Let's get to the links:

The Notebook, NFL Week 3: Problems with Chip Kelly's offense - Stephen White, SBN NFL
Former NFL defensive end Stephen White is back with his Notebook from Week 3. He takes a deep dive on the film from Chiefs-Eagles.

Week 4 NFL picks - Jimmy Kempski,
The Eagles got shredded Week 2 by a QB (Philip Rivers) who got his team up to the line quickly, identified the defense, then checked to a more favorable call. Peyton Manning is the master at that. Or a shortened version of this pick could just read... Peyton Manning is good, and the Eagles' defense isn't.

Fixing the Defense - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
So what can be done to fix the defense? Time. There is no substitute for experience. The coaches are trying to learn the players. The players are trying to learn the scheme. And the players are learning to function together within the scheme. I’ve been studying Eagles games for more than a decade. I have to watch defensive plays over and over because I don’t always know what’s going on. The 3-4 feels completely foreign to me and and I’m sure it feels the same way to some of the players.

McCoy: ‘If I Was A Betting Man, I’d Take the Eagles’ - Tim McManus, Birds 24/7
LeSean McCoy started off his press conference with a smile on his face and the following message to deliver: "I am 1-0 against Peyton Manning, I am," he said, drawing laughs.

Eagles' schedule soft - after Sunday - Sam Donnellon, Daily News
So relax Sunday. No matter how ugly it looks. The Eagles may not look much like a playoff team right now, but neither does a large majority of the teams left on their schedule.

O-line braces for Denver after K.C. manhandling - Geoff Mosher, CSN Philly
One of the surprises from the Eagles’ loss to Kansas City last Thursday was the play of the offensive line. After two phenomenal efforts, Chip Kelly’s five-man wall of protection had trouble keeping the Chiefs off Michael Vick’s back. Vick, in turn, had his worst game of the season. He completed 43 percent of his passes, threw his first two picks of the season, was sacked more times (six) than the total of his first two games (five) and hurried much more.

Earl Wolff Ready For The Call To Start - Alex Smith,
The Eagles hit the practice fields again on Wednesday as they get set for their mile-high matchup with the Denver Broncos. For the second straight day, however, safety Patrick Chung was sidelined. Chung injured his shoulder against Kansas City, and his status for Sunday remains up in the air. If Chung cannot go, the door is wide open for Earl Wolff to step in and make his first NFL start.
