“From Nnamdi [Asomugha] to [Dominique Rodgers-]Cromartie, to Jason [Babin] to myself,“ Young told the media on Saturday, according to Tim McManus of PhillySportsDaily.com. “I know they are going to do some more things. . . . It’s just beautiful to see where we’re trying to go.”

ohpleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease let VY start most of the season in Philly. If they hated McNabb they are going to just loooooooooove VY.

I think Vince is going to surprise some people. The fact that he went to Philadelphia shows a real maturation IMO. He wanted to be a backup with a good organization rather than start somewhere like Buffalo. Reid is a brilliant coach and can use Young's talents effectively -- if Vince chooses to listen to him. I think Vince is showing that he will.

I also think Philly fans are going to be better towards him than others do. The backup QB is always the most popular guy in town. If Vick goes down, the city will go into meltdown. If Vince comes in and does even a few things right (something I think he is capable of), the fans will start screaming for him to start. See: Rosenfels, Carlson, or Bucky Richardson. Philly didn't crucify Vick, and there was at least as much to work with on Vick's resume. I don't think Philly fans would fault Vince for getting in a scuffle at practice.

Some of y'all need to get over the grudge with Vince. He's not at fault for getting drafted by the worst team in sports. It's not his fault that *********s wore his jersey to Reliant. I'm personally feeling a lot better about Vince now. It hurt before because I had a lot of positive memories of the guy. Now I can root for him again, with the added bonus of watching him beat the Cowboys. I'm really hoping that Jerry looks out from his box in Arlington when Dallas plays Philly and sees 50,000 jerseys with "Young" on the back. I would LOVE to see Vince get a 50 yard run in OT to crush the Boys.

It's entirely hilarious that the backup QB is calling his new team The Dream Team and is making it sound like they should just mail the Lombardi to Philly. Even Babin's comments are hilarious as well.

The fact that VY happens to be that backup is just icing on the cake.

EDIT: You didn't hear Dan O. talk about how him and Peyton are going to be a dynamic duo (more like an ambiguously gay duo lol), or see Leinart saying that the Texans making it deep. Backup QB's should be seen on the practice field and almost never heard from. I don't know how "mature" this strikes me. Didn't hear him utter the words "Hard work" either.

I am a Giants fan so it's hard for me to root for the Eagles, however I normally always do when they play the Cowboys. I pretty much agree here. I was hoping VY would go to an NFC East team just to pay back all those VY/Cowboys fans that gave me grief all these years about how I should be rooting for the Titans because of the Horns. Now I want to see them rooting for the Eagles. I can't wait to see all of those Eagles jerseys at the Austin area Academy stores.

I don't think Vince knows what a 'Dream Team' actually is. The Eagles are far from that, but that's not to say they won't be a favorite for at least the NFC championship.

Let me just paint the timeline now:

Eagles get off to a great start, Vick is lighting it up.

Vick scrambles in a super hero-esk run, exposes his body to a tough hit from a defender and gets injured.

In comes VY. Starts off great, wins a couple of games.

His play begins to decline, he throws a few picks, drops a few games and fans turn on him.

Vince takes in a tequila party at Sausagefest 2 to try and make himself feel better.

His perceived maturation is uncloaked like virgin's dress on prom night.

Yeah, but there are a ton of guys in the NFL that do that. A lot of people wanted Chad Johnson here and he hit his coach during a game. Some even wanted James Harrison after he shit all over great players on his own team.

I just don't see why people still hold a grudge against a guy that has never done anything to this team or insulted the fan base. He loves this city. He also wanted to be a Texan. People act like he said he'd never play here or something, but it was the opposite. I'd think after like 6 years or whatever, people would be over it by now especially since he isn't a Titan anymore.

If anything VY has been given way more passes than any other player with the amount of talent he has, just because he is from Texas we are supposed to follow every dumb thing he says?

I won't and unless he changes drastically I will always remember the stupid comments/him in a Titans uniform celebrating with the Reliant stadium "titans fans"
No this is not "your house" Vince, I will never have any respect for him after that and since then he has just confirmed my opinion with his breakdowns.

There's still people out there who still think we should've taken Young . In fact these folks have the common line of " nobody even knew who Mario was " or " Mario wasn't even the best on his team " . These guys are clueless and have season tickets to boot .

True and I am pretty sure most of those guys get their own threads here too (James Harrison comes to mind as well as Mendenhall).

You have to remember that the original post of this thread was me quoting what vince said and then hoping that he has to start a few games for Philly this year along with Babin's comments. I can't help it if an ex-Texan and the last guy to help UT win a championship happened to make those comments, I would've posted them if Vick, Jackson or any of the other Eagles had said it because calling yourself a dream team when these guys have yet to practice together is just stupid no matter who says it.

Thanks, that negative 83 points really set me back. Too bad you have zero clarity around the situation. I am actually a huge Longhorn fan, and will always be grateful for his contributions to the Horns. However to sit around and act like his FAILURE as QB in the NFL is anything but his fault is ridiculous. Saved Fisher job? Please son, buy a clue.

Go read up on how Fisher and the tits org covered for him, all the missed meetings, throwing temper tantrums, throwing shoulder pads into the stands, getting into fights at strip clubs, etc. And every team in the NFL KNOWS it, the story is out. Why do you think he was cut and no one traded for him.

I actually want him to turn things around as a person. As a football player he has had the luxury of being the most talented person on the field just by setting foot on it......until he got to the NFL. You see, at this level, hard work beats talent. So it's a little hard for me to work up a bunch of sympathy for someone who has all the God-given talent in the world and pisses it away and then cries about it. Give me a freaking break, time to man up and go to work. You want sympathy? It's in the dictionary between sh!t and syphilis.

By all means, talk up the TEAM. If you have reason to spout off, then you're confident. If you don't, then you're just a loudmouth jackass being cocky. VY including himself in that "Dream Team" analogy was just cocky. Even Babin has more reason to be tweeting than VY. If VY would have deferred praise to his teammates and said something like he was just happy to be part of a dream team, then that would have looked like a sign of maturity. As usual, he's too stupid to even fake it.

DMC is hype rather than performance, Jenkins may have a good game or two but is essentially done and Donald Lee would be our 4th string TE. I'm not knocking the Eagles overall and they will be a good team but these moves smack of desperation to me. And I would bet against Vick having as good a season as last year.

I disagree about Jenkins but do agree that it is tough to see this Philly team putting it together. If they do it would be talent trumping intangibles, which rarely happens.

I especially agree about Vick and, despite all of the talent signed on defense, there are still questions (i.e. DRC underachieving, Jenkins' injuries, Babin as a one year wonder, etc.) and they have an OL coach running their defense.

Meh. That seems to be an overreaction, from what I saw.
When I went NFL.com, and watched question-and-answer session,
the "dream team" assertion seemed just fine. He was asked an opinion
on what he thought of HIS team's offseason moves. The look on his
face, and the tone of Vince's voice seemed more like jubilation than
arrogance.

It reminds me of the negative press Michael Jordan got after his
Hall of Fame induction speech. When I went to NBA.com, and watched
the whole thing, I saw a man getting a lot of things off his chest. Mike
was speaking from the heart, and when it was over, the media label him
as an arrogant prick. I'd advise everyone to see for themselves, instead
of running with popular talking points.

The words a lot of people are using against Vince Young seem blown
way out of proportion. I think the kid a do well with Andy Reed's
coaching. Mcnabb and Vick have similar skill sets, and Young is
just as talented. It's a win/win for everybody.

Other fans overplay the "crazy Philly Phan" angle. They've embraced some pretty unsavory dudes in that city, like Vick, Owens, and Iverson. I know they booed Irvin, but he was wearing a Dallas jersey. I don't see them throwing their own players under the bus that much myself.

Yes, I have been too busy to change all of that. Actually I have had the RM avatar up for months since the NFL season ended.

BTW, I am back in Madrid now however just spent the last 3 weeks in Barcelona with some friends we have there. RM are not the crybabies strangely obsessed with stealing your team captain. I would be hatin' that team a little more. :)

As for VY, I just want to see him have a chance to tear up the Cowboys. It will serve all those Cowboy fans right that jumped on the Titans bandwagon. I wanna see if they also jump on the Eagles bandwagon.

Meh. That seems to be an overreaction, from what I saw.
When I went NFL.com, and watched question-and-answer session,
the "dream team" assertion seemed just fine. He was asked an opinion
on what he thought of HIS team's offseason moves. The look on his
face, and the tone of Vince's voice seemed more like jubilation than
arrogance.

It reminds me of the negative press Michael Jordan got after his
Hall of Fame induction speech. When I went to NBA.com, and watched
the whole thing, I saw a man getting a lot of things off his chest. Mike
was speaking from the heart, and when it was over, the media label him
as an arrogant prick. I'd advise everyone to see for themselves, instead
of running with popular talking points.

The words a lot of people are using against Vince Young seem blown
way out of proportion. I think the kid a do well with Andy Reed's
coaching. Mcnabb and Vick have similar skill sets, and Young is
just as talented. It's a win/win for everybody.

I think Vince is going to surprise some people. The fact that he went to Philadelphia shows a real maturation IMO. He wanted to be a backup with a good organization rather than start somewhere like Buffalo. Reid is a brilliant coach and can use Young's talents effectively -- if Vince chooses to listen to him. I think Vince is showing that he will.

I also think Philly fans are going to be better towards him than others do. The backup QB is always the most popular guy in town. If Vick goes down, the city will go into meltdown. If Vince comes in and does even a few things right (something I think he is capable of), the fans will start screaming for him to start. See: Rosenfels, Carlson, or Bucky Richardson. Philly didn't crucify Vick, and there was at least as much to work with on Vick's resume. I don't think Philly fans would fault Vince for getting in a scuffle at practice.

Some of y'all need to get over the grudge with Vince. He's not at fault for getting drafted by the worst team in sports. It's not his fault that *********s wore his jersey to Reliant. I'm personally feeling a lot better about Vince now. It hurt before because I had a lot of positive memories of the guy. Now I can root for him again, with the added bonus of watching him beat the Cowboys. I'm really hoping that Jerry looks out from his box in Arlington when Dallas plays Philly and sees 50,000 jerseys with "Young" on the back. I would LOVE to see Vince get a 50 yard run in OT to crush the Boys.

he is a quitter who once owned the keys to the Ferrari and now in the back of the bus. He will ride the coat tails of those who actually have the mental capacity to perform on a week to week basis.

If the Eagles succeed, Vince Young will have nothing to do with that success...

and this is from a VY supporter and Texas fan...

DMC is hype rather than performance, Jenkins may have a good game or two but is essentially done and Donald Lee would be our 4th string TE. I'm not knocking the Eagles overall and they will be a good team but these moves smack of desperation to me. And I would bet against Vick having as good a season as last year.

I have been a member here for several years and you just gave me my first neg rep and told me to **** off for this post! (http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1738557&postcount=9)

Thanks, that negative 83 points really set me back. Too bad you have zero clarity around the situation. I am actually a huge Longhorn fan, and will always be grateful for his contributions to the Horns. However to sit around and act like his FAILURE as QB in the NFL is anything but his fault is ridiculous. Saved Fisher job? Please son, buy a clue.

Go read up on how Fisher and the tits org covered for him, all the missed meetings, throwing temper tantrums, throwing shoulder pads into the stands, getting into fights at strip clubs, etc. And every team in the NFL KNOWS it, the story is out. Why do you think he was cut and no one traded for him.

I actually want him to turn things around as a person. As a football player he has had the luxury of being the most talented person on the field just by setting foot on it......until he got to the NFL. You see, at this level, hard work beats talent. So it's a little hard for me to work up a bunch of sympathy for someone who has all the God-given talent in the world and pisses it away and then cries about it. Give me a freaking break, time to man up and go to work. You want sympathy? It's in the dictionary between sh!t and syphilis.

Vince Young is the ultimate UT Homer Fan barometer. If a guy stands his ground on here and tries to douse all the fires in these threads, then he is just a UT Homer Fan.

I liked the Leach-led Red Raiders but even I can't find myself making excuses for why several of his QBs and WRs just don't produce in the NFL.

Vince Young winning the NCAA championship was the best thing for Longhorn fans, and the worst thing for NFL fans. Because now we have a situation whereby certain UT fans can't separate their love for UT and the reality of the NFL life he's crapped away...all on his own, unassisted, 100%.

And for him to act like he has somehow been blessed by God to be on the Dream Team (as if he's a REAL part of that, by the way) it's just comical. It shows he IS a narcissist as I think maybe CND had proposed in the past. All that little kitty cat (Vince) sees when he looks in the mirror is a lion.

Dude is hilarious. It's like a perpetual tragic comedy.

Vince Young is like that dooshbagg bench warmer (the tall white dude) for the Jordan-era Bulls who would stand at the end of the bench and mean-mug the opponent and wave his towel, scream and jump up and down, and then run in and get his 1 minute of garbage time. He had nothing to do with that team's success other than to cheerlead and absorb the glory that oozed out of the other guys. That's where VY is headed. It's like Graham Harrell getting a SB ring with the Packers. BFD.

It was new Philadelphia backup quarterback Vince Young who over the weekend called the Eagles a "dream team," the kind of bulletin board fodder any division rival would be happy to have.

Well, Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, never one to hold his tongue, has heard about the talent Philadelphia has assembled as well, but apparently isn't impressed.

The Eagles may have Young, Nnamdi Asomugh, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Cullen Jenkins, but Ryan's still confident despite the Cowboys' free agent class being far more under-the-radar. So far, the only guys added to Ryan's defense have been defensive ends Marcus Spears, Kenyon Coleman and Jason Hatcher, who will begin practicing with the team later this week.

"I've got three bullies over there waiting for Thursday," Rob Ryan said. "These are proven players, and that's what we need. I don't know if we win the all-hype team, I think that might have gone to somebody else, but we're going to beat their ass when we play them."

The Eagles, surely, will note Ryan's comments. They should also probably clear more room on that bulletin board, because this won't be the last thing he has to say

Had a literal LOL right there. Still conflicted, though.

While I want Dallas to lose, it therefore means the Eagles have to do really well in order to beat them. BUT this means enduring VY and his stoopid remarks each week if the Eagles get on a roll and start winning.

On one hand, it would be great if somehow VY played vs. Cowboys and beat them badly. BUT I'd need him to regress in the next game and stink up the joint so badly that he pulls a hand grenade on Andy Reid. On TV.

Since there seems to be no way I can have all of that happen, maybe the best bet is to root for the Cowboys (since Vick will likely be the QB). The Cowboys won't go anywhere anyways, so I think I can root for them two times-per-year.

I dunno. Now I feel dirty for saying I will root for the Cowboys. Dammit.

What the **** does Casey Anthony have to do with Vick?? He killed dogs. He had them raped and tortured certain ones as bait dogs just to get scarred up and battered mentally.

And to say that Casey Anthony hasn't been villafied either makes you unintelligent or insane when she was plastered all over the news for months and had people all over the country wanting her to die. People didn't want Vick to die. They just wanted him to serve time. And now he got a key to the city of Dallas and has been put back on a pedastool and has all kinds of endorsements again. Stop trying to bring up other cases to dismiss what one person did. It doesn't change the fact that he tortured animals and how disgusting it was.

We all saw Artest run into the stands and attack people. It was wrong and it was stupid. He got villafied, because he caused violence and a family function NBA game.

Puhleeeze yourself. Stupid comparison. One person was found not guilty by a jury and one admitted guilt to multiple charges. One was the highest paid player in the NFL and one was someone totally unknown before her alleged crime.

And one is now a star with endorsement deals and the other one can't return to her home and had to be let back loose into the wild in an undisclosed location under threat of physical harm.

Casey Anthony is one of the most vilified people in the US.

SteveSlaton20, you need to get your shit together and quit that crap. If you disagree with someone, don't be a ***** by neg repping people for it. Win the debate, or walk away gracefully if you're not winning it, but don't puss out and hit people with neg rep.

Neg rep is for situations like THIS where you're not being a good message board citizen. Do you understand what I am saying? And if you neg rep ME, four others will come and boost me. Get on board, broseph.

Sticking up for OJ now?? What the hell does any of this have to do with the fact that these people you're defending still committed crimes? Whether you want to brainwash yourself into thinking that Casey Anthony wasn't villafied or that she is some American hero doesn't change the fact that the people you're defending (OJ, Vick) still committed horrible crimes involving torture and murder. This is obviously a race thing with you as usual and you're twisting things completely around trying to paint the guilty black people as victims and the guilty white people as if they've been portrayed as heroes. You're not trying to even look at anything with facts or with rationality. You just see the race of the people involved and form distorted beliefs.

There is no inconsistency. Casey Anthony is villafied beyond belief. She is at an undisclosed location due to fear of her life. OJ Simpson had an entire country of Black Americans cheering and celebrating because he got off for murder just because of his race. If anything the only inconsistency was that OJ had so many fans and followers wanting him to get off and Casey Anthony didn't. And how do you even compare the two when OJ was set free and went on for like another 12 or 13 years of freedom and may have lived in shame, but he was free? Casey Anthony just got off a few weeks ago. You have no idea what society will do to her in the next few years or even in the next few weeks. She just got set free!! You're also comparing two eras of history where the media exposure was completely different. This comparison is as baseless as it gets.

Vince Young is like that dooshbagg bench warmer (the tall white dude) for the Jordan-era Bulls who would stand at the end of the bench and mean-mug the opponent and wave his towel, scream and jump up and down.

Jack Haley. He and Mark Madsen were the 2 names I thought of when I heard VY's statement.

Also, is someone really comparing Vick with Casee Anthony. She is the most hated person in America. Hate for her is many times greater than it was for Vick. Maybe the reason you haven't seen commercials about her during football games is that SHE DOESN'T PLAY FOOTBALL. There is also the little-known fact that a football game hasn't been played since the verdict came down in her case. To compare the two really just shows a lack of intelligence.

And, the whites killing blacks BS is stupid, and played. Seems like pretty much every time I hear that a black male has been killed, it has been committed by another black male.

That's what's so funny about the Vince thing. My UT friends think I'm a Vince hater and a Texan homer because I don't think Vince could jump right in and start for the Patriots over Brady. I made the same argument with them I'm making here -- that Vince needs to grow up and there's no better place in the NFL to do so than Philadelphia. It's odd that when I say that here I'm a VY lover but when I say it there I hate him. I think it says more about other posters on each site than it does about me.

Said Reid:

"I've heard you guys comment about dream teams and all that stuff, and players come in talking about it, and all of that, but these guys haven't had an opportunity to practice. So right now we've got a lot of good-looking guys standing around watching. Obviously, dreams aren't reality. The reality will come when I can get my hands on them and get them into practice and we start grinding here like the other guys are grinding — that's reality. If you're dreaming in this league you end up in about the third row with a concussion."

Truth be told, I was very disappointed when McNabb left the Eagles because those last two games he played against the Cowboys were delightful especially the one when he danced his way out of the tunnel. Vick has been great for the team, and now Vince (in it to win it) is the making for an unsettling Christmas Eve.

OBTW, Dan B, 50K jerseys from another team "ain't" going to happen at Cowboys Stadium, lol. If anything similar to the past, perhaps 10 or so per section. Still can't figure out why the Eagles most dysfunctional seem to always be the ones to show up.

Dude, I feel for you. Something obviously has happened in you life to have a view that white people are evil. BTW, Michael Jackson was black not white and yet he got off too. If he did anything to you, he was actually black at one time so don't be mad at whitey.

Also, how do you feel when you read the this report of black people beating on whites? Sorrow, happiness, or jealousy? Where was Jesse, Al, or Barry crying this as an injustice?
http://www.jsonline.mobi/news/milwaukee/126828998.html?ua=blackberry&dc=smart&c=y

On OJ, how is that justice when a guilty person got off? The system didn't work. It failed. Why celebrate that?

The guy in Norway was not humanized. Nothing I have read has made me believe it.

How many people needed to die on 9/11 for us to justify bombing that hell hole people call Afghanistan? There weren't just white people in that building. Its because of people like you that make us weak. We as a country have to win the PC war instead of fighting the real war. If people like you would get out of the way people like me would have gone in, really bombed the crud out of the place where the Grand Canyon would be jealous and we would have been out already. The service men's/woman's life is more important than the PC war. I don't support putting our people in harms way to protect someone trying to kill us.

Some quotes from the Eagle's message board from fans attending camp on Vince Young Aug. 8.

V.Y. just missed DeAndre Brown by 11 yards. Best pass he's thrown today.

Havn't seen a single highlight of Vince in tc yet. Seems like one of those players who's head gets in the way.

Once he learns mechanics, how to throw from the pocket, and seeks therapy he will be fine trade bait.

They can call Young no. 2 all they want. Mike Kafka is way ahead of him right now.

I would post a possitive quote, but could not find one.

If you are going to pile on the guy, get your facts straight.

From Wiki -

Young was coached by Ray Seals at Madison High School in Houston where he started at quarterback (QB) for three years and compiled 12,987 yards of total offense during his career.[11] During his senior season he led his Madison Marlins to a 61–58 victory in the 5A Regionals over the previously undefeated Galena Park North Shore Mustangs, accounting for more than 400 yards of total offense while passing for three touchdowns and rushing for two more before a crowd of 45,000 in the Houston Astrodome.[10] After beating Missouri City Hightower 56–22 in the state quarterfinals, Houston Madison faced Austin Westlake in the state semi-finals. Although Young completed 18-of-30 passes for 400 yards and five TDs and rushed for 92 yards (on 18 carries) and a TD, Houston Madison lost 42–48.

Among the honors Young received in high school were:

being named Parade's and Student Sports' National Player of the Year after compiling 3,819 yards and 59 touchdowns (TD) as a senior,[12]
being named 2001 Texas 5A Offensive Player of the Year,[12]
designation as The Sporting News's top high school prospect,[11][12]
and the Pete Dawkins Trophy in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.[11]

Vince Young says “Dream Team” remark was taken out of context

Posted by Mike Florio on August 22, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT

AP
When quarterback Vince Young joined the Eagles last month, he called the club a “Dream Team.”

With “Dream Team” thereafter becoming the unofficial T-shirt slogan of the Eagles, Young now says his words were taken out of context. While also reiterating them.

“That’s pretty much how it go with Vince Young,” Young said Monday, via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “My words always get taken out of context. It’s just basically what I mean. We do have some really talented guys and I feel like if we continue to keep working and taking care of our responsibilities and finish like a team like we want to finish I feel like that’s pretty much how I called it.”

And so, basically, it’s still a Dream Team.

“That’s just how I feel,” Young said. “I don’t care what nobody else says, that’s how I feel about the guys here.”

And so, once again, the phrase “out of context” is used out of context to convey displeasure with the fact that someone is being criticized for the words that have come out of their mouths.* That’s why it was so refreshing last week, when Seahawks G.M. John Schneider admitted on PFT Live that he said that the Vikings “[expletive] on” Tarvaris Jackson, apologized for it, and moved on.

Eagles’ Castillo says LBs “will be ready to win the Super Bowl”

Posted by Michael David Smith on August 22, 2011, 7:36 AM EDT

With rookie Casey Matthews, second-year player Jamar Chaney and third-year player Moise Fokou starting at linebacker, the Eagles are inexperienced at the position. But Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo isn’t ready.

In fact, Castillo believes that by the time the Super Bowl rolls around, no one will be saying the Eagles’ linebackers are inexperienced.

“The linebackers will be ready to win the Super Bowl,” Castillo said, via Andy Schwartz of CSNPhilly.com.

Dream Team QB Vince Young's impostor caught:

http://nbcprofootballtalk.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/stephanpittman.jpg

The Prince George’s County Police Department has released the mug shot of Stephan Pittman, the man who was arrested on felony fraud charges today for impersonating Eagles backup quarterback Vince Young.

Seeing his mug shot, I can only assume Pittman was not a very successful Vince Young impersonator.

The balding Pittman is obviously older than the 28-year-old Young, and in a video of Pittman being brought into custody (http://pgpolice.blogspot.com/2011/09/video-prince-georges-county-police.html#.Tn0LAyDbPW0.twitter) he looks shorter and pudgier than the 6-foot-5, 232-pound Young.

Prior to Pittman’s arrest, Young said his impostor had received money from people who believed they were doing business with the real Vince Young, and that the impostor had taken pictures with children claiming to be the real Vince Young. Presumably none of the people who thought he was the real Vince Young have ever seen the real Vince Young.

Pittman had "no comment" on whether the 2011 Eagles are, in fact, a Dream Team.

Correct. This is what they are doing with him.
As far as what is going on with this team, this is what I see.
Three pro bowl CBs that can't or will not tackle. Bump the receiver down. Pro bowl left tackle who misses his asigment by double teaming a DT with the left guard and alowing his DE a free run at the QB.
Macklen and others swinging the ball around and not putting it away,
D. Jackson turning to plead with an official when the ball is picked by the CB covering him and not running after the man with the ball.
Could go on with more, but what is the sense?
The mind set looks to be let the other guy do it.
What they need is someone --a player-- to get into people's faces. The Eagles use to have that in Dawkens and I would love to see him back of this football team. It doesn't matter if he can still play or not. There is NO leadership in that lockerroom.
If you can not hold a 20 point lead against a team that you are clearly better than, you need someone to come in and punch you in the mouth. Simple as that.
You play the game on the field, not on paper.

Loading up with free agents has never worked in the NFL and doesn't work in most team sports. Baseball is the only sport I can think of where you can buy championships.

The key to success is strong drafts period. Sure landing a FA to fill a hole or 2 is one thing and works if accompanied by a strong draft. See the Texans situation with Joseph.

Moving on, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com says it's simple: the Eagles are losers.

The Eagles are losers. It's as simple as that. One more loss will ensure a losing record for a team that does nothing as well as it does losing. There was absolutely no excuse for the defense to come out the way it did in this game, playing soft, missing tackles and watching Marshawn Lynch, who it knew was Seattle's only real weapon, run over it at will. There was no excuse for DeSean Jackson, who's still moping about his contract after insisting he wouldn't, to be giving up on deep routes when he's the only deep threat the team has. There was no excuse for the Eagles' penalties, for not calling timeout after a third-down stop with a minute left in the first half, for sending 12 men onto the field for a punt return and having to call a timeout when they were still in the game and looked as though they might need their timeouts. These are the careless, lazy, undisciplined acts of losing players and losing teams, and whatever the Eagles might have been or should have been, this is what they are. They are 4-8. They are the most disappointing flop of a team in the entire league. They are losers.
