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.

Veteran New York Giants’ safety Antrel Rolle finds himself in the final year of a five-year, $37 million contract he signed with the team before 2010. At 31 years old, Rolle remains not only the heart and soul of New York’s defense, he is the conscience of the franchise as well.
