Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick announced on Wednesday that the “dream team” label associated with the current Philadelphia Eagles is now “dead”
Speaking about the teams situation Vick revealed:
“The dream team … that word is dead now,” Vick said. “Can’t talk dream team anymore. Maybe it put pressure on some players, maybe it didn’t, but I think just the fact that it was lingering around and people were talking about it creates a” sense of pressure.
“So it’s over with. We’re just one of the teams that’s got to scratch and claw from the bottom.”
During comments made on the teams official Website on Tuesday Michael Vick had basically echoed the same sentiment:
“The dream team thing is over. Now we just have to forget about everything that’s happened and take it one game at a time. That’s what I’ve sensed in the locker room. I sense change. Nobody’s happy about this.”
The “dream team” moniker was first assigned to the Eagles by backup QB Vince Young after they had signed a bunch of high profile stars during the off-season including cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, defensive end Jason Babin, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins.
Now with three games lost in a row the Eagles are 1-3 while sitting in last place for the NFC East, at one point squandering a 20 point lead to the San Francisco 49ers.
Do you think the Philadelphia Eagles still have what it takes to pull their “dream team” together and possibly secure a spot in the NFL Playoffs in 2012?
