With the Denver Broncos coming to town, we get to see our boy Shaun Phillips all over again. This time he will be on the opposite side of the field playing with the enemy. It will be weird seeing him out there in the Broncos jersey.

Phillips gets a chance to hit his former quarterback this time around and here are his thoughts about it:

“Yeah. Me and Philip go way back to the Senior Bowl. We played against each other in the Senior Bowl and we were jawing back and forth. I think I hit him one play and the next play he threw a pass and he jawed back at me. So it’s just all out of friendly competition in football and I’m pretty sure I’m going to get a hit or two on him and I’m pretty sure he’s looking to make a play or two on me. It’ll be a little bit of jawing back and forth but all out of love because I admire Philip and I think he’s a great person and a great player.”

Phillips actually didn’t put his foot in his mouth this time around. I look forward to seeing him on the opposite side of the field and I am hoping that King Dunlap gets the best of him on Sunday. I wish he was still playing linebacker so that we could make him try to cover Antonio Gates.
