Dream Team my ass.
Social activist Elliott Larsen once said, “Anger always comes from frustrated expectations.” And every Eagles fan woke up angry Monday morning — angry that their team gave up 21 unanswered points to lose to the 49ers; angry that their team is now 1-3 and in last place of the NFC East; and most of all angry that their team is not a “Dream Team.” Even Michael Vick proclaimed when asked how he felt after the game, “I’m frustrated.”
In fairness to the Eagles, this whole dream team nonsense was placed on them by their backup quarterback, Vince Young, not a player who actually plays. But the nickname stuck, in part because it was embraced by the Eagles organization. Could you imagine a new player signing with the Patriots, then proclaiming them the dream team? He might get cut the next day.
