Celek laments decline of Eagles


The Dream Team that became a potential dynasty has now become a potential laughingstock.

And tight end Brent Celek knows it.

“I’m embarrassed of losing, to be honest,” Celek said after the Eagles’ seventh straight defeat, according to John Gonzalez of  “To be a team that was considered basically one of the powerhouse teams in this league, and to probably have teams come in here and laugh at us?  That’s embarrassing.  I don’t want to be part of something like that.  I want to turn it around.  I want to win games. Like I said, it makes me sick.”

Celek stopped short of saying that he’s actually experiencing laughter on the field.  He’s just saying that opponents “probably” are laughing, and that Celek would be, if he weren’t in the middle of the mess.

The question is when will the laughing stop?  The Eagles head to Dallas on Sunday night, for a rematch against a Cowboys team that already has beaten the Eagles once.  Then it’s a trip to Tampa, where the losing streak could extend to nine.

If the Eagles return to their home field at 3-10 and facing the hot (for now) Bengals on a short week, things could get uglier than ever.

For the fans, it might be a good idea to laugh.  Especially since the only alternative is to cry.

    I can’t believe the Eagles will have a top 3 pick in next years draft.

    As was evident by the half empty stadium last night, I wouldn’t be holding your breath for things getting “uglier” in Philly. We’re done. Moved on. Just waiting for Reid to be fired.

    Now if for some bizarre reason lurie decides to bring the big man back next year- then things will be ugly

    How can you have a “dream team” with a salaray cap? It’s the equalizer. They signed or even overpaid a few players, at the detriment to their entire roster. You want a dream team? Get a real franchise/elite quarterback and build around him and add some real depth.

    How is that trading up in front of the Giants once a draft working out?

    What’s the point on winning now, just lose and position yourself for a good draft.

    Celek has felt their chances bouncing out of his hands like a pass from Michael Vick…

    I know players and coaches on the Eagles want to win games.. But if your a Philly fan winning meaningless games in the NFL once your eliminated only serves to damage your draft stock and if your in week 12 and have already lost 8 games, winning from here on out only serves to damage the organization in the future.

    Hard to believe that the best, most talent-laden roster in the NFL is losing like this.

    He should have stayed in Hawaii with Higgins and the red ferrari. Ooops, wrong Selleck.

    Another person over hyping Nicks again. What a shock. And other than maclin over nicks, when have the eagles trading up in front of the giants??

    So sad, I tuned in and thought I was watching a Jags game.

    They traded up in front of the Giants when they took Brandon Graham over Jason Pierre Paul… That’s worked out so far huh?
