    Vick and the Eagles entered the game losers of two straight. A third-straight loss would mark the first time since the final weeks of the 2006 season that Vick (who was with Atlanta then) had lost three-straight starts.

    In NFC East news not directly concerning the Dallas Cowboys this week, things aren’t exactly going as planned in Philadelphia. The Eagles are 1-3, and dead last in their division. The Redskins and Giants, at 3-1 each, are tied for first; your Cowboys are, fittingly, right in the middle of the pack at 2-2.

    Anywho, Michael Vick is tired of the idea that the Eagles are, as backup quarterback Vince Young called them prior to the season, a sort of “dream team.” A 1-3 start, as we well know in Dallas, will do that sometimes.

    The dream team thing is over,” Vick told the team’s official website recently. “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.”

    Presumptuous preseason nicknames aside, Vick seems almost in disbelief when discussing the team’s 1-3 record, going into a week five match-up with the surprisingly good Buffalo Bills.

    “It’s the worst,” Vick said. “At this level, in a game of this magnitude, especially for our organization and how hard we’ve worked, it makes it very difficult. Now the only thing to do is to go out there and get it worked out.”
