Every NFL player should have learned two years ago that it isn’t smart to refer to your team as a “dream team” after Vince Young claimed the Eagles were such.
Arthur Jones of the Baltimore Ravens clearly doesn’t agree with me. After the Ravens signed Elvis Dumervil today, Jones told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun that they’re like a “dream team in the making.”
Arthur Jones on Elvis Dumervil addition: 'That's awesome. It's like a dream team in the making. I can't wait until we all get together.'

I hope Mr. Jones realizes that his team has two glaring holes at the safety position as well as at wide receiver and left tackle now that Anquan Boldin, Ed Reed, Bernard Pollard, and Bryant McKinnie at no longer on the team.
Of course you can also bring up the losses of Ray Lewis, Dannell Ellerbe, and Paul Kruger, but I believe Dumervil’s arrival negates those departures.
