In 2011 when the Eagles went hog wild in Free Agency it looked like the Super Bowl was theirs to lose. Then Young uttered the infamous words, “Dream Team.” Which turned into nothing short of a nightmare. It was so bad it cost former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid and his staff their jobs. Abysmal can be the only way to describe that season. Thankfully, the majority of those players are gone. Last season the Eagles had a miraculous season. And so far, the Eagles brass have decided to keep the family together.
But before “Dream Team II” stars circulating let’s make sure there is something to celebrate before we get too excited. Let’s at least sweep the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants before we start getting delusions of grandeur ourselves.
Free Agency should be interesting. Maybe the Eagles will bolster their defense with a pass rusher and a good safety. Then the pressure will be off for the draft. Grab the best player on the board and keep on rolling.
