After falling to 1-4 with a 31-24 loss to the Buffalo Bills Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles are grasping for straws when it comes to a quick fix for their already-broken season.

The Eagles reportedly offered a defensive consultant gig to former Jets and Browns coach Eric Mangini, hoping the defensive mastermind could tinker with their lackluster stop unit. Mangini allegedly turned Philadelphia down.

The Eagles were supposed to be the NFL’s “Dream Team”, after signing a slew of free agents and trading for some big-name talents. But, after just five weeks, it’s safe to say Philly has been a disappointment.

However, as bad as the Eagles have been, they might not even be the biggest disappointment in the City of Brotherly Love.

Baseball’s Phillies were supposed to ride their stellar pitching staff all the way to the World Series this year. But instead, their bats went ice cold versus St. Louis and provided nothing in the way of support for Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and the rest of the gang.

Philadelphia’s loaded rosters, on paper at least, seemed to be in the same vein as the Miami Heat’s moves to ink three of the best players in the NBA two summers ago.

We all know how that came out. LeBron, Wade and Bosh lost to the Mavericks in the NBA Finals.

So, with the Eagles dogged on the road in Washington this week, the Phillies licking their wounds (and surgically-repaired Achilles) this winter, and the Heat perhaps having to wait until November or December to start their road to redemption, which so-called “Dream Team” is the most disappointing?

Oooooo, I know this game!  I've been playing it for years but with Toronto franchises... Maple Leafs, Blue Jays, and Raptors.

I feel your pain.

(I'd have to go with the Eagles, as I do not watch baseball or basketball)

I love all three as I faded both the Heat and the Phillies quite a bit and have done the same with the Eagles so far  


Always great to fade the teams that ESPN is currently blowing

personally i enjoy watching underdogs win. makes sports entertaining to me. if your a yankee fan and your born and raised there, been your team all your life, then thats cool. but casual sports fans that cheer for huge favourites just cuz. well your a loser i think.
