Sometimes I wish the Kansas City Chiefs wouldn't try to muzzle the personality of players.
Other times, I read comments like the one below from Michael Vick, and feel glad the Chiefs don't have anyone speaking out on the team like this.
"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.
"I think we have a chance to be that. I think we have a chance to develop a dynasty."
Dynasty is the new "dream team", the words Vince Young uttered last year that stuck with the team all season.
This one should stick too because, well, it's stupid. Vick didn't even complete 60 percent of his passes last season. Touchdown to interception ratio was 9:7 which is not good. He's good for a few missed games each year due to injury. Part of his game is predicated on his speed and things like speed usually don't get better when you're his age (32). He has a history of getting in trouble which then lead to suspensions (even if he has straightened up in the last couple years).
The Eagles didn't even make the playoffs last season!!!
You need to win one Super Bowl to necessitate talk about multiple Super Bowls. Giants players, for example, could be talking about a dynasty right now and people wouldn't laugh.
