In the end it was all funny, of course, and the Eagles could joke about how close they came to a season-opening loss to the Cleveland Browns. They laughed in the same way that airline passengers do after a very turbulent flight ends safely. Heh, heh. That was a close one. Yes, it was, and the Eagles weren't sure the landing gear would hold on their final drive of the day, a 91-yard slog that was helped a little by a semi-bogus roughing penalty and helped a lot when Cleveland's L.J. Fort showed why he is a linebacker and not a wide receiver.

CLEVELAND - Standing under a scoreboard that showed the Eagles trailing the Cleveland Browns late in the fourth quarter, running back LeSean McCoy admitted to a worry that was likely widespread among Eagles fans. "Not this again," McCoy said. Michael Vick noticed his teammates wondering what was wrong with their quarterback, that Vick hung his head because of the overbearing guilt of "letting my team down. " It appeared an offseason spent trying to solve 2011's problems was a failure.

Here is Paul Domowitch's report card from the Eagles' win at Cleveland. Click here to enter your grades. We will publish the results in Tuesday's Daily News. RUN OFFENSE LeSean McCoy finished with 110 yards on 20 carries and had another 30 yards wiped out by holding penalties. Fifty-five of his 110 yards came in the fourth quarter. He kept the Eagles' game-winning scoring drive alive with a 3-yard run on fourth-and-1. Grade: B-plus PASS OFFENSE But for his 4-yard TD pass to Clay Harbor to give the Eagles the lead with 1:18 left, Mike Vick was absolutely awful.

CLEVELAND - Jeremy Maclin's bid for a breakthrough season began Sunday in a 17-16 Eagles win over the Cleveland Browns with a performance that could be hailed for its achievements or panned for its shortcomings. Maclin dazzled with seven receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown, but he also was treated twice for injuries, watched a Browns interception deflect off his hands and committed two penalties. The achievements included a 48-yard reception at the end of the first half that Browns coach Pat Shurmur said was all Maclin: Browns cornerback Buster Skrine stayed with Maclin and the Eagles receiver still made the play.

CLEVELAND - Michael Vick tied the black do-rag behind his neck, parked the white headphones on his forehead, and grasped the handle of his rolling carry-on. The Eagles quarterback was more than ready to leave Cleveland Browns Stadium Sunday evening, with this lesson, at least, learned: "I'll never take preseason for granted again," Vick said, with a weary shake of his head. "Need that work. " If the Eagles are going to have a decent season, you have to hope that was the root of the problem Sunday, those much-discussed dozen snaps Vick recorded in a pair of preseason games, before exiting with an injury each time.

The NFL culture already prompts coaches to conceal game plans and schemes like ATM pass codes, and the Eagles and Cleveland Browns encountered a scheduling anomaly this summer that added even more paranoia to the preparation for Sunday's opener. The teams played a preseason game Aug. 24 at Cleveland. That created a situation in which coaching staffs from the same tree - Browns head coach Pat Shurmur, offensive coordinator Brad Childress, and defensive coordinator Dick Jauron are former Eagles assistants - spent an entire preseason game operating with the most basic offensive and defensive schemes possible.

Recent history: The Eagles defeated the Browns, 27-10, in their third preseason game of the season. Their last regular-season matchup was on Dec. 15, 2008, a game the Eagles won, 30-10. The Browns lead the all-time series, dating back to 1950, 31-15-1. OFFENSE EAGLES: 399.1 yards per game (4th) BROWNS: 288.8 yards per game (29th) QUARTERBACK Eagles: Michael Vick played just 12 snaps in the preseason, and it remains to be seen how rusty he'll be in Week 1. Vick needs to be more efficient on third down than he was last year when he finished 26th in the league with a 71.1 rating and six interceptions in 103 third-down attempts.

The Eagles have some tough decisions to make come Friday, perhaps as difficult as they have ever had when faced with trimming their roster to 53 players. But every year they seem to find a way to keep their most talented players with few casualties. This year should be no different, although they may have to release a couple of budding youngsters and proven veterans that other teams could snatch up. The Eagles will comb the waiver wire as well following the 9 p.m. deadline, when final rosters must be sent to the league office.

EVERYBODY WANTS to know who makes the 53-man roster for the Sept. 9 Eagles season opener. Fact is, even with the Birds having flown from Lehigh Tuesday, to resume preseason work at NovaCare Thursday, the jury remains way, way out on roster spots. The Eagles have played one of their four preseason games. Everybody - yes, even safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, child of fan and media scorn after his inept performance in the preseason opener - still has a chance at redemption. The Eagles don't cut down from 90 to 75 players until Aug. 27, the day after the Flight Night practice at Lincoln Financial Field, and they don't have to get to 53 until Aug. 31, the day after the preseason finale.

CLAY HARBOR stays after practice each day to work on his pass-catching skills. Has a quarterback or a coach throw him 50 extra balls before he calls it a day and heads for the locker room. The extra work has paid off. Since training camp started 3 weeks ago, Harbor hasn't dropped a single pass. Not a one. Thirty-two practices and God knows how many passes thrown in his direction, and not one catchable ball has hit the ground. That wasn't the case this spring during the Eagles' minicamps and OTAs when the normally sure-handed tight end had an inordinate number of drops.
