NEW YORK (WFAN) — The Giants will head into Monday night’s game against the Vikings at MetLife Stadium looking for their first win.
Will this be it? Will Big Blue finally get its first win?
The Vikings are just 1-4, but the Giants aren’t favorites against any teams these days — except maybe the Jaguars. And their starting running back on Monday night might be 2013 seventh-round pick Michael Cox.
The Giants have to win eventually, right?
“We’re 0-6,” Giants safety Antrel Rolle told WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Tuesday. “We’ve dug a huge hole for ourselves, a very huge hole for ourselves. But the season’s not over for us yet. And that’s our mindset, that has to be our mindset. That has to be our only mindset, is going out here and taking it one game at a time and trying to get this first win under our belt.”
After the Giants started 0-4, the two-time Pro Bowler proclaimed that New York could go 12-0 to finish out the season. He’s not making statements like that anymore, but he is still adamant that his team’s season isn’t over.
“In my mind, the way I’m gonna approach this game — and the way everyone needs to approach this game — is that we’re fighting for dear life,” Rolle told Joe & Evan. “Our backs are against the wall. We’ve gotta go out here and we’ve gotta let it all hang out, and may the best man win. This season is not over for us, under any means.”
The G-Men have had a habit of falling behind early in games this season. The captain feels strongly that New York has to come out swinging on Monday night and put itself in the driver’s seat against a struggling Vikings squad.
“Go out there and you blow their a– out early,” Rolle told the radio duo. “Put them in a panic mode. Put their backs up against the wall. And that’s something right now, I think, with our mentality as a team, we haven’t gotten to yet. We haven’t gotten to, ‘OK, we’re a dominant team. Let’s go out here and blow their a– out.’ Bottom line. We’re capable of doing that as a team.”
