THERE ARE questions about quarterback Nick Foles as the Eagles open training camp this weekend for the 2014 season. Last year at this time, he was second on the depth chart to Michael Vick and remained there, despite having a solid preseason. Then Vick got hurt, and Foles parlayed the opportunity into a campaign that surprisingly ended with the Eagles' winning the NFC East and his being named the Most Valuable Player of the Pro Bowl. Foles had a ridiculously amazing touchdown-to-interception ratio, tossing 27 scores and only two interceptions, and had the jersey he wore against the Oakland Raiders sent to the Hall of Fame after he tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes and had a perfect passer rating of 158.3.

TEN YEARS AGO, the Eagles opened training camp at Lehigh with traffic jams, overburdened parking lots, and more than 6,000 fans spilling out of a few sets of bleachers, boisterously reacting to every snap. It won't be like that when the 2014 Eagles first take the field Saturday at NovaCare. For one thing, the workout will be closed to the public. For another, there was no offseason addition anything like Terrell Owens, the catalyst of those 2004 hopes. But for the first time since 2004, lots of Eagles fans sense a team on the rise, real hope for a championship.

There is no longer any question that Nick Foles is Chip Kelly's quarterback this season. As Foles enters his third training camp with the Eagles, the coach said that Foles must work on the "intricacies" that can take a quarterback "from good to great. " The "good to great" ascension can be difficult - a best-selling business book is devoted to the concept - and Foles will attempt it as he follows his record-breaking 2013 with a season that could determine his future with the Eagles.

I MIGHT HAVE been the luckiest player in pro football history. Unfortunately, there are two kinds of luck. My "Walter Mitty" career began as an undrafted free agent with the 1980 Eagles. Fresh out of Memphis State (now the University of Memphis), I was a converted power forward on the basketball team who chose football in his senior year as a last chance at realizing my childhood dream of being a professional athlete. You see, the NBA wasn't looking for any 6-6 white centers, but the NFL did have a need for 245-pound tight ends who could run a 4.6 40-yard dash.

IT IS mid-July of another summer in which the Phillies are playing themselves into early irrelevancy, and that once meant only one thing: "E-A-G-L-E-S. " As in those familiar chants heard at Citizens Bank Park as opponents put up another crooked number. As in, the heightened anticipation of the start of training camp. Polls, debates, discussions about personnel and promise, all filling in the cracks left by a Phillies team that might be so bad, it might not be wanted anywhere else.

ONE OF THE BIG reasons for the Eagles' rags-to-riches success last season was their health. Whether it was the Chip Kelly Wellness Plan or good fortune or a combination of the two, Eagles starters missed only 30 games combined because of injury, which was the fourth fewest in the NFL. Their offensive line, which was devastated by injuries in 2012, didn't have a single missed start last season. Their five starters missed a total of 98 snaps in 17 games as the Eagles led the league in rushing and finished second in total offense and fourth in scoring.

NEW YORK - The biggest mystery player in tonight's NBA draft recently ate dinner in Philadelphia with 76ers coach Brett Brown. For the player, 6-6 Australian combo guard Dante Exum, the meal provided among other things a chance to touch base with a former (and perhaps future) coach and discuss the state of basketball in the land Down Under. "It was a very good time," Exum said yesterday. More such occasions could come soon. When news broke last week of Joel Embiid's foot injury and the touted center's ensuing surgery, changing the complexion of tonight's draft, speculation that Philadelphia might use the No. 3 pick on Exum was amplified.

Part one in a series previewing the top prospects coming to Philadelphia for this week's NHL draft. ZERO. Scroll through the results of the pull-up test at last month's NHL Scouting Combine for draft picks - and that is the number that will catch your eye. It is next to the name of Sam Bennett, who just happened to be ranked as the No. 1 North American prospect by the NHL's Central Scouting service. The No. 1-ranked prospect in this week's draft at the Wells Fargo Center could not complete one single pull-up.

The head coach was asked to assess the team's spring workouts, including the just-completed mandatory minicamp. Going into the long break until the start of training camp, it seemed that everything had been accomplished as planned, and the foundation had been put down for a successful NFL season to come. "It was good to get everybody in the building and everybody working together. Overall, I feel like the team is coming along great, and the unity is where it needs to be at this point, and then when we come back to training camp with the knowledge of the system and people knowing one another, hopefully we can take off from there.
