Darnell Dockett Calls Philadelphia Eagles 'Best Team In The NFL'

The Arizona Cardinals have had to overcome two tough teams already to begin their season with an undefeated record of 2-0. By the skin of their teeth, they managed to get by the Seahawks at home and Tom Brady's Patriots in Gillette Stadium.

Now, on Sunday, they will host the always entertaining Philadelphia Eagles. The self-proclaimed 'dream team' is one of the only team remaining (along with Arizona) that remains undefeated through their first two games. For the Eagles, they beat the Ravens and Browns, each by one point.

Despite having their up and downs, Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett still has a lot of respect for Philadelphia. In fact, he went as far as to say they are the best team in the NFL.

Here is the tweet from Dockett:

Correct me if I am wrong, but haven't the Eagles given up nine turnovers in the first two games? Did they not finish last season with an 8-8 record after collecting the most star studded free agents of the 2011 off-season?

When your team is only able to beat the Browns, led by rookie Brandon Weeden (who throw four interceptions in his first NFL start), there may be some issues. Then again, Dockett is the one watching the film and he knows better than we do. He recognizes the explosive ability of Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. The unfortunate thing for them is, Jackson and Maclin are both questionable to play on Sunday.

While I respect Dockett's take, I think he may be a little generous in his assessment of the Eagles. Not only do I not think Philadelphia is the best team in the league, but I don't even believe they are the best in the NFC or their division.

I guess we will find out on Sunday...
