Vick, Eagles don’t like the “Dream Team” label

Early in the FOX broadcast of the Eagles-Steelers preseason game, sideline reporter Pam Oliver had a tidbit regarding the “Dream Team” label applied by the Eagles by backup quarterback Vince Young.

Oliver said that the Eagles are “sick of the whole thing.”  She also said that, before the game, Vick told her, “We have enough pressure.  We do not need to add any more.”

She also said that the team wants to portray an image not of glamor but of a hard-working, blue-collar mentality.

The front office should have thought about that before they rounded up a bunch of guys whose names connote luxury more than lunch pail.

    The media will take an innocent statement and run with it; buck up boys.

    Eagles do remind me of an US olympic team, the 04 bronze medal team…….lol

    Then you shouldn’t have hired Vince Young. Guy is a known idiot (Wonderlic scores don’t lie…. He is illiterate by that standard). You are lucky he didn’t call you “The Rainmakers.”

    Vince Young already torpedoed the season without even knowing. Silly Pigeons. You’ll never win it all.

    LOL, get used to it.

    If they crack under this light pressure, they have no hope of going anywhere in the playoffs

    Looks more like “The Creamed Team”

    Too late now. You morons brought it on yourselves with your own words. Go ahead and cry over the spilled milk, though – it’ll make your flame-out that much more fun to watch.

    It’s a good thing.
    They’re not looking very “dream” like.

    Love Nnamdi’s tackling, by the way. Way to attack the ankles….

  11. djsquintz says: Aug 18, 2011 9:27 PM

    Can you blame them with how Vick is playing right now? INT number 3.

  12. nomoreseasontix says: Aug 18, 2011 9:33 PM

    And did I really see VY looking at the clipboard upside down?

    Between Vick and Young you could combine their IQ and not even sniff 150….

    The defense looks like swiss cheese,it has holes all through it.The linebackers are horrible,they need to move Chaney to the middle and go out and get a new strong side linebacker.

    They liked it for at least 3 days when Vince Young said it and the Eagles VP endorsed the “ALL IN” during that same time period. Way to back up your words…I mean back track.

    Again? Seriously? 🙄

  16. Deb says: Aug 18, 2011 9:42 PM

    Guess looking like a nightmare …

  18. Deb says: Aug 18, 2011 9:43 PM

    Oh I get it, you can’t say the word n*ghtmare. Why didn’t you say so? I know that’s a BIG profanity where I come from 🙄

  19. flagstaffphotos says: Aug 18, 2011 9:47 PM

    Three INT’s for Vick? They better hope VY comes in and plays like a dream-teamer.

    What do Vince Young and Dolly Parton have in common?


  21. ocho says: Aug 18, 2011 9:47 PM

    Its a valid label…the Eagles could potentially win a super bowl…in a dream

  22. therealsmiley says: Aug 18, 2011 9:49 PM

    Wow. See….this is what happens when you talk smack in the NFL. Now the Iggles have a bullseye on em’. The trick is to downplay your team until they win a Super Bowl. Hail!!

  23. joyjoy69 says: Aug 18, 2011 9:54 PM

    Is Pacman still available somewhere? He could make it rain for the fans!

  24. Deb says: Aug 18, 2011 9:56 PM

    Silly moderators … tricks are for kids 😛

    The Feagles will struggle all season trying to mesh all the ‘new talent’ ……. They’ll lose games trying to do this ……

    By season’s end, most will see that their biggest weakness is at the QB position ……. Vick’s play will more resemble his career QB Rating of 80.2 ….. VY will add nothing to the equation …… The Feagles could very well be in disarray by season’s end & not even a playoff team ….. 9-7 in my estimation ……

  26. kyleortonsarm says: Aug 18, 2011 10:28 PM

    I understand how the label could be annoying when applied to perennial duds like the Eagles.

    Right, blame the front office for doing their jobs. Try blaming VY and his stupid mouth.

    The only Dream is to think the eagles will win a Super Bowl….EVER

  29. n0hopeleft says: Aug 18, 2011 11:47 PM

    Jason Pierre-Paul is going to saw Vick in half.

    It Is The Dream Team all right, The Pipe Dream Team!

  32. tbonecostanza says: Aug 19, 2011 9:55 AM

    Where are all of the Eagle fans to post their vicious comments?

  33. schemefactory says: Aug 19, 2011 12:45 PM

    yeah, the usually loud and proud eagles fans are conspicuous in their absence with this post….

  34. dd393 says: Aug 19, 2011 3:36 PM

    Blue collar? Yeah, right, lots of blue collar workers drive Escalades.
