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.

HARRISBURG - A rally in the Capitol on Tuesday for a low-profile animal rights bill received a jolt of energy from a high-profile - and perhaps unlikely - guest: Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Michael Vick. The former Eagle, who was convicted for organizing dog fights in 2007 and served 21 months in prison, urged support for legislation that would make it a summary offense to leave pets in hot cars with the windows closed. All pets deserve humane treatment, Vick told the crowd, while acknowledging that it took him years to understand how to properly care for animals.

No matter how Sam Bradford performs over the final five games of the season, the Eagles will have to make a franchise-altering decision at the quarterback position next offseason. It is a decision that will have far greater repercussions than anything having to do with the head coach. In today's NFL you need a quarterback of certain proficiency if you are to have any chance of winning a championship. It doesn't matter if Bill Belichick or Chip Kelly is your coach, if you have neither a Hall of Fame-caliber quarterback and an above-average defense nor a quarterback a notch or two below and a once-in-an-era defense, your chances of snaring a title are virtually nil. This isn't rocket science.

IT IS INESCAPABLE, this topic of violence and the NFL. It's as if the league relishes it. On the heels of Greg Hardy's latest battery-related upheaval, Rex Ryan and the Bills have called for a spotlight. To date, Ryan's most remarkable accomplishments since the Jets ran him out of MetLife Stadium center on his hiring practices. First, Ryan signed outcast hazer Richie Incognito in February. Then, Ryan traded for diva running back LeSean McCoy. Finally, Ryan signed fringe linebacker IK Enemkpali off waivers a day after the Jets cut him for breaking the jaw of franchise quarterback Geno Smith in a locker room fight . . . over a $600 debt Enemkpali believed Smith owed him. Thursday, Enemkpali will be one of the captains when the Bills visit the Jets for the first time under Ryan.

SIX TIMES on Saturday, Sam Bradford displayed why Nick Foles had to go. It's the same reason the Sixers had to draft Joel Embiid. Anyone who watched the examples of Embiid's nearly supernatural abilities during his yearlong rehab from foot surgery - the silky jump shots, the nasty dunks - understood that a man of his size, strength and athleticism comes along once in a generation. There have been Wilt Chamberlain, Hakeem Olajuwon, and, now, this guy. He is strong and will be stronger; he can run with an extra gear; he can jump with the body control of a man a foot shorter; and, not to be minimized, he can shoot, for some reason a rare skill among 7-footers with those other gifts.

IF THERE IS one position in sports where the most desired thing is stability, it is quarterback. If there is one position where the Eagles have seen consistent change during the brief era of Chip Kelly, it has been at quarterback. Whoever takes the Eagles' first snap on Sept. 14 against the Atlanta Falcons - whether it is Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow or somebody else - he will be the third different quarterback to open the season for the Eagles in Kelly's third season.

Heading into Thursday's game, it was hard not to feel good about my tight end matchup when I saw Larry Donnell in my opponent's lineup. After all, I had the option of Vernon Davis or Antonio Gates, while he was forced to sit Julius Thomas because of the bye week. By Friday, I was popping antacids, and my opponent was dishing out a heaping helping of smack talk. Enter Matt Asiata. When he plunged across the goal line for the third time Sunday, the tide had turned and my decision to draft Marshawn Lynch and Giovani Bernard back-to-back didn't cost me a Week 4 victory as expected.

Buddy Ryan coached and lived in Philadelphia for five years, long enough for his son, Rex, to understand that, despite all the stereotypes to the contrary, the core of the city's sports culture isn't bitterness. It's sentimentality. So Rex Ryan, the New York Jets' head coach, did an interesting thing Thursday night in an otherwise uninteresting football game: He started Michael Vick at quarterback and left him in for one play. Vick took the field, pantomimed throwing the football once, and handed the ball off to running back Daryl Richardson.

Matt Barkley did not create a backup quarterback controversy in his first start in an Eagles uniform. But if the 37-7 win over the New York Jets in the preseason finale Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field was an opportunity for the Eagles to measure the progress of the 2013 fourth-round pick, they can be encouraged by his improvement. The Eagles sat almost every starter and a few top reserves, leaving the game mostly for determining the final spots on the 53-man roster before it must be set Saturday at 4 p.m. "[Friday]
