I'm Having a Thought

If, and this is a large if, the Eagles win the Super Bowl, I don't want to hear a damn thing about this being about Michael Vick. People are already talking about how Vick is some kind of total change of everything. Which he is. But he's not a trick that will somehow be the only reason it happened. First of all, we all know that he's going to be some kind of part of some kind of post-Wildcat offense. Yes, we're post-Wildcat. But, back to the point, Vick is neither good enough on his own nor so particularly unique as to single-handedly bring a title to this--or any--team.
I am sick and tired of all of this spectacularization of single players. This is a TEAM SPORT. None of these players can do it alone. Peyton. Tom. Kurt. Big Ben. Eli. And they all have rings. Think about all the rest of the people on those teams. So let's just shut up about Vick altogether. And Favre too. I don't want to have to talk about either of those two until the postseason.
