“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.”
Antrel Rolle joined “Joe and Evan” and called Giants running back Andre Brown “the player of the game” in Sunday’s victory over the Raiders.
Antrel Rolle clarified that he’s against bullying, and that Martin is not as much to blame as Incognito. He did maintain, however, that Martin “does take some accountability.”
“Richie Incognito, is he wrong? Absolutely,” Rolle told Joe & Evan. “But I think the other guy is just as much to blame because he’s allowed it to happen.”
Most experts also had the Jets penciled in as 3-6 heading into their bye. Muhammad Wilkerson and Co. obviously had other ideas, beating two of the three first-place teams they faced during the hardest part of their schedule.
He perpetuated maybe the greatest fraud in sports history. But he claims that he did it for all the right reasons.
“I think the pressure is on now more than ever,” the two-time Pro Bowler told Joe & Evan. “In my eyes, we have to win out. That’s the way I look at it. I’m sure that’s the way our team looks at it. We have to win out.”
The Jets have had some incredible moments through seven weeks of the season, but they remain a work in progress. Nobody knows this more than defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson and linebacker DeMario Davis.
“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.”
The problem for the 3-3 and enigmatic Jets is they are starting what is likely a season-defining stretch of games — three straight against first-place teams. Muhammad Wilkerson said the team is well aware of the daunting task ahead.
“There were a lot of bogus calls in that game,” Rolle told Benigno and Roberts. “I will admit, there were a lot of calls that should not have been made.”
As far as his own play is concerned, Eli Manning has said things aren’t as bad as they seem. Terry Bradshaw disagrees.
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.
Wilkerson was docked $15,785 for roughing the passer, while Coples was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness. Both were surprised at the fines, especially since no penalties were called on the field.
By now you’ve heard: Antrel Rolle thinks the Giants can salvage their season by running the table after an 0-4 start. He’s on a mission to make everyone believe in Big Blue — even some in his own locker room.
