    GIANTS' ANTREL ROLLE DEFLECTS BLAME IN SECONDARY'S BREAKDOWN SUNDAY NIGHT

    GIANTS' ANTREL ROLLE DEFLECTS BLAME IN SECONDARY'S BREAKDOWN SUNDAY NIGHT

    "On Sunday night, the Giants miraculously emerged victorious after overcoming
    a 12-point deficit with 5:41 remaining in a must-win game against the rival
    Cowboys. And to do so, Eli Manning needed to engineer two brilliant drives after
    the Giants
    secondary was victimized for a 50-yard touchdown after another breakdown in
    coverage
    .


    On the play, there was some miscommunication between cornerback Corey Webster
    and safety Antrel Rolle. Webster released Bryant assuming Rolle was going to
    help out over the top. But Rolle jumped on an underneath route, leaving Bryant
    wide open.




    In his weekly Tuesday radio interview on WFAN, Rolle deflected blame on the
    play, saying "I was exactly where I was supposed to be" on Bryant's
    touchdown.




    "Iím not saying I donít make mistakes, because I do, but Iím going to be
    where Iím supposed to be," Rolle said.




    The safety also blamed fans and commentators for jumping to conclusions
    without knowing what they're talking about.




    "At the end of the day, there are just fans out there that don't understand
    the ins and outs of football," Rolle said.




    "[Commentators] always want to point the finger like they know what theyíre
    talking about, but they donít half the time," Rolle added, saying he was
    speaking for players across the league.




    At the same time, Rolle said he knows everyone needs to be in sync every
    play.




    "In order for us to get to where we want to get to, we need to be on the same
    page at the same time."




    He added, "I'm not talking about the offense, I'm talking about the defense.
    The offense has been saving us."




    Rolle said he cares about what fans and other people say about him because "I
    take pride in my play."




    Some other bits from the interview:




    -- Rolle refused to comment on Ahmad Bradshaw and his suspension.




    -- Rolle said he's Jason Pierre-Paul's biggest fan and that the second-year
    defensive end should definitely be in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.




    "I don't see anyone playing better than him, and that's across the league,"
    he said. He's definitely the MVP of our defense, hands down."




    -- Rolle called Eli Manning "elite" and said his opinion of the quarterback
    was cemented when in an interview Manning said he'd rather have the ball with
    the game on the line than watching the other team have the ball in that
    situation.




    "That dude, man, you can say whatever you say about him, No. 26 is No. 10's
    biggest fan at the end of the day," he said.




    --As for this weekend against the Redskins, Rolle said he wouldn't guarantee
    a win, but he didn't "plan" on losing either. When the interviewer brought up
    Rolle's quote from earlier in the season after the Giants fell in the home
    opener in Washington when Rolle said the Giants would beat the Redskins 95 out
    of a 100 times, Rolle corrected him and said it was 99, not 95.


    After doing some careful math, it's then mathematically impossible for the
    Giants to lose Sunday. But you didn't hear it from me."

    Actually he is wrong. They could lose this one, then win the next 198 games vs the redskins, which would mean the Giants win 99 of 100.

    Rolle says "at the end of the day" way to many damn times.

    Its when he says stuff like this that upsets people.

    People are smart enough to know that either he or Cweb made a mistake that should never happen. This is plain as day from the tape and its condescending to say people "dont know what they are talking about."

    People are also smart enough to know Dez Bryant isnt supposed to be running alone uncovered in our defensive backfield. Mistakes happen but its late in the season and its not like this mistake happened by some rookie or recent aquisition. It happened by the 2 DBs who have spent the most time in the system. By the 2 Dbs who make more money than all the rest combined. So get over youself rolle, man up, admit you guys messed up and say "it wont happen again", and dont let it happen again.

    Wouldn't that mean 198 of 200?

    198/200ths is equal to 99/100ths. Same thing, just 2x as long a time frame.

    even tho he probably shouldn't have said it..
    i don't doubt the validity of his statement.

    webster always has a couple games per year with 2 pics and shuts people down.

    but the rest of the time he is always 5 yards away from whoever he covers...or blows the coverage.

    he is better at man to man than zone cuz
    he really doesn't understand his assignments or geddit.
    the playbook i mean.

    i guess that's as polite as i can put it.
    when the aliens finally come to conquer us ....
    i hope that their weapons of choice are Gibsons and Fenders

    I know what your saying but if only 100 games comes into question then 200 games shouldn't be part of the equation....

    Man I hate math...How did I get involved here...lol

    How about if Rolle talks to his D more than he talks to the press?

    Maybe burning the boats isn't the greatest idea just yet.
