The New York Football Giants are stumbling through the early season again in 2014. Their inferior play thus far has become a reminder of the shortcomings that plagued the team last season. As if righting a sinking ship was not enough for Big Blue to handle, in come the undefeated Houston Texans and their $100 million man, J.J. Watt.
“I challenge all the fans in New York to be louder. And you know what? In order for them to be louder, we have to give them something to be loud about.”
“We need more fight. I feel like the team needs more fight. We need more attitude … I think we’re relying on our talent way too much as opposed to going out there and being dominant, being feisty, having that dog.”
Since the opening of training camp, the Giants have been boasting that their defense has the potential to be one of the NFL’s best. Antrel Rolle & Co. are going to get a chance prove it Monday.
Safety Antrel Rolle was not at all happy about his organization’s decision to cut ties with the 24-year-old, and he wasn’t afraid to speak his mind about the matter.
Coming off his best season, New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle has reason to smile.
To get you ready for the upcoming campaign, WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts did their show from Giants camp.
“I would love to retire a Giant,” Rolle said. “That’s my first and prominent goal. This is definitely where I want to be and this is where I belong.”
The Giants running back had trouble keeping it together during his farewell press conference on Wednesday. But he said his were tears of joy.
To prepare you for the upcoming campaign, WFAN host Mike Francesa is broadcasting live from Giants camp on Tuesday afternoon.
Antrel Rolle has a Super Bowl ring. So does Prince Amukamara. And newcomer Walter Thurmond. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie knows the ropes. Now, they all need to blend together.
Who’s house? Rolle’s house! “The way I look at the locker room, you know, these are my babies,” the outspoken Big Blue safety said Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio.
The Giants’ safety was honored at the Thurman Munson Awards Dinner at the Grand Hyatt in Manhattan on Tuesday and told reporters he watched Super Bowl XLVIII with Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley.
The Broncos’ quarterback was chosen on all 50 ballots from media members who regularly cover the NFL. Manning also was an All-Pro in 2003, ’04, ’05, ’08, ’09 and last season.
Jon Beason wants to return to the Giants, and it seems the feeling is mutual. Big Blue has “already begun the process of trying to retain” him, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
