Paper Champions: Eagles Already Crowning Themselves

Free agency's biggest prize in Philadelphia.

The [intlink id=”374″ type=”category”]Philadelphia Eagles[/intlink] have made some great moves this offseason and their team looks like a Super Bowl contender, but we all know how many Super Bowls are won in July and August.

Well, at least those of us who can read and write beyond a 10th-grade level do. So it should come as no surprise that some members of the Eagles have already handed themselves the Lombardi Trophy.

[intlink id=”199″ type=”category”]Tennessee Titans[/intlink] retread Vince Young, who the Eagles signed over the weekend and probably hope never steps on the field, called his new team a dream team.

When asked to describe the players that have been brought in and the group that is being assembled, Vince Young cracked a wide smile and simply responded: “Dream Team.”

“From Nnamdi [Asomugha] to [Dominique Rodgers-] Cromartie, to Jason [Babin] to myself,“ Young continued, “I know they are going to do some more things…It’s just beautiful to see where we’re trying to go.”

Of course, if Vince Young were worth a shit he wouldn’t have been dumped for a 35-year-old Matt Hasselbeck, but that’s probably neither here nor there.

Jason Babin, the defensive end Philadelphia signed last week, got in on the act, too. Babin compared the Eagles to the Miami Heat on Twitter, saying “I feel like we are the Miami Heat of the NFL.”

He then apparently realized how stupid that statement was and deleted it.

The Miami Heat didn’t win anything this year and everyone outside of Florida hated them, so good thinking, Poindexter.

Babin, mind you, recorded 12.5 sacks in his contract season. He had 17.5 in the previous seven years of his career combined.

The Eagles best moves were acquiring cornerbacks Rodgers-Cromartie and Asomugha, which will shore up a pass defense that was torched by [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] in the playoffs last season. They’ve also added Cullen Jenkins who, if he can stay healthy, should bolster the pass rush.

It will be fun to see what all of these superstars and sure-fire Hall of Famers can do against the Packers four and five wide receiver sets or whether they can stop [intlink id=”209″ type=”category”]Jermichael Finley[/intlink].

For now, we should take time to congratulate the Eagles for winning the Super Bowl of the offseason. It was a tremendous accomplishment we’ll surely all remember for a long time.

Now that we’ve taken care of that, we can get back to reality where the path to the real Super Bowl runs through Wisconsin.

    Love it!!

    GO PACK GO

  2. we didn’t crown ourselves as champs ? we’re just sayin how good of a team we are and can be and we have a very very super ultimate chance of making and winning the superbowl. Nobody who has the team we have is going to say “oh well we have all these great players and we are going to just try to make the playoffs.” And the Heat comparison was dumb.. But I think he was just sayin that they have a great team and now we have a great team. so stop takin things out of content and makin something out of nothing. BTW! Sorry Packers fans but your not repeating =)

    Just wait until Vick goes down with an injury early in the season and the Eagles hit the panic button when Young is under center! Yikes!

    Iggle fans…the speaker of note was Vince Young.If Andy Reid and all else on the team didn’t feel that they just bought the SB,I don’t believe they would have allowed that idiot to speak those words.
    My question to you is…were they a Dream Team before or after Youngs signing? Geez

    That would be nice change, the path to the last Super Bowl ran through (and over) Chicago.
