After Antrel Rolle signed with the Giants, he expressed how excited he is to be playing with Kenny Phillips. Both attended the University of Miami (The U) and seem to have been friends before the deal got done. There is no question that with a healthy Phillips in the mix, the G-Men have one of the best safety combos in the league. All of the Giants fans out there are pulling for Kenny Phillips to make a speedy and full recovery. Reports came out last month saying that he was ahead of schedule in his rehab. That is good news for the team and fans. As I have said repeatedly, I still believe that Big Blue will grab another safety in the 2010 NFL Draft. As much as we love Phillips, as of right now and today, he is still out of the mix. The team must prepare itself, as if Phillips will not be on the field. Even though, we all hope he will be.
