's run-based offense. Teams will start worrying more about the fact that Nick Foles leads the league in passing yardage, with 978. At that point, LeSean McCoy will see some daylight, will find a cutback lane or two, and the Eagles' run game will again resemble what we saw last season.

THIS COULD be one really strange game. Or not. If offensive averages from the first 3 weeks of the season hold, the Eagles will outscore the 49ers 25-1 in the second half, after falling behind 20-9 in the first half. Final score, Eagles 34, 49ers 21. Leaving aside for the moment that it's really, really hard to find a way to score one point by itself, there are all sorts of reasons why it won't happen this way. Foremost is the fact that 3 weeks of something happening doesn't set it in stone; there is no reason why the Birds are destined to be a second-half team all year, though they're outscoring opponents 74-24 in the second half so far, and they're being outscored 54-27 in the first half.

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.

Eagles center Jason Kelce needs surgery for a sports hernia, coach Chip Kelly confirmed on Monday. Although Kelly did not offer a timetable for Kelce's return, the injury typically keeps a player out up to two months. Kelce left Sunday's 37-34 win over Washington in the third quarter. "I don't have a level of concern," Kelly said. "Just tell us who we've got that is available to play, and let's go play. " Backup center David Molk will likely start in Kelce's place, although Kelly did not have concrete plans on Monday.

PAT SHURMUR said that when the Eagles went into halftime down 17 points and looking lifeless, "the message was, 'Let's go put a fish in the box. Let's get a score, and then get it going.' " Several large, shiny fish had wriggled off the offensive coordinator's hook in the course of the worst half of football Nick Foles has ever played as an Eagle; last season's Pro Bowl quarterback turned the ball over three times in the first 20 minutes, one...

Lane Johnson will start at right tackle in the Eagles' preseason finale against the New York Jets on Thursday, just as he did all of last season. The difference is none of the other starting linemen will be playing with him. And shortly after the game, Johnson will fly to Dallas, where he will stay for the next month. Johnson was suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. The suspension was a major blow to the Eagles, who were relying on Johnson at right tackle.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - You seldom see the highest drafted of 90 players on an NFL training-camp roster practicing with the second string, though that has been the reality of this summer for Lane Johnson. But the second-year right tackle, who will miss the first four games of the coming season after violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, appears to be making the most of his time with the backup offensive line. Playing alongside other young linemen rather than directly next to 10-year veteran Todd Herremans has compelled Johnson to become more vocal on the field as he also continues to develop his technique.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Chip Kelly was asked yesterday about LeSean McCoy's stated goal of 2,000 rushing yards this season. "I don't care. I really don't care," the Eagles' coach said. "And he knows that, and I told him that. " Left guard Evan Mathis, on the same subject: "Isn't that adorable? I really don't care. " Right guard Todd Herremans, after a reporter reminded him of McCoy's statements and tweets about getting to 2,000, and referenced Kelly's response: "Oh, yeah.
