Dream team or bust?

The term “Dream Team” has been overused since it first was put into America’s sports. “Dream Team” has taken on a whole new meaning in Philadelphia lately. It is not only the Philadelphia Daily News and Comcast Sports Net that are going crazy over the Eagles “new” team, but also nation wide sources such as the USA Today and ESPN. They all seem to be jumping on the “Dream Team” bandwagon and closing their eyes to reality.

The reality is this: the highly hyped and newly acquired players have never played together in Philadelphia.

The Eagles acquired a lot of new players in the off season. Some of the new fairly young players are players such as cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and fellow CB Nnamdi Asomugha.

The Eagles new acquisitions are epitomized by their new back up quarterback Vince Young. He was Rookie of the Year in 2006 when he played with the Tennessee Titans. Young just signed a six year 100 million dollar contract. The Philadelphia Inquirer is calling him “The face of the Eagles Franchise.”

My prediction is this. The Eagles will finish 11-5. Sorry guys, I have lived in Philadelphia too long to predict them winning it all this year.
