KP was the best safety this preseason, he had the most tackles out of anyone. PW have great instinct being a balhawk and I will be happy if we signed him but no way did he out play KP

Phillips can still get better. The talent is there. Just tackle.

Kenny Phillips at 100% health is as good or better than any safety we've had since Darren Shraper.

Its always been about him being healthy.

If we can get Phillips and Byrd at 100%, it might be our best safety tandem ever, or close to it.

I agree...and he also seemed to know the scheme better than those who have been here. He knew where to be and like you said is versatile to play either FS or SS. I honestly feel like the defense just got a little better.

Re: Saints Resign S Kenny Philips

Kenny Phillips is absolutely an upgrade over Rafael Bush. In fact, as wrong as it sounds... The FO is probably pretty happy they found such an easy way to bring him back and get him on the field.

The only knock I remember from Giants fans was that he occasionally free-lances and gets burnt, and will draw a few helmet to helmet flags. He's a bit of a headhunter.

Does anyone else remember that about him?

He is a big time hitter, I don't recall too many complaints about him. Would have been a frequent pro-bowl type player but the injuries took him out of football for multiple years. Might be a blessing in disguise for us, hate to say that because I like Bush but Kenny is a better coverage safety and just as good playing the run.

Re: Saints Resign S Kenny Philips

Phillips is just a stop-gap solution anyway because Byrd will be back soon... Hahahaha, I thought I could keep a straight face saying that but I was wrong lol.
