Before last year's team finished a disappointing 8-8, the Philadelphia Eagles were one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl.

Nothing has changed those high expectations going into the 2012 season as quarterback Michael Vick even had loftier expectations for his team.

“When I look at our football team and what we have on paper, I think about when I was growing up and the great San Francisco 49er teams, the great Green Bay Packer teams, and the great Dallas Cowboy teams, how they just positioned themselves to compete and be one of the best teams out there,” Vick said to Comcast SportsNet Philly. “I think we have a chance to be that. I think we have a chance to develop a dynasty.”

Since signing with the Eagles in 2009, Vick is 15-9 as a starter with 40 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.  Vick completed 59.8 percent of his passes with 18 touchdowns and 14 picks last season.

“We’re in a special place right now," Vick said. " We believe that we have a lot to accomplish, and we believe we can do it. and I think that's where it all starts, with your faith.”
