Philadelphia Eagles: Timeline to a Disaster

The Dream Team. All those high-profile Pro Bowl free agent signings. The chips are all in. All of that chest thumping. The season win predictions by sportstalk radio personalities and their callers running down the Philadelphia Eagles' 2011 schedule during August: 11-5; 12-4, 13-3, 14-2!

The offense is stacked with weapons. The defense has three of the best cornerbacks in the game and a front four that can dominate.

The only team standing in the Eagles' path to their first ever Super Bowl victory were the Green Bay Packers...and the Eagles were just one play away from eliminating them in the playoffs last year!

Ah, and then the crushing reality that has become the 2011 season.
