Philadelphia Eagles: From Dream Team to Dynasty?


Like many members of the Philadelphia Eagles, this past week I squeezed in some last¬† moments of relaxation before the start of training camp. For the first time ever, my laptop wasn’t opened for almost a full week. I didn’t check Google Reader for Eagles news. I was blissfully unaware of most things happening in the world.

But somehow, two bits of news still made their way to me. The first was news of Mike Vick’s autobiography, set for release in September. The other item? The quarterback’s statement in an interview with CSNPhilly’s Derrick Gunn (which you can watch below) that, “I think we have a chance to develop a dynasty.”

Does this mean that Vick is now disavowing his stance that sliding is just not his style of play, after initially saying he would learn to slide during the season?

Let’s hope so.

With all the work we know that Vick needs to do this offseason to raise his level of play, the importance of him learning to protect himself is more important than ever. And learning to slide is a critical step towards that end.

Be sure to let us know how the sliding lessons go, gentlemen.
