Vince Young, Ronnie Brown and Steve Smith are gone.
Indeed, the Dream Team is now simply the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles.
Coming off a disappointing 8-8 season, the Eagles reconvened as a full team Tuesday for the first time since missing the playoffs last year. It was a season that was defined when Young deemed the Eagles a ''Dream Team'' in training camp after the acquisitions of Jason Babin, Cullen Jenkins, Brown, Smith and himself. But instead of making a deep run in the playoffs, the Eagles sputtered to a disheartening 4-8 start and failed to reach the postseason for the first time since 2007.
The Eagles began picking up the pieces by opening a two-week organized team activity Tuesday at the NovaCare Complex. It will continue with workouts Wednesday and Thursday, as well as three more sessions next week.

The offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles in March was quiet, calm, and everything was going well. Until news that Pro Bowl LT Jason Peters had ruptured his Achilles, that is.
Philadelphia’s offensive line was set to finally have continuity in 2012, which would have served to strengthen the foundation laid in 2011 . Peters and the rest of the o-line were no small part of what led...
How we let this one slip by is mind boggling. Of course the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders were in the Bahamas earlier this month to shoot the team’s bikini calendar. Guess we were busy staring at Cowboys cheerleader asses. Anyway, this one looks like your normal shoot. Sand, water, chicks with giant boobs, surf, sun, blah, blah, blah.
Sorry, ladies, it’s going to take a better...
Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham told the media on Tuesday that he’s a “bust,” and the criticism that he’s received has motivated him to prove people wrong.
At least Graham isn’t in denial that he’s completely under achieved after being drafted in the first round of the 2010 draft.
The 24 year-old Graham only played in three games this past...
Since the Eagles drafted him with the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, defensive end Brandon Graham has been hampered by injuries. If you consider 16 tackles and three sacks in two seasons contributing, I guess you could argue that he has been an asset for the Eagles. Otherwise, he has been a major disappointment. Fortunately for Eagles fans, Graham seems to embrace being...
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson isn't focused on the kind of improvement most players are in the typical NFL offseason program. Signed to a five-year contract extension in March, Jackson won't have to deal with the distractions he faced a year ago when he held out of training camp in a contract standoff with the Eagles. In fact, the newly minted receiver wants to reciprocate...
The Eagles took Brandon Graham 13th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft, a pick that has been widely criticized since, especially since the divisional rival New York Giants selected Jason Pierre-Paul 2 picks later. However, Graham’s struggles so far have not exactly been the Eagles’ fault or anything they could have foreseen. Graham has had a lot of issues with injuries in his first...

Regardless of where they came from, or when they formulated, they must be addressed.
