“I’m hoping that we can come to an agreement where I can retire a Giant, and more importantly, try to help this team win another Super Bowl before my tenure’s up.”
While many wonder whether the 32-year-old should be re-signed, Antrel Rolle has no doubts that he can still help Big Blue.
It’s too little, too late for the G-Men this season. But the three-time Pro Bowler is impressed with what he’s seen over the past two weeks and is excited about what it means for 2015.
OK, take a breath. If you haven’t been paying attention for the past two months – Giants rookie wideout Beckham really is THAT good.
As the New York Giants head toward another season without a sniff of the NFL playoffs, major changes appear to be on the way. What is in store for Big Blue’s defensive unit next year?
The Giants finally broke their nightmarish seven-game losing streak on Sunday, defeating the Titans handily for their first win since October 5. To say that Antrel Rolle is relieved would be an understatement.
“Those reporters, I know exactly who they are … so they’re gonna have to answer to me in person for taking what I said out of context.”
“In (defensive coordinator) Perry Fewell’s defense, when certain things go wrong throughout the course of a game, it then makes you hesitant to call certain things.”
“But in order for it to be a possibility we’ve gotta go out there and we’ve gotta play as a team. All three phases need to be on the same page at the same time.”
Antrel Rolle believes the Giants played with passion — something that he said had been lacking — and purpose in Seattle on Sunday. But the results still weren’t there.
Antrel Rolle didn’t try and avoid what was an obvious description after the Giants watched Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks run wild on Sunday.
His comments followed safety Antrel Rolle’s plea to teammates earlier this week on WFAN radio. While Rolle spoke of “passion,” JPP questioned his team’s pulse.
Heading into the second half of what has been a disappointing season, the New York Giants need a lot more than consistency on offense and fewer big plays allowed on defense.
“The entire team. I’m not saying that we’re not playing with passion. I’m saying we’re not playing with enough passion. We’re not playing with enough attitude.”
The Giants dropped the ball — literally — on a chance to jump back into the middle of the pack in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night.
