Poor Jeffrey Lurie. He waited most of 16 years for a team as widely praised as the one he has now ... and he is reluctant to join the party.

 “It wasn't one of our best performances,” Lurie said after the Eagles' 31-13 victory Sunday in St. Louis. “Nooooooo. It was an up and down performance. It started with some adversity. We came back. And we can do a lot better --- a lot better.

It was not one of our best performances.”

Actually ... it was.

Michael Vick looked like an MVP candidate. DeSean Jackson looked like someone who deserves a new contract. LeSean McCoy looked like a Pro Bowl back. Juan Castillo's defense didn't allow a touchdown in the final 57 minutes.

But the Eagles' policy is to brace against any "Dream Team" designations.

Trouble for them is, they are going to have to brace for plenty. For they showed Sunday that, yes, they are ghat good.

Check out my column from St. Louis on DeSean Jackson and my story on Lurie in the Daily Times Monday and on
