It didn’t take long for Giants safety Kenny Phillips to regret the comments he made with teammate Antrel Rolle when comparing his coach Tom Coughlin to Jets coach Rex Ryan.
“I was not trying to throw the Giants organization under the bus,” Phillips told the New York Daily News. “I was not trying to compare Coach Coughlin to Rex Ryan. The Giants have been great to me. That was just taken the wrong way.”
Rolle’s words towards Coughlin were a lot more pointed.
“I understand what [Coughlin] is trying to do. But he has to understand it’s 2011,” Rolle said. “Things have changed.”
Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that a number of Giants players were upset withe Rolle’s words, including captain Justin Tuck.
“I haven’t talked to him yet, but it is on my agenda to call Antrel,” Tuck said. “When I do, I will make a statement.”
