Finley: Vince Young shouldn't be talking

I get the feeling that every Eagles' opponent is going to be asked about Vince Young's "Dream Team" mention at one point or another this season.

I get the feeling that every Eagles' opponent is going to be asked about Vince Young's "Dream Team" mention at one point or another this season.

The Birds don't have the Packers on their schedule, but Green Bay of course ended the Eagles' season and beat them twice in 2010.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie proclaimed last week that the Packers are the actual Dream Team since they won the Super Bowl, but apparently word has not gotten back to Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley.

During a radio interview with WSSP in Milwaukee, Finley was asked why no one is talking about the Packers.

"I ain’t worrying about all that," he said, per sportsradiointerviews.com. "Like I said, all that talk with the Eagles and the Saints if you want, that will come to a halt I guarantee you."

And what did he think, specifically, of Young's comments?

"Ah man, that’s just talk. That’s on paper," Finley said. "VY is a backup, I don’t think he should be doing too much talking. But at the same time, that’s just on paper."

Bodog.com has the Packers' over/under for wins at 11.5. The Eagles' number is 10.5

Bodog also has Green Bay at 7/1 to win the Super Bowl. The Eagles are 8/1.

And just yesterday, ESPN.com released its power rankings, with the Packers at No. 1 and the Eagles at No. 3.

So while the Birds have grabbed a lot of headlines, Green Bay is still considered the favorite by most accounts, and rightfully so since they are the defending champs.

Earlier Tuesday, I wrote an in-depth piece about what DeSean Jackson is worth.
