Vick on dynasty comment: My teammates will tell you the same

Michael Vick isn’t backing down from the “dynasty” talk.

Vick, who raised eyebrows recently when he said he thinks the Eagles have a chance to build a dynasty with the talent they have on the roster right now, said today that he thinks the confidence he expressed is shared by his teammates, and with good reason.

“That’s just me speaking out of confidence, and I think if you ask my teammates they’ll tell you the same thing, that they feel the same way,” Vick told CSNPhilly.com. “As a quarterback that’s just how I feel. You’ve got to speak it into existence. You gotta aim to shoot for the stars, and if you miss at least you’ll be amongst them, and . . . I think that’s gotta be our mind-set. But it all starts on the practice field. It all starts right now, it all starts here and that’s going out and putting in the hard work and the effort to get there.”

But while Vick stands by the dynasty talk, he attempted to distance himself from Vince Young’s proclamation last year that the Eagles were building a “Dream Team.”

“It’s totally different from the Dream Team comment. This is a hypothetical thought,” Vick said. “When you think about it in the sense that it’s something to aim for — we can create our own dream team, so nothing against what Vince said, it’s just, this is what we can build if we have the right mind-set.”

Some might say the right mind-set isn’t talking about creating a dynasty when the Eagles haven’t even won a playoff game in the last three years. But Vick believes what he said.

    When will these morons ever shut their pie holes. Last year it was a guaranteed Super Bowl and we all know how that turned out.

    We can all see how this one will turn out as well.

    Oh good… the whole team is delusional.

  3. nokoolaidcowboy says: Jul 22, 2012 9:33 PM

    Dynasty’s are born on the field, not through talk. We’ll see…

  4. curtainclosed says: Jul 22, 2012 9:34 PM

    So much for learning from last year…Another mediocre season would be my guess.

  5. linvillegorge says: Jul 22, 2012 9:34 PM

    You should probably at least get one first before starting to talk about a dynasty. I think the most likely scenario is that Vick once again wears down through the course of the season and they flame out down the stretch.

  6. nyyjetsknicks says: Jul 22, 2012 9:34 PM

    Saying I think we can win the super bowl is fine. Saying you can be a dynasty when you missed the playoffs last year is stupid. Ask anyone with common sense, they’ll tell you the same.

    You kinda gotta win one before you can worry about dynasty talk……Just sayin

  9. professorskittles says: Jul 22, 2012 9:44 PM

    C’mon. He said his team is capable of doing great things. NOT we’re going to win multiple championships. There are many things to be outraged about, but this is not one of them.

  15. skulman7 says: Jul 22, 2012 9:51 PM

    They didn’t report what Vick said after he said they had a CHANCE to develop into a dynasty.

    “I think just getting to the postseason right now is our focus. The Super Bowl is going to come if it’s meant to happen. Some of the best teams have some of the best luck. Maybe we’ll have some of that. I think our focus needs to be one game at a time, just getting into the postseason.”

    Yeah, sounds like he’s delusional. The media is just looking for a story where there isn’t one.

    From BadNewz Kennels to BadNewz Predictions, same outcome.

  17. Little Earthquake says: Jul 22, 2012 9:52 PM

    Vick, it goes like this:

    Playoffs
    Playoff wins
    Super Bowl
    Super Bowl win
    Repeat
    Repeat again

    Okay, now you can start talking dynasty.

  18. mugatu13 says: Jul 22, 2012 9:55 PM

    While Vick was dreaming, another Lion was arrested.

    The more they talk it up, the more motivated their opponents. So keep talking. Please.

    While I agree that they should win one before using the D word, the Eagles have almost NEVER faded down the stretch under Andy Reid. They’re one of the strongest December teams year in and year out. Its the months of October and November that seem to give them issues, usually November.

  22. thraiderskin says: Jul 22, 2012 10:12 PM

    Vick is so stupid… shut up and make it through a season, let alone a dynasty’s worth.

  23. dexter191 says: Jul 22, 2012 10:19 PM

    It’s just sweeter when you say it before you do it…. Vick has to believe it, even if nobody else in Philly does.

  24. dirtybirds233 says: Jul 22, 2012 10:21 PM

    Better have a good backup…Vicks never made it through an entire season

  25. bluefan204 says: Jul 22, 2012 10:29 PM

    I thought dynasties involved actually winning games, not talking about winning games…

  26. nerdyturdy says: Jul 22, 2012 10:38 PM

    Well said, Vick. Set the bar high and try to reach it. If you set the bar low you might just reach it and be mediocre.

  27. mj1818 says: Jul 22, 2012 10:42 PM

    When are these guys going to learn to shut up and let their play do the talking? Andy Reid needs to step up and tell them to keep their mouths shut. Of course the are Philadelphia and asking anyone from there to be quiet is a difficult task..

    I think he’s referring to a not-making-the-playoffs dynasty.

  31. jh500 says: Jul 22, 2012 11:04 PM

    Vick came closer to beating the eventual super bowl champion the packers than any other team did in the playoffs, and that was with Akers missing two field goals (6 points). They lost by 5. I am guaranteeing eagles win the super bowl this season!

  32. aphillyated26 says: Jul 22, 2012 11:06 PM

    Why don’t you get behind your team!!!! How many times Mcnabb let us down by saying nothing???? I just watched the pats/eagles super bowl yesterday and when i say Mcnabb was horrible, he was beyond horrible! WE ARE THE EAGLES!!!!! When has taking the “under the radar” route approach been our memo???? Philly has never been soft nor will we ever be! You “fans” are looking for the easy road, we have had that road since the 4 consecutive nfc championships! Lets go hard now, lets talk noise and bring pain, lets follow our qb and team into the fire of hell and drag satin out “WIT” a bitch slap for extra……All in all lets be EAGLES fans!

  33. duncanthecat says: Jul 22, 2012 11:42 PM

    This guy is on the down side of this career, and he is talking dynasty?

    If that little running back blows a knee they won’t even make the playoffs.

  34. 1phd says: Jul 22, 2012 11:59 PM

    Last year it was the “Dream Team,” this year it’s the “Dynasty.” When it comes to talking trash in Philly they go together like klingons and dingleberries.

  35. adm350 says: Jul 23, 2012 12:14 AM

    Lebron said it. Haters hated. I haven’t heard anything lately…..hmm. Let’s see what happens. If you don’t think you can win….then why play?? Go birds

    Dude your team has never won a single Super Bowl! Their entire history fades out. Lol

  37. laserw says: Jul 23, 2012 12:44 AM

    Dynasty? With what?

    A coach that barely kept his team together last year that is a clogged artery away from dropping dead on the sidelines at any time.

    With a QB that is not effective, can’t win big games, has now had the game plan exposed on how to beat him?

    With a defense that is all hot air?

    With a running game that is one gay slur after another?

    The Philthydelphia Iggles are truly lucky to have reached the level of mediocrity they did last year. There is no evidence they have any chemistry yet and their players are some of the laziest, underachievers outside of Cincinnati.

  38. bigbluecrew420 says: Jul 23, 2012 1:29 AM

    Well you’d better get on that. The giants just won 2 and there not getting any
    dynasty talk. At Vicks age he is going to have to win the SB every year till he retires to be considered a dynasty.

  39. jfinn5 says: Jul 23, 2012 1:40 AM

    The Eagles SB trophy case will remain empty.

  40. mazenblue says: Jul 23, 2012 1:54 AM

    Sorry Vick, you will never be the QB that McNabb was in Philly.

    He thought it said playbook, but it said, ‘comicbook’.

  45. stan97 says: Jul 23, 2012 4:04 AM

    lol – now he’s doubling down on his original foolish statement.

    Lord, help us all…

    As an Eagles fan, all I can do is shake my head and await the inevitable meltdown.

  46. fballgod17 says: Jul 23, 2012 4:29 AM

    Wow, I must say , you guys can can thumbs down if you like but I like the eagles mindset. Let’s not forget the packers set their sights on a championship the year before they won also even had the frame for “championship team” photo in their meeting room to remind them of the ultimate goal. Or don’t forget the Patriots ever year proclaim its super bowl or bust Belicheck would have it no other way. what about the giants that whole team talked and predicted guess what they backed it up.
    If Vick believes that a Dynasty is brewing in Philly he has to commit to the vigorous work first and lead by example. From his words and the work he’s done this off season sounds like he’s buying in the team must follow.
    New defensive coordinator , new o line coach n d line coach no off season tons of new players there’s room to be optimistic in Philly just saying. And that “little running back” is a beast

  47. ham1 says: Jul 23, 2012 5:18 AM

    Ha Ha , thats right paint a big target on your back big mouth. Flaunt it in front of everybody.
    You never make it through a season Vickey.

  48. greenbloodking says: Jul 23, 2012 5:31 AM

    Any Eagles fan that cringes at what Mike Vick said or thinks he should take the statement back is just scared. Why in the hell would you want our QB to keep his head down and speak mediocrity? I can see if he came out saying we were going to win it all and beat every team, but all he said was the talent on this team right now has the potential to become a dynasty. That can be said of a bunch of teams and as a true Eagles fan that has pride and excitement for my team, I wouldn’t want my QB or any other player or member of this organization to think or speak otherwise. If confidence is high then let it be known. Be careful of over-confidence of course, but hold your head high and speak positivity and motivation. Or you could just go out there and say “We had a bad season and we just want to bounce back this year and get back to playing Eagles football every snap.” which really gives us a great hope for the future…smh. Take your heads out of the sand Eagles fans. We are a strong confident team and fan base. Don’t let the media hype up fear!!! The only fear should be from the visitors bench!!! #GOGREEN!!!!

    After the Dream Team comments from last year , and we all see how that turned out , now youre going to be a dynasty . Michael Vick , and his team mates need to shut their mouths and simply play football . In addition , someone needs to explain to Vick , exactly what a dynasty is . A dynasty is multiple championships in a short period of time . The Eagles , for all their talent cant even make the playoffs . Bottom line , stop talking Vick , you look dumber each time you open your mouth .

  50. sevensgottago says: Jul 23, 2012 6:14 AM

    Never going to get anywhere with Vick taking snaps.
    Epic fail as Qb!

  51. phillyphan83 says: Jul 23, 2012 6:45 AM

    Wow, I still can’t believe how many people can’t differentiate between past and future and continually take things out of context. You all need grammar lessons; and that goes for you too, MDS. His comment, in no way shape or form, had ANYTHING to do with the past. Notice the use of the words build and create, not built and created. Pathetic.

    Because your teammates are just as stupid as you Mike. I can’t wait to see you get absolutely crushed this year and then complain to the officials Like a little baby. You are pathetic.

  54. bigbluenationdb says: Jul 23, 2012 7:07 AM

    Vick is an idiot. He has proven he is no better then an average NFL QB who has a unique ability to make a highlight play by running around. It takes an elite NFL QB to build a dynasty not one at the age of 32 that still can’t read a defense.

  55. moagecu says: Jul 23, 2012 7:27 AM

    Dynasty don’t have Quarterbacks who have only played one full season in his career.

    ———————————————————
    That is where you are wrong there.When Vince came in he said that we were a Dream Team but Vick never said that the Eagles were a Dynasty he said POTENTIAL Dynasty.So if you would look up potential in the dictionary it says having or showing the capacity to develop into something in the future.So Vick was referring that in the future this team can be a dynasty.So he is not directing that this season Eagles will automatically be a dynasty team.

    Vick gonna miss 5-6 games, gonna be extremely interesting to watch them crash and burn

    The Eagles have never won jack & they aren’t gonna start now…. Dynasty? Why don’t they win one first.

    Another stupid comment by a stupid athlete. Win a super bowl a couple of times then come back and you won’t sound so ridiculous.

    No one ever argued he was the brightest bulb in the bunch.

  63. texline1 says: Jul 29, 2012 7:14 AM

    It seems a few of you are having trouble with the difference between the words confidence and arrogance. Let me help you out. Confidence is knowing you are good. Arrogance is telling everybody else about it.
