While the Eagles rolled over an inferior opponent in Week 1, their Week 2 opponent struggled mightily a blowout loss. However, there’s no reason to think Sunday Night’s matchup against the Falcons will be easy.

The Eagles have a slew of fantasy producers thanks to a high-speed, versatile attack, and a defense focused on what matters most in the majority of fantasy leagues—pass rush and picks. Here’s a look at how the Eagles fared in the fantasy world, which in most cases was not entirely unlike how they did in reality.

Donovan McNabb had a wormball of a weekend for the Vikings while Kevin Kolb made the Arizona Cardinals management feel a bit better about all of that cash they shelled out for him. Kolb was great over the weekend and on Monday was asked about his old team on the Scott Van Pelt Show.

Any Eagles fan up late on Sunday night watching the first Sunday Night Football game of the season had to be thrilled watching Tony Romo throw one of the ugliest passes to Jets corner Darrelle Revis. Adding a bit of insult to the Cowboys collapse and eventual loss was the botched snap on the second to last play. Watching the ball bounce off Romo’s thigh as he made a perfect Romo face was priceless.

The guy who makes you scratch your head and wonder how he does it, not surprisingly, was Mike Vick. The “Escape Artist” move in which he avoided a sack, miraculously kept his balance, and added a spin move deke for good measure was the stuff you watch in awe.

I literally laughed out loud. Merrill Reese sure knows how to calm a Birds’ fan down though.

Danny Watkins will not be your opening day starter for the Eagles and a familiar face is back in the secondary.

Terrell Owens, who knows a little something about holdouts, was asked if he would be play Week 1 in DJac’s situation, and not surprisingly, T.O. was adamantly opposed.

The Eagles trimmed their roster down to 53, a near-final version of the team.

More than almost any other sport, for a football team to win you need every single player working together. But that doesn’t mean individual stats are any less fun to talk about. Bodog released their list of individual player prop bets for the 2011 season recently and we’ve listed the Eagles lines

The Eagles left the Meadowlands with the all-important preseason win, dropping the Jets by a 24-14 count, and they got a good look at some of the guys who could play key roles later in the season. A few guys will be pretty sore today though, with last night’s starter Vince Young coming up lame with a hamstring issue as he rolled out for a red zone strike.
VY was having a very good night until that point, throwing for 193 yards (15 for 23) and two TDs, and generally looking pretty comfortable. On that final pass though, he pulled up without contact, wincing and grabbing his leg. After the game, he said he’d get an MRI when the team returns to Philly, but Andy Reid thinks he’ll be ready to go for the season opener. It was encouraging to see VY with a smile on his face on the sideline not long after coming out, and after the game he said it felt pretty good. No word on whether he’ll tweet the MRI for us.
Mike Kafka had a scary moment too, taking a nasty hit to the chest, and for a minute it looked like the Eagles might have to send emergency QB Jason Avant in. Kafka was able to resume play though. Surprisingly, Riley Cooper was also OK after the hit you’ll see in the video below.

The Eagles head to New York to play their final preseason game against the Jets.

Randall’s No. 12 is still a fixture among Birds fans in the stands at the Linc on any given Sunday, but it’s not officially retired. That said, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie thinks so highly of Cunningham that he doesn’t want to give up No. 12 unless Randall approves.

The bulk of the guaranteed money in Michael Vick’s six-year contract comes in the first two years, meaning the team is only on the hook for big money through 2012.
