Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders made some comments that could give fans some Vince Young flashbacks.
Miles Sanders’ comments shouldn’t make Philadelphia Eagles fans clutch their pearls because they remind them of a darker time, but how eerily similar they are is wild.
As a fourth-year pro, this upcoming season is a big one for him. Sanders is not only trying to impress the Eagles this year for another contract, but he is also fighting hard for a Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
While he seems like a great player for the Eagles to invest in, some of his comments during his CBS Sports could trigger Philly fans.
This interview with Sanders touched on everything from his upcoming football camp, his mom, and how much he loves Philly. But while the overall interview was pleasant and it seemed like the Eagles have someone that genuinely cares about the community, one quote stood out.
Miles Sanders believes the Eagles are a dream team, which could be triggering.
Sanders is not Vince Young with his comments, but it may give some PTSD vibes to those die heart Eagles fans.
When Sanders answered a question about DeVonta Smith, A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert joining the offense, his response could cause some heart palpitations. However, his situation compared to Young’s is different.
“We all feel like we’re on an all-star team, so we feel great,” Sanders said in an interview with CBS Sports. “We feel unstoppable, I’m not gonna lie. The vibes are great, always have been…”
This Eagles team isn’t where it was when Young made his infamous ‘dream team’ comment. It’s hard to knock a young guy like Sanders because he works hard on improving the city of Philadelphia and the Eagles.
History won’t repeat itself with this young star because the Eagles have far too much talent.
An “all-star team” could turn into something Philly fans could grow to love hearing, even though that 8-8 and missed playoff situation is still pretty haunting for fans given how disappointing it was.
Sanders won’t be a bust, nor will the likes of the other studs that Philadelphia added to its roster.
