It’s difficult to ignore the fact that there is one NFL team on everyone’s lips at the moment.

After splashing the cash to grab some of the most sought after players in the business, the Philadelphia Eagles have already been coined the "Dream Team."

The Eagles swooped in for quarterback Vince Young, running back Ronnie Brown, defensive end Jason Babin and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in an epic week of deals.
