An independent arbitrator ruled Saturday to ban A-Rod for a full season, including the playoffs. “The number of games sadly comes as no surprise, as the deck has been stacked against me from day one,” Rodriguez said in a statement.
WFAN host Mike Francesa says he expects Alex Rodriguez and his legal team to continue fighting the 162-game and postseason suspension.
Eli Manning and Antrel Rolle won’t make excuses for the Giants failing to make the playoffs this season. But they do like the fact that the team is playing hard with nothing to play for.
“I’ve gotta see more from Matt Harvey. I think he even thinks of himself as, like, the king of the city here right now. He’s gotta do a lot more before I can look at him that way.”
As far as Antrel Rolle is concerned, the Giants’ disappointing 2013 season has not been about messages not getting through, locker room strife or divisiveness, the things the media love to point to first.
“We don’t want to see a cold Super Bowl,” the four-time Super Bowl champion told the radio duo. “We don’t want to see what we saw in Philadelphia (this past weekend). What good can come from that?”
“To be honest with you, I don’t care,” the captain told WFAN radio. “Whoever wins, wins. Whoever wins, they deserve to win. To me, to be honest with you, I don’t care who is the better of the two.”

“Things are not gonna work out in your favor all the time. That doesn’t mean that you hang your head low. You gotta go out there, and you get better. You play football, you play with pride.”
Muhammad Wilkerson said Tuesday that his defense, as good as it has been this season, could be doing more to help out beleaguered Geno Smith.
“With Dallas, we all understand that it’s a division opponent, it’s a division rival. But at the same time, like I said, every game from this moment on is a must-win game.”
If Muhammad Wilkerson is nothing else, he’s honest and calls ‘em like he sees ‘em. And heading into a game at Baltimore, he doesn’t see the Jets as being as good as they should be.
“The goal is to win the division,” Wilkerson told Joe & Evan. “And like I said, these last seven games we feel we can win … I’m confident in myself and my teammates that we’re gonna get the job done.”
