Kenny Phillips: I’ll learn to hate the Giants

Getty Images

The New York Giants are the only team Kenny Phillips has played for in his five-year NFL career. But Phillips is a Philadelphia Eagle now, and he knows what Philly fans want to hear.

That’s why, Phillips said, even though it will be difficult at first, he’ll learn to hate the Giants, as an Eagle should.

“It’s weird. It’s definitely weird. But at this point I can’t say I hate the Giants. When I was with the Giants I kind of disliked the Eagles. But I can’t just say right now I hate the Giants. I guess I’ll have to learn to hate them,” Phillips said.

Phillips has already learned to love Eagles coach Chip Kelly, whom Phillips said he’s excited to play for.

“Once I got here and just speaking to the coaching staff and speaking to Chip, I can honestly say I feel at home,” Phillips said. “The Giants is a great organization. But I’m really happy to be here right now just surrounded by some great people and great players. I never thought I’d be sitting here today as a Philadelphia Eagle.”

And Phillips never thought he’d hate the Giants. But he’s ready to learn.

  1. Really Kenny? Come on dude, The Giants gave you your start and you played 5 years for them. In this day in age it’s an eternity to spend with one team, have some respect and class.

  2. I live in Atlanta but I’m a Saints fan I’ve learned to hate the Falcons and i also learned to hate the Cowboys when I lived in Dallas

  3. What does he mean he “kinda disliked the Eagles”??? Unacceptable. Send him out on a rail!!!!

    Funny thing (and no not ha-ha funny) is there are actually fans who’s feel that way when new players come in

  4. He won’t be able to get his hand up fast enough to pick off passes with that super bowl ring on it

  5. He’s a pro now. He will love the team who is currently paying him money and hate whoever isn’t.

  6. Keep telling yourself that fool they were the best of times now its the worst of times !

  7. All he has to do is put a picture of the toothless cracker who is on TV with Kelly every morning in his bedroom and that will do it.

  8. You know what really helps people to hate the Giants? Having their obnoxious co-owner, John Mara, take $36 million away from your favorite team for no good reason. I didn’t hate the Giants before this happened but now I want them to lose every game.

  9. Wait A year,he’ll be begging to come back,especially with no shot to win it all..in ny with Eli you always have a shot at a ring..

  10. I’ve been to a bunch of stadiums and I would have to say Giant fans are some of the least obnoxious. They’re actually kind of calm; probably one of the reasons they aren’t a good home team. And forget about it if it’s a Sunday or Monday night game, half the stadium will be filled with fans of the other team. I guess we get the rep since the team has won 2 SuperBowls recently. Ah well I’ll take the 2 rings and the bad rep.

  11. Great player. Good luck in that 2nd rate city.

    ps

    Stay out of Marvin Harrison’s bar or BYOG

  12. he can hate the giants all he wants but he’ll be doing from the sidelines in street when hes always injured. and im sure he wont the team that got him 2 superbowl rings.

  13. he can hate the giants all he wants but he’ll be doing from the sidelines in street when hes always injured. and im sure he wont hate
    the team that got him 2 superbowl rings.

  14. No worries Kenny. Like rossie, you too have left on a 1 year sabbatical with a scrub team. We’ll welcome you back in 2014 once you see the great winning team you’ve left.

  15. he can hate the giants all he wants but he’ll be doing from the sidelines in street clothes cuz hes always injured. and im sure he wont hate
    the team that got him 2 superbowl rings.

  16. Once a Giant, always a Giant.

    Former safety Greg Jackson went to the Eagles after winning a Super Bowl with us (NYG)…23 years later, I think of him as a Giant.

    23 years from now, I’ll look back at 2011 at watch Kenny bat that ball down against the Patriots in the end zone on the final play.

    Thanks for the memories, Kenny.

    Once a Giant, always a Giant.

  17. The eagles are winning FA again….Its enough to make you wonder how much of the problem was Reid and how much of the problem remains. As soon as Reid left he got himself a real QB andthe Eagles kept the same joke as before. So…who’s fault was the recent past for the Eagles. Guess we’ll see soon enough.

  18. He’ll have much more hate for Philly once he hears the drunken stupidity from their overconfident, delusional fanbase. He’ll regret his decision

  19. Phili breeds envy and hate. Worst fans in the nfl.
    It must suck being the only team with out a Lombardi in a division where the others have 3-5 trophies each.
    They don’t deserve it.

  20. Oh Kenny. You were a long shot as a first round pick, and the Giants took that chance on you. You loved us that day. You loved us when you held our Lombardi trophy. You’re mad because the organization that fathered you KNOWS you’ll never be the player you were supposed to be. After all, every Giant senior scout made the decision to only offer you a one year contract, because your knee is that of an 80 year old.. Microfracture surgery is terminal for any athlete.

    Now, Gilbride is going to make sure you are embarrassed two Sundays a year. You CANNOT cover our WRs, and you know it. Go ahead, backup some more so you don’t get beat deep – and Victor is going to sit underneath and move the chains all day long.

    Cruuuuuuuuuz – YOU KILLED KENNY!!!

    Once you go Burgundy and Gold, you never go back.
    ===============================

    … to the Super Bowl

  22. Meh, I can dig it, Hard to hate someone you beat most of the time. .800 win % the last ten games (including playoffs). Just maintain the Dallas hate and keep that knee together and you’ll be fine.

  23. Why are New York fans obnoxious? Because when we insult you we use original up to date relevant insults. You bring up santa clause, no super bowl rings, dream team, and andy reid weight jokes. You fail on multiple levels due to your inferiority complex. It’s not your fault, being a New Yorker makes you instantly ignorant from day 1. You learn to live in cramped up studios and over pay for everything and yet get no luxury out of it. We get it… See at least Redskins fans use recent news to insult us. The only real moronic skins fan is logicalvoice but the rest can actually play ball. NY Giants fans are just fat, dumb, and lazy. Thats why we hate you New York Giants fans.

  24. The only thing worse then the cowboys and redskins is that other team that ratted out the cowboys and redskins and had them penalized for cap violations. Disgusting display of sportsmanship is what we all have come to loath from the giants and their fat gyro eating fans. And as we witness the dismantling of their team we now behold the era of Chip. One of league domination.

  25. This isn’t news, he’s just entertaining the media. Put down your pitchfork vagiants fans. Too many of you get offended so easily over nothing

  26. Wow. All these butt hurt Giants fans crying on here. Man you are sensitive……and hypocritical. Flip flopping on him just like you do with A-rod.

  27. That’s cool K.P.
    I already hate you….
    May the rest of your career be filled with injuries…😀
    Die eagles die…
    Hell with the redskins…
    And how bout dem girls…

  28. Did I read some make a snowball reference on here. Hahaha you cant be serious. Remember they may have thrown snowballs but vagiants fans throw ice balls. Selective memory I guess

  29. Not sorry to see you go Kenny, you stunk it up last year…wouldn’t be surprised to see you get cut by the new regime in Philly !!!

    Any of you NY and NJ meatballs know what tongue in cheek means?

  31. LOL I love the Philly jabs on this site. The people who are quick to critisize for not being tolerant are the same people who are overly judgement all for lessor issues. It’s pretty fun to go back and read the hypocracy from the people lol.

    News flash To Philly fan… At least pick a side and pick an argument. You look like an idiot when you support an argument in one post and then bash a similar one a few moths later.

    Case in point the DR-C signing lol. Stay classy folks.

  32. In present time:
    A one year contract for peanuts on KP is a much better move than a 3 year 8 mill on Cullen Jenkins–dude will not help to stop the run.

    NFC East as I see it:
    Redskins
    Eagles
    Cowboys(They own 3rd place)
    Ginas

  33. Let’s recap, you’re in a 1 year deal, on a team that is projected to go 8-8 at best?

    I don’t think it matters Kenny, especially if you get injured again. You’ll be in another city next year learning how to hate someone else.

  34. Who cares? Kenny was laughing and having fun with reporters when he said it. Bottom line this is a very talented football player when healthy which right now is a big if.

    Winning is hard. Every division has to carry the burden of at least one team that hasn’t been able to crack the code on success even once since the late 60s.

  36. good luck, Kenny.

    you played very well for the Giants when you could play.

    rest up and let your body recover this coming year

  37. dont worry kenny ,,, her is a few other things you will hate as an eagle also .. umm winning ,, umm super bowls and women .. later fruit cake … NYG all day every day

  38. Well damn! Idk what to think abou lt it.. The way he said it makes me think its just to get accepted within the fan base and locker room bec he earned a ring w us.. It’s only a 1 ur deal so it doesn’t make sense to burn a bridge bec we all know whoever Philly gets off nygs don’t do much..but it does sting as a fan favorite amongst giants fans.. Ohh well enjoy watching Eli send bombs over your head twice next year!!

  39. Ah grow up and talk properly like an adult and Pro.. we all know if the eagles decide to cut u in september and the Giants start flirting with the idea of signing you, you’ll get down on your knees and apologize. Its not a new thing. You nfl players talk down another when u sign elsewhere but then when all things fall apart, you quickly start to retrack everything u said..lol..pathetic..make up ur minds

  40. Kenny, you ‘ll hat Philly fans much sooner than Gmen. It ‘s a given.And that car passing you on the Jersey turmpike…that’s Brandon Jacobs driving his “fassass car”………. ahead of the Repo man.

  41. The comments below are fueled by all the Super Bowl Championships the Eagles have won…..on second thought, never mind….hahaha

    EJ says:Mar 15, 2013 8:44 PM

    He will learn that it is pretty easy to hate the New Jersey Giants.

    This is the NFC east, you better hate the “Girly Men”.
    ——————————————–

  42. You will hate them even more when Elite Eli goes deep to Cruz, Nicks, Randle and your burned

    You went from playing for Champions to playing for the only team in East that has Never Ever won a ring

    If you were worth anything you would still be part of Big Blue notSlim Green

  43. As a Jets fan I love & tolerate Eagles fans & the organization like an annoying little brother always creating mischief but never quite living up to the family’s expectations of him.

    The Giants fans & organization are more like the know-it-all moronic uncle who you have no choice but to interact with but gives you some good laughs & good times at an outing, but you don’t want him staying over your house & ultimately you just have to accept him as part of the extended family.

    Living in Atlanta its easy to hate the Falcons fans & organization. They are like that fair weather friend who only comes around when things are going well & have no substance or staying power and you never hear from them when things go wrong.

  44. Bobonmycob…

    How about this for relevant… Your front office sucks, threw away millions of dollars on a terrible team, and now you’re taking the Giants scraps to rebuild. Is that a recent enough joke for you? We are laughing at you every single year, and your anger shows we are right..

    Fat, lazy, and dumb?…. Save up your allowance and actually make the trip up the turnpike…. I’ll guarantee you a suite ticket to the Giants vs Eagles…. And when you show up, you won’t find any man or woman at my massive tailgate that is fat, lazy, or dumb. I realize you can’t afford suite tickets like I can, so this will be a revolutionary experience for you…

    Bwhahahaha! Who watches the game from a suite? Talk about lame. Only girls and queers do that.

    Further confirming nohopeleft is an Internet tough guy

  46. Dallassux

    never once did I attempt to act like a tough guy on this thread..

    the suite allows you indoor/outdoor access… so when I want a beer or have to hit the bathroom, I don’t have to wait. Otherwise I’m outside…. That makes me queer? No bro… What you’ve confirmed is your girl would rather be with me in the suite.

    Nice attempt at trying to defame me, but you’re showing your true rainbow colors.

    LOL!!! ok tuff guy!!! Scrub team? There’s only ONE real scrub team in the NFC East homie, the one the Iggles straight DOMINATED over the last 14 or so years, The New Yawk foozeball GNATS! Compare the W/L records between the two teams over that time frame and a picture of complete SERVITUDE develops! Oh, and before you bring up your measly Superbowl rings, here’s a NEWSFLASH for ya Squid-lid, YOUR TEAM GOT LUCKKKKYYYYYYY!!! Tom Coughlin must have visited a witchdoctor and sold Eli’s soul to the Darklords for those championships. Unless you’re one of those typical New Yawkah’s who THINKS Eli and Tyree practiced that lucky helmet grab? Or that that lucky bounce against S.F. was on purpose? Well, yer luck has run out as evidenced by your Superbowl Chump Fraud Squad being MANHANDLED by EVERYONE last season. INCLUDING by the scrubby 4-12 Iggles! NEW YAWK GNATS are the joke of the East schooly! LOL!!!

    how delightful

    ———————————————————

    The real delight is how the only thing Eagles fans have to celebrate is a meaningless regular season game from 2010. That was the last game they won that season and the next two seasons were 8-8 and 4-12 gems. Meanwhile the Giants responded the next season by winning another Super Bowl. So yeah delightful is a good word to use. Good choice.

  49. Two thumbs down already!!! Awww, wassamattah New Yawk fans? Truth hurt? WhenEVER you say to yourselves “at least we won two championships in the last two decades”, ask yourselves THIS: Would we have won those SB championships IF we had to play the Iggles for them? Yeah, EXACTLY! Your W/L record against us in the last 14 years speaks VOLUMES to just how bad we OWN you. Face it, you get ZERO respect from Philly. ZEEEERO! And you know WHY and it EATS at you and you HATE us for this! You go on and HATE your betters and cry into your Jerk Chicken Chunky soup. LOL!!!!

  50. This thread is THE EMPTY TROPHY CASE CLAN at its best..

    The only thing that matters in this game is rings. The Eagles have zero. Pointing at your rival and saying we got lucky is a joke… Every championship team has luck. Every championship team has lost to a division rival along the way to their title. The bottom line is the Giants got it done twice in the last 6 years, and the Eagles haven’t in almost 50 years.

    When an organization has one goal amongst all of its employees, and can’t accomplish that goal, there is a word for that in the English language.

    FAILURE.

    Your first sentence says it all.

    — Inferiority complex Jets fan.
    — “Tolerates” Eagles fans because you’re both bottom of the barrel types.

  52. Hoagiebastage:

    When is the last time the Giants had a losing record? I’ll wait for you to google it since I KNOW you don’t know the answer.. Laughing stock of the NFC East is the only team that has no rings, and that is you. Skins, Boys, and Giants fans agree on this… You are the odd team out.

    You sound so dumb.

  53. @NoHopeleft

    “The only thing that matters in this game is rings. ”

    Yup. What counts EQUALLY is HOW those rings get gotten. The Pat’s rings are tarnished because of Spygate. Your rings are laughed at because your Gomer Pyle looking NON elite QB got VERY LUCKY against the Pat’s and your team had some VERY LUCKY breaks against WAY better teams in the 2011 Playoffs. Your team showed us EXACTLY who they REALLY were last season. Your luck has run out home skillet. You have my permission to cry in your pillow now…

  54. @nohopeleft

    I guess I was asking TOO much to have a GNAT’S fan understand what was actually written. Try reading this SLOWLY this time OK? Or maybe you can have the person who takes care of you explain this to you…You have a LOSING record against the EAGLES in the last 14 years. The Eagles are a BETTER team than the Gnats on “any given Sunday”. That’s the cold hard FACTS Chumley. And if you GOOGLE that, you will REALIZE it once and for ALL. Again, your LUCKY SB wins mean NOTHING in Philly. You scrubs get ZEEEEERO respect from us and just about every other team in the league. Why is it you think that Eli is NOT considered elite by his peers? I’ll give you a hint, LUCK is NOT a skill. Got it?

  55. Only thing this injury-prone fool needs to learn to hate is the bench…that’s the only thing his ass is going up against!!

    At least Mundy can stay on the field.

    Go Big Blue
