    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.

    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...

    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.
