Strahan was at his Rex-ripping best on Wednesday, but that wasn't the only thing he said. The always-talkative Giants great was not completely against safety Antrel Rolle's Sunday night tirade.

No Tom Coughlin didn't like Rolle's comments. But to Strahan, a team filled with quiet leaders (think quiet Eli Manning and the careful-with-his-words Justin Tuck) could use Rolle, a guy who is willing to - and often does - speak out regularly.

"I think the way Eli is playing shows that he's a leader, but he's not the vocal kind," Strahan said. "You need to find guys who will put everything on their back, who can talk and handle conflict but still perform . . . Antrel can definitely be that guy."

To Strahan, the Giants' recent Jekyll-and-Hyde act has happened because they haven't truly had a vocal leader this season. Tom Coughlin can play rigid disciplinarian all he wants, but at some point, a player needs to be willing to call out his teammates for mistakes or poor habits.

And that's exactly what Rolle did on Sunday.

"As a coach, you can coach guys as much as you want," Strahan said. "Players have to make other guys accountable.

"Thatís what they brought him (Rolle) here for. For the little bit of time Iíve been around him, he has an edge. I think thatís what the Giants miss sometime. They miss that edge. The Giants have to develop that edge. Even if they beat the Jets and they beat Dallas and go to the playoffs, if you donít have tnat edge and donít win, you donít go far."

Here's the problem, and Strahan said it best unintentionally:

"You need to find guys who will put everything on their back, who can talk and handle conflict but still perform . . . "

Antrelle hasn't performed at all this season, and it seems the more he talks, the worse the Giants are.

The only 2 people who should say anything on the Giants is Eli and JPP, everyone else hasn't earned a chance to speak for the Giants.

I do not have a problem with Rolle talking and trying to get everyone pumped up. However, he also needs to step up when he screws up and that has occurred quite often this season. Often out of position and not reading the coverages. If he is gonna talk then he needs to back it up as well!!

Yes, IF Rolle backed up his talk I'd be fine with it. But he doesn't, and the team does not respond well to him.

JPP needs to take the reins of captain and leader of this defense.

Yea, someone needs to call out Rolle for his missed tackle on the 3rd and 17

Antonio Pierce use to run his mouth all the time....but every1 respected him because he backed it up. Pierce bleeded blue and never threw teammates or the organization under the bus....Rolle has, and hasnt backed up his talk. Pierce played with a chip on his shoulder because alot of teams passed on him, but Rolle comes to the Giants thinking hes Mr.KnowItAll because he went to a Superbowl with the Cardinals.

I remember people being agitated at AP and Strahan for speaking their minds to the media. Now when they're off the team all we remember is the good??

Whats to say that Rolle doesnt 'bleed blue'?? Everything I hear out of his mouth sounds to be from his heart and non malicious

When this year has antrell played his natural position, he was a CB in college that got switched to Safety. let him roam. we are devastated at the corner position until i see him play a natural safety position hes got a pass from me and obviously from the organization which is why hes not cut by now.

fans on this message board are like women they dont know what they want they want a vocal leader but he cant be too vocal its not classy, they want a leader by example but if their hurt then its like man go out there and play with a broken neck you bum. i think tuck said it best "everyone's tough when its with someone else's body." that goes for fans as well

Antrel, however, is right. Most interesting comment from Strahan was that coaches can only do so much, you need field leaders to make everything click.

Antrel has also rarely played his natural safety position since injuries decimated the secondary

Read underneath here. I've always felt this team never had someone who jumped into strahans role as our " Leader". Tuck is not it, Rolle is not it, cause he doesn't do it. Thats a hugeissue on this team; no one take accountability becaue no one is consistently playing football except a few guys. You know who they are. Thats where our LEADER should come from:one of the guys who consistently plays football not talks football.</P>


Go JPP!!!</P>
