ESPN.com: Michael Vick: Eagles no 'dream team'


Recommended Posts


Quarterback Michael Vick said Wednesday that the "dream team" label no longer applies to the Philadelphia Eagles.

"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."

The comments Vick made Wednesday echoed those he made Tuesday to the team's official website.

"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," Vick told PhiladelphiaEagles.com.

Backup quarterback Vince Young had dubbed the 2011 Eagles the "dream team" after Philadelphia collected a bevy of stars -- including cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, defensive end Jason Babin, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins and Young -- in a frenzied offseason splurge.

But the Eagles have dropped three consecutive games, blowing fourth-quarter leads in each, and at 1-3 sit in last place in the NFC East.
