DID YOU NOTICE? * Two of the Eagles' first three plays were out of two-tight-end formations. LeSean McCoy gained a yard on the first and Michael Vick picked up 2 yards on the other one. * Michael Vick's poor third-down pass to Jeremy Maclin on the Eagles' first possession. He had Maclin open for a first down and missed him. It was one of the few poor passes Vick made yesterday. He had just seven incompletions in 22 attempts. * Safety Kurt Coleman, who forced the first-quarter fumble that Juqua Parker returned for a touchdown, knocked the ball loose from Santonio Holmes with his helmet.

LOOKING BACK at the Eagles' 31-13 win over the Rams while wondering what Jay Paterno would be doing for a living right now if his father wasn't Penn State's head coach: BY THE NUMBERS * Because of the problems they had against the run, particularly early on, the Eagles stayed in their base defense much of the game. They used their nickel sub-package (two linebackers, five defensive backs) just five times in the first half and a total of 11 times in the first three quarters.

MICHAEL Vick was directed by the NFL to stay away from the Atlanta Falcons' training camp until the league "reviews the dogfighting charges against him. " What's left to review? Take the bodies of the dogs who suffered and review that! Vick is a monster. He hasn't talked publicly since May. Know why? He's a creep that no one wants to listen to! This'll be just like O.J. - he'll get away with bloody murders. Jennifer McShane, Wilmington, Del.

I'M SICK OF the dog-lovers going on about Michael Vick. Had he been just some regular Joe Sixpack, we'd never have heard a word from them. I wonder what these dog-lovers would do if the met a hungry child. Would they feed that child? Their whole protest is getting real old. I am not an animal lover, nor am I a football fan. But I'm truly sick of the moaning about Vick. Mr. Vick, you've done your time, you're playing good ball and your team seems to be behind you. Ignore these goofballs because, believe me, if you didn't have some money, they wouldn't give you a second thought.

Michael Vick may be the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback, but his new line of sportswear has a decidedly basketball look. The sporty menswear collection called V7, which Vick will introduce Wednesday morning at the Cottman Avenue Modell's, features two styles of shorts: loose, knee-length and the tight, compression kind. There are compression tops, too, and six graphic T's that blast inspirational, Nike-style quotes: "It's not how you start, but how you finish. " (A motto for his career?

A year after his release from prison, Michael Vick is probably worth less now - in terms of football value - than he was after serving 18 months for dogfighting crimes. The quarterback, who received hardly a nibble from other NFL teams this off-season as the Eagles dangled him on the market, said that the tepid interest did not come as a surprise. "Actually, I understood because I'd been out of football," Vick said Monday after a workout at the NovaCare Complex. "I didn't play behind a center for three years.

Eagles coach Andy Reid confirmed after practice yesterday that the quarterback will be in uniform for tomorrow night's exhibition game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Lincoln Financial Field.
