    Giants' Antrel Rolle Says The Defense Needs To Be More Physical Against The Redskins'

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...ays_the_d.html

    Excerpt: "
    In their Week 7 matchup at MetLife Stadium, the Redskins were dominant on the ground. Led by rookie running back Alfred Morris and fellow rookie sensation Robert Griffin III, Washington confused the Giants with a unique option attack and slashed through the defense to the tune of 248 rushing yards. Morris registered 22 carries for 120 yards. Griffin needed just nine rushes for 89 yards. Still, the Giants won 27-23.

    They meet again on Monday night and Antrel Rolle believes the solution for stopping the run is simple: the Giants need to be more physical.

    "Well, I think we have to be more dominant," Rolle said today in a radio interview on WFAN. "We have to understand how to try to attack them and how they're going to try to come downhill and make sure we're the most physical group on the field. That's pretty much it: Winning your battle, do your job and make sure you're the most physical football team and everything else will take care of itself."

    Morris, a sixth-round pick out of Florida Atlantic, has rushed for 982 yards and six touchdowns through 11 games. Griffin has 642 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

    Griffin, of course, isn't limited to just making plays with his feet. RGIII torched the Cowboys and Eagles defenses each of the last two weeks through the air, tossing four touchdown passes in each win. He now has 16 touchdowns to just four interceptions and has thrown for 2,504 yards. His completion percentage is at 67.5, an astounding number for a rookie signal caller.

    "I wouldn't say he's been the toughest [matchup]. I think he's definitely been the most agile we've faced," Rolle said from Miami where he will be for the next couple days getting treatment on his knee before returning for practice Thursday. "But all those guys, they present their own threats. All those guys are great quarterbacks in their own ways. You're going to have some that are going to be more accurate than others, some that are going to have stronger arms, some that are going to extend the play longer than others. And he's definitely a guy that can extend the play. He can make each and every play. All guys are great quarterbacks. Each guy just presents different threats and challenges." Read more...

    That stadium is going to be loud. This is probably the most meaningful game they have had there in a long time.

    This could be our most important game to date this season. Did we get the ship righted against the Packers? The next game should tell us.

    Eh, yes and no. They might lose this game and make us all forget about last week and then come on strong in the final 4 games. Last year everyone thought they blew it when they lost to Washington at home making them 7-7. Then look what happened.

    I'm not suggesting this is a make or break game, it's not. But did we turn the corner, this game should give us that answer

    Maybe. I'm just used to this team being inconsistent. I could see them lose this game and then maybe finally beat the Saints. Then maybe they go on the road in a dome and beat the Falcons. It would not surprise me is all I'm saying. Actually losing to Washington this year would not be the same as losing to them last year though. Not that any loss is good, but last year was a head scratcher. Hey, they won the Super Bowl anyway.

    Remember all the hype prior to us playing at Carolina. How this was going to be their benchmark game. The most meaningful game for them at Home in years and years. This was going to be their coming out party and to put the league on notice by beating the defending SB champs in primetime. Howd that work out for Cam and the boys.
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    We took that WILD Crowd out of it EARLY in that game. Most of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters of that game you could hear a pin drop in that Stadium. The only cheering was from the Giants fans that were present, other then that a lot of their fans hit the parking lots early. I think we need to do the same at Washington. The Road Warriors will go in their and show them whos boss early on so they dont get any ideas about an upset/


    need to defeat their spirit and break their Will early on. thats the key. dont want to get into a tight game where the crowd is going wild at the end.

    We need to score a fast TD in our first series like we did vs GB. That fake end-around into a screen was completely unexpected from KG...
