That didn't take long. A month into the season and Vince Young's ill-fated "Dream Team" comparison is officially dead. So sayeth Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who is both frustrated and banged up after Philly's 1-3 start.

The most recent humiliation came at home Sunday against the 49ers, and that was a week after the Giants came to town and embarrassed the Eagles. Next up: Philly travels to Buffalo to face the 3-1 Bills.

"After being around the guys, today, I think everybody's just ready to let it all hang out," Vick said, according to the team's website. "The dream team thing is over. Now we just have to forget about everything that's happened and take it one game at a time. That's what I've sensed in the locker room. I sense change. Nobody's happy about this."

When asked about the Eagles' surprisingly dreadful start, Vick said, "It's the worst. At this level, in a game of this magnitude, especially for our organization and how hard we've worked, it makes it very difficult. Now the only thing to do is to go out there and get it worked out."

Vick took some criticism for his comments following the Eagles' Week 3 loss to the Giants, when he complained that he wasn't getting the same calls as other quarterbacks. Whatever your thoughts on that (see here for ours), he's not the reason the Eagles are losing. In fact, Vick's doing his part to keep the games close. It's just that Philly's defense is a mess and the offensive line is still searching for some consistency.

"We know what works for us, our coaches know what works for us," Vick said. "It's time to just let it all go, put everything behind us, and let it all hang out."

And that means righting the ship on the road against one of the league's best teams through the first four weeks of the season.

Mike Vick and anyone else on the Eagles may want to think that "The Dream Team" thing is over with,but it's not! Every team that the Eagles will face this season will remind them about them self-proclaimming themselves as "The Dream Team".......Beleive Dat Baby!!! The Eagles should have learned from watching what happened to the Miami Heat when they did it!

Hey Vick, I wish you were over, a giant pit of rabid pit bulls that slowly jump up and take rip you to pieces.  Your a psychotic scum bag, shut your hole and be lucky your not in jail.
