    *** Official Why You Don't Annoint Yourself Thread ***

    So after the Eagles signed Asomugha, Ronnie Brown, Vince Young, etc......they started calling themselves the "Dream Team". Really?? Look at em now!!! Much like the Miami Heat winning not 1, not 2, not 3...etc championships. How'd that work out for ya LeBron? I hope the Iggles continue to fall flat on their face!

    I'm not sure the Eagles themselves were calling them the Dream Team so much as the media was doing it.

    Some of them were quoted in the Philly newspaper that this year would be a total loss if they did not win the SB. Not sure if they actually used "Dream Team" term themselves but they were pretty damn confident.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again.......until Romo is gone, Dallas will not win anything of importance. He is not a star quarterback, he's a celebrity QB.......BIG difference. But to answer your question, ya it pretty much tasted like ****!! Good thing I have Calvin Johnson on my fantasy team to help cushion the blow.

    I thought this was going to be about ISU not being ranked/not getting enough respect.

    I'm pretty sure Vince Young coined the term. Go 9ers!

    Saying that the season is basically Super Bowl or bust doesn't mean they've crowned themselves. They have a ton of talent, and with that comes pressure. Anything less than a SB title with that kind of talent IS a disappointment.

    Not when you still have to beat the defending champs just to get there. And then probably beat the Pats IF you get there.

    Unlike the Eagles it is very possible for the Heat to win a few titles. I hate the Eagles.

    I guess the Eagles are realizing a little too late that you need linebackers and an offensive line to go with the butt load of high priced free agent skill players to win. But I'll enjoy the collapse.

    Sorry but I just had to talk some **** about that game. Watched it with my best friend who is a Dallas fan. Until Denver becomes good again I'm adopting the Lions as my team. Yes CJ is a bad bad man, and the best WR IMO.

    They have to make the SB to be able to bring Lebron into the conversation.
