Vance Walker Impressed By Kansas City Chiefs Locker Room


John Dorsey and Andy Reid have made it a point to build a quality locker room in addition to a quality football team. If the comments of Vance Walker are to be believed, Dorsey and Reid are well on their way to accomplishing their goal.

The Kansas City Star’s Terez A. Paylor wrote a piece on Walker today for the paper and the quotes in the article lean towards Walker being impressed by what Kansas City has built.

From the article:

“You know, I’ve been in locker rooms … but I feel like they actually care about people here and say ‘Hey dude, how are you doing,’ ” Walker said. “It’s never really been like that where I’ve come from. I’ve had good friends on teams, but for the entire locker room to be like that, that’s a great thing.”

It is difficult to quantify the importance of chemistry on a team. While it is not reason why great teams win, it would be foolish to discount it as a reason why great teams reach their potential.

At the very least it would seem the Chiefs have built something to where the culture in the locker room isn’t going to be what prevents the Chiefs from reaching their goals. Whether or not Walker and his teammates have the talent to get there is the real question – if not the only question. And that’s a nice situation to be in.

      Hey Bert I swore I would never comment in this form again given the dynamic duo which prevents me from enjoying these forms.

      Thanks to you and some others who support Alex. You and Suzi keep up the work. If ever want good balanced blog I am over at AP now so take care and keep up the fight.

        Thank you. Suzi does outstanding work supporting Alex Smith and the Chiefs. Her recent post showing the YouTube scrambling of Smith was excellent.

          I agree. I have no problem with different views but to be sooo blind with hate for a guy that plays with pure heart and guts gets to old and got to the point where I don’t enjoy commenting on here anymore.

          Those two who shall not be named is just pure hate inspired and I think your right about them having a app or something given that is the only time I see them

        I would hate to feel like I couldn’t post on a forum because I didn’t like the company…they have an opinion too, even if it is foolish and in most cases baseless.
