“We’re 0-6,” Giants safety Antrel Rolle said. “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.”
Rex Ryan’s motivational ploy of the week heading into Monday night’s game in Atlanta was demanding that his Jets put aside the brutal loss from the week before and just play with fearlessness. It’s safe to say they got the message.
Muhammad Wilkerson likes what he is seeing from the Jets, the team nobody gave a shot back when the season started. The big defensive end told WFAN on Tuesday that the 2-1 start is not an aberration.
“We’re all friends with one another,” Rolle said. “But are we going out there and fighting for the guy beside us? Absolutely not. There’s no way I can hide it, sugercoat it, whatever you want to say. There’s no way I can hide that.”
“We have a lack of excitement on the sideline,” the two-time Pro Bowler told reporters. “When I look up and down the sidelines, sometimes we’re in it and sometimes we’re not. I don’t know what the reason is for that.”
“This is our house, and we protect our house, and that’s just the way it goes,” Rolle said. “If we go out there and play consistently and play the way I know we know how to play as a team, then absolutely, we’ll be there without a doubt.”
WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts were live from Giants training camp at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on Monday. The duo chatted with Giants throughout the day as Big Blue prepares for the upcoming season.
“The locker room is so confident, guys are so confident,” DeVito said. “I have no doubt that we can win these three games, and then we’ll see wherever the chips fall.”
The newest Knick, Jason Kidd, joined WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on WFAN to talk about what role he’ll play with his new team.
You know it’s April baseball when….some of these teams are ranked!
The Giants are finally getting healthy on the defensive line and Eli Manning and company can match the Falcons offensively…
While it might seem Big Blue relies too heavily on Manning’s last-minute victory habit, safety Antrel Rolle insists it’s not that way it all.
Antrel Rolle admits the Giants haven’t been great. But they also haven’t been bad. And if not for a few plays, he says, New York “should easily be 5-1.”
Some things have to change for the Giants, especially with the scrappy Buffalo Bills on tap.
Drafted eighth overall by the Cardinals in 2005, Antrel Rolle told Joe and Evan it was good to be back at his old stomping grounds in Arizona. What made it better was New York’s stunning 31-27 comeback win.
