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.

Michael Vick has missed 23 regular-season games (and two preseason) in his NFL career because of injury. Here's a breakdown, if you will, of No. 7's various troubles: 2001 Missed one game with a rib injury when Carolina safety Damien Richardson drilled him as he crossed the goal line scoring his first NFL touchdown. "You get hurt sometimes, you've just got to deal with it," Vick said. "I'll just rest a little bit and I'll be all right. " Bottom line: Injured while scrambling.

Michael Vick missed a pair of events in the South this weekend after probation officials restricted his travel. The Eagles quarterback, who has homes in Pennsylvania and Virginia, was barred from attending a football camp in Raleigh, N.C., and a charity golf tournament he was headlining in Tucker, Ga. Vick's travel has been subject to review by probation officers ever since his release from jail in 2009 on a federal dogfighting conviction, according...

Nothing that happened on the field - not even the return of three-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady - could trump the shocking news last night that quarterback Michael Vick had signed with the Eagles. As the Eagles played the New England Patriots in an exhibition game at Lincoln Financial Field, a team source said the deal, which is for one year and an option, was actually agreed to Tuesday; the team did not plan to announce it until this morning. According to Fox Sports, Vick will be paid $1.6 million this year, with a chance for the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback to make $5.6 million as part of a 2010 option.

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.

For the last two weeks, Michael Vick has been the talk of this and a lot of other towns. Now, he's actually going to play. 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. Exactly how or when Reid plans to use Vick remained a mystery. "We'll just see how we use Michael," the coach said. Asked about his specific plans for Vick, Reid wouldn't reveal anything.

Historic rerouting A large township sewer line running alongside an exceptional stream in a national park is a very bad idea ("Sewage spill mars trout stream," March 19). It is absolutely inexcusable that the main that burst last week in Valley Forge National Historic Park was so poorly maintained, and that it has yet to be replaced, even after an earlier break in February. Now is the time to reroute this line so it runs entirely outside the park.

ORLANDO - With Michael Vick's tenure in Philadelphia concluded, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie could not hide his pride when describing Vick's five years in Philadelphia and the risk the organization took in 2009. "It was a leap of faith," Lurie said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. "We hoped that Michael would be the person he professed he really was and wanted to be, and would be that way in the community. He hit all markers at a 100 percent level. " Lurie reflected on the "second chance" the Eagles gave Vick after he served 19 months in prison on a dogfighting conviction and how it paid off though Vick's influence in the locker room.

ORLANDO - The Eagles are interested in signing former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, according to a league source, but their medical staff needs to evaluate him before they can reach a deal. Sanchez missed last season with a torn labrum (cartilage) in his right shoulder suffered on Aug. 24, making a medical evaluation an important prerequisite before signing him. If healthy, Sanchez would fill the team's need for a veteran backup after Michael Vick signed with the Jets last week.

ORLANDO, Fla. - One of the questions arising from the departure of Michael Vick is about what the Eagles are going to do at the quarterback position, behind Nick Foles. Given Chip Kelly's oft-stated enthusiasm for 2013 rookie Matt Barkley, will the Birds just move Barkley up a spot and draft a QB, making the whole group extremely inexperienced? Or will a veteran come in and either compete with or usurp Barkley? We moved closer to an answer yesterday, when ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that the Eagles were the favorites to sign Mark Sanchez, the 27-year-old the Jets jettisoned when they signed Vick.

ORLANDO - When the NFL last convened at the Ritz-Carlton here for its annual league meetings, the Eagles arrived ready to shop Donovan McNabb. Four years later, the team's top decision-makers arrived at the posh resort apparently ready to rid themselves of Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson. Jackson's future will be one of the biggest stories at this week's meetings, which begin Monday and provide a rare occasion for owners, general managers, and coaches to gather in the same place.

I FIND MYSELF in the strange - and, believe me, unenviable - position of envying New York. Pay attention, because this is a Halley's Comet-like event, unlikely to reoccur during anyone's lifetime. Michael Vick has been signed by the Jets, and will battle with Geno Smith for the job that was unceremoniously ripped from the handsome, and ripped, Mark Sanchez. And all I can think of is: Lucky Gotham. It's not so much that I think Vick will take them to the Super Bowl, even though he has a better chance of doing so than my beloved Tim Tebow and my less-than-beloved, but equally notable, Brett Favre.

JEFFREY LURIE, you might recall, agonized over whether he wanted to bring Michael Vick to the Eagles back in 2009. Vick had to travel to Lurie's Main Line home to convince the team chairman that he was truly sorry for the dogfighting scandal that sent Vick to prison, that he would be the right sort of person going forward, on and off the field. Lurie was much less circumspect last night, after Vick's Eagles tenure officially ended, when the free-agent quarterback signed with the New York Jets.

Michael Vick moved north to the New York Jets Friday night after an improbable five-year journey in Philadelphia. It started with a cold reception from Jeffrey Lurie and ended with the owner making a glowing statement about the quarterback whose signing created a nationwide controversy. So now that it's over, what should we make of it all? "Much ado about mediocrity" would probably be the most fitting headline. Vick was here for 80 regular-season games. He started half of them and won half of the 40 he started.

With each passing day, the DeSean Jackson saga appears to be more a question of when rather than if he will no longer be with the Eagles. A day after The Inquirer learned that the Eagles were actively shopping the Pro Bowl wide receiver and contacting other teams, the New York Daily News reported that Jackson would eventually be either traded or released, thus ending his six-year tenure with the team. The Eagles would obviously prefer receiving compensation - preferably a draft pick - for Jackson.

Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets on Friday, ending his five-year Eagles career. The 33-year-old free-agent quarterback, who could have sought a return to the Eagles as Nick Foles' backup, expects to compete for the Jets' starting job with second-year player Geno Smith. Vick agreed to a one-year deal with the Jets that will pay him $5 million in 2014. It was the best and perhaps only opportunity for Vick to compete for a starting job. The Jets also released Mark Sánchez.
