Minutes after another Eagles victory, left tackle Jason Peters and defensive end Trent Cole discussed just how difficult it is to open the season 4-1. The two veterans have played 19 seasons combined, and they know 4-1 is an impressive feat. Even though a team built with an offensive emphasis became inconsistent on offense, and the defense needed to preserve a lead after surrendering three late touchdowns, the Eagles still escaped Sunday with a 34-28 win over the St. Louis Rams at Lincoln Financial Field.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Their inability to stop the run cost the Eagles too much in their first loss of the season, 26-21, to the 49ers on Sunday. The Eagles allowed 218 yards on 42 carries (5.2 per carry), including 119 yards on 24 carries to Frank Gore. "We are the ones that have to get ourselves off the field, there are no excuses," Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis said. "We have to be better against the run. " The Eagles came into the game 13th in the NFL at 105.7 yards rushing allowed per game, and the Niners were 17th in rushing with an average of 112. But the Eagles were without inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who was out with a calf injury.

One week into the NFL season, the Eagles are in the odd position of alternately hoping that last year's results meant something and also hoping they meant very little. On one hand, they would certainly like to see the Nick Foles of 2013 at quarterback when the season continues in Indianapolis on Monday night. Foles rebounded somewhat from a shaky first half against Jacksonville in the opener, but his overall game was not even close to the accurate and efficient play he showed a year ago. And on that other hand, the one that might be more important against the Colts, no one really wants to see the defense of 2013 back on the field again.

Sometimes you have to shed more than the blockers when you arrive in the NFL as a first-round draft pick being paid huge money to pursue the quarterback. Sometimes you have to blast through the hurtful rhetoric, too. Injury-prone , underachiever and, worst of all, bust have been attached to Brandon Graham's name. He heard them all. "The hardest part was hearing the fans saying what they say and hearing the media and I wasn't able to defend myself because I was hurt," the pass-rushing outside linebacker said Wednesday after the Eagles finished their first day of practice in preparation for Monday night's game against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

It had been nearly three years since Darren Sproles had as many carries as he did Sunday against the Jaguars. But one rush in particular ignited the trailing Eagles and helped turn a 17-point deficit into a 17-point win. Faced with a fourth and 1 at the Jaguars' 49, the offense hustled to the line. Center Jason Kelce said the defense didn't look set, and when Sproles got the handoff in an inside zone read play, he ran through a giant hole. Kelce had the key block, and Sproles scampered virtually untouched into the end zone.

THE EAGLES' defense was tied for third in the NFL in takeaways last year with 31. Those takeaways, along with more of a pass rush from Trent Cole, turned a disastrous defense into a serviceable defense by the end of the season. They rescued a defense that just couldn't get off of the field, and they did it time and again. The Eagles played it safe in the secondary, choosing to keep everything in front of them - as much as they could, anyway - and take away the big plays. The Eagles themselves might not have called it bend-but-don't-break, but that was the reality most weeks.

WITH A FEW notable exceptions, pass rushing historically has been a young man's game. In the last three years, a total of 58 edge rushers - 4-3 defensive ends and 3-4 outside linebackers - have recorded 10 or more sacks in a season. Just seven of those 58 were 32 or older when they did it. Late Hall of Famer Reggie White put up 12 sacks at 34 and 11 at 36 and 16 at 37. Fellow Cantonite Bruce Smith had 84 sacks after his 32nd birthday. Kevin Greene recorded 15 sacks when he was 36 and 12 more when he was 37 before retiring.

It was another placid day at Camp Chip on Wednesday. No fights, no controversy. Very little that resembled news. Just another day of work for a team that has settled into a nice routine under a coach who is anything but routine. "We're back at it today, and that's great," Chip Kelly said. "That's why we're here. " Unlike a year ago, when everything was new on both sides of the ball and a number of jobs were up for grabs, you probably could write out the starting lineups for the Sept.

LeSean McCoy emerged from the scuffle still enraged, needing to be restrained from going after Trent Cole again. The Eagles' star running back was upset when Cole, a veteran linebacker, pushed him off the line during a seven-on-seven drill Sunday. The first fight of training camp ensued. "The whole camp so far, it's been touching a little too much," McCoy said. "And I'm trying to let them know, 'It's OK if you can't cover me.' " McCoy flashed a smile and emphasized his friendship with Cole.

SOMETIMES WHEN we touch, the honesty's too much . . . LeSean McCoy has probably never heard that 1977 Dan Hill song, and he is much better for it, since it regularly earns a high spot in polls ranking the worst-ever lyrics. But McCoy had an issue with being touched yesterday by his Eagles teammate and buddy, Trent Cole, after McCoy became the 879th running back, by unofficial Daily News count, to elude the second-day training-camp pass coverage of a pursuing linebacker. Some Eagles described the touch as more of a hard bump, in what was supposed to be a noncontact session.
