Safety Kenny Phillips on the Giants offseason

Q: What do you think the chances of you coming back are?
A: I don’t know. That’s between the agent and the team. I’ll pretty much stay out of it.

Q: Do you think you’ve proved that the knee was a minor injury?
A: I would hope so. I mean coming back and being able to play in that last game, I think that showed a lot to prove that I’m still healthy and I can still play ball.

Q: How frustrating of a season was it for you?
A: It was frustrating. Some days better than others, but it’s just all part of the game and you have to deal with it.

Q: Do you go into the offseason with a blank slate and see what happens?
A: I have kind of a blank slate and whatever happens, happens. At the end of the day I know I’ll be playing somewhere, whether it be here or somewhere else. I will be playing football.

Q: Justin Tuck said that if the team made the playoffs you could have made a run. Do you think the team is close?
A: It doesn’t need tweaking, but if we play like we played yesterday, yeah. We can make an argument that we could have made a run if we got in. But we were so inconsistent this year you never know what you were going to get. We performed well yesterday, but we could have went out there next week and laid an egg. You never know, but I think some changes probably have to be made.

Q: What type of things do you think you might say about your future with the front office?
A: It’s funny. I just spoke with them and I didn’t really have much to say, to be honest. They spoke. They said some things. They asked me if I had any questions. I really didn’t. Just wait and see what happens.

Q: You met with Jerry?
A: Yeah.

Q: When they say they want you back it’s either they seem like they’re just saying it or they seem like they mean it. What was your sense?
A: It’s hard to say. I don’t know. After they move some people around and make some decisions, there’s no telling. Maybe they want me back. Maybe not, but that’s up to them.
