Vince Young has received some backlash from his “Dream Team” comment, as many felt it was to early to label this newly assembled group of players anything other then “a work in progress.”
But no one has come down on him harder then Green Bay Packers Tight End Jermichael Finley, who had this to say when asked about Young’s comment.
“That’s just talk. That’s on Paper. Vince Young is a back up. I don’t think he should be doing to much talking,” said Finley to WSSP in Milwaukee. “I ain’t worrying about all that. Like I said, you all can talk about the Eagles and the Saints all you want, that will come to a halt, I guarantee you.”
Finley said what a lot of players around the NFL were likely thinking when they heard the comments, but for him to come out and blast Young like that was surprising. Once a star player at Texas and for some time in Tennessee, Finley really put Young in his place and served up a cold reminder of what he is now- a backup.
As for Finley’s “guarantee” that all the Eagles talk will come to a halt, he very well could be right. On paper, the Eagles and the Packers are equally as talented. The argument could even be made that the Eagles are more talented on paper. But on the field, the Eagles still have a long way to go.
Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie agreed with Finley in his ‘”State of the Union” address, when he said that the Packers are the “Dream Team.”
It will be interesting to see if Michael Vick has a comeback for this. He responded when Rob Ryan of the Cowboys said something about the team.
Finley’s comment should only add to the excitement when these two teams meet up this season- in the playoffs.
