Philadelphia Eagles “Dream Team”

I just watched a segment on ESPN and although it’s nice to be the center of the spotlight, it’s weird seeing the Eagles labeled as “the team to beat”. I laughed out loud when Vince Young said we are the dream team and the reporter declared it as the biggest boast ever from a back up QB. So the Eagles have signed Nnamdi Asomugha, Ronnie Brown. Jason Babin (again), Vince Young and Cullen Jenkins and now they are shoo in to win the Superbowl? Comparisons are being made to the Miami Heat. Am I missing something here? I will say in this post and mark my words “Mike Vick will not have as good as year as last year.” Somehow last year, after being in jail, Mike Vick was able to hit targets. He couldn’t pass worth a lick on the Falcons. Was it a fluke or did he actually improve after being in jail? DeSean is one hit away from the end of his career. Shady had a break out year and I’d be amazed if he was as good. Being in Philadelphia it’s hard not to just jump on the band wagon, but I really try to be a realist with my observations. Now this one isn’t racist (ok maybe it is) but black quarterbacks don’t win Superbowls. I know it’s not a fair because Trent Dilfer won a superbowl and if I were the QB they still probably would have won. The fact that there is all this talk about how good they are is going to be their downfall. Something bad will happen, the players will get frustrated, team chemistry will collapse and there’s another season down the drain. Don’t say I didn’t tell you.
