New segment day! This is called “how did it happen?” I’ll give you an example.
How did this dream team fall on their butts and into the oh so average fifteenth place?This is how. The Eagles in September were given a label other contenders could only dream of – the dream team. Sadly, they did not rise up to the name – in the least. Everybody thought Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and Desean Jackson were unstoppable.
Let’s go back to the last time they said a team was unstoppable. That would be last years Dallas Cowboys, who have been forgotten in the shame of the Washington Redskins and glory of the Giants. Anyhow, EVERYONE said they would play in their own stadium in the super bowl, win, blah blah blah. And what did they do? They fell. Hard.
Back to the main topic, it seemed like the Eagles would be heading to Indy to face the Patriots. But, first, they were plagued by injury and overconfidence. DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy both had problems with coach Reid, and Vick lost a third of his season to his ribs. When you have your best three players have that situation – well, it pretty much sums up how it happened.
