BLOG: Can The Eagles Fly Above The 'Dream Team' Hype?

By Lesley Van Arsdall

I'm a little afraid of all the Eagles "Dream Team" hype.

Right now the only thing the team has technically won is bragging rights... and of course the free agency sweepstakes, which saw the team acquire some of the best players available, highlighted by Nnamdi Asomugha, one of the league's top, if not best cornerbacks.

So many fans are chanting "Super Bowl" even before the first pre-season game has been played. (Granted the media also contributes to all the hype.)

The Eagles now have to live up to the hype and win something... other than the great offseason.

They have all the tools to be a great team. I just hope they can overcome the hype and prove it on the field.
