Michael Vick said in July that he thinks his Philadelphia Eagles "have a chance to develop a dynasty."

Giants quarterback Eli Manning, despite bringing New York two Super Bowls in the past five years, said on Wednesday that even his G-men aren't deserving of this kind of consideration.

When asked by NFL AM whether the Giants are a dynasty, Manning said the Giants  "have potential to be a playoff team," but there's still a lot of work to be done:

“No, no, we are not,” Manning said. “We had a little break and the two years prior to last year we didn’t make the playoffs. We have work to do. [W]e have good players on this team. We have potential to be a playoff team and make a run once we get into the playoffs. It’s a matter of going out there and proving that, and everybody playing to their level of play."
