"I know he knows exactly what type of player I am, and what I like, what I don't like," Vick told NFL Media's Deion Sanders in an interview that aired Thursday night on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access Kickoff" before the Kansas City Chiefs play the Philadelphia Eagles.

"Because every team we ever played, and he had a concern, he always knew what they was gonna do. And 90 percent of the time, he was right.

"So I think right now, I got the edge because I pretty much know how they might try to play me tomorrow."

That's an interesting way to look at it. We see it a little differently. The Chiefs have a very talented defense and some creative blitzes.

Reid knows just what type of pressure packages could give Vick and the Eagles' offense trouble.
