For the record, I am not an Eagles fan, but this is finally a good spot for the "not-so" Dream Team against the Dolphins.  Coming off 11-days rest, the Eagles get healthy with Vick, Maclin (questionable), Rodgers-Cromartie and Asomugha back from injuries.  While hard to look past their dysfunctional nature, that kind of talent returning simply cannot be overlooked.  The Dolphins defense is average, only generating 11 turnovers on the year, with only ex-BC Lion Cameron Wake bringing consistent pressure off the edge.  The return of Vick and Maclin, complimented by the leagues 2nd ranked rusher, the versatile LeSean McCoy, will present match-up problems for the Dolphins when the Eagles spread the field - McCoy, 42 receptions, 6.6 yards per catch vs run stuffers Dansby or Burnett in space, just a straight mismatch).  On the flip side, Brandon Marshall should see a safety shadow over the top, and the Eagles ends will take away the edges to force Bush to run between the tackles (not his comfort/strength).  While the Dolphins have won 4 of 5, those games were against teams with losing records in Buffalo, KC, Washington, and last week against Oakland.  The road is a better place to be for the Eagles right now (3-3), I'll take the points here... Eagles
