Kayvon Thibodeaux has been with the NY Giants for less than a year, but he’s already learned just how amazing the rivalry is with the Phildelphia Eagles. Throughout his debut season, the No. 5 overall pick had people all over Philly trying to bring him down and troll him whenever they had the opportunity to do so.
That’s why Thibodeaux decided it was time to give them a taste of their own medicine. On Sunday night, the Eagles had a shot to capture their second Super Bowl title in team history, but they blew a double-digit lead and watched the Chiefs raise the Lombardi Trophy.
We don’t have to tell you that stung for so many people out there, but Big Blue supporters were loving every minute of it. It turns out Thibodeaux also had a big smile on his face after the final whistle as well.
Eagles fans are furious with Kayvon Thibodeaux after their Super Bowl defeat
Thibodeaux has a huge personality and he’s not going to back down from anyone. Eagles fans were ripping him to shreads after their team took down the Giants in the Divisional Round. Even players were tossing jabs at Big Blue, but now Thibodeaux and Co. can sit back and relax knowing that the Chiefs were able to get the job done.
Thibodeaux can have all the fun he wants right now, but you know his focus will quickly shift to offseason workouts soon. The pass-rusher had a fantastic second half of the season and he’ll hope to build on that leading up to next campaign.
In Year 2, people in East Rutherford are hoping that Thibodeaux can take a big step forward and post some bigger numbers than what he did in 2022. Last season, Thibodeaux recorded 49 tackles and four sacks in 14 games. He fell way short of his sacks goal for the campaign, but something tells us he’ll see that number grow in impressive fashion next fall.
As for Philly supporters, they now have even more reason to boo the Giants defensive stud at Lincoln Financial Field next season, but Thibodeaux isn’t worried about that at all.
