The New York Giants are 0-5, and team captain and safety Antrel Rolle isn’t happy.
“We need to pick it up. Get our head out of our a– and pick it up,” Rolle said Sunday according to Matt Ehalt via ESPN.com “That’s the reality of it. We’re 0-5 and we’re losing games right here and this is not Giants football that we’re playing.”
Even without Michael Vick – who was lost to a hamstring injury in the second quarter – the Philadelphia Eagles rolled, beating the Giants 36-21.
“I’m not feeling good about anything. We’re 0-5 right now. I don’t look at little things that take place throughout the game. I look at W’s and L’s,” Rolle continued. “Doesn’t matter what I do as an individual. Doesn’t matter what any one of us do as individuals. It’s about a team effort. Right now we’re just not putting it out there on the field.”
New York has yet to give up less than 31 points this season, so the frustration is warranted. Quarterback Eli Manning threw another three interceptions, upping his total on the year to 9 – with just six touchdown passes.
As if those stats weren’t abysmal enough, ESPN Stats and Info has another gem.
Giants have allowed 182 points through 5 games, most since the 1961 Raiders allowed 187

Things are not going well for Giants’ Nation, to say the least.
