Michael Vick On The Bills And The Dream Team Moniker

I wanted to direct you to a piece written by Andrew Sharp over on about this whole "Dream Team" nonsense. It's nice that someone outside of Philadelphia realizes that it's been overblown from the start and mostly just a media creation. For his part, Michael Vick declared this week that the moniker is dead.

I think the ‘dream team,' that word is dead now. I mean, [we] can't talk dream team anymore. And 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 I think it's over with now [and] we're one of the teams that has to scratch and kick from the bottom now and try to figure out how we're going to get ourselves back to a position where we can compete with the best teams in this league. And like I said, we're a team gunning like everybody else now."

Moving on to this weekend, there's one clear part of the game that Vick says they need to be better in against the Bills.

"Red zone, red zone for the offense and the defense. I think, minus some of the turnovers, minus some of the penalties, the defense tightening up a little bit in the red zone, things will be a lot easier and will be a lot better. You know, on offense we struggle in the red zone and on defense we struggle in the red zone and we just have to get better in those areas, and if you don't you'll be at the bottom of the totem pole, and right now we're in that position. So like I said, we're confident that we can change it, though, and that's the good thing about it."
