Get ready for Shaun Phillips to go spouting off at the mouth again. We face off against the Denver Broncos and we are bound to get a good quote or two this week from Phillips. Here is what he had to say this time around, via the UT.

“People call me a traitor because I went to Denver,” Phillips said. “Like, how am I traitor? Your team are traitors. They’re the ones who let you down by not signing me. What am I going to do? I’m not going to a Jacksonville Jaguar team. I’m going to go where I can have a chance to win. It just so happens Denver is in the conference. Hey, it is what it is. I’m here, and I’m happy to be here.”


Thanks Shaun for doing what you do. Time to talk this one out.

You all can destroy me on this one, but I think Phillips is right. The team didn’t bring him back, so he went off and did his own thing. If we wanted to keep him around, he would have come at a super cheap price and he probably would have helped out our defense tremendously this season. He leads the Broncos in sacks this season with 9. He has always been a good defensive player.

I never had anything against Shaun. Signing with the enemy sucked, but it is business and I can’t fault him for doing it. At least the fool didn’t sign with the Oakland Raiders. I also like how he clowned the Jaguars. Wish he threw us a bone and clowned the Raiders on that one.

I like Shaun, but on Thursday, he is on the wrong sideline and I am hoping that King Dunlap and D.J. Fluker take care of him.
