Michael Vick on “Dream Team”: “that word is dead now”

Dream Team – save that for the iconic ’92 Olympic basketball squad or the trio down in South Beach.

“The dream team … that word is dead now,” Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said. “Can’t talk dream team anymore. Maybe it put pressure on some players, maybe it didn’t, but I think just the fact that it was lingering around and people were talking about it creates a sense of pressure.

“So it’s over with. We’re just one of the teams that’s got to scratch and claw from the bottom.”

The comments Vick made Wednesday echoed those he made on Tuesday to the team’s official 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,” Vick told PhiladelphiaEagles.com.

It’s clearly apparent that Vick is getting frustrated with all the media hype, pressure, and attention pinpointing the club’s recent struggles.
