NEW YORK (WFAN) – Antrel Rolle doesn’t want to blame Sunday’s bad loss to the Seattle Seahawks on overconfidence.

What it comes down to, says the Giants safety, is the Seahawks played a good game and the Giants didn’t.

Plain and simple.

But some things have to change, especially with the scrappy Buffalo Bills on tap.

“I think we need to come out there and we need to strike first,” Rolle told WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Tuesday. “We need to strike first and and, you know, we need to play with a little bit more attitude, a little bit more passion. (So) at the end of the game we’re not waiting so late to try to come back.”

Listen: Rolle with Joe and Evan

The Giants have been working week after week on their porous run defense — but it doesn’t seem to be improving. In fact, it might be getting worse.

According to Rolle, it comes down to understanding the scheme and individual players taking care of their own responsibilities.

“I think it’s something, you know, we have to put our heads together and figure out as a defense,” said Rolle. “We definitely get an ‘A’ for effort. But at end of the day, that’s not the only thing that takes place in a football game. You know, you need to play smart.”

The Giants know what the problem is, explained Rolle, and they know how to make it better. Now it comes down to execution.

“We just have to get better,” he said. “We’re gonna get better. That game is over and done with, we have to look forward to Buffalo this week.”
