Kansas City Chiefs LB Mike Vrabel Will Do What It Takes To Win

Earlier this season we saw a pair of players -- Cleveland Browns C Alex Mack and San Francisco 49ers RT Anthony Davis -- accuse Kansas City Chiefs DE Shaun Smith of grabbing them below the belt.

I think the reaction from Chiefs fans was something along the lines of, 'Hey, whatever helps you win.' I'm in the same boat -- it's only cheating if you get caught.

A story in Deadspin this week would suggest that LB Mike Vrabel subscribes to that line of thinking.

Here's an excerpt from a book by Anthony Gargano -- NFL Unplugged: The Brutal, Brilliant World of Professional Football -- as former Eagles LB Ike Reese explains trying to recover a fumble during a punt return against the Patriots.

"Mike Vrabel grabbed my sac," Reese said. "We're all scrambling for the ball and Mike Vrabel had my nuts so hard I was screaming. I didn't even have the ball. He had my shit in his hands and he's squeezing. We don't wear cups. So I'm dying. Everything is fair game. The pile clears and I see him — now Mike, he's an Ohio guy, and I played against him at Ohio State when I was at Michigan State — and he's smiling and shit at me. I turned to him and said, ‘You fuckin' asshole.'"

Check out the full excerpt over at Deadspin and you can find quite a few other stories like this.
