    He was never known for his intelligence.

    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 agree with him after all of the players Philly has now signed out of basically nowhere. I think we might be looking at a Patriots vs Eagles super bowl.

    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.

    Then he goes and makes a stupid, dumbass and immature comment like this. If he just cried when the Nashville fans boo'd him how will he react when the Philly fans cuss him and chucnk snowballs at him?

    Vince needs to take the cotton of of his ears and stuff it in his mouth (and his tweeter).

    Time to shut-up, grow-up, study-up, and commit to being a teammate and to his craft.

    He is damn lucky to be in Philly.

    I'm cool with calling them the dream team, spread the word. Dallas just knocked out Miami Dream team, so I say it's houston turn to knock out the Eagles dream team in the super bowl. ahhh the state of Texas, were dreams come to die, LOL ok I need a new slogan, ideas anyone.

    As long as he keeps up with saying inflammatory stuff and being a general goofball? Yes.

    No more VIP Suite so back to the recliner
    Every chance I get. Hurling pads into the stands? Pouting like a crybaby? Sausage and tequila parties sporting the panther fist pump? Gimme a break.

    And I left a few out. The guy is a sausage case/moron.

    Best wishes to him. :clown:

    If they're the Dream Team, VY is Christian Laettner. :hobie:
