\n\t Pierce’s pick seems to go against the grain of most people thinking the Chiefs will be the team most likely to miss the playoff this season after making it last season.
The problem with taking the Chiefs out means you have to put somebody in and the AFC does not look like it is going to be a very good conference in 2014.
His opinion was echoed on Tuesday by former Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce.
In an interview with the Tampa Tribune, Dungy said, "I wouldn't have taken him.

Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it. things will happen." IYER: Not Sam, not Vick: Idea of NFL 'distractions' overblown Pierce supported that position and backed Dungy on Tuesday while appearing on ESPN Radio's "Mike and Mike" "I thought Tony Dungy did a great job because he was honest," Pierce, who currently works for ESPN, said.
"I think most people in this situation have been giving a politically correct answer and a lot of guys feel totally different than what they're saying on camera, in front of reporters. I would have to say if Michael Sam was a teammate and I was still playing and we were here in New York City and I was playing for the Giants, it would be a distraction and I would not want to have to deal with that every day with the amount of media coverage that it's getting. As long as we play on the football field together and do something about the team and not have to talk about that individual and what he believes in every day I can live with that, but for this fact, you have to talk about it every single day after every practice, and I think it is a distraction." When pressed on why Sam is perceived as a distraction to great to suffer while a player like Michael Vick was actively supported by Dungy, Pierce chalked it up to individual opinions that must be respected.
"It's not about that player or about what that player stands for. And I think it's no different than when a guy comes in, he has a different race, different religion or three or four wives or eight baby mamas. "I think certain individuals have different beliefs and you have to respect those comments by those individuals," Pierce said.
