Quarterback Vince Young calls retooled Birds "Dream Team"

It was the kind of roster you see in Honolulu, not Lehigh U.

Michael Vick, Jason Babin, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Vince Young and Jason Peters were the Eagles’ Pro Bowl players in uniform, although the newly signed Babin and Young cannot practice until Aug. 4th under terms of the proposed CBA. Nnamdi Asomugha was on his way. Multiple Pro Bowl talents DeSean Jackson and Asante Samuel were, uh, still part of the plan but not at work.

And Eagles fans enjoyed it all. All it took for them to break into the old “Eagles” chants was a salute from Young, on the sidelines. Young, who goes through coordinators and coaches like he wears out shoes, couldn’t help but be caught up in the moment. The Tennessee Titans always had talent. But they rarely imported it on the scale the Eagles have.

“Dream Team,” Young said. “From Nnamdi to Cromartie, from Jason to myself. And I know they’re going to do some more things. It’s beautiful to see what we’re trying to go. I’m all for it. Whatever they ask me to, to be a scout team quarterback, a quarterback learning, whatever it is I’m just happy to be a part of a team.”
