Joe & Evan
“If you made me go to Vegas right now, I would try to get the Dan Quinn action,” La Canfora told Joe & Evan.
The future Hall of Famer, as is his custom, was very conservative in his responses as he prepares his team to take on the Ravens in the NFL divisional playoffs on Saturday.
Coach Tom Coughlin and general manager Jerry Reese are getting one more chance to turn around the New York Giants — or else.
Co-owner John Mara confirmed that the two-time Super Bowl champion will return during a news conference on Tuesday, though he did say that he might not extend the 68-year-old’s contract.
“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.”
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.
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.

“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.”
Terry Bradshaw has no problem speaking his mind. The legendary QB took it to a new level Tuesday morning on WFAN radio, putting Roger Goodell on blast. And he didn’t stop there.
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.
“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.”
“Hopefully, one of these weekends, one of these Sundays, we’ll get a win,” the Jets defensive end said on WFAN radio Tuesday.
“Ben Roethlisberger, for sure,” the Hall of Famer told Joe & Evan in his weekly spot. “He’s big, he’s strong, he knocks off tackles.”
