On paper, the Philadelphia Eagles are "Super Bowl contenders", "the Dream Team" even a "dynasty."

On the field though, it's a different story. On the field they are a mediocre football team full of "me first" players and underachievers.

They're 3-3 and lucky to be 3-3.

They needed come-from-behind fourth-quarter victories against the dreadful Cleveland Browns and a listless Baltimore Ravens team plus a last-second missed field goal by Lawrence Tynes in order to secure those three victories.

They made Kevin Kolb and—for a quarter at least—Matt Stafford look like Hall of Fame quarterbacks.

This was supposed to be the season.

Owner Jeffrey Lurie said improvements must be made—or else.

Coach Andy Reid is on the hot seat; Sociological Reformation Experiment/Quarterback Michael Vick is playing for his job.

These factors were supposed to charge this team up, and the Eagles were supposed to stomp all over the competition en route to their first (of many, according to Vick and LeSean McCoy) Super Bowl victories.

Yet, they sit at 3-3 with the second-worst offense in football, a putrid special-teams squad and a mediocre defense.

But, who's to blame for this?

Everyone has their theories. Let's see who the Philadelphia Eagles themselves believe is/are responsible for this dismal start to the season.
