Eagles Wake-Up Call: New DBs Go From Foe To Friend

You can tell that Kenny Phillips isn’t able to just flip the switch. He was drafted by the Giants, played five years for them. He was wired to hate the Eagles, and now he is one.

“Yeah, it’s weird. It’s definitely weird,” said the veteran safety at his introductory press conference. “I can’t say I hate the Giants. When I was with the Giants I kind of disliked the Eagles. I guess I’ll learn to hate them.”

And the Eagles receivers?

“I didn’t like them,” said Phillips with a smile. “I respected every single one of them. I thought they had a great team.  Maclin and Celek and DeSean, you had to respect those guys because they went out there and made plays.
