All of the things that I did with the Giants, I would have expected it a little bit sooner, but it’s still an honor,” he told the Associated Press on Wednesday. “Things come in the time in which they’re meant to come and not at the time in which you want them to come, soms. That’s the way I’m looking at it. I don’t want it to look as if I’m ungrateful or I’m not honored by it, because I truly am. I probably would’ve expected it to come a little bit sooner than it did.

The MetLife Stadium ceremony will take place in the middle of the Giants taking on the Philadelphia Eagles. He’s expecting Eagles fans to be in attendance.

“So, if they boo, it’s an honor for me that they’re booing. I’ll take it as that. I always loved playing the Philadelphia Eagles. They were always good for a few sacks a game,” hy het gesê.

Do I watch every game as if I am still playing and the biggest fan of the Giants? Absoluut,” hy het gesê. “Do I get frustrated like every other fan out there? Absoluut. Do I look at it and think that I could get off my couch sometimes and go play and help the team? Absolutely.
