* Re: What Eagles' early cuts mean (Eagletarian blog, Aug. 30): [Linebacker Everette] Brown should have made this team. Trent Cole stinks; why they are keeping this guy around is nuts. Why they are switching to a 3-4 defense knowing half the guys on this team never played it is crazy, as well. Cole is taking a roster spot from a guy who I think had more sacks in this preseason then Cole had all of last year. We need youth, not age, here. Brown was a beast [Thursday] night even though was against ham and eggers . . . - william20, Philly.com

From the time Howie Roseman was awarded a desk in the Eagles office through his ascension in the football operations staff, and even in his first three years as general manager, the pass rushers Roseman sought all would play in a similar defensive scheme. Not until Roseman helped court Chip Kelly in January 2013 did his scouting require him to pinpoint edge rushers whose positions are listed as "OLB" and not "DE. " The NFL's vernacular is changing when it comes to pass rushers, because one size does not fit all. Fifteen NFL teams run a 3-4 base defense and 17 teams run a 4-3. The Eagles moved from the 4-3 to the 3-4 last season.

IN JUST 6 WEEKS, the Eagles will open the 2013 season in Washington against the Redskins. At the moment, they don't know who their starting quarterback will be in that game, and they also don't know exactly what kind of defensive alignment they will be using. Neither of those things is a cause for concern at the moment. Chip Kelly is letting Michael Vick and Nick Foles duke it out for the starting-QB job and one of them eventually will be declared the winner. As for the defense, well, Kelly's coordinator, Bill Davis, knows the scheme he wants to play.

Jason Babin officially is no longer an Eagle. Tennessee acquired the defensive end after the Eagles declined to match the Titans' offer. Under a right-of-first refusal clause the Eagles put into Babin's contract, they had 1 week to match the offer sheet signed Wednesday. Without the clause, Babin would be an unrestricted free agent because of his 6 years of NFL service. The Titans announced that the Eagles notified the NFL yesterday they would not match the offer. Babin, a first-round draft pick in 2004 out of Western Michigan, has played for Houston, Seattle, Kansas City and, last season, the Eagles.

THE DEPLETED DEFENSIVE LINE: Defensive tackle Antonio Dixon suffered a triceps injury that could keep him out for a while. Trent Cole was on crutches after the game with a calf strain. Ends Juqua Parker and Darryl Tapp still are out. Not a good situation. THOSE FOURTH-QUARTER BLUES: For the third straight week, the Eagles blew a fourth-quarter lead. They have been outscored 36-0 in the fourth quarter the last three games. DEFENDING THE BACKS AND TIGHT ENDS: A seasonlong problem continued as the Niners' running backs and tight ends accounted for 154 of 291 receiving yards.

SOME INTREPID folks were trying to work the gee-despite-the-win-you-were-eliminated-from-playoff-contention angle in the locker room Monday. Of the handful of Eagles available after a brief practice, nobody seemed shocked they weren't going to the postseason. "It felt great to win, especially under the circumstances, with a lot of young guys in, a lot of key players out in key positions," tight end Clay Harbor said. Despite how the question was phrased, Harbor didn't even mention the playoffs.

If the Eagles are going to be successful this season, and not merely interesting in a lab experiment kind of way, the most valuable player on the football team may be Connor Barwin. Assuming the offense can score points as expected in Chip Kelly's frenetic manner, then it will be up to the defense to actually come through and not give the games back to the other teams. For that to happen, the newly installed 3-4 defense has to function properly, particularly in the base defense, when the outside linebackers have to be able to cover pass receivers.
