  • Antrel Rolle Says Players Are To Blame, Not Coaches

    http://www.giants101.com/2012/11/14/...e-not-coaches/

    Excerpt: "After losing two straight games and falling to 6-4 on the season, the New York Giants have been facing a rather large amount of scrutiny and criticism. And, as it usually does, the vast majority of that has fallen on the shoulders of head coach Tom Coughlin, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. But while appearing on WFAN on Tuesday, safety Antrel Rolle said there's no justification for that as the players are the ones failing right now … not the coaches.

    "Like I told the coaches Monday, it doesn't really matter how hard you guys are going to be on us because right now at this point obviously we need it because we're not doing the simple things that we're being taught to do as a defensive unit," Rolle said.


    Rolle noted that many of their issues are correctable, and pointed out A.J. Green's 56-yard touchdown as an example. Although he would not specify a culprit (it was Stevie Brown, for what it's worth), Rolle admitted that it was a blown coverage and something completely avoidable." Read more...

      Stevie Brown was trying to make a play, it was just the wrong play at that particular time

        You know, sometimes I'm tired of hearing him talk, but its times like this that I like his style. This was a good read and good job by Rolle.

          Whatever else Rolle is, I think he's honest and tells is like it is

            Yeah, you can't harp on him for jumping a route because that's what Stevie Brown does.. I wish more players played like he did. Or at least the coaches let players play like he does. Not play 15 yards off and let them get 10 yards at a time. Of course, if we had Jonas on the team, he'd be able to take out the whole Oline by himself.. lol

              Congratulations Rolle, you've recognized one of the problems.

              Now do something about it...

              I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                of course, EVERYONE will ignore an actual player saying "its on us", and continue to talk about the bad playcalling, lack of david wilson, insistance of keeping dehiel in.

                blah, blah, blah, blah.

                    is it me, but anytime rolle talks trash to the other team we lose.
                    Don't take it personal, we're just debating.

                      Bingo! Perhaps if some can think about that before jumping to the Fire whatever coach stance, that game was on the players themselves.

                          honestly .....after watching the all 22 ....I put that more on Webster than anyone

                          Brown in clearly in his line of sight and not dropping into coverage

                          ok ....Brown bit on the play action ...but it is Coreys job to recognize that and run with their most dynamic player

                          everyone can say it is on Brown all they want.....I put it on Webster just as much

                            No question Webster gave up on the play which bothers me

                              I dont have all 22, but i remember a play where Nicks caught a deep slant across the middle while cruz ran a wheel route from the inside. The safety was eyeing in on where eli was looking and i couldnt help but feel if eli would have pump faked to nicks, he could have hit cruz deep down the side lines. Did you notice something like this while re watching the game?
