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.

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.

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...

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.

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]

IF YOU THINK Michael Vick is ticked off at Riley Cooper well . . . think again. The Jets' quarterback downplayed an ESPN.com report that quoted him as being annoyed that Cooper didn't seem grateful that Vick helped smooth over the Eagles wide receiver's N-word controversy. According to Vick spokesman Chris Shigas, Vick spoke with Cooper yesterday afternoon and they are "all good.

LeSean McCoy's right thumb is still wrapped, but the injury that caused him to leave Thursday's preseason game has not prevented the Eagles' Pro Bowl running back from practicing. McCoy said the thumb is "all right. " X-rays revealed that there was no fracture or ligament damage. "Right now, I haven't done so much with it as far as catching with it, running with it," McCoy said. "I've got two weeks.

CORTLAND, N.Y. - Watching Michael Vick throw a football never gets old. That oh-so-effortless arm motion followed by a dart-thrower's flick of the wrist followed by the piece de resistance : a perfect spiral that comes out of his hand like a bullet exiting the chamber of a gun. As evidenced by his .562 career completion percentage, the ball may not always go where Vick intends it to go, but it's still fun watching him throw it. And...

CORTLAND, N.Y. - Michael Vick made a play Tuesday that made you catch your breath - because even though he is 34 years old and spent 18 months in prison and is about to begin his 12th season in the NFL, he is still good for at least one play in any practice or game that will make you catch your breath. This time he was gliding backward in the pocket during a brief intrasquad scrimmage with his new team, the New York Jets, when he snapped his left arm downward to throw a 10-yard out to wide receiver Greg Salas.

Chip Kelly is all about the process, all about being a little better today than yesterday, and is content to let the todays pile up and eventually become a tomorrow. When Kelly talks about what he hopes the Eagles will accomplish in the training camp that begins as players report Friday and take the field Saturday, he usually says: "We just need to get better in all phases. " Better today than yesterday and on and on. Somewhere deep inside the NovaCare Complex, however, inside the offices where Kelly and his staff and general manager Howie Roseman have plotted the course and prioritized the weaknesses that must be improved, the answers are a little more specific.

In the summer of 2009, when the Eagles courted the contempt of dog lovers everywhere and signed Michael Vick, they made clear that they had sought out and received Tony Dungy's counsel and approval. During and after Vick's 18-month prison term for dogfighting, Dungy had become a mentor to him. This was no small thing. As the former head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts, as a man regarded as something of a moral compass within the NFL and its warped value system, Dungy wielded power and influence in fostering acceptance for Vick's return to pro football.

There is no longer any question that Nick Foles is Chip Kelly's quarterback this season. As Foles enters his third training camp with the Eagles, the coach said that Foles must work on the "intricacies" that can take a quarterback "from good to great. " The "good to great" ascension can be difficult - a best-selling business book is devoted to the concept - and Foles will attempt it as he follows his record-breaking 2013 with a season that could determine his future with the Eagles.

A YEAR AGO, the Eagles wrapped up their spring work on June 6, with optimism, to be sure, but also amid a lot of uncertainty. That was the day Michael Vick acknowledged that splitting the first-team quarterbacking reps with Nick Foles really did bother him, after Vick had parried similar questions for weeks. There was much speculation about what Chip Kelly's first training camp would be like - The tempo! The music! The smoothies! Players found it all intriguing, but to say everyone bought in completely to the new regime would be an exaggeration.
