Kayvon Thibodeaux seemed to take aim at Giants fans after their comeback win over the Cardinals on Sunday.
“Even early in the game our own fans are booing us and giving up on us,” Thibodeaux said. “You start to realize that the only people that matter are the people in the room and the people who are really here for us, is us.”
Morash is still a believer in Thibodeaux, despite his lack of production after being a fifth overall pick, but he didn’t love Thibodeaux expressing some frustration with the reaction of the fanbase.
“It’s not insulting, but it’s another brick in the building that Kayvon didn’t need to put out there against himself,” Morash said. “Don’t add another brick to tick us off…I know I’m a little crazy, but I know I’m not alone in this, specifically with football. My entire week’s mood is often times determined on what the Giants do that previous week. We carry that with us….had they lost to the Cardinals and were 0-2, and I would have been a moping, miserable mess, and I don’t want to hear that ‘the only people that matter to us, is us,’ because it matters to me, man. I am with you, and I am living it.”
Tiki, from the perspective of a former Giant, said Thibodeaux probably shouldn’t have said what he said in front of a microphone, but says the players don’t take much stock in the fan investment in the moment.
“It doesn’t mean anything to an athlete,” Tiki said. “All that matters, is that he’s right.”
