Some dude in West Chester, PA has a room full of these.
There was a lot of hype around the Philadelphia Eagles coming into this season. With several key free agent signings and the frenzy around born-again media darling Michael Vick, Philly fans were practically booking their trips to the Super Bowl already. Heck, even I had to acknowledge the Eagles were making some impressive moves to put themselves in contention.
Funny thing happened on the way to Indy. After barely squeaking by the as-yet winless Rams on opening day, the Eagles are on a 3-game losing streak. Evidently anointing oneselves the "Dream Team" does not make it so -- injuries, opponents, and just plain luck have something to do with it. With the "character" that's been revealed under such adversity (including in-fighting, contract hold-outs, and accusations the refs are biased), this thing could get worse before it gets better. So don't go buying your "Dream Team" t-s...

The Philadelphia Eagles were coming into this year's NFL season becoming the "Dream Team." But it hasn't started off so hot, as the team is now 1-3, recently coming off a 24-23 loss to the 49ers, blowing a 23-3 lead. Are they still a Dream Team? Michael Vick definitely does not think so, saying the Eagles being a "Dream Team" is now dead. "The...
Tim McManus of Phillysportsdaily.com reports Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who threw for a career-high 416 yards against the 49ers, said the middle finger in his throwing hand popped out of place in the first half. He was not listed on Andy Reids injury report.
I was just determined to finish the game, regardless of how I had to do it said Vick. And I did it. I wish...
In NFC East news not directly concerning the Dallas Cowboys this week, things aren’t exactly going as planned in Philadelphia. The Eagles are 1-3, and dead last in their division. The Redskins and Giants, at 3-1 each, are tied for first; your Cowboys are, fittingly, right in the middle of the pack at 2-2.
Anywho, Michael Vick is tired of the idea that the Eagles are, as backup...
After Michael Vick’s proclamation after last week’s loss to the New York Giants that he was ‘on the ground constantly’ the challenge for the offensive line was in place. On Sunday the Eagles squared off with the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial field.
The Niners entered the game boasting a much-improved defense from recent [...]
Michael Vick has backed out of a commitment to host a Monday night radio show in Philadelphia.
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback will no longer host WIP's "Chickie and Pete's Players Lounge" on Monday nights. Vick had promoted the show in the preseason and was scheduled to make weekly appearances but had...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Michael Vick says the 'Dream Team' notion is "dead," and the Philadelphia Eagles have to focus on being themselves.
This was an awful loss which could lead to some major changes down the road for this football team. This team has some serious problems, but at the same time, their talent is undeniable. Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson had big games. Jason Babin had a big day with three-sacks.
The talent is one [...]
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Eagles were in the middle of another fourth-quarter meltdown when the chant began echoing through the Linc: "Let's Go Phillies!"The best team money can buy may have been overhyped. Michael Vick and Co. are off to a 1-3 start, drawing the ire of fans who've put ...
Tyler Thigpen will never be mistaken for Michael Vick, but that didn't stop Chan Gailey from using the backup QB as a Vick clone in Bills practice.
Michael Vick looked more prime than ever. Maybe he still is.
The new free agents, Vince Young, Cullen Jenkins, Steve Smith, Nnamdi Asomugha, Jason Babin, Ronnie Brown and Dominic Rodgers-Cromartie (received via trade), seemed like a sure lock to make a playoff run for this Eagles’ team.
It started off promising with a win over the Rams.
Then the Eagles lost leads to the Atlanta...
Michael Vick recently called out game officials for failing to protect him on the field, but teammate Jason Babin sees something more sinister at work.

As it turns out, the Philadelphia Eagles are just like every other football team in the league. They have strengths, they have weaknesses, and if they want to win, they're going to have to work. This, regardless of the offseason attention they generated, has always been the case.
Michael Vick gets that. From an interview with the Eagles website:
"After being around the guys...
