Early in the FOX broadcast of the Eagles-Steelers preseason game, sideline reporter Pam Oliver had a tidbit regarding the “Dream Team” label applied by the Eagles by backup quarterback Vince Young.

Oliver said that the Eagles are “sick of the whole thing.” She also said that, before the game, Vick told her, “We have enough pressure. We do not need to add any more.”

She also said that the team wants to portray an image not of glamor but of a hard-working, blue-collar mentality.

The front office should have thought about that before they rounded up a bunch of guys whose names connote luxury more than lunch pail.
