The Eagles Super Team
Philly fans should have seen a disaster coming after they heard the words ‘dream team.’ In 2011, the Eagles added a host of experienced, high-priced veterans to their roster. They went rampant signing free agents. Even though most franchises know this isn’t a good idea, they didn’t care (via Bleacher Report).
The Eagles discovered this the hard way after they had a nightmare season. Vince Young went down as one of the year’s biggest busts. But he wasn’t the only disappointment because Steve Smith didn’t recover well from a knee injury. Other players were major letdowns too as they showed the ‘super team’ philosophy was once again too good to be true.
