It appears the term “dynasty” is becoming this year’s “elite quarterback” with both the Eagles and Giants irrationally talking about building a dynasty before either team has reported to training camp.
First, New York’s Justin Tuck talked about the Giants becoming a dynasty after their Super Bowl ring ceremony in May.
Then, Philadelphia’s Michael Vick told local media on Tuesday that the Eagles could build a dynasty with their talent base.
Not to be outdone, Giants offensive linemen Chris Snee told The Daily Review that he is ready for New York to build a dynasty of its own and, in the process win 10 Super Bowls:
“You look at the history and the odds of winning back-to-back is against us.
“But, the goal is to win back-to-back. It might be a lofty goal, but that is what we expect. I have eight more fingers left on my hands for rings.”
That’s right. Snee, the son-in-law of Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, is also having delusions of grandeur by striving for 10 rings.
Winning 10 rings would put him in rarified air considering no NFL player has more than Charles Haley’s five.
Should Snee reach his goal, it would put him near the hallowed ground of the great winners in American sports history:
Bill Russell is the proud owner of 11 championship rings with the NBA’s Boston Celtics.
Sorry Chris. Not happening.
