Phillips Fined 10,000 For Illegal Hit

Kenny Phillips’ wallet will be a little thinner after this week. The safety was fined for an illegal hit on Redskins tight end Fred Davis. Phillips launched his shoulder into Davis’ head.

“I got bills to pay,” said Phillips, who plans on appealing. “They said I hit him in the head and the neck. They took 10,000 of my hard earned dollars. That’s not cool at all.

    This is getting ridiculous.
    The Giants are getting fined harder for less than any other team in the league and I really think someone should say something about it. I’m glad Philips commented like this, because Polamalu rolling around on the floor throwing a bevy of punches has gone completely unnoticed (though he was fined for a horsecollar tackle??).
    I mean Jacobs got fined twice the amount Wilkerson did for the same fight (that IMO was started by the Jets rookie), and now Rolle takes the biggest fine of the week for diving towards a guy who wasn’t yet touched and accidentally hit him with his helmet??
    Were these all smart plays? No, but the evidence shows that the Giants are taking a lot more heat from the NFL offices, might have something to do with Goodell hand picking the Eagles for Michael Vick (yes I went there) 🙂

    Phillips’ response sounds oddly similar to that of a past New York athlete. Anyone remember Latrell Sprewell when he was offered $8 million a year and said he has a family to feed and declined the money?? Granted Phillips makes ALOT less than that and this is a fine and he’s not turning down money, but just the way it was phrased “I got bills to pay” sounds similar.

    Just thought I’d throw that out there.
