It’s not quite “dream team,” but it’s close.

New Eagles defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga, freshly arrived from San Francisco, went all in during his introductory press conference.  “I believe and I promise that we are going to shock the world,” Sopoaga said, via Jordan Raanan of NJ.com.

There’s nothing wrong with enthusiasm.  But it’s important for teams to manage expectations.  Setting the bar too high in the offseason and not making it can be a lot worse than having a lower target and easily clearing it.

Today, Sopoaga pushed the bar higher than anyone expected it to be in Philly this year.
