One of the biggest mysteries this NFL season is what type of offense first-year Philadelphia Eagles Coach Chip Kelly will run. Now we have a bit of a hint. Kelly named Michael Vick the Eagles' starting quarterback Tuesday, giving him the nod over Nick Foles and dark-horse rookie Matt Barkley. The coach had been expected to announce a starter for the exhibition game against Jacksonville, but instead named Vick the permanent No. 1 quarterback. “It's not a one-game trial basis,” Kelly said, according to USA Today.

This post has been updated. See note below for details. Here's a twist: a situation where a trip to Las Vegas is the safe bet for anyone who doesn't want to gamble. The Eagles will be hitting the road for a summer tour in the wake of the “History of the Eagles” documentary now running on Showtime, and tickets for the first round of shows will become available first to American Express cardholders on March 23, and then go on general sale March 28. The first 11 shows, however, include no stops in Southern California, but constitute a run through the nine Eastern states and Ontario, beginning July 6 in Louisville, Ky., and concluding July 25 in Bethel, N.Y. The only date west of the Mississippi that the long-running country-rock band has on the books for now is March 23 at the MGM Grand's Garden Arena.

The video, which reportedly was shot June 8 at a Kenny Chesney concert at Lincoln Financial Field, first appeared on CrossingBroad.com. Cooper, who is a key player for a team that just lost receiver Jeremy Maclin to a season-ending knee injury, released an apology through the team and on Twitter: “I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself,” he said.

Fans of handmade design who fear the window has closed on ordering from Etsy or other online sources, you have hope: The push to add more original artisan goods to store shelves means you just might be able to find the work of folks such as Melissa Tolar and Jonathan Ballak in a last-minute run to brick-and-mortar boutiques. Working under the name A Question of Eagles , Tolar and Ballak have a line of gift-able ceramics, quilts and jewelry.

Three of the Eagles, the band that will kick off a new era of concert-going at the Forum in Inglewood when it reopens Jan. 15, waxed nostalgic about their own experiences at the 45-year-old facility that's being reinvigorated to the tune of nearly $100 million by Madison Square Garden Co . “It was always a great-sounding room,” founding guitarist, singer and songwriter Glenn Frey told The Times moments before taking the dais to address a...
