When the New York Giants were 0-4, safety Antrel Rolle believed his team could win the remaining 12 games of the season. Now at 0-6, Rolle has something else to say.
Said Rolle on WFAN, via the New York Daily News:
This is my fourth year being a part of the Giants and what we do is we lead. Let’s not let that be our mindset that we have to hang in there for dear life at the end of every game and make it so close. Go out there and you blow their ass out early. Put them in a panic mode. Put their backs up against the wall.
While Rolle certainly cannot openly through in the towel, the Giants haven’t been in danger of blowing out anyone this season. And with the exception of last week’s 27-21 Thursday night loss against the Chicago Bears, the Giants haven’t exactly been in a position to “hang in there.” If anything, the opposite has been true, as the Giants’ Week Three 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers serves to prove.
Rolle did admit in he interview that talk is cheap and the Giants must “go out there and play the game.” This is sound advice, and probably advice Rolle should follow before his next statement after next week’s loss.
