Is this guy a fruitcake or what? All he does is bad mouth K.C. whenever he gets a mic on. I admit, I was an Elvis supporter when he was here but now I just wish, really bad, that we played Baltimore. Anyway, if you haven't seen it, you ought to check it out, it's guaranteed to put you in a bad mood.

I haven't heard it (no sound card at work), but I can imagine.
That pu$$y is acting like he helped the Ravens win the SB last year.
As more and more time passes, the happier I am about him leaving KC, even if it had forced KC to sign Dilfer or use Todd Collins.

He's just riding the Purple wave until he falls flat on his face in the coral...

Here is the interview almost word for word. Enjoy!
Elvis: In San Francisco, I came from that mentality that if you don't win the Super Bowl it's not a winning season so I know where the mentality is and the confidence and attitude you have to defend as the Super Bowl Champion, I know what it takes.
Reporter: Are you prepared for having the finger pointed at you over and over again?
Elvis: Sure, sure. I think Kansas City was a great opportunity for the finger being pointed at me and I learned from that, and I think having the confidence coming in here and having a positive attitude coming in here, everybody says, "well he's got to step in and be the QB of the defending Super Bowl champion", there is a positive there, you've got to see the positive and really take that challenge on.
From here he talks about the offense and how he is a master of the West Coast offense and everything is going great.
Reporter: You're making these comparisons to San Francisco, it's been a long time since you've been in San Francisco. Are you operating under the "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all" policy?
Elvis: (Elvis lets out a dorky laugh) Of Kansas City. Kansas City, I tell you what, their organization is run very, very good. It was just unfortunate that under Marty Schottenheimer when we would get into the post season and we would fall in the first game. But under Coach Schottenheimer and really under Gunther Cunningham we faced some adversity, obviously I made some mistakes there and said some things I shouldn' t have said and I think that's the maturity process you go through as a QB and that's why I feel so comfortable coming here.
Reporter: Are you already more comfortable here in Baltimore than you ever were in Kansas City?
Elvis: Oh, there's no doubt, there's no doubt. I think the difference betweent the two is the comraderie of the players, defensively and offensively. You walk into the locker room, it's night and day. You've got a guy like Shannon Sharpe and a number of guys that just comes up to you and talks to you no matter what the situation is. There's other teams where somebody will say something about you and somebody will take wrong, but here it's kind of like if you can't take the heat then you aren't part of the team, but if you can take the heat, it's great.
Reporter: When I say Trent Dilfer, what do you feel?
Elvis: I feel for him, but the number one thing I feel for him is that I'm glad in got a Super Bowl ring. I know what he went through with Tampa Bay because I went throught the same thing with Kansas City. For him to have the opportunity to win the S.B. was great for him. There's not too many people who can say they have a S.B. ring, he has one, I have one but Dan Marino doesn't have one.
Well, that's about it to the interview, as you can see our suspicions are totally confirmed, Elvis is an IDIOT!!!

Ok, after reading the recount below my only question is: What's the problem?
He's joining a SB winning team and he was with a SB winning team, thus the SF reference.
He commented on how dealt with being a lightening rod for the fans and media in KC. There's no denying that fact. He also complimented the Chiefs as an organization and took blame for his post season mistakes. Commented on our post season collapses without pointing any fingers at anyone. He also commented on how he stuck his foot in his mouth while here.
As for the comraderie of the teams, there's no denying the Chiefs have had their problems in that department in the last 5 or so years.
He even expressed sympathy for Dilfer.
Pardon me, but exactly what does the man have to do to get you people off his back? He's not our QB anymore. Everyone whipped him while he was here, deservedly sometimes. Why the continuance? This whole thread is truely sad.

Thanks for the recap.
"I think Kansas City was a great opportunity for the finger being pointed at me"
I gave him the finger a couple of times.
07-03-2001, 02:02 PM
What an ego-trippin fool.......
"There's not too many people who can say they have a S.B. ring, he has one(Dilfer), I have one but Dan Marino doesn't have one."
Somebody needs to tell him that it doesn't mean too much on his resume if he didn't play!
07-03-2001, 02:04 PM
He may have played a little throughout the season, but when the chips were down, he didn't play..
How f**king egotistical can someone be...
07-03-2001, 02:21 PM
He made himself out to be a great player and still blamed his failures on the finger pointers who CORRECTLY pointed him out as the fault. He also compared himself to Dan Marino and implied that he has a SB ring so he must be as good as Dan who never had one....
07-03-2001, 02:25 PM
I somewhat understand your point of view, but let me tell you something, there was no bigger supporter of Elvis than I was. I hated the fact that we booed him at home. However, since then I have been reformed and shown the light on the situation. What he said about himself making mistakes has to be taken with a grain of salt or you're nieve. From day one, all Elvis has done is point the finger at everyone but himself. I didn't take what he said as admitting to any failures in the playoffs, I think he was talking about when he named names to the press and his name was no where to be seen. I am not basing my disdain for Girlbac on this one interview alone, this is just one grape off the vine of sour grapes he's had since leaving. And one thing everyone, including Elvis, should remember is that we tried to keep him, it was his decision to leave, so he should shut his mouth and play the game. It's just like his "great friend" Shannon Sharpe said, "If we don't win the Super Bowl, then Elvis was a wrong decision".
"It's just like his "great friend" Shannon Sharpe said, "If we don't win the Super Bowl, then Elvis was a wrong decision"
That's a pretty vague assessment. I mean, chemistry is hard to create. That being said, it's even harder to duplicate. Think about this: What if their offense is twice as good this season but, their defense gets big headed and lazy(see 2000 Rams)? Who's to say that keeping Dilfer would've got them back to the SB.
From what I'm reading of this interview, Elvis isn't being out of line. This isn't about sour grapes. The guy was booed last year while laying on his back because he got hit by a Charger. That would be pretty hard for anyone to take, especially if you're the starting qb. I felt Elvis did a fine job last year. However, Elvis is gone now and we should just forget about him. I was always pro Elvis when he was here but now, he's gone and I don't care either way about what he says or does. I think all you anti Elvis people are the ones who are spewing sour grapes.

It's one thing if he's upset about the way he was scrutinized by us Chiefs fans, but by badmouthing an organization that stuck by him through thick and thin just shows you how two-faced and classless Elvis really is. The Chiefs will ultimately have the last laugh when Elvis falls flat on his face while we slowly but surely build a legit contender.

I have no earthly idea where some of you get your ideas?
Maybe someone would like to write down exactly what they would have prefered for Elvis to say?
i'll be waiting to read this...
07-03-2001, 04:01 PM
I don't think Elvis could say anything without it being spun by some Grbashers...I'm glad he's gone for the sake of himself and the fans here. He said the organization was good, that he made mistakes and had learned from them. He didn't say he got SF to the superbowl, but he was there and new how the mentality was when a team was trying to repeat. I just don't see how this makes him an idiot.
**** em...lets concentrate on who is here now
07-03-2001, 04:04 PM
I didn't see anything there badmouthing the organization, to be frank. He said we are a very well run organization, but he's right, the locker rooms were night and day. That is why BMore has a trophy and we've been finishing 7-9. Our locker room, in the final year of Marty and in the Dumther years, sucked. You had guys in this camp and that camp, finger pointing, coaches not telling players what their roles were, mistified players, etc. The health of our organization, while Elvis was here, was bad, in part because of Elvis and in part because of other players and coaches. Gunther's "me, me, me" coaching style didn't do anything to help. Dick Vermiel is trying to change that, and that's why players are being cut and certain guys with talent which we may have wanted to be signed were not signed in favor of other guys. He's trying to build that locker room up again. Elvis just isn't going to be a part of it. He took the easy way out, he didn't want to stick around and try to build new relationships here.
As far as the rest of the stuff, hey, if I were a BMore fan, I'd say great, he's confident. Frankly I prefer the approach Trent Green has taken, but to each his own.
Screw every team that is not the Kansas City Chiefs...
07-03-2001, 07:02 PM
I thought Girlbac's comment about confidence is laughable. I remember Marty and Gunner having to hold his hand because he lacked confidence. He final showed a spark of it last year, but then he showed his immaturity by blaming everyone around him. I'm sure TG will not blame others for his mistakes, but he will make mistakes.
07-03-2001, 07:09 PM
Some fans just can't wait to ***** about former players. Grow up! Elvis is gone, let's focus on the now.
07-03-2001, 07:13 PM
I think he should have given credit where credit is due. Elvis experienced some success while he was here. He thanked Marty. He should have thanked Carl Peterson for sticking with him. He should have thanked Rich Gannon, who gave him the best opportunity of his career so he could choke on it. If nothing else, he should have thanked Rich Gannon for helping him to mature.
As someone else said, though. Elvis Grbac is gone. Rich Gannon is gone. Let's get behind Brent Green and support our Kansas City Chiefs 100%!

Don't hold your breath Luz, you'll be waiting far too long for a rational response to your question.
Ok gang, I give up. Apparently some of you are so consumed that you'd rather dwell on the past and nitpick/spin <b>anything</b> EG says till it suits your worldview. Fine. Go for it. Myself, I'll live in the present and concentrate on the current Chiefs. I'm still a Grbacker and will watch a Raven game should one be on, but he's gone and no longer a concern for me. As another has already said, methinks the spewing of sour grapes is occuring much closer to home.
Personally I think it'll be interesting to see how long the Green honeymoon will last. I'll lay even odds that some KC 'fans' will be booing by midseason. Is it anywonder we've never developed a QB.
07-04-2001, 01:15 PM
All I can say is, glad he's gone.
07-04-2001, 01:54 PM
I don't care how many rings he ends up with he will never be a Dan Marino.
Yea he is more comfortable there. He hasn't screwed up and pointed the finger at someone else yet. Hell, he hasn't even played a game yet.
He is just saying what he needs to. The season will be the real test.
07-04-2001, 02:04 PM
Elvis isn't even qualified to lick Dan Marino's sweaty jockstrap. And he knows what it takes to win one?
07-04-2001, 02:40 PM
07-04-2001, 06:52 PM
Now that Elvis is gone everyone is seeing his true whinny self. Elvis was just a backup when he played with San Francisco, and thought he was good enough to be a started. Yeah he really proved himself worthy. Last year was his best year and he still couldnít get it done. Let him cry all he wants about Kansas City, the smart ones didnít want him here anyway.
07-05-2001, 02:53 AM
livin in the present...nuff said:D
07-05-2001, 07:11 AM
His living in the present is going to be a nightmare. He's better off living in the past and holding his beloved ring under his pillow at night.
Elvis Grbac - the only quarterback that "knows what it takes" to win the Super Bowl without ever winning a playoff game.
