There's confidence and then there's downright arrogance.
It's hard to determine where Vince Young's most recent statement falls between those two distinctions.
Young, the newly minted backup quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, was asked by a reporter to describe the array of talent that the team will field this season. His choice of words?
"Dream team," the once troubled quarterback said. Young came on as a backup after spending his first five seasons in Tennessee. The former third overall pick was jettisoned from the Titans in favor of veteran Matt Hasselback.
Young's cockiness came after the Eagles announced the signing of Nnamdi Asomugha, a superstar, premier level cornerback. The corner was reportedly jockeying between the New York Jets and the Dallas Cowboys but chose the Eagles at the last minute because he thought they gave him the best chance at a Superbowl.
Joining Asomugha and Young as new talent in Philly is Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who came over from Arizona in a trade for former Eagles backup QB Kevin Kolb and Jason Babin, who came over via free agency from Tennessee.
"From Nnamdi [Asomugha] to [Dominique Rodgers-] Cromartie, to Jason [Babin] to myself, I know they are going to do some more things...It's just beautiful to see where we're trying to go," Young said.
Eagles President Joe Banner wasn't as enthused about Young's description of the team but admitted there's that kind of sentiment going around the Eagles organization.
"It's a scary term but...somebody wrote the words 'The Eagles are all in,' and that's how we look at it. We're doing anything and everything we can, we're being aggressive about it, and the expectations are high," Banner said.
The Eagles couldn't get past the first round of the playoffs last year, losing to eventual champion Green Bay Packers. The team has never won a Superbowl in its long history and hasn't won any kind of championship since 1960.
As arrogant as Young may have come across, it was nowhere near as bad as LeBron James' famous declaration that the Miami Heat would "win multiple championships" before the team ever stepped on the court together.
